I really just sometimes like to sit back and enjoy a shorter story. In The Westward Christmas Brides Collection we have a wonderful collection of stories by 9 different authors. I wanted to read this book most of all as one of my favorite authors, MaryLu Tyndall, had a short story in this collection. However, every story was delightful and I found more authors to put on my wish list. Each story is only about 40-50 pages long, but they are all so well told that it did not seem like I was reading a short story. The book itself is lovely and nicely laid out. With beveled pages and a beautiful winter scene on the inside of both flaps, it would make a very thoughtful Christmas gift to a reader in your life. I really enjoyed all these prairie romances and look forward to reading more in these collections. I received the book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
