Get in the holiday spirit with a collection of heartfelt, feel good, sweet romances set in small, snowy Christmas Town!

"What a fun way to usher in the holidays! Three sweet stories of siblings finding love in Christmas Town!" Valri, Amazon Reviewer

"This is a really great anthology - heartwarming, romantic, humorous, sweet. What's more, because the stories are based on three siblings and all set in Christmas Town, it is like really a trilogy at one go. "Winnie, Goodreads Reviewer

Grab your mug of hot chocolate, your favorite fuzzy blanket, and get ready for a dose of holiday spirit! Here are three connected, sweet holiday romances set in charming Christmas Town where local legend has it that a kiss beneath the gazebo on the town square during the holiday season means a wedding in the new year.

Welcome to Christmas Town, Maine!

The Banning siblings are in need of a little magic this holiday season, the kind that brings love and happy-ever-afters. There's Jack, a trauma surgeon who would prefer working to dealing with memories of his time in service. Then there's Callie, a grade school teacher who's trying to fill the void left by her mother and volunteering too much around town. And finally, there's Nick, one of the town's handymen. He's got an unrequited crush on the owner of The Tea Pot and is going to great lengths to get a date with her this Christmas.

If you enjoy Hallmark, UPTV or Great American Family TV holiday movies, you'll love this collection of clean, heartwarming romances, each with a happy-ever-after and no cliffhangers. There's something for everyone, including secret identity, medical romance, bakery romance, instant attraction, and more!

This set kicks off the Heartwarming Christmas Town series which has over 60 connected sweet romances, all written by Harlequin Heartwarming authors (past & present). Be sure to check out our companion series - The Christmas Carousel (The 12 Days of Heartwarming Christmas) - featuring one novella and 12 full-length holiday romances. These books, also set in Christmas Town, feature the restoration of a carousel and preparation for a Christmas wedding.

This book was previously published by Harlequin in 2014.
