Dear Santa,

Please stop by my house and pick up your suit. If you thought I was going to run it to the dry cleaners for you after you left it on my bedroom floor, you’ve got another think coming.

In The One Night Stand Before Christmas, a case of mistaken identity leads to a night of possibility…and the need for a Christmas miracle. I adored the way JAston tied up this trilogy of novellas. They were all heartwarming stories with various amounts of humor which have me welcoming the holiday season. 🙂

It was so good! And I loved how Teddy didn’t really lie about anything. And the humor had me chuckling so many time – just what I needed, truly!

The One Night Stand Before Christmas is Noel’s story and I’d been eager for it because, of the three Winter sisters, she seemed the most cynical. Which was ironic considering her love of Christmas. We didn’t really get the “why” behind her cynicism, which was disappointing, but I enjoyed how Santa 😉 diminished it just a little. What were your expectations for Noel’s story?

I kind of guessed about her cynicism in the way she described her past relationships. She had been with guys who didn’t really care about her. She felt just as alone while she was in a couple as she did when she wasn’t. And she also didn’t feel like it was worth the effort.

I knew right away Noel was mistaken about Teddy/Santa but I honestly think he’d have agreed to anything she asked he was so taken with her. Talk about a meet cute. And then he was so charming and good with the kids. I’d have fallen for him, too. What did you think about Teddy/Santa?

Yeah, Teddy definitely was taken with her immediately! And from that moment, I kind of had an inkling about who he might be 😉 And I loved how taken with him Noel was from the start, too!

I was giggle-snorting when Noel decided Teddy was just a fling even though she really liked him and proceeded to make her escape. But I also felt for her not wanting to take a chance. There was a story there, I’m sure. The way things turned out, JAston has me believing in magical small towns and Christmas miracles. 🙂 You?

She really didn’t think it could be anything more. And in a way, I understand that – as she thought he was someone else. At the same time, I really enjoyed how they met again. Christmas miracles are the best! And I adored how it was like a Hallmark movie – only hotter 😉 

The epilogue was a nice touch. It stayed true to Noel and Teddy’s story and we also got updates on Holly and Ginger. I appreciated that. Did you like the ending?

I agree! It truly was nice to see the other sisters and how they were doing. Plus, it brought more substance to the series as a whole.

Reindeer Falls has been a pleasant place to spend some time along with getting to know the Winter sisters. I delighted in watching them all find their HEA with some help from a little holiday magic.

    This series sounds so fun! I love the title and the synopsis on this one – and it seems that it delivered. I may be reading these soon. Maybe for COYER read-a-thon since I think I saw them on KU. Love these chats 🙂
