Four Festive and Heartwarming Romance Novellas That Celebrate the Magic of Christmas

Perfect for the Christmas season, four beloved authors bring their bestselling, award-winning talents to a multigenerational collection of romantic holiday novellas. In stories ranging from 1820s Regency England to present-day Washington state, readers will be treated to Christmas tales of an heirloom brooch passed from mother to daughter for almost two hundred years. Will the family legend claiming the brooch brings love to its recipient hold true for these women separated by the years but bonded together by the ties of family? 

In Kristi Ann Hunter's "Legacy of Love," Sarah Gooding never suspected returning a brooch to an elderly woman would lead to a job . . . and introduce her to the woman's grandson. While he may be far above her station, she can't help but notice that his desire to make this Christmas special for his grandmother matches her own.

In Karen Witemeyer's "Gift of the Heart," widow Ruth Fulbright uses the family brooch as collateral for a loan from a wealthy resort owner. But the more she comes to know the man behind the stern businessman, the more she hopes for a second chance at love as the holidays draw near.

In Sarah Loudin Thomas's "A Shot at Love," Fleeta Brady's rough-and-tumble childhood means she prefers hunting to more feminine activities. She never expected her mother's brooch might be how a fellow hunter turns her attention from competition to romance one December.

In Becky Wade's "Because of You," Maddie Winslow has spent years in love with a man whose heart was already spoken for. When a church Christmas project brings them together and she stumbles upon an old family brooch, might it finally be her turn for love?

My Thoughts

Christmas stories are.my.favorite! I absolutely love this time of year and what better way to immerse myself in the Holiday fervor than to read stories about Christmas? This collection of novellas is a beautiful compilation of a family's history and weaves through the generations.

Beginning in Regency England and ending in modern-day Washington State. Each of these are fun, short, Christmas romances filled with plenty of humor. Your heart will be thrilled as you dive into this book.

If you haven't read any of these author's books before, you will get a healthy taste of their style and voice. Make sure to check out the other stories in the series that these novellas are a part of. 

I received a complimentary copy of The Christmas Heirloom from the publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
