I was asked to review this for the holidays and totally jumped at the chance as I knew I'd need a little something to help me get into the holiday spirit! And this totally was the perfect trick :) I don't read shorts very often, though I don't know why--they're perfect for a short snippet before bed, and these were cute, romantic, and warmed my heart. I particularly loved the Christmas at Central Bark one (though by the end of it, I was cursing the fact that we have no good Indian food where I live...what I wouldn't give for some naan!). All of the stories were fun though, full of romance, and just generally sweet. If you're looking for a tale that will let you relax a little, enjoy the season, and get into the holiday spirit, this is a great choice!
