My thoughts about Christmas Kisses ~~

I love when the Christmas books start coming out. And this one is a great way to start the season. The stories in Christmas Kisses all take place in Echo Ridge, a nice little community in New York. Each one of the five stories focuses on different main characters but they are all intertwined so we learn a lot about the people and the community.

I loved the way the stories all take place around the same time and pretty much the same place. The main connection for all the characters is the local department store. Reading the different stories by these five great authors gives the reader different perspectives of that time and place and we learn so much about that town and these wonderful people. This is book #1 so I am excited that there will be a chance to revisit Echo Ridge sometime in the future.

Cami Checketts is a must-read author for me and I was excited to see that she had one of the stories in this anthology. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them and I now have more authors to watch.


Read below for the synopsis of each story. Grab Christmas Kisses for only $.99. Then pour yourself some hot cocoa, grab a blanket, and enjoy a taste of Christmas!

The Candy Counter Heiress
by Lucy McConnell
Amazon bestselling & award-winning author

Someday Reese Gates will own The Candy Counter at Kenworth's; but someday can't come fast enough when the manager threatens to bring in a national candy provider. Reese secretly takes matters into her own hands hoping to save her parents from additional worry and prove herself capable of running the company. Her deception deepens as she ropes computer guru Andy Edwards into helping her expand the business. Reese wanted to shake things up, but she wasn't planning on her heart getting caught in the mix by Andy's stolen kisses. If she can hold it together until after Christmas, then she can reveal her successful online company and her feelings for Andy. Unfortunately for Reese, even the best laid plans can melt like chocolate.

Christmas Makeover
by Cami Checketts
Amazon bestselling author

Chelsea Jamison has been infatuated with Drew Stirling longer than she's loved playing basketball, high-top sneakers, and the Knicks. Unfortunately, all Drew sees is the kid who kicked his trash in the high school free throw contest and not the girl whose heart breaks into a fast dribble when he's near.

Drew makes an unexpected visit home to Echo Ridge and their friendship picks up where they left off as they scheme to make a teenaged boy's Christmas dreams come true. When Chelsea realizes she's fallen for her best friend, she wonders if there is any hope of a relationship with Drew or if she's stuck in buddy-status for life.

Soda Fountain Christmas
by Connie E. Sokol
Amazon bestselling author

Keira Kenworth has one focus this holiday season: save her father's old-time department store from bankruptcy. She is not focused on Tayton Wells, the tall, dark, and genius marketing guru from downtown New York, hired to make it happen. He is as doubtful that her nostalgic connect-the-town ideas will succeed as she is about his numbers-first plan. However, it's not just their different approaches that cause sparks to fly. Working together on a fast deadline to save the store before Christmas, the unspoken connection between them grows. But will the tough decisions they face drive them back to their separate worlds, or will they lead to the beginning of love?

Hope for Christmas
by Rachelle J. Christensen
Amazon bestselling & award-winning author

Anika Fletcher hates Christmas--its promises of good tidings and hope for the future are as tinseled as the ornaments on Kenworth's Hope Tree. Despite her feelings, Anika wants to maintain her daughter's faith in the magic of the season and gladly accepts a second job working with the handsome Carlos Rodriguez to restore Kenworth's old fashioned soda fountain. Carlos is no stranger to hard times and slowly shares his life of light and joy with Anika as they work together. Just as her fragile soul begins to feel hope again, an ill-timed act of charity changes everything. Anika isn't sure who she can trust or if hope is worth nurturing--especially at Christmas when it's easy to enjoy a kiss and believe love can last longer than the season.
