    Danga second Christmas book in a row that I consider a dud First it was Snowbound in the Earl's Castle by Fiona Harper and now this one Coming Home For Christmas a collection of 3 Fern Michaels novellas I had such high hopes for it The cover is soooo cozy and Christmasy and the descriptions made me hope it would be like Hallmark holiday movies in book form Alas although these stories were corny it wasn't in the good wayThe first story Silver Bells started fine Amy Lee is a movie star who's parents died during the Christmas season years ago Now she returns to her home town where she runs into her old childhood sweetheart who is caring for his twin brother's twins since his sister in law ran out randomly in a stress fit It started alright then the I read the unbelievable the story seemed Soon it went downhill quickly from there The whole time I'm likethis stuff just would NEVER happen I know it's fiction but it's not fantasy or science fictionso I don't understand why it is so far fetched The romance also seemed so forced and the way the characters re fell in love so fast just was so fake The dialogue was so childlike like middle school kids with crushes chatting on facebook Of course I love the Christmasness of it but thats itThe 2nd story Snow Angels also unbelievable A woman who owns a house for battered women and their kids is stranded in a snowstorm with 2 of the kids and winds up at an Olympic skier's cabin where they must spend the days leading up to Christmas Of course like the first story a death of a loved one on Christmas eve the skier's wifeleft him bitter during the Holiday season Fern why all the tragic deaths that happened on Christmas Eve in the characters pasts? It is just really cliche and when it happened in back to back stories it just turned me off These circumstances just wouldn't happen and the love scenes again forced and random I did like the ending but I just was so annoyed by the immaturity of the romanceThe 3rd story I couldn't even get through The writing was just awful and again unbelievable and I couldn't get my attention grabbedThe plus side is Fern Michael's interview at the end of the book She seems like a lovely and sweet person Maybe this was just a dud collection I don't know Ill have to try out another of her books in the future because people seem to like her books and she she seem super sweet But this book please stay away from If you are looking for a heartwarming Christmas tale check out Donna Alward's Sleigh Ride with the Rancher That was a really fun AND believable holiday story that is perfect for reading by a fireplace with a cup of tea
