Book Review - The Christmas Cookie Collection by Lori Wilde

About The Book:

The New York Times Bestselling Author of The First Love Cookie Club returns to Twilight, Texas, with one brand-new story and three stories never before in print!

There's a legend in Twilight, Texas. It says that if on Christmas you sleep with kismet cookies under your pillow and dream of your one true love, he will be your destiny.
Carrie, Raylene, Christine, and Flynn are all members of the Christmas Cookie Club. Each has a story to tell, and each discovers the miracles of the season and the power of love.

Carrie: Reconnects with her high school sweetheart . . .the only man she's ever loved.
Raylene: Discovers that the daughter she gave away at birth is living right in Twilight . . .
Christine: Has given up on love . . . until the man of her dreams walks through her shop door.
Grace: It's Christmas Eve and Flynn and Jesse Calloway are thrilled to be expecting a new baby. Then Flynn's car hits a patch of ice, and Jesse must move earth . . . and heaven . . .to save her and their unborn child.

My Thoughts:

This collection of Christmas stories feature folks from Lori Wilde's popular Twilight, Texas series and are a great accompaniment to that series.  It's fun to revisit the quaint little Texas community and all the characters who populate the town and make is a fun place to live.

My only problem with the book is the lack of recipes included. Wilde mentions delicious sounding treats throughout the book and I would have loved to have seen the recipes for them.

I gladly recommend this book for fans of contemporary, small town romance. These are fun and fast reading for the holidays!
