I love sweet holiday stories so I looked forward to reading this story. I first read Beach Colors followed by Stargazey Point and Stargazey Nights. I had read several book in between these stories. When I read the first few pages and found that I was reading about a carousel and the reopening of the boardwalk, I became confused with the town in Stargazey Point which had a dying town and the restoration of a carousel. I straightened this out in my mind and continued with the story about Thanksgiving. Although I like the author's writing style and descriptive passages, I found the story to be rushed to a conclusion. I also found that Thanksgiving was not really a part of the story but felt like something just thrown in so that it could be called a holiday story.

Reading Shelly Nobel's "Holidays at Crescent Grove" is like slipping on your favorite cashmere sweater while drinking a very good Merlot. These two novellas begin where "Beach Colors" left off. Margaux Sullivan has married Nick Prescott settling nicely into life at Crescent Grove. The story continues with Margaux's friends Grace Holcombe and Brianna Boyce as Thanksgiving and Christmas approach. They have no idea that the holidays will bring them the possibility of long awaited romance. Not only do these well drawn and mature women struggle with a wide array of conflicting emotion and self doubt as romance enters their lives, but like Margaux they must also tackle important issues of the integrity they consider essential in their careers and daily lives as well. I think most people will love these snowy but heart warming tales.
