"Mister Christmas" by Fern Michaels. Instead of Christmas in Colorado with her brother, lawyer Claire O‘Brien visits her ailing client Donald Flynn in Ireland to change his will; but his nephew Quinn Conner objects.

"The Yellow Rose of Christmas" by Marie Bostwick. In Too Much, Texas middle age Velvet Tudmore gave up on love until a secret admirer surfaces with yellow roses and more, and with a promise to come out in the open at the annual Christmas ball.

"Nightmare on Elf Street" by Laura Levine. In elf attire for a mall gig, Jaine Austen (see Death of a Neighborhood Witch) tries to get a picture of her cat Prozac and deal with a bah humbug Santa who ends up murdered with her as the only suspect.

"Room at the Inn" by Cindy Myers. In Colorado, a blizzard forces Barbara and Jimmy Stanowski and others drivers to seek shelter in a nearby cabin where he tells her that he quit his secure job to start a business with his dreamer friend.

Though the genres differ, these are four delightful holiday tales.
