Review: The 12 Brides of Christmas collection

Review: The 12 Brides of Christmas collection

Amanda Cabot, Amy Lillard, Christian, Christmas, Davalynn Spencer, Diana Lesire Brandmeyer, historical, Margaret Brownley, Mary Connealy, Maureen Lang, Michelle Ule, Miralee Ferrell, Pam Hillman, romance, Susan Page Davis, Vickie McDonough 7

Usually when you have this many different authors in one place, there are bound to be a couple of stories that I don’t like. That was not the case in The 12 Brides of Christmas. I have my favorite novellas of the group, certainly, but each story was very well-written with solidly developed & engaging characters and emotionally-satisfying plots. My only wish is that each novella had been its own full-length novel so that I could have more of the delightful characters.
