Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks
Release Date: October 4, 2016
There's always a sense of disappointment when you pick up what you believe is a new book and discover it's not new at all. That's the case with It Must Be Christmas, a holiday anthology with three Christmas romances by Jennifer Crusie, Mandy Baxter, and Donna Alward. None of these are new stories. As soon as I started reading Jennifer Crusie's story, I knew exactly how the story went, so I ended up skipping to the next, only to find the exact same situation. All three were released as novellas in the past two years.
Here are 2014 and 2015 reviews of the three novellas:
Jennifer Crusie - Hot Toy
Mandy Baxter - Christmas With the Billionaire Rancher
Donna Alward - Christmas at Seashell Cottage
I definitely enjoyed them all, but I wish I'd caught that they were all reissues. Had I paid full price for stories that I'd already read and remembered well, I would have been disappointed.
