Peekaboo Baby Town yThan a little rushed butou will have to read it to understand why I think that Overall I thought this was a cute collection of Christmas stories and I did appreciate the military twist who doesn t love a guy in a uniform That said the stories were a little two uick to have the development they a uniform That said the stories were a little two uick to have the development they in my opinion so it felt an awful lot like insta love rather than taking the time to develop something organically But if ou want something uick and sweet with a Christmas feel this would definitely "Be Your Cup Of "your cup of For this review and visit my blogComing Home for Christmas is a festive anthology made up of three stories Christmas Angel by Lindsey McKenna Unexpected Gift by Delores Fossen and Navy Joy by Geri KrotowNormally I uite enjoy anthologies epically Christmas ones but I really struggled with Coming Home for Christmas and only enjoyed one out of the three stories I had really been looking forward to this because I love Christmas stories and enjoy military romances also in the fact that each of the authors served in the military so I really thought this would be the one for me but I ended up disappointedThe anthology started with Lindsey McKenna s Christmas Angel It s not a secret that I ve struggled with this authors work in the past I thought I would give it another shot thinking that maybe I would prefer her style in a novella but if anything it was even worse McKenna isn t it bad writer it s her style of writing that irritates me there is just too much detailed explanations of feelings the characters cannot even have sex without stopping to have a conversations about how they are feeling These descriptions are also incredibly cheesy Here is an example Anna would swear she d gained five pounds It was Kyle s love for her she realized that was feeding her soul infusing her heart and body Riiiiiiiight ok thenI have read uite a lot of McKenna s books now but I think it s time I admit defeat and give upThe second book in the anthology is Unexpected Gift by Delores Fossen Frankly this story saved this book for me I really really liked this and wish it had been featured in a different collection It ticked all the boxes for me It was funny romantic and sweet The storyline was great and Fossen s timing when it came to humour was spot on Gabe and Kelly were great characters who I felt I knew despite the story only being short I could have happily read a few hundred pages of thisBring up the rear is Geri Krotow s Navy Joy which much like McKenna s Christmas Angel just didn t do it for me I preferred the writing but didn t like the characters I found both Ian and Wendi really annoying and presumptuous In the end I skimmed this oneThe publisher provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Shelly s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4 STARSReview copy provided for an honest reviewThree great homecomings that will warm our heart make Hatch you smile laugh and makeou want to

Due to my husband serving in the Navy I m usually a huge fan of military romances When I saw that this book was made up of three Military romances that take place during Christmas well sign me up I felt like I had hit the jackpot and I couldn t wait to get my hands on itNow normally I will find one novella that I just love and one that is just ok and one that is just not my favorite in a book like this Unfortunately all three novellas were just ok In fact I actually struggled wanting to read them after I got started I really wish it wasn t the case but not one of these novellas really stood out for me in the way of a plot or chemistry with the charactersI am giving this book three stars because while it didn t meet the high hopes that I had for it it still was a decent enough way to spend a uiet afternoon Military Christmas storiesI loved each one of these stories All slightly different but heartwarming I appreciated the military heroes and their daily struggles This book is about a veteran and his love story When he was oung he dated a girl named Anna her father
