    The six stories which make up the whole of the book have a delightful seasonal theme and feature an array of people, and animals, who very quickly make an emotional impact. I really enjoyed reading the stories and each one, when finished, left me with a smile on my face and a lovely wa...

    This is a lovely collection of short christmas stories- only two have been published before. These stories are ideal to settle down to read with a nice mug of hot chocolate when making your Christmas list or taking a break from shopping. I loved Katie's books- so it was a real treat to...

    The first thing to note is that this publication has two short stories which have previously been published around Christmas time. However they are short stories and so wonderfully written that it will do you no harm in reading them all over again - just like I have! Candlelight at ...

    To be fair - I only got halfway through. Am not really a lover of short stories in book form - unless they are ghost stories - or in a magazine. I have read some of Katie Ffords books some I have enjoyed whilst others I have struggled and abandoned. Sad to say this was also one but no ...

    An anthology of six Christmas short stories/novellas by Katie Fforde. I don?t intend to review each novella separately. Suffice it to say that there are rock stars and members of the British aristocracy, power cuts, heavy snowfall, cancelled flights, absent parents, Christmas Fair...

    I knew Katie Fforde wasn?t for me before going in, yet I had hopes that mere christmas storys might soften the blow of chiclit-wishful-thinking-hea-utopia - alas, no. The short story format made everything even more unrealistic and I could not deal with the fluff, sorry. Just no. H...

    I usually really don't like a book of short stories. If I'm buying a book (I did get this one as a gift at Christmas), then I want it full of ONE story. That being said this was a cute read. Katie Fforde is an excellent writer but I wouldn't say that you should take this book as the st...

    This book contains six short stories. I received this book as a gift last Christmas and read one story then and have read another two this year - and that's enough! Cosy romance with no tension or drama and cardboard cut-out characters. ...

    What an absolute joy to read over the festive period. I've never read a book of short stories before but throughly enjoyed my first. Katie Fforde is one of my favourite authors so not really surprised I loved it so much. Enjoyed 2 stories more than the others. Especially loved the last...

    I can always count on Katie to get me in the festive mood, I've been a huge fan since I first started reading her books about 7 or 8 years ago, and I have a shelf dedicated only to Katie's books on my bookcase. The Christmas Stocking and Other Stories, is a great collection of festiv...

    Book Reviewed by Stacey on www.whisperingstories.com The Christmas Stocking is a festive book by Katie Fforde featuring six short stories. Beginning with the title story, in which Romy is having nothing but bad luck, from crashing her car to her plane being cancelled so she can?t ...

    Normally I do not like short story books but this one is an exception. The stories are actually a bit longer and I can connect to the character before the story ends. The fact that they all revolve around Christmas time is added bonus. So glad I read this book. ...

    It was enjoyable, but felt less well structured and researched than Fforde's full length novels. I really enjoyed the update story about Fenella and Rupert though, they have always been my favourite Fforde characters. ...

    Very sweet collection. Funny wordings and moments. A bit cliche at times and after awhile there started to appear a pattern in the story lines. ...

    Listened to in audio format. I listened to Katie Fforde's A Christmas Feast and other stories last year which I enjoyed. I was rather reluctant to buy this collection because I thought I may already own the stories. When The Christmas Stocking was released I was pleased I had only r...

    The Christmas Stocking 1/5 I just kept expecting Felix to lure Romy to his house and then kill her ... like what person follows a stranger out into the woods and then stays there for 3 days? They also were both pretty awful to their respective partners, which obviously turned out to ...

    Dit boek gaf me echt het ultieme kerstgevoel! Sommige boeken van deze auteur vind ik erg leuk, andere wat minder. Ik durfde dus een bundel met verhalen wel aan, want dan zit er vast wel wat leuks tussen. En ik zag dit boek toen ik met Rowie in Amsterdam bij de Waterstones was. Ik...

    I adored this book and a perfect fit to build up to Christmas Day which was the intention but I wanted to continue on reading. I liked The Christmas Stocking, Dogs Are For Christmas and The Christmas Fairy more than the others. ...

    Oh, Katie... Katie?? That was just awful. Ridiculous storylines that would never happen in real life. Story #2 was SO awful that taking their cars instead of flying on magic carpets, seemed a bad choice. What age group was this aimed at? SO MANY TIMES I thought 'No girl in her right mi...
