I don't believe I've read any other Christmas stories quite like the ones in Christmas Eve. Not all of the stories were about Christmas, but that doesn't mean you can't curl up with them near the fire at Christmas time and have a wonderful evening. The author tries wholeheartedly to envelop you in each of her 13 plots. I would recommend if you read no other tales in this book, read "Christmas Eve" and "The Springs of Affection".
