Five and Dime Christmas by Cynthia Hickey, Patty Smith Hall, Susanne Dietze, and Christiana Lorenzen // Review

My Review: Four couples find love at Christmastime thanks to Woolworth's Five and Dime. 

A Merry Little Christmas by Susanne Dietze

Hattie Scott tasks on a second job working as a secretary for the man compiling a report that could put her family's livelihood at risk. 

An enjoyable Christmas romance, I loved how Hattie and Timothy bonded over their shared faith. Timothy is a kind and honorable man, I loved his heart for others, and how he was always offering to help others out. 

A Home for Christmas by Patty Smith Hall

Essie wants to do more with her life than exist for society, so she takes a job at the Five and Dime, where she meets a minister who has taken in 6 orphan boys. 

A heartwarming and sweet holiday read, I liked that Essie wanted to bless others with what she had been given. And Max is a wonderful man with a big heart. Such a cute story. 

The Light of Christmas by Christina Lorenzen

A charming workplace romance. 

Henry is determined to work his place up from the tool counter to the accounting offices of Woolworth's, while working the sales floor he meets Lizzie. Lizzie is working hard to keep her family home, can they overcome Henry's match making mother and their differing stations to find love? 

I liked how so much of the story occurred within the walls of the store, bringing to life the hustle and bustle of the store at Christmastime. Henry is a driven and goal-oriented man, I liked how meeting Lizzie helped him to see things differently and imagine a new future.

Lunch with Maggie by Cynthia Hickey

After being left at the altar, Maggie Larson isn't sure if she will love again. She befriends a young girl and her widower father while working at Woolworth's lunch counter. Will she change her mind about love?

A sweet romance of second chances and hope at Christmas time. I liked how Seth was understanding and patient with Maggie, plus his daughter was super cute!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
