Small Town Christmas by Jill Shalvis, Hope Ramsay and Katie Lane

Small town Christmas consists of three short stories by Jill Shalvis, author of the amazing Lucky Harbor series, Hope Ramsay and Katie Lane. I love reading anthologies because very often it gets me to try out new books and authors that I hadn’t considered before.

Kissing Santa Claus by Jill Shalvis:
In Kissing Santa Claus, Jill Shalvis takes us back to Lucky Harbor and gives us the story of NASCAR driver Logan Parrish, Tara’s ex-husband from The Sweetest Thing. I’m a huge fan of Jill Shalvis, especially the Lucky Harbor series, and I really loved this short trip back to Lucky Harbor before the release of the third book of the series, Head over Heels. In The Sweetest Thing, Logan apparently had an affair with a woman from town, Sandy Jansen. At the time, they both only wanted a fling, no strings attached, but it seems that Logan and Sandy never forgot about each other. Well, Logan comes back for Sandy and he has the perfect Christmas gift for her. Maybe you alreday noticed that I’m a huge fan of the Lucky Harbor series. All three books, Head Over Heels being the latest, are entertaining, sexy and so much fun to read. Jill Shalvis recently announced that she is writing three more books set in Lucky Harbor.
I’ll be Home for Christmas by Hope Ramsay:
This story didn’t appeal to me very much and is probably the reason this book only gets four instead of five stars from me. Army Sergeant Matt Jasper just finished his last tour and comes to Last Chance to give a family member of his dead army buddy her Christmas gift. Coming from a troubled home, he never experienced a real Christmas and is very glad to stay a while when the town embraces this lost man.

O’ Little Town of Bramble by Katie Lane:
Samantha Henderson has come back to Bramble, Texas and, although she doesn’t know it yet, also to her sweetheart Ethan Miller. Ethan and Sam had been best friends until the day Sam left and Ethan stayed in Bramble. When they finally meet again they both try to resist each other but finally succumb to what they both know feels right. I loved this very sweet story. This is just a feel-good read that gave me the chance to discover a new author and I will definitely try out Katie Lane’s Deep in The Heart of Texas series.

I recommend this book with all my heart. I really enjoyed this very quick but heart-warming read. I especially loved the short visit to Lucky Harbor and the chance to discover a new author, which always makes it worth it!

I suppose you could read them out of order but it's just a better reading experience if you know the other book beforehand. You should push Jill Shalvis' Lucky Harbor series up on your TBR list. The books are amazing and soo funny!

Great review, Steffi! It's on my TBR list & the one I really want to read, but since I haven't read Jill Shalvis' or Katie Lane's first 2 books, I prefer to wait & read them in order. Or maybe it's OK if I read them out of order?!
