I have to admit that I was disappointed with this book. The stories were supposed to be short and sweet, but to short in my opinion. I specifically bought this book because I love the Hawk's Way series and wanted to read A Hawk's Way Christmas. This featured Rolleen Whitlaw, one of Zach and Rebecca's adopted children. Also featured is Galvin Talbot who was first introduced to us in Rolleen's sister Jewel's story 'The Virgin Groom.' In this book we learn that Galvin is a widowed father and Rolleen is an unwed pregnant woman afraid to tell her parents the truth. Rolleen and Gavin decide to pretend to be engaged over Christmas. Rolleen figures at least that way Christmas is not spoiled for her family. Gavin also has his reasons for helping Rolleen. The whole story covers about a two week period. I love the Whitelaws and was disappointed that there was not more to this story. I still would not have missed reading this story about another Whitelaw child.
The rest of the stories are short and sweet as well. For a short story they were still good. I loved reading about Stony in 'Taming the Lone Wolf.' The best parts were when he interacted with Rose. I thought that it was hilarious when Rose told Stony that she did not like him and he said thats okay because I don't like you either. Of course, Stony ends up falling in love with her.
If you have no expectations for in-depth stories, if you go into this book expecting short stories than you will probably enjoy reading this book by two great authors.
