A Puppy for Christmas by Carole Mortimer, Myrna Mackenzie, Nikki Logan

On the Secretary's Christmas List\The Soldier, the Puppy and Me\The Patter of Paws at Christmas


This is a cute three stories dealing with Christmas and puppies. It almost makes you want to go out and get a puppy. But I will resist because one dog is asleep on my bed and one on the floor by my bed and no kids around anymore just their pets.

The first two stories have cute puppies that you see interact with their new families. The third is a little different as they are wild African puppies in a zoo. Not for cuddling.

They are short novellas. I liked them but they are short. They also have love scenes that I skimmed over. They fall in love in a short amount of time or realize it in fast amount of time.

The Patter of Paws at Christmas by Nikki Logan
Ingrid and Gabriel are taking watch at the zoo over Christmas. The wild dogs have puppies and they are waiting for the puppies to come out of the den. So they can give them shots, tag them and make sure they are healthy.
They were a couple for a brief time. They both have insecurities that their families helped them get. They fight their feelings as they watch for the puppies.

For three short stories they are good. They bring smiles on your face as you read about the animals and holidays.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of them by Netgalley and Harlequin.
