This Christmas-themed anthology contains 5 short stories by one of my favorite historical romance authors, Barbara Metzger. If you like sweet historical romance with more than a dash of humor and set at Christmas then this is the collection for you.

Greetings of the Season ~ Have you ever sent the wrong text or email to someone? Well, in this one the cards Bevin writes to go with his presents get mixed up by his secretary (on purpose) and the result is quite funny.

The Proof is in the Pudding ~ Who knew Christmas pudding would cause such a stir? I thought it would be the other way around. Hehe And after the story is a recipe for making Christmas Pudding. Yay!

Three Good Deeds ~ Three rambunctious boys are set on a certain path by the vicar. Yeah, this is either going to be a disaster or hilarious. Maybe both.

Christmas Wish List ~ A fairly large cast and each POV starts off a bit different than anything I’ve ever seen. It reminded me a lot of that M.A.S.H. episode where Hawkeye was trying to get new boots. I quite enjoyed this one.

Little Miracles ~ Told from Reverend Evan Merriweather’s POV and from that of the church mice, this tale has a touch of fantasy to it.


  1. Oh this should be on my shelf! I love regency era and these sound good. I'm really curious about the note swap! And the one that reminded you of M.A.S.H. (loved that show!). Thanks for sharing 😊

    1. I love all her stories! I think when you read Christmas Wish List you'll know what I'm talking about. lol

  2. I've never read her, I don't think anyway, but the one that reminds you of M.A.S.H. is intriguing. I loved that show.

    1. She writes sweet, funny, historical romance that never fails to leave me smiling. And that M.A.S.H. episode is probably one of my favorites. lol
