"Epiphany," in which three modern-day wisemen embark on a quest unlike any they've ever experienced

And more

Predictable rom-coms. these are overlong and rather sad.

Some repeats from her other Christmas anthology and some novellas that were individually published, but still a great read. The preface and afterward are worth reading - lots of information about Christmas stories, movies, and TV shows.

An interesting read, with engaging stories. It is nice to see that not everything works out, but that it might be for the best or be what is deserving of the protagonist.
