I have thoroughly enjoyed this collection of stories, The first one by Deb Marlowe, is a sweet story of blossoming romance and sets the scene for those to come. Some of the stories are more spicy than others, but all give a lovely warm feeling. I especially enjoyed The lady's guide to Mistletoe and Mayhem, which includes, mystery, murder, love and Christmas parties all in one very well written story. I come across several authors I had not read before but will now be looking out for their other books. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
