did She told me once, not long after we first met, out at a bar in Houston with Ben He may have asked all the questions, but I remember all the answers Mac Fraser Classically trained at a conservatory somewhere in Ohio.But I remember all the answers Look at this consistency from Ben s unguarded interest in people to Jasper still using that information for his ambition Her use of kissing missing, friendship, and here, Jasper clearly established as a trouble maker but follows all the rules for Kristen.Kristen is a lovely character, and this is a strong novella I wish I knew her better Whether Jasper was so clear or dominant character, I m not sure but I did feel like Kristen didn t feel as strongly though still very strongly characterized.So, whew, the rare breed of fully satisfying, even swoony holiday novella Just skip right to this one, which I give a 4.5 How the hell to rate the anthology itself I read this book for Kate Clayborn Her novella, Missing Christmas, is a winner and highly recommended I m impressed that she picks up on a secondary character from her Chance of a Lifetime series so easily Jasper comes to life in the opening pages almost as if the first book was

depth and complexity here in his own story that make his actions understandable Jasper always seemed to me like a character in need of his own story As with Love Lettering out at the end of the month, Clayborn is adept at constructing complex characters who do not always make easily understood decisions In this story, Christmas for Kristen and Jasper is about connections to others While Kristen s life is emotionally stable and filled with strong bonds, Jasper struggles in life to connect Watching his evolution on this, especially with the help of the woman with whom he has fallen in love, is sweet and satisfying.Clayborn has quickly become a favorite author for me Pre reading bookstagram review overall Night by Fern Michaels DNF Mistletoe and Mimosas by Tara Sheets C Missing Christmas by

was a foster kitten I liked how the characters hadof a connection than in the first story and it didn t take too long to figure out what had happened to them in the past 3 Missing Christmas by Kate Clayborn 3 stars Other reviewers are going crazy for this story, but I didn t find anything too special about it This is a short story about minor characters in one of Kate Clayborn s previous novels, which I haven t read However, I didn t feel too lost even though I had read the previous novel To me, this one was about 2 business partners sharing a kiss and then explaining their hidden feeling to one other Cute, but not too special 3 cute Christmas type novella length stories.Perfect reading to put you in the holiday mood it will set the mood perfectly.The romance was a nice addition to the holiday book.Published October 29th 2019 by ZebraI was given a complimentary copy of this book Thank you.All opinions expressed are my own. I am going to be honest and admit that I read this anthology strictly for the Kate Clayborn novella I was not disappointed The premise of two best friends and colleagues who have so much mutual respect for the other that they absolutely refuse to address the fact they are stupid in love with each other was so splendidly well done The juxtaposition of a grumpy who doesn t like Christmas for very valid reasons and the sunflower who does love Christmas coming together over some baked holiday coo I am going to be honest and admit that I read this anthology strictly for the Kate Clayborn

s perfectly content to be on her own Until her childhood nemesis, Sebastian, comes to town When a snowstorm and a stranded kitten bring them together on Christmas Eve, Layla discovers he s all grown up and she may have one dream leftMISSING CHRISTMAS Kate Clayborn It s all work and no play for two longtime friends turned business partners Kristen and Jasper until an unexpected kiss turns things personal Will it mean the end of something, or the beginning With a major contract in the balance, Christmas around the corner, and a lot of unspoken feelings, it may take an unpredictable blizzard in New England to seal the deal This is mostly a review of the Clayborn novella 4.5 stars with a brief note about why I requested A Snowy Little Christmas because Kate Clayborn s name is attached to it

spoiler alert this didn t happen Starry Night, Fern MichaelsDNFI struggled with the third person point of view right from the start, and the story didn t grab my attention Approximately five pages in, I realized this story wasn t going to work for me I DNF d it..decision timeAfter a false start, I just decided to skip ahead to the good part Friends, I knew that would be the Kate Clayborn novella I loved the Chance of a Lifetime series, and discovering Missing Christmas was another story in that universe was an unexpected, awesome bonus Missing Christmas, Kate Clayborn4.5 starsThe first book in the Chance of a Lifetime series, Beginner s Luck, is still my favorite I loved Ben, I loved Kitand I hoped the author would revisit Jasper Ben s best friend played a significant role in the story, and his actions had major repercussions on the relationship between the principal characters But by the end of the novel, it was still hard to tell if Jasper was a bad guy or simply desperate and dumb.Turns out he was desperate, and because of it, he did a dumb thing And it nearly cost him his relationship with Benand with the third partner in their fledgeling business, Kristen But because he s a good guy who made a terrible decision, she forgave him Oh, and also because she s in love with him Missing Christmas is a delightful and romantic friends to lovers story, with a heaping dose of snowed in with one bed, thrown in for good measure Jasper and Kristen are brilliant at business, but failures at love These two business partners who spend LOTS of time together carry a torch for one another for entirely TOO LONG, pretending they don t like like each other After an unexpected, passionate kiss at the end of a long business day, sexy feelings turn into incredible awkward feelings And true to form, they both retreat and try to pretend the kiss never happened Fortunately, a road trip provides them with one last chance to get it right, and the journey literally and figuratively is a treat.Missing Christmas is the perfect blend of angst and romance, featuring two principals you can t help but love and root for It s one holiday gift you should go ahead and unwrap straight away Bonus points for the Ben Kit cameo Mistletoe and Mimosas by Tara SheetI haven t read it Yet I ll admit I wanted to read this Christmas anthology because of Fern Michaels being a contributing author However, the novella I ended up liking the best was by Kate Clayborn I had never heard of her before, but her novella that was told from the dual point of view was different enough to really catch and

other was fun, quirky and so much fun I especially enjoyed the male character s expression of his feelings I love Christmas anthologies because you can complete a story in a short amount of time and get the feel good out of it before you have to put it down and do something else This anthology was very enjoyable because all three stories had a stranded in the snow with someone of the opposite sex theme going for it That is one of my favorite This was definitely worth reading I was given a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley All thoughts are my own I may go back and read the others later, but I only bought this for the Kate Clayborn story And I liked it Definitely not my favorite of her stuff, I don t think novella is her best length at this point, just because I didn t feel connected enough to Jasper s issues Maybe it would have helped if I had reread the book with Ben first But nothing she writes is bad and this was good to read.
