Small Town Christmas by Jill Shalvis, Hope Ramsey and Katie Lane

Title: Small Town Christmas

Series: Lucky Harbor 3.5, Anthology

Authors: Jill Shalvis, Hope Ramsey, Katie Lane

New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis headlines this touching anthology of Christmas stories as readers come home for the holidays to Lucky Harbor, WA; Last Chance, SC; and Bramble, TX.

Three heartwarming holiday stories to prove that love is the greatest gift of all  

Kissing Santa Claus
NASCAR driver Logan Perrish returns to Lucky Harbor, Washington, with love in his heart and a ring in his pocket. But can Sandy Jansen forget the past and give him a second chance? Or will Logan be spending another Christmas alone?

I’ll Be Home for Christmas
After ignoring the advice of Miz Miriam Randall, local matchmaker, Annie Roberts expects another hum drum holiday in Last Chance, South Carolina. But when a stray cat arrives in the arms of Army sergeant Matt Jasper, a calico named Holly  just may be the best matchmaker of all.

O Little Town of Bramble
All Ethan Miller wants for Christmas is to celebrate in Bramble, Texas, with family and friends. But when his childhood neighbor, Samantha Henderson, comes home for the holiday, Ethan realizes that the girl-next-door could be the girl of his dreams.

I have to say that this is one of the best Christmas anthologies I’ve read this year. It made me laugh and it made me cry. Everything I want in a Christmas book.

Logan and Sandy’s story was really cute and fun as Logan tries to convince her that he has sincere feelings for her and really wants her to be a permanent part of his life. I had fun reading the things that Logan does to convince Sandy he is serious.

Matt and Annie’s story however is probably my favorite story in the book. This is a heart warming story about a soldier that has come to deliver a Christmas present and ends up finding so much more. As I read this story I actually cried as Matt and Annie discovered their love for each other and the hope that they had for their future.

Ethan and Sam’s story is a sweet story about two people who have the opportunity to grab a future that they both want and are afraid to go after. The best part of this book is the way it ends. It’s so sweet and appropriate for a book that is all about Christmas.

Overall I really liked this book and am adding it to my collection of holiday stories. If you are looking for holiday read that hits all the right spots than you can’t go wrong with this one. It has it all, it touches your heart, is funny, and conveys what the holiday’s are all about.

If you are looking for a perfect holiday read than you can’t go wrong with this one.
