The New York Times Bestselling Author of The First Love Cookie Club returns to Twilight, Texas, with one brand-new story and three stories never before in print!
There's a legend in Twilight, Texas. It says that if on Christmas you sleep with kismet cookies under your pillow and dream of your one true love, he will be your destiny.
Carrie, Raylene, Christine, and Flynn are all members of the Christmas Cookie Club. Each has a story to tell, and each discovers the miracles of the season and the power of love.
Carrie: Reconnects with her high school sweetheart... the only man she's ever loved.
Raylene: Discovers that the daughter she gave away at birth is living right in Twilight....
Christine: Has given up on love...until the man of her dreams walks through her shop door.
Grace: It's Christmas Eve and Flynn and Jesse Calloway are thrilled to be expecting a new baby. Then Flynn's car hits a patch of ice, and Jesse must move earth...and heaven...to save her and their unborn child.

I wouldn't buy another book wwith this narrator. There seemed to be pause and emphasis in all of the wrong places. combined with poor characterisation. I found it difficult to follow the story in particular distinguishing one character from another when they were speaking.
Yes I would try another book by the author. I gave up because of the narrator.
"A Jewel of a Collection"
Lori Wilde hits another home run. I love Twilight, TX from the beautiful descriptions of the town to the people who live there. These town's members always help a person out. When Carrie finds out that that her high school sweetheart is returning with a reality TV show. The town pulls together to keep her secret from being discovered. Raylene, who owns the town's Horny Toad Bar with her husband, shows that true love can survive anything. Once Earl finds out her secret, he leaves to deal with the information. Shannon becomes her barmaid while Earl is gone but seems to remind her of someone though she can't quite put her finger on it. Will Earl return? Then there is Christine, who had dreams of becoming an Olympic hopeful that were crushed after a terrible accident when she was 16. She owns and runs the towns bakery. In walks the man who was her high school crush asking for a cake for his daughter. Will she finally have the family she's always dreamed of?
I love the littlest story at the end with Jesse and Flynn - it was the perfect touch to finish the book.
I look forward to reading other stories set in this little town. Each one is a perfect jewel that you'll want to hold onto.
"Warm , fuzzy Christmas stories"
Yes, because I like happily ever afters.
I think it's Jesse. He had such a bad break but is not bitter and is so grateful for getting his love.
When Jesse and Flynn had their baby, Grace.
Not only was, but I did.
This is an enjoyable , uplifting book. It is nice to listen to books that are not extremely graphic and have a nice ending.
"Love This Series"
The three words that I would use are feel-good, engaging, fun
When Raylene discovers her daughter.
Some stories were good others so so
Narrator to sappy it turned me off to the book and almost didn't finish. I found myself just wishing it was over
"Quaint Christmas collection"
Yes I did enjoy her stories, I would like to try another of her books
Funny likeable creative
I would like to see Lori wilde start a series with the characters in this book if she already hasnt
