A themed tour through Prism Book Tours.

Christmas, ActuallyChristmas, Actually by Anna Adams, Anna J. Stewart, Melinda Curtis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Christmas Romance

Book Description:  Discover the magic of Christmas Town, Maine!

Three lonely strangers come to Christmas Town, Maine, and find love with three Banning siblings in the town that celebrates the holidays by decorating its square with lights and ribbons and a holiday pageant on Christmas Eve. Tradition has it that a kiss beneath the mistletoe that night means marriage for the couple in the new year.

The Christmas Gift by Anna Adams:
Jack Banning promised to support the mother of his unborn child? But she doesn't need money, she only needs him.

The Christmas Wish by Anna J. Stewart:
Callie Banning's student has declared war on Christmas, so it's up to her to help the little girl?and her widowed father?believe again.

The Christmas Date by Melinda Curtis:
Gina Vernay is about to meet her online mystery date?and she's in for the surprise of a lifetime!

My thoughts: Three siblings live in a town in Maine named Christmas Town. The three are actively involved with the Christmas traditions of the town, but each has their reasons for not looking forward to the season.

I enjoyed reading the three stories, written by three authors, that take place at the same time. The town sounds like a wonderful place to be to celebrate Christmas. I'm glad that I got to spend time with the stories just before entering the Christmas season.

Each of the author's did a great job in telling their story. I liked the descriptions and the characters.

This book is a fun way to get into the holiday season and find a little clean Christmas romance.

About the Authors

Photo 34
Anna Adams wrote her first romance in wet sand. The Atlantic Ocean washed it away, but Anna kept going. Her stories are of love, like the proverbial stone in a lake, making ripples that spread and contract and involve. From Iceland to Hawaii, and points in between, Anna and her own hero share with children and family and friends who?ve become family. All this living and loving gives Anna plenty of fodder for stories of love set in real life. Come along and live them with her!

Anna J. Stewart can't remember a time she didn't have a book in her hand or a story in her head and credits her mother never saying no to a book for turning her into a writer. Anna lives in Northern California with an overly attentive cat named Snickers and is happiest when setting her heroes and heroines on their road to happily ever after amidst family, fun and laughter.

Melinda Curtis
Melinda Curtis grew up on an isolated sheep ranch, where mountain lions had been seen and yet she roamed unaccompanied. Being a rather optimistic, clueless of danger, sort she took to playing "what if" games that led her to become an author. She spends days trying to figure out new ways to say "He made her heart pound." That might sound boring, but the challenge keeps her mentally ahead of her 3 kids and college sweetheart husband.
