On the Way to Christmas: Three Stories by Amy Clipston, Sheila Roberts, & Melissa Ferguson

On the Way to Christmas: Three Stories

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, anything can happen.

In this glittering and heartwarming collection, three of today’s bestselling sweet romance novelists offer up the gift of cheer for the winter holiday season.

A Christmas Do-Over by Sheila Roberts

Darby doesn’t want to go home for the holidays, but a career fail sends her slinking back to the small town she always wanted to escape. No one there is especially glad to see the former mean girl—especially not her sister, Erica, or childhood best friend, Gregory. Darby is working hard to be a better person, but has she eaten enough humble pie to make amends?

Dashing Through the Snow by Melissa Ferguson

When Willow’s boyfriend of seven years dumps her on the eve of a romantic getaway, she decides to take the two-week train trip on The Christmas Express alone. Hurt as she feels, she can’t anticipate how the hilarious rebound ride with conductor Oliver, elf Ian, and aging world adventurer Clarence will heal her heart—and renew her sense of worth.

A Perfectly Splendid Christmas by Amy Clipston

Kacey adores the metropolitan life, but when she gets away to help her sister during a family crisis and run her bakery, she falls in love with former classmate Drew. The problem: he’s a small-town man, and she’s a big-city woman. Is their love big enough to overcome such a major difference?

Curl up with your favorite holiday drink and sink into three worlds where dreams once thought long-gone are still within reach.

“Filled with Christmas spirit, and a little chaos, too, all three stories left my heart filled with joy . . . Five stars overall! ” —Nancy Naigle, bestselling author

Three stand-alone romantic holiday novellas
Book length: 70,000 words

Are you ready for some Christmas inspiration, but short on reading time? This is the book for you! Three different authors relate unique stories that remind us of the many emotions of Christmas, and each tale has great characters, a heartwarming romance, and many of the special traditions that we associate with the season.

Sheila Roberts shares the tale of a mean girl who reluctantly goes back home for Christmas. Darby knows she should change but will she be able to make amends? In  'A Christmas Do-Over' Roberts reminds us that second chances are always possible,

Willow embarks on a cross-country trip on The Christmas Express and encounters romance, adventure, and elves galore! Melissa Ferguson made me feel like I was also there, 'Dashing Through the Snow'!

'A Perfectly Splendid Christmas' is especially appealing, and I enjoyed watching Kacey and Drew's reunion as they spend Christmas in Splendid Lake, North Carolina. Amy Clipston kept me fully engaged in this heartwarming story, and I kept hoping that Kacey and Drew might find more than a renewed friendship! This was my favorite story of the three!!
This is a book to savor, as you're invited to take part in baking cookies, Christmas caroling, family get-togethers, and attending the Christmas Tree Lighting Festival. On the Way to Christmas is a delightful, contemporary romance collection that totally captures the magic of the season!

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review.
