My thoughts:
“A Winter Wonderland” by Fern Michaels
Wow, talk about instalove! I know it's a novella, but wait..they met...they talked for a few secs the next day...then they were in love?
Omg so insta.
This one had a case of needed to be longer. Needed some meat on the bones. It could have made a cheesy hallmark movie for sure.

“The Joy of Christmas” by Holly Chamberlin
Sad fact, but it was so boring, snooze alert.

“The Christmas Thief” by Leslie Meier
She should change jobs and make new friends...just saying.
A theft at the hotel! the end, so before that the book is about man meeting woman.

“The Christmas Collector” by Kristina McMorris
I finished this one yesterday...and I have forgotten what it was about. It must have been really bad
