Holiday Bliss is book 2 in the Bliss series– It comprises three romantic novellas by three different authors–set in different era's, in one home on the water called, Bliss.
I love this time of year because I can feed my need for sweet Christmas movies and books. When Holiday Bliss came up for review it was an answer to my obsession! What made it even more perfect were the lengths of the stories. They were short and sweet!
These stories were very unique because they were all featured about The Bliss House in Harrington, Carolina but during different periods of time. The stories start with the 1920s thru now. Each book dealt with different issues of the time.
Now I want to read more from each of these authors! I highly recommend.
Tending Her Heart by Kathleen Shoop
Julie Peters' plans to modernize Waterside Hospital's labor and delivery protocols are thwarted by old school doctors and brown-nosing colleagues. But a handsome doctor who understands her point-of-view has a fine bedside manner and a way of Tending Her Heart that has forever-after attached to it. Can a Thanksgiving stay in the regal home called Bliss give her the space she needs to right her future and fall in love?
The Christmas Miracle by Marcy Waldenville
Brenan Brown has a terrible secret. One his beautiful wife doesn't know about. One that could destroy his happiness and his family. One he'd thought he buried along with his former identity in a grave in Ireland. But shady characters–terrorists really–from his past come to the stately mansion with blackmail and kidnapping on their minds. And with his family's after at risk, his future in peril, all Brenan can hope for is The Christmas Miracle.
Holiday Wish by JD Wylde
Vaughn Jennings has one rule he refuses to break. Not even for Chelsea Chathford, the curvaceous master carpenter he employs. With just reason. But with every day that goes by, it gets harder and harder to follow his rule. Can he follow his heart? Or forever wish he had? Because Christmas comes but once a year. And with it, the only chance to have his Holiday Wish come true.
