This has become one of the few books I've been unable to even finish. It includes four romance stories with a Christmas theme.
The anthology includes:
This time next year- To be fair this story was good. This one deserves four stars. A beautiful coming back home story and even though it was a short story (less than three hours) the romance was very believeable. Plus it has one of the best narrators ever: Therese Plummer.
A Rare Gift- Well this one has a male narrator. His female voices sound terrible. So from the beggining I didn't like it. Then as it turns out this is a love story between ex inlaws (that's taboo for me). A woman actively trying to seduce her sister's ex husband (yuck) and on Christmas!! And then she wants them to make peace so he can marry her! Awful, just awful.
It's not Christmas without you- Bad narration. This is when I just gave up and realized this is not a book for me. The narrator sounded robotic and the story just didn't catch my attention and interest so I stopped listening.
In my humble opinion this book is not worth a credit.

I tried to listen to all of the first 3 stories, but they were just too boring. Even if they'd had a good narrator it would not have helped, but listened to the fourth in it's entirety. The narration of the fourth story was good, read with feeling.
The star is for the fourth story. Stories 1-3 do not even rate a star, in my opinion.

What made the experience of listening to Holiday Kisses the most enjoyable?
I have read this previously on kindle and loved all of the stories, but I jumped at the chance to listen to them on audio when I saw that 2 of the 4 were read by a couple of my favourite narrators, Therese Plummer and Macleod Andrews.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Holiday Kisses?
All of the stories in this were memorable and I loved all of them, which is unusual for an anthology. They were all really well crafted love stories with real feeling.
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
I particularly enjoyed Therese Plummer and Macleod Andrews' performances. They are always excellent and I am delighted when I see that something I want to listen to is narrated by either of them. I can't rate them highly enough.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The Shannon Stacey story, Mistletoe and Margaritas, was particularly moving. It was a truly heartfelt story of moving on after loss. In fact, I enjoyed this story even more on audio than when I originally read it.
Any additional comments?
I will most definitely listen to this again.
