Publisher's Summary

In Montana Sky Christmas, USA Today best-selling author Debra Holland offers seven short stories set in the small town of Sweetwater Springs, Montana in 1894.

These holiday stories are about various kinds of Christmas love - the romance between a man and a woman, the devotion of a husband to his wife's memory, and the love of a child for her goose. You'll hear about familiar characters from Sweetwater Springs and come to know new ones - many of whom you'll see again in future Montana Sky Series books and novellas.

The stories take place after Stormy Montana Sky, book three in the Montana Sky Series, but this anthology can be listened to as a standalone book.

Love It

I always love Christmas stories. Had to laughw when the goose attacked the bandit, also that the sheriff was female. The narrator did a wonderful job.

Montana Sky Christmas

In December 2012 I read the Kindle edition of Montana Sky Christmas and I remember thinking that this is a beautiful collection of short stories. As a fan of the Montana Sky Series, it was a wonderful insight into the lives of secondary characters.

I experienced a terrible loss this year so when I sat down to listen to the audio-book I was in a very different frame of mind. Montana Sky Christmas is still a beautiful collection of short stories that can be read as part of the series or as a stand alone piece.

Although I already knew the stories, I listened to it from a different perspective and was left feeling uplifted. I am adding Montana Sky Christmas to my annual Christmas listening list.

Didn't keep my attention

This book was okay. It's full of different Christmas stories with all different characters. Only the first story really stuck with me and wishing it were it's own book. All of the stories were "feel-good" stories and cute. I just lost interest and I might've returned the book had I been able to. I ended up skipping to the next story with a couple of them. I've read books from this author before. But this book I just couldn't stick with it.

anthology of short stories

I enjoyed the audio version of this book!

What a different style of book! This is a bunch of short stories that at first don't seem interlaced but by the last story it all comes together! Both new and older side characters get their own short stories in this wonderful collection!

Sweet & Heartwarming Yuletide Stories

What did you love best about Montana Sky Christmas?

It was a joy to revisit the characters residing in and around Sweetwater Springs during the Christmas season. If you are not feeling the Christmas spirit when you start these stories, you certainly will be! I can see myself listening to these again and again for the warm fuzzies feel they render.

Who was your favorite character and why?

OMG! How can I pick a favorite when each story pulled at my heartstrings?

I'll mention just four favorites from the collection:

Kayleigh's story was exciting and treacherous as she strove to save Prince, her cherished pet goose, from her own family's Christmas table.

I finally found out how the town of Sweetwater Springs hired a female sheriff! I'd been dying for this story and it does not disappoint!

Pepe's story will pull at your heartstrings with a huge tug. He loves Lucia, but doesn't have anything to offer her. I've wanted Pepe to have his own HEA since I first met him in Debra's books so this tale was a special treat.

The heartwarming story of a mix-up that evolved to much more. Louisa Cannon thought that Red Macalister wanted to take knitting classes from her...

Which scene was your favorite?

I had too many favorites to mention them all. I'll share a quote from the story of Louisa & Red Macalister. He treasured his worn, holey red socks... This is why:

"The Christmas I was sixteen, my ma and I were poorer than church mice. My pa died when I was two, taking her heart with him." A smile curved his lips. "She could have remarried for a more comfortable life. But she couldn't bring herself to do it. We were happy, though, her and I. Just when I was getting old enough to do odd jobs, bring in some money to make her life easier, she got sick. I stayed home to nurse her. She had no strength left. But somehow she'd scraped together the last of her red yarn and made me a pair of stockings. My Christmas gift that year."
Sensing his thoughts lingered in the past, Louisa brushed a finger over the scrap in her palm.
"She died several weeks later."
Louise caught her breath, aching for the pain of that young man.
"I took a lot of ribbing for wearing red stockings. But I didn't give them up, even when I could afford to. I felt like they kept my ma close. Like she was with me."
Tears welled up in Louisa's eyes. One dripped over.
He caught the drop on the tip of his finger. "They brought me luck."
"That's why you're called Red. I wondered."

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Join us for a trip to historic Sweetwater Springs, Montana at Christmastime...

Any additional comments?

I would be remiss if I didn't mention Lara Asmundson's performance of each of the stories. Her voice is pleasant and clear and she skillfully differentiates between the characters. Her inflections are faultless and both her female and male voices sound realistic. I always thoroughly enjoy listening to her professional narrations and this wondrous set of tales is no exception.

As an avowed fan of Debra's books, I found each of these up-close-and-personal tales of the town's characters whom I've grown to think of as dear friends to be captivating and highly entertaining. After I finished each of them, I had the feeling of walking on clouds with a happy heart and a satisfied smile. If you love Debra's Sweetwater Springs tales, these should be a must-read! I highly recommend MONTANA SKY CHRISTMAS to anyone who delights in sweet Christmas stories. These are guaranteed to warm your heart!
