An Amish Second Christmas

An Amish Second Christmas
Beth Wiseman, Ruth Reid, Katherine Fuller, and Tricia Goyer
Four stories by four different authors are all about Christmas. The stories don't seem to connect in any way except the Christmas theme. Each one is about second chances at Christmas time.

I enjoyed each story. They were sweet, romantic (except for the first one), and brought out the real reason for Christmas. My only complaint with the first story was that it felt like it might have been a middle book in a series. There were several details that I felt I had missed and the book ended like another book was following it. But it was still a nice and heartwarming story about forgiveness and family at Christmas. The second story was nice, but there were so many lies and miscommunication that I became frustrated with the two main characters. For a novella, I'd prefer something a bit less complicated. My favorite was the last two stories by Fuller and Goyer. They were great novellas without feeling rushed or incomplete when they ended. The characters were likeable and relatable, the romance was perfect and the stories ended well. All in all, it is the perfect Christmas book to read by a warm fire or to give as a gift.

I received this book free of charge from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
