review 1: A collection of four romance novellas set at Christmastime: Angel in the Attic, Lone Star, Under his Wing, Behold the Lamb. All are loosely based on Bible stories such as the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, the Story of Ruth, etc. I obtained this as a free ebook download from Amazon and almost deleted it midway through the first story, which I found too full of stereotypes and worse, was set in New Mexico and not Victorian England, as I had expected. But I hung in there and found the last three stories met my expectations and were an enjoyable read for the holidays.
review 2: These 4 stories are beautiful examples of Christian Fiction Romance. Each story was different enough from the last that they were not repetitive at all. In particular, I liked the last s
... moretory. It contained the most surprises in plot. The Gospel message is presented clearly within each story in a manner that doesn't ruin the plot of the story itself. The setting of each takes you directly to the time and place of the story, and the added Christmas setting was enjoyable. There were a few point of view problems, switching from "he" to "her" within a section. But overall this is a wonderful collection of romance stories for anyone into Christian Fiction Romance. Having read CF Romance I did NOT like, I can truthfully say these are delightful. less

Really enjoyed these stories, light-hearted and fun short stories to celebrate the Christmas season.
Did not know that these short stories came with a sermon. Pretty good stories though.
A collection of really "cheezy" Christmas stories. Not my taste.
Four nice Christian, Christmas stories of love and family.
A pleasant Christmas read.
