"All is Calm All is Bright" by Colleen Coble contains two Christmas novellas.
All is Calm Lauren Everman remembers her time at Bluebird Ranch when she was a foster kid as a haven, so when she needs somewhere to hide, that's where she heads. Brendan Waddell is immediately drawn to her, but can also tell she's hiding something. Will they be able to sort things out before her past catches up with her?
All is Bright Delilah Carter manages the Tidewater Inn and is planning the wedding for her friend, but when her car is forced off the road, she wonders if someone from her past is trying to harm her. Sheriff Tom Bourne doesn't feel like he's in the same league as Delilah and has kept his feelings for her to himself. He realizes that he needs to do what he can to keep her safe or whomever is trying to hurt her may succeed.
"All is Calm All is Bright" has romance, suspense, and mystery all wrapped up within the Christmas setting. Things happen quickly in the stories which is expected in a novella. I liked the characters in both stories and rooted for them to be able to solve the case and get the bad guys. In "All is Calm",
the mystery kept me guessing up until the end, but I had guessed what was going on in "All is Bright". I still didn't know all the details of what was going to happen, so the story wasn't totally predictable. It was fun to have a quick and enjoyable book to fill a day.
