I can’t believe I’m already posting about Christmas books on October 15th, but truth be told, I’ve already read at least 6 Christmas novellas this year to review for favorite authors. And they’ve all been really good so far! And these four are some of the best! I think you’re going to love this Christmas Lights collection. I certainly did!

Summary from Amazon: Amazon best-selling authors Chautona Havig and Vikki Kestell join debuting authors Cathe Swanson and April Hayman to present Christmas Lights, a collection of four Christmas-themed novellas. From historical romance to contemporary cozy mysteries and Christmas wonder, these four “light” reads will warm your heart and ignite your Christmas spirit!

This is a super-fun collection for this Christmas season! My only complaint was that the first book was part of a series I hadn’t read yet and I didn’t realize it until I was a good way into the story. I am a stickler for reading series in order and I hate that feeling that I’ve missed something while I’m reading a book. All the books are well-written with strong characters that captured my heart. Both Chautona Havig’s and April Hayman’s books are laugh-out-loud funny mysteries that I really enjoyed. My favorite book of this collection was Cathe Swanson’s Snow Angels. It is equal parts hilarious and heart-wrenching and deals with some real-life hard stuff while never losing sight of the hope to be found in Jesus. For a debut work, it is stellar!
I received a complimentary copy of this book as part of its launch team. I highly recommend it for a great read this Christmas!
