    Dang...a second Christmas book in a row that I consider a dud. First it was "Snowbound in the Earl's Castle" by Fiona Harper, and now this one, "Coming Home For Christmas" a collection of 3 Fern Michaels novellas. I had such high hopes for it. The cover is soooo cozy and Christmasy and the descriptions made me hope it would be like Hallmark holiday movies in book form. Alas, although these stories were corny, it wasn't in the good way.The first s...

    Don't even know where to start. The writing was good and each of the three novellas was very promising in the beginning. But the characters' actions were completely unbelievable. There was just no logic in their behavior and the choices they've made. Not to mention that they all had a strange tendency to fall in love with each other within 12 h or so of the first meeting. It was just all very odd and difficult to believe in.

    First 2 stories were cute, although a little too sweet and even slightly cheesy. But that 3rd story really tanked. I can't believe how awful the "hero" was, and how easily we were supposed to accept his change of heart. Yeah, did not work for me at all! It left a really bad taste in my mouth and I'm honestly surprised at that whole story.

    I was so excited when i won this book on goodreads, Because i love Fern Michaels books. But this one just was not what I expected at all. I did not realize at first it was actually 3 short stories in one book. The first 2 short stories was the best and i would give them both 5 ⭐'s. The 3 rd i would only give 1⭐.

    I think this is the second or third book I read from this author and I remain unimpressed. I'm a huge fan of crummy romance novels if they're set during Christmas, so I was hoping this would be at least average.Although the author's writing style isn't bad (aside from using dopey sentences such as "and the rest, as they say, is history"), I greatly dislike her vision on romance. She always starts off with clever ideas for background stories but t...

    DNF on page 31. For me, it’s incredibly hard to dnf a book. I almost never do it on purpose, even if I’m not really feeling it. My rule is usually if I still don’t like it by half way through, I can dnf it, but I never do because I still want to know how it ends and I figure if I get to half then I can finish it. With this one, I hated it from the first page. I didn’t even want to read it, but I was trying to firce myself to so I could se...

    This book consists of three short stories. I have not read anything previously by this author so I don't know if this is typically their writing. I enjoy some quick semi cheesy holiday reads, but these were definitely on the super cheesy side. The stories were quite over the top and the characters seemed to change feelings/tempers too quickly and I found myself rolling my eyes throughout them. Had these have been lengthier stories I would not hav...

    Let me get straight to the point: 3 novellas that are juvenile and poorly written.The plot would be good except for the writing.Characters are... How can I say it? Dumb. There's a good thing though: the 3 stories are set in Telluride or close by. This has made me think about Gus Kenworthy 😁✌Other than that, just a worthless book.

    Loves the three stories in this book.The first story called Silver Bells was about Amy Lee and Hank.The second story called Snow Angels was about Max and Grace.And the third story was about Stephanie and Eddie.All three stories were connected through a small place called Apple Valley and surrounding area.

    If your looking for a quick christmas read, this is it. Of the three short stories, the first was cute, christmassy, funny...a nice read. The second story was a bit more predictable, but good storyline, quick read. I was a bit disappointed with the third story. It had potential but i felt the story felt choppy and unbelievable.

    This was my first fern Michaels book. The stories were good, but I didn't like having three different stories. The characters fell in love too quickly. I wish the whole book would have been about stephanie instead.

    Silver Bells - 4 stars, Snow Angels - 3.5 stars, Holiday Magic - 2.5 stars. Also I totally missed the fact that this book was actually 3 novellas until I finished the first one and turned the first page to discover the story was over!

    1.5No. Just no. The stories are too short to be believable love stories. Does everyone meet and fall in love at first sight? The first was fine which brought on the 2 star rating. The last one was terrible, I hated the ending and didn’t even like the love interest.

    My mom gave me this book. Three short stories that were so rushed and the characters so unrealistically developed that I almost didn't finish.

    After reading some of the reviews below I had decided not to even read this book as I was very disappointed with Christmas At Timberwoods. At Christmas I like to read cheesey warmhearted stories of Christmas to put me in the spirit and keep me there with tales of snow, decorating, baking, shopping and of course loving, but all centered around the Christmas spirit like Debbie Macomber does. Late one night I couldn't sleep and I didn't have anythin...

    This is actually 3 novellas. I enjoyed the first one and on its own would have given it a 3.5 - 4 stars. However, the second one felt rushed and the denouement was completely unbelievable because of the rush. It seemed like 3/4 of the story was missing. The 3rd one I did not like at all. The male lead was a complete jerk and the entire time I wanted to get in the woman's face and say "Wake up! This guy is a jerk and you are way too good for him."...
