Blurb: Pretty Near Perfect by Jolene Perry
The last thing Norah needs is to be attracted to anyone – especially
in her deceased fiancé's parents' home. Collin’s starting a new career,
and has no business getting involved – especially while staying with
his roommate’s family, who very kindly offered to take him in for the
holidays. Unfortunately, you just don’t always pick the most convenient
time and place to fall for someone.
Six Days of Christmas by Kaylee Baldwin
When Natalie goes home with her best friend for Christmas, she
expects plenty of quiet time to work on a winning ad so she can turn her
dream internship into her dream job. Instead, she gets time-consuming
Christmas festivities, a house full of children, and Jimmy, her best
friend’s brother - someone who makes her question everything she’s
always thought she wanted.
Twist of Fate by Rachael Anderson
When a postcard meant for Kenzie winds up in Ty's mailbox, Ty's
faced with a decision. Should he tell her that her fiancé is breaking up
with her and let it ruin her favorite holiday, or should he do what
he’s wanted to do since he met her - make a move and hope that he can
win her over before she discovers there won’t be a wedding after all?
My Review: I absolutely loved this book when I first read it last year and decided that it was definitely going to be a re-read for me each Christmas. Having just finished it again, I was struck by how much I really enjoyed the stories and at how little I remembered from last year. It was like reading them for the first time all over again.
Pretty Near Perfect--Norah decides to spend Christmas with her deceased fiance's parents. She doesn't realize that falling for someone can happen when you least expect it.
I liked Norah and thought she had such a fun personality. She really grieved for her fiance and was nervous about spending time with his family, especially his brother--they were so much alike. Yet she handles things really well. I loved how she was able to relate to Collin, especially with his writing. They really seemed to understand one another.
Six Days of Christmas--Norah goes home with her best friend for Christmas and discovers that time can really change things.
I loved the traditions this family had in going all out and celebrating different world holiday customs. I loved watching Norah relax and really find the Christmas spirit and of course, sometimes love is right under your nose.
Twist of Fate--Tyler McKenzie and MacKenzie Tyler met in an unusual way and became best friends...until Tyler is faced with a big decision.
I loved how well these two knew each other and how they tried their best to put the other person first. Love based on friendship is the best and I enjoyed feeling the relationship bloom.
It's so hard to pick a favorite--they were all darling and CLEAN!! Each one was unique (of course--how could they not be with three different authors contributing?), fun, and romantic. Just the thing to put you in the Christmas mood.
