Ahh Christmas...and Amish fiction...and novellas... What better way is there to get yourself in the mood for the upcoming holidays? None that I can think of. With two of my favorite authors in this book, I couldn't say no to reading and reviewing it. I'm happy to report that I have zero regrets. What did surprise me was that my favorite story was by an author that I can't recall reading before. I'm not going to give it away because there's no fun in that. I want all of you to read it and let me know which was your favorite! Each author did a wonderful job in setting the scene, helping you get to know their characters and sharing tales that will stick in your mind as you prepare for your own Christmas.
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, comments and opinions are my own.
