3.0 out of 5 stars Cute collection... 17 Nov 2013
By rebecca moe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This collection includes three previously published stories ("Carrie", "Raylene", and "Christine") and one new one ("Grace"), featuring the couple from the very first book in the series, Flynn and Jesse. I've read two other books in the Twilight, Texas series previously, but you don't have to have read them to follow the stories in this collection.

Read all together, the stories are perhaps not as effective as they would be if read on their own--having three stories in a row all stressing the "you'll marry your high school sweetheart" legend stretched its credibility a bit, if you're in a critical mood. Actually, more than one major plot point in these four stories depends on some pretty convenient coincidences, so if you are feeling critical, you might just want to steer clear.

If you're just looking for a cute and fluffy holiday read, though, you've come to the right place.

I thought the two middle stories, "Raylene" and "Christine" were definitely the strongest narratives of the group; I never did warm up to the two main characters of "Carrie", and "Grace" was too short to really engage me--though perhaps if I had read Flynn and Jessie's novel first, I would have felt differently. Actually, my favorite story in the book wasn't even that of a title character--the main romance in "Raylene" wasn't even that of Ray and Earl, but instead featured Raylene's long-lost daughter Shannon and her new beau Nate. Though I was definitely pulling for Ray and Earl to reunite, Shannon and Nate were by far my favorite romance in the whole collection.

As holiday reads go, these stories are cute but somewhat lacking in substance. For long time readers of the series, though, I can see how each one would be like revisiting with old friends--they definitely do have that cozy, small-town "home for the holidays" feel to them.

Rating: A solid B for a holiday read that will leave you with warm fuzzies, though they are mainly sugary confections at heart.

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt Holiday Romance 13 Nov 2013
By Lisa M. Filipe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lori Wilde really brings out the heartfelt warmth of Christmas with this collection of Twilight Novellas. I am not sure which story I enjoyed more, a Second Chance Romance, a New Romance and New Relationship between mother and daughter, a Second Chance Romance with a Chance at a Family, or the Sweet Delivery of Baby Grace.

Each story made my heart feel lighter, as the pages just flew by, until I was at the end and I wanted to read it over again. If you are a Fan of Small-Town Romance, Lori Wilde's Twilight Texas Series is a must read, and this novella is a Must Read for the season!!

5.0 out of 5 stars HJ Top Pick! 10 Nov 2013
By Harlequin Junkie Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Christmas Cookie Collection by Lori Wilde is all four Christmas novellas based on her highly popular Twilight, Texas series. Each is filled with tales of love and center around the town's claim to fame: the Sweetheart Legend.
Novella #1 Carrie:

Carrie MacGregor has never gotten over her first love Mark Leland. He left their hometown of Twilight and never looked back, becoming a hotshot television personality in L.A. When his job brings him back to town, the attraction between Mark and Carrie burns just as hot as it did in high school. They struggle to rein in their emotions knowing that a reconciliation wouldn't work, given that their lives are so different now. But are they really looking for different things after all?

Novella #2 Raylene:

Raylene's husband, Earl, walked out on her last Christmas after learning a secret Raylene kept from him for over three decades: she had a daughter that she gave up and has never seen. Devastated by her husband's disappearance, Raylene prays he will return so they can work things out. When a mysterious woman applies for a job at the Horny Toad bar, owner Raylene wonders just what Shannon is hiding. Things aren't adding up and even handsome Nate Deavers takes notice of Shannon and her secrets. Just when Raylene thinks she has solved the puzzle, more surprises come her way that may change her life forever.'

Novella #3 Christine:

Christmas this year is going to be difficult for Christine. Her parents are overseas, she just lost her beloved cat Cocoa, and she received some disappointing health news. Things finally begin to look up when her high school crush Eli walks into her bakery. Fate has given them the opportunity to be together so Eli jumps at the chance to take Christine out on a date. With their one and only previous kiss indelibly branded in their minds, they realize they have even more chemistry now than when they were teenagers. They both want to explore a relationship but have been hurt before, so Christine and Eli have to reconcile past issues and find the courage to move forward.

Novella #4 Grace:

Flynn and Jesse have had a long road to finding happiness, but with Flynn nine months pregnant and both of them doing well in their careers, they finally feel peace in their lives. But soon everything gets turned upside down as an afternoon helping a local family puts Flynn in a dangerous situation on slick roads. Jesse's search for Flynn begins with an unlikely companion and it's up to the two of them to find and save the mother and her unborn baby.

All four stories were truly wonderful. Lori Wilde's writing is a joy to read and I loved her descriptive prose. The emotionally charged scenes just sucked me in, drawing me into the storyline even further, some leaving me breathless. It was easy to connect with the many characters we meet in this collection, but I find myself really attached to Raylene's story. I think her longing for her husband's return and to finally meet her daughter comes across so clearly in the story that it's hard not to feel those emotions right along with her. (Although I really loved all of the stories just as much!)

The Christmas Cookie Collection would be a great way to brighten your holiday with some lovely HEA's and some good old small-town charm. Very highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming, Authentic, and Superbly Written! 10 Nov 2013
By GREEN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Christmas Cookie Collection by Lori Wilde is a wonderful journey into the hearts and lives of four women. Each of them has a reason to be cautious when it comes to love and romantic promises. A couple even believe they have permanently closed off that part of themselves by building giant walls around their hearts. Everything changes when something or someone causes a spark of hope to ignite and the pains of the past start to fall to the wayside. Hearts can be mended with a little faith and a touch of Christmas magic.
This is the perfect book to read if you are ready to welcome the Christmas spirit. These stories are heartwarming, authentic, and superbly written. Lori Wilde has a true gift for capturing the essence and vulnerability of the human heart. She flawlessly breathes life into each of her characters.
Take some time to sip some hot chocolate and enjoy this book.
