    Jane Hunt Writer First StepsJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews FacebookJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews Google This is an easy to read festive collection of short stories and novellas with a ghostly or paranormal twist There is something to appeal to everyone in this book whether you are fan of the festive season or not Perfect for the commute to work or a snatched hour by the fire these stories will let you escape to another era time zone or even worldUpon a Ghostly Yule Amanda De WeesA Victorian Christmas romance this story has all the right ingredients for historical romance lovers A courageous heroine snubbed by society through no fault of her own a gallant hero and a jealous so called friend The paranormal twist is in the form of ghost whose own unhappiness affects Felicity the heroine in an alarming waySaving Laurel Raine EnglishThis contemporary Christmas story has Laurel returning to house where she grew up with the intention of selling the estate and moving on Already apprehensive about returning to her home she has to face echoes of the past before she can move on with her life Enhanced with vivid imagery and tender romance this story is perfect for all the Christmas romantics like meIn the Holiday Spirit Angeline FortinThis story perfectly captures the hopeful spirit of the Christmas season Fearful of being hurt again Alice avoids commitment and resists all attempts by her matchmaking Grandma to start living life to the full again She falls at the feet of a man to die for but is it just her clumsiness or something ? Great characters and visual imagery make this one of my favourites in this anthologyKaiden Snow Bride Anthena GraysonAn unusual romantic fantasy tale for the festive season set in Japan in the 1969 1970Sapphire Ridge Aileen HarkwoodLaying old ghosts to rest proves far adventurous than Nikki would have imagined Vivid disaster scenes and enlightening flashbacks in this fast paced story hold your interest The paranormal element in this story is subtle and adds an exciting twist to an already emotional storyMistletoe and Magic Lynda HavilandLike all ‘Hidden Coast romances’ this story interweaves supernatural elements into a contemporary world setting in a believable way A surprise guest at Hannah’s empty inn changes her plans in a charming and unexpected way Full of romance and ghostly happenings this is a delightful readHer Ghost of Christmas Past Afton MossThis is a lovely romantic tale of ghosts lost love and soul mates Is love eternal who knows but this story certainly makes you think about the possibility? Bandits Hollow Diane J Reed A western romantic tale where the past haunts the present and echoes of magic and the supernatural enliven an everyday settingEnrich your festive season with magic and ghosts I recommend reading this anthology in the shadow of the Christmas tree lights I received a copy of this book from the authors in return for an honest reviewAmanda DeWees

    This was one of the best anthologies I have read Each of the stories had a happy ending and I love happy endings Each story is the perfect length to read right before bed as they can be finished in an hour or an hour and a half and leave you with warm fuzzies to fall asleep with Since I am partial to paranormal romances some of my favorites were by Aileen Harkwood Athena Grayson and Diane J Reed as these stories had magical gifts as well as ghosts Harkwood's story has non stop heart pounding action from the first page to the last as an avalanche sweeps through Lake Tahoe resort an area I am uite familiar with Grayson's story is set in Japan and I am intimately familiar with Japanese customs and language so it was also a joy to read even though it involved a mythical race of ice creatures And Reed's story was both a time travel western romance with fun characters and lots of action and romance Although I am not normal a reader of contemporary romance I did enjoy Raine English's and Afton Moss's Christmas Eve ghost stories because they had just enough of spookiness to to heat up even my old cold heart Overall all the stories were great and as I said earlier just perfect for reading right before bed

    I'm not a fan of Christmas stories and I hate Christmas on general principle but I am a sucker for a well written romance novella length fiction and ghost stories so when I was offered this anthology for free in exchange for an honest review I figured what the hell I'll give it a shotLike pretty much all anthologies and story collections the uality of the stories varies and since I hate Christmas it's probably not a coincidence that the two stories I liked the best had the least to do with the holiday My personal favorite in the entire collection was Athena Grayson's Kaidan Snow Bride the story of an American GI on leave in Japan during the Vietnam war who falls in love with a Japanese spirit is by far the most creative interesting and well written of the eight novellas I really loved how the protagonists didn't just fill typical romantic archetypes but were interesting in their own right independent of the really lovely romance that blooms between the two of them I'd pay the purchase price and even for just this novella aloneThe other story I rather enjoyed Aileen Harkwood's Sapphire Ridge which while being a bit predictable plot wise I suspected the twist the minute the hero showed up was still really well written and entertaining and I was invested enough to root for the two characters to find their happy ending Other stories that were well written but not really my cup of tea were Bandit's Hollow Upon a Ghostly Yule and Mistletoe MagicHowever some of the other stories I was not a very big fan of Saving Laurel starts out strong even though the story of a dead loved one trying to help the person they left behind find new love is a pretty generic trope but then just as the story starts to pick up steam and you start caring about the protagonists it just abruptly ends in a far too uick and too neat conclusion In the Holiday Spirit and Her Ghost of Christmas Past have the same weaknesses and I just couldn't get into them But again a lot of this has to do with personal preferences and taste such a subjective thing means that there will be people love the stories that didn't do much for me and hated the ones that I loved

    A solid 4 stars This is a fun anthology full of holiday shivers and warm embraces And Christmas theme notwithstanding I definitely enjoyed its help getting into the Halloween spirit tooThere were a couple of stories that weren't my cup of tea but the ones that I enjoyed were REALLY REALLY good I've read everything that Amanda Dewees has published so far I think which is what alerted me to the anthology in the first place but I will definitely be looking up of Lynda Haviland's Hidden Coast series—my favorite was a toss up between Upon a Ghostly Yule and Mistletoe and Magic—and seeing what else Angeline Fortin and Athena Grayson have to offer I look forward to rereading these in a couple months since chills up my spine might be the only chills I get this holiday seasonI received a copy of this anthology in exchange for an honest review

    I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest reviewI read only two stories one historical and one contemporary Upon a Ghostly Yule by Amanda DeWees and Mistletoe Magic by Lynda Haviland In general I am a sucker for a good Christmas romance and while gothicsupernatural is not my main sub genre I do enjoy it sometimes ONCE UPON A GHOSTLY YULE 35 starsDeWees' style is fun a mixture of old school gothic revival taking me back to my Victoria Holt days and traditional historical Felicity the heroine was a bit too much if an ingenue for my taste but I simply prefer older sassier heroines So at first I was all Team Ameliauntil I SO wasn't I hate pranks Sir James is very sexy and I would definitely enjoy getting stranded in a snowy mansion with him especially one that includes secret doors and hidden passages Very enjoyable readMISTLETOE MAGIC 25 starsHannah was an appealing heroine and I liked the setting uite a bit She had nice chemistry with the hero Jackson and it was a treat to read about a couple who are both adults over 35 ; The ghost in this tale was definitely of the malicious kind so be warned I thought it was a sweet tale but just like a delicious piece of Christmas candy it pleases in the moment but may not stick with you all that long However I don't usually gravitate toward contemporary romance so my reaction is probably a factor of that than it is of any deficiency on the author's part And I LOVED Nellie Pearle She's the one I wanted to hang out with

    Full disclosure I received a free copy of this work in return for an honest reviewbIf you love supernatural romances this is a great choice to curl up with this holiday season These are eight short storynovella length works all with a supernatural theme and all set around winterChristmastime And don't worry romance fansthey all end happilyIn my opinion the standouts in this collection are Upon a Ghostly Yule by Amanda DeWees a Victorian story set in an stately home with secrets of its own; In the Holiday Spirit by Angeline Fortin in which a lonely lady meets a most unusual little matchmaker; and Lynda Haviland's Mistletoe Magic a story of an independent innkeeper a tormented actor and the inn's resident ghost

    This is my review of In the Holiday Spirit by Angeline FortinA bit of the paranormal and a lot of the sweet makes In the Holiday Spirit an enjoyable readI loved the “meet cute” between Alice and George A dog named Nanny has a penchant for sniffing out friendly spirits and helps Alice meet the future love of her life Alice who went through a heartbreaking split from her slimeball ex can’t seem to get out of her rut and George remains kind of an enigma We only get Alice’s POV so the mystery unravels as she starts to understand Overall I really did not think their insta romance was all that believable but seeing as this was a little light hearted and fun it didn’t detract from the reading experience
