OK, ok, I know these are Christmas stories. But why did LLM list them as part of the Stone Creek series?
These are contemporary stories, using the family name of O?Ballivan. Other than the name, there really wasn?t anything tying the stories back to the Stone Creek series. Frankly, I felt cheated; I felt it was just a marketing gimmick to sell more books.
"A Stone Creek Christmas" -- If you have no problem with a veterinarian (Olivia) having conversations with her dog and finding a lost reindeer (in Colorado), this is the book for you.
Because it is a holiday story, I suspended incredulity and enjoyed the tale.
"At Home in Stone Creek" -- This is a shorter story about one of the O?Ballivan twins ? Ashley (younger sister to Olivia) .
Owner of Ashley's Bed and Breakfast, she is still pining for her former lover, Jack. Because of the secret nature of his job, Jack left her sometime in the past. Now Jack is back and he?s in trouble; folks are looking to shorten his life line.
This seemed to be a significantly less fleshed-out story than the first one in this book. LLM?s strength lies in her characterizations, so it was a surprise to see so little done with these characters.

Holiday in Stone Creek
Always like Linda Lael Miller's work and this one carries on with the tradition.
