Mix of good and weaker Christmas stories

This is a collection of short stories. I wanted light entertainment to listen to while cleaning up the house for Christmas and it worked ok-ish. My personal impression: Some of these stories are lovely romantic stories. The first one, which you hear in the teaser, was one of the best. But other stories I found boring or, more often, the love story was unconvincing. It is difficult to set up a convincing love story if you only have as much as space as a short story, and some author just didn't succeed. Of the 12 stories, I really liked about 3 or 4, and really disliked 2, and the rest was ok entertainment.
Your taste may be different but there is a good chance that you will find some stories on this audio book that you love, and some that you don't like. The question is if you still find the audio book worth its prize if you know that you might skip or not enjoy some of the stories.
