Book Blurb

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, anything can happen.

In this glittering and heartwarming collection, three of today’s bestselling sweet romance novelists offer up the gift of cheer for the winter holiday season.

A Christmas Do-Over by Sheila Roberts

Darby doesn’t want to go home for the holidays, but a career fail sends her slinking back to the small town she always wanted to escape. No one there is especially glad to see the former mean girl—especially not her sister, Erica, or childhood best friend, Gregory. Darby is working hard to be a better person, but has she eaten enough humble pie to make amends?

Dashing Through the Snow by Melissa Ferguson

When Willow’s boyfriend of seven years dumps her on the eve of a romantic getaway, she decides to take the two-week train trip on The Christmas Express alone. Hurt as she feels, she can’t anticipate how the hilarious rebound ride with conductor Oliver, elf Ian, and aging world adventurer Clarence will heal her heart—and renew her sense of worth.

A Perfectly Splendid Christmas by Amy Clipston

Kacey adores the metropolitan life, but when she gets away to help her sister during a family crisis and run her bakery, she falls in love with former classmate Drew. The problem: he’s a small-town man, and she’s a big-city woman. Is their love big enough to overcome such a major difference?

Curl up with your favorite holiday drink and sink into three worlds where dreams once thought long-gone are still within reach.

“Filled with Christmas spirit, and a little chaos, too, all three stories left my heart filled with joy . . . Five stars overall! ” —Nancy Naigle, bestselling author

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


On the Way to Christmas is a collection of three Christmas romances by Sheila Roberts, Melissa Ferguson, Amy Clipston.

I’m always ready to try a new author and novella collections are great opportunities for such a thing. In this case, all three authors were new-to-me and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read their stories.

A Christmas Do-Over by Sheila Roberts had A Christmas Carol undertones. A grumpy heroine who comes face-to-face with her past, and Christmas. I especially liked the hero in this one, but for fear of spoilers, I won’t say more.

Dashing Through the Snow by Melissa Ferguson was a fun story that had a fabulous ending. I love the premise as well: finding romance on a Christmas Train. The characters were all so great!

A Perfectly Splendid Christmas by Amy Clipston also had a wonderful hero. I loved the way he attempted to solve the problem that was keeping him and his girl apart. This is the only story where we got to see his point-of-view and I especially liked that.

Overall, these stories were enjoyable reads. The characters in all of them were wonderful, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read this collection.
