    2. There's nothing I like better then reading Christmas Novella's. They really get me in the mood for the holidays. It's also a great time to try new authors. Christmas Angels is a very quick read. I don't usually like to read romances that are written by men, they don't give me what I need in my romances, and I wasn't shocked that I felt that way with Christmas Angel. The story is fine, but that's just it. It was only okay. I was missing something. It's much closer to woman's fiction then romance [...]


    3. Favorite Quotes:I think that angels are all around us. I think people like your mother, who we love and miss, are around us, even if we can't see them. Sometimes they might take the form of a cardinal or a hummingbird, or sometimes, their spirit might live on in the tree we pick out at Christmas.Most people go through their lives not seeing what's all around them. It's easy to get lost in this world. It's hard to stay present.My Review:A seasonal set decorator spends her days designing Christmas [...]

    5. This book reminded me of those lovely cheesy Christmas movies you get to watch on tv on lifetime. It was cheesy but in a good way. The only slight problem that I have with this story is it length. I wanted more. I wanted more so that the story and characters could develop more and then it would go from being a good cheesy novel to a great one. Kate is a single mum. In her 30s. Working as a design/decorator for a large interior landscape company called bedecking and bedazzling. The job is great f [...]


    6. I've been anxiously awaiting Viola Shipman's The Hope Chest and was excited to see this Christmas short story. Christmas Angels is the tale of two people who are not looking forward to the holiday. A widower and his young son and a woman who broke up the previous Christmas come together to regain their belief in angels. A quick read, there is a very serious Christmas message for everyone. It's a joy to see a young child recover and believe in love and miracles.


    7. This is the second book by Viola Shipman that I have read.In true Viola fashion this is a feel good holiday story, a short story that you can quickly finish in between books. The ideal Christmas read with lovely characters that are looking for happiness.I would recommend this book if you are looking for something short during the holidays.Thank you to Viola Shipman and Netgalley for the ARC.


    8. Christmas Angels by Viola Shipman is a sweet, heartwarming romance that is sure to melt your heart. Even though it is a short novella, the characters are well-written and the story is well-thought out. I'd definitely recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance that lifts your spirt and warms your heart.


    9. Initially i found this story difficult to get into -- as it was a novella, i was expecting action from the outset. However, it's a slow-burn that makes the story more worthwhile. I enjoyed getting under the skin of Kate the lonely designer and particularly liked her warmth towards her customers. An enjoyable, easy, Christmassy read. 4* from me.


    10. Review to come soon.Quick thoughts:Cute fun and quick read. Very Hallmark movie. A sweet story that would be perfect to savor with a cup of hot cocoa and cookies after some holiday decorating. Enjoyable!


    11. Short sweet novella with a darling character in Kate. This one has a good Christmas spirit to it. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC== this is the perfect relaxing read for the afternoon or evening.


    12. Review was originally posted onThe Writer's InkwellChristmas Angels is a short novella that reminds me a bit of a Lifetime or Hallmark holiday movie, in a good way. I wish I could really say a lot about it, but the truth is, it’s really too short for a true review. In fact, my biggest criticism is about the length. Little to nothing is developed throughout the story and that’s a shame because with another fifty pages or so, this could have been a really cute holiday novella. There’s nothin [...]

    18. Reviewed at Keeper BookshelfThere are times in life that we really need the ability to believe in miracles, to sense the angels all around us… but those are often times when our willingness to see and believe is at it’s lowest point. This is the state of mind and emotions that Kate and Chad are in this Christmas. Only a little boy, Coop, serious beyond his years seems to have that childlike wonder left to take a chance to believe.Last year around Christmas Chad’s wife lost her battle again [...]

She could make anyplace sparkle for Christmas. But Kate was sad this Christmas. She had broken up with her boyfriend and wasn't in the holiday spirit.

    21. I didn't realize when I requested this book that it was a novella. I think I sat down, started reading and before I knew it, it was over. This was my first novella. I'm sure they are perfect for people without a lot of reading time, but I felt like I was just getting into the story and then, poof, it was over. However, that's just my thoughts on novellas.As for the book, when I saw it being offered on Net Galley, another book by Viola Shipman, my hand moved with lightning speed to request it. I [...]


    22. A heartwarming Christmas story with all the hallmarks of a feel-good Christmas movie - albeit that it is a little bit cliched and tongue-in-cheek cheesy in parts. It has the ingredients that will ensure everyone reading it begins to believe in angels again, especially if they have undergone any form of heartache, and it will make the reader feel warm and glowing inside, holding on to the idea that love and belief conquer all.The characters are engaging in their ordinariness and the pace is fast, [...]

Her work keeps her from spending the holidays with her family but it also gives her less time to face the pain of a breakup just before Christmas the previous year.

Coincidences abound throug [...]


    26. 3.5 stars. I don't usually read Christmas books so early but couldn't resist this one because of the author, cover and title of the book. This is a sweet story and the writing is very good but it was just too short!! I was a little disappointed when it ended so quickly because I was really liking where it was going with Kate, Chad and Coop. Coop is adorable, by the way! It would be nice to see this story continue, perhaps next Christmas? I do have to say that it did put me in the mood to bake so [...]
