Second Chances by Heide Katros
Sylvia Hewlitt is not looking forward to spending the Christmas Holiday alone. She has spent the past year being a widow now she feels it is time to begin a new life and books a skiing vacation in North Carolina.
Stephan Breslow is not in the mood to fight over where and which family members to spend the holiday with, he opts for a skiing vacation in North Carolina.
With a brief meeting between Sylvia and Steven one year ago, he had brought her the bad news of her husband’s death, neither expected to run into each other on vacation, but fate had different ideas for them.
I found this was a very odd storyline, but liked the thought behind Stephan and Sylvia’s romance. It helps you wish at a chance for love for everyone.
Christmas Magic by Kate Hofman
Luca Alessandro Assante, Marchese di Montevarchi has decided to spend Christmas in the Italian Alps. He is still feeling wounded from his broken engagement to Crista.
Crista Ballantyne is on her way to spend the holidays with her Aunt and runs into a bad storm and her car is giving her trouble. But there seems to be no rooms available, that is until Luca offers her a place to stay.
Luca takes this chance encounter to hopefully convince Crista that they belong together that he is sorry, but it seems someone has also put his life in danger, which complicates things a bit more.
What a sweet story of love given a second chance and a bit of mystery thrown in. You cannot help but root for this couple to overcome their obstacles.
Lakota Christmas by Diane Davis White
Julianne Porter and her mother are spending a quiet Christmas at home, the first without her father. When a strange man comes knocking, looking for her mother who has a gift for healing, Julianne is skeptical at first, but finds herself intrigued by the Lakota man.
Ethan Knows the Way has come looking for the healing white woman, because his nephew is suffering from a strange fever and their medicine man has died.
Julianne and her mother accompany Ethan back to his home to treat the young boy. What they find are friendly faces who welcome them into their home and that two cultures can blend together when the sparks begin to sizzle between Ethan and Julia.
This was my favorite story so sweet and heartwarming, and two people from different cultures prove that love can conquer all boundaries and prejudice.
Each story is a good read on its own, but bringing the three stories from three talented authors offers you a wonderful assortment of romance and Christmas cheer. Each offers likeable characters with an engaging story behind them. A Great read for anytime of the year not just the Holidays.
