As you already know if you follow my blog, I'm a huge Debbie Macomber fan! This one is an anthology of two other stories that I have read and reviewed individually. Here are my overall thoughts on this collection.
`Tis the season for love in these two classic Christmas stories from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
THE CHRISTMAS BASKET
More than ten years ago, high-school sweethearts Noelle McDowell and Thomas Sutton planned to elope—but then he jilted her. This Christmas, Noelle is home to celebrate the holidays, and she and Thom discover they are still in love. Now only the decades-old rivalry between their mothers stands in the way of a second chance together.
THE SNOW BRIDE
It’s a month before Christmas and Jenna Campbell is flying to Alaska to marry a man she met online—until her seatmate takes it upon himself to change her plans. Which is how Jenna ends up stranded in tiny Snowbound, Alaska, alone with Reid Jamison (plus a bunch of eccentric old men and a few grizzly bears). And then there’s a blizzard…. Maybe she’ll be a Christmas bride after all!

**My thoughts**I always love these little anthologies from Debbie Macomber because you get more bang for your buck. I just caution you to carefully read descriptions and story titles as they often are reprinted and have possibly undergone a title change. The two titles in thie one are available as individual titles and I have reviewed them individually.
As a collection, you get a taste of Debbie Macomber's classic ability to take some quirky and fun characters, throw in a little romance, and wrap it all in her trademark holiday magic. The Snow Bride gave me some laugh-out-loud moments. The Christmas Basket touched my heart and made my eyes a little misty. It's a fun way to enjoy Christmas at any time of year.
