I am a huge fan of Christmas movies and books around the holidays. My DVR is full of Hallmark and Lifetime movies right now and this was the perfect addition!
All I Want by Jolene Perry, Kaylee Baldwin, Rachael Anderson
Release Date: November 2012
Genre: Christmas Romance
I really enjoyed these stories! They were fun and easy to get into but also emotional at times. They all have happy endings and are perfect holiday reads!
Pretty Near Perfect
by Jolene Perry
This was the most sad story of the bunch for me. Norah is visiting her deceased fiancé's parents' home for Christmas. She was almost getting over her grief and ready to move on until she has to sleep in his room again. But while there, she meets Colin. She doesn't want to make the family uncomfortable by them having to watch her move on but Colin is a great guy and she is drawn to him.
"Yeah, I always thought stuff like this was for Hallmark movies or something."
"A big Hallmark movie watcher, are you?" I tease.
Six Days of Christmas
by Kaylee Baldwin
I enjoyed this one so much because when Natalie visits her friend Janessa's family for the holidays they celebrate with a tradition of celebrating each day of the week by doing traditions of different countries around the world. This actually sounded like fun! LOL But Natalie is a workaholic and is desperately trying to come up with a great ad campaign to land her dream job. She left her other half who is also a workaholic behind and is actually really letting loose and enjoying herself. A big part of that is because Janessa's little brother is home for the holidays and all grown up.
"My nakedness doesn't bother anyone. Janessa? Natty? I know Natty loves it. Boys at the U don't have bodies like this."
Twist of Fate
by Rachael Anderson
Tyler McKenzie's apartment is directly below Mackenzie Tyler's. For the last year he has been accidentally getting her mail as well as falling in love with her. But Kenzie is engaged to guy away in Madagascar. When Ty gets a postcard from him breaking up with Kenzie, Ty makes it his mission to hide it so that Kenzie's holiday isn't ruined, and also to make Kenzie fall in love with him so that it doesn't break her heart.
"How, exactly, is making me help you turn your classroom into Whoville supposed to make me feel better? Right now I'm feeling more conned that comforted."
"Cindy Lou Who," he shot back.
Jolene Perry is an enigmatic figure. She is most often seen behind her laptop, staring at the words flying onto the screen with reckless abandon.
She survived growing up in rural Alaska, driving like a lunatic, and her husband’s careers in the military, as a perpetual student, and an Alaska State Prosecutor. She also survived as a middle school math teacher using her degree of Political Science and French.
One day Jolene was playing her guitar (probably some-thing juvenile for her kids) when she wondered what it would be like to write a song for a rockstar, and her first book was born. (that book is shelved)
She now lives a very glamorous life as a stay at home mom, elbow deep in dirty dishes and peanut butter sandwiches. She doesn’t even attempt to keep up with the laundry because non-writing time is precious, and her family is sorta awesome.

She's the mother of four, can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
