A cookie specialist finds sweet romance in the snowy Alps of Italy.


Michelle’s Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge doesn’t start until November 23, but I’m already in the mood for Christmas stories.

Gingerbread Kisses is a novella in the Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 collection. Carol is baking cookies for her sister’s wedding in a beautiful hotel in Italy. She practically raised her sister and is feeling a little lost at the thought that she will be losing her. Of course, the fact that the sister is over-demanding and subjects Carol, and everyone else, to her whims, makes the idea of marrying her off a little easier. Whoever heard of skinny gingerbread men? Tom is the manager of the hotel and best friend of the groom.  It’s a sweet romance. Tom has bit of a temper, but is really a nice, thoughtful guy. I like Carol, too, she’s pretty and curvy and nice, but when she has to confront people she can.

It made me smile. Granted the romance was quick but it’s a novella, that’s expected. The fact that they lived on two different continents, Carol in Boston, Tom in Italy, didn’t end up posing much of a problem, either. It was a PG romance with a happy ending and I really liked it. It was perfect holiday reading. I’m looking forward to reading more in the collection.
