Shay Cunningham returns back to his parent’s home with his now fiancée, Whitney Scott, and her baby daughter Quinn. This is one of those books that simply gives the reader insight into the family dynamics of this large brood and traditions that mean so much. It was fun and crazy and pretty damn wonderful and I’m going to say that you really need to read Hail Mary in order to have full understanding of this story. I loved watching the individual moments between all the characters in this book, little vignettes that catch us up and gives us insight into the family dynamics. I loved watching Shay and Whitney find a little moment of private time. But most of all, I loved that despite the differences; despite the past this family was able to put it all aside and enjoy the Christmas holiday together. Sentimental yet a whole lot of fun and hilarity and one creepy little elf made Christmas with the Cunninghams a joy to read. ARC provided with no expectations.

    Awww this was a very cute, fast read. It was great to catch up with all things Cunningham! That family is a hoot and they all love each other so much. Shay and Whit are the cutest...he really does love her so much. I loved being able to catch up with them for the holidays. I love Julianna Marley's writing and this novella was great. I suggest if you have read the Mavericks series that you grab this book right up!

    Although this is a short read, it's long enough to cover the important bits and is a cute, sweet, festive read. if you fell in love with Shay and Whitney in Hail Mary this is a must read, we get more of the Cunningham family who are still as loud and funny as before. It was great to catch up with them all over the festive period, I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    "Christmas with the Cunninghams" is a lovely Christmas novella in The Mavericks series. This novella picks up almost immediately where Julianna Marley's "Hail Mary" novel ends. Shay just has asked Whitney to marry him and started the process to adopt baby Quinn. Shay, Whitney and Quinn have returned to his parent's house for another huge Cunningham Family holiday celebration. It's a full house. All of the Cunningham boys, their wives, Shay's nieces and nephews, and parents are all in attendance. "Christmas with the Cunninghams" is a lovely Christmas novella in The Mavericks series. This novella picks up almost immediately where Julianna Marley's "Hail Mary" novel ends. Shay just has asked Whitney to marry him and started the process to adopt baby Quinn. Shay, Whitney and Quinn have returned to his parent's house for another huge Cunningham Family holiday celebration. It's a full house. All of the Cunningham boys, their wives, Shay's nieces and nephews, and parents are all in attendance. As usual the children are running amok, Erin is pregnant and scary angry, and Shay keeps trying to sneak Quinn more cookies than Whitney allows. Shay and his brother are making strides in mending their relationship. Whitney's Southern manners have Shay contributing to a "no cussin'" jar in order to clean up his language. This kind of hinders Shay's ability to freely communicate with his foul mouthed family in their "native tongue". It also results in an impromptu spewing of expletives by Shay. Whitney's vocal enthusiasm also causes them to have to be creative as to where they can have sex. Especially since Whitney also thinks it's rude to have sex under Shay's parents' roof. Shay has a hysterical Elf On The Shelf phobia which manifests in a fabulous paranoia. There is also an wonderful nod to "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation". This novella is not meaty, nor does it have any conflict. It is a lovely, fun and sentimental picture of an ideal family Christmas. A truly quaint story. I'm giving "Christmas with the Cunninghams" 3 Lightning Bolts and a Small Craft Advisory. This novella was provided to me. Voluntarily read and reviewed without bias.

As with the previous book, it was well written and has a fun plot as Shay, an NFL football star, and Whitney, single mom and Wedding/Event planner, join his crazy family, allowing readers to catch up with all characters. Shay, Whitney, and Quinn are just as loveable and sweet as before, leaving you with such a heartwarming feeling whenever you read about the three of them. The book plays out just over a day but it’s perfect for a short glimpse into Shay and Whitney’s HEA and even manages to find time for a little rendezvous in a slightly unique place! Definitely recommend this short and fun Christmas read. *I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

    It was wonderful to catch up with Shay and Whitney with baby Quinn. It was a lovely Christmas story, which they go to spend with Shay’s large and lively family chaos. This is a Mavericks Novella, but concentrated on whole Cunningham Clan, which was set in West Virginia with plenty of snow surrounding them, adding to the atmosphere. This was a perfect holiday read, romance, love, loads of food and alcohol to keep warm and happy and a large happy family. What more is there? Read it and find out.

    This book is the definition of the perfect family Christmas! I loved the continuing story of Shay and Whitney and this story gave me a warm Christmas feeling. Everyone wishes their Family Christmases were as perfect as the Cunningham's! This was a sweet story continuing on from when Shay proposes to Whitney. My only comment is that it wasn't long enough! Lol it totally left me wanting more! I love these characters and I was sad to get to the end. I am excited for the next book already!

    Christmas with the Cunninghams can be read as a standalone novella, however, I highly recommend reading Hail Mary first.

Christmas with the Cunninghams was the perfect little story to keep us connected to a small family that is so easy to love. Every page just brought another smile to my face. While this was such a great little treat, I hated when it ended only because I still wasn't ready to say goodbye. I am sure that Julianna could write book after book about Shay and Whitney and I would still want to read them. If you've had the joy of meeting Shay and Whitney, grab this sweet little read and enjoy some extra time with them and the love that pours from the pages. If you haven't yet, grab a copy and see what you've been missing. Either way, you won't be disappointed.

As with the previous title it's well written, captivating and entertaining.

    A perfect holiday read filled with family and love. When it comes to Shay and Whitney you can't help but to love them. I simply love the Cunningham clan. This family is so full of life and love. You are in for a treat with this one. As long as you read Hail Mary first you will be all caught up on everything. I adore Julianna Marley and her way with words.

    Short and sweet. This is a great follow up to Shay and Whitney's story. It picks up right after their engagement as they go back to Shay's family for Christmas. I loved meeting his family in the first book and it was so good to reconnect with them. This was just a short holiday story to reconnect with some old friends and I loved it. Great read!

    One of the best Novellas i have read Shay and Whitney are the perfect couple. They were definitely meant for each other. Whitney certainly fit in right away with Shay's huge family and their acceptance of her and Quinn is awesome.
