HOME FOR CHRISTMAS : HISTORICAL CHRISTIAN ROMANCE COLLECTION

There is nothing better than romance unless it's faith-filled romance plus Christmas! Join these multi-published, award-winning and best-selling historical authors as they take you on a joy-filled, old-fashioned sleigh ride full of sweet, happily-ever-after romances, the tried-and-true kind that honor God, love, romance and timeless Christmas spirit!

My Review:

A wonderful collection of Christmas novellas that will definitely put you in the holiday spirit. I think what struck me the most is how each story immediately grabbed my attention. I was hooked on the very first page and each author followed through with plenty of action and romance to keep me captivated right to the end. The kind of satisfying read you get from a full length novel only in a shorter format.

A Daddy For Christmas by Janet Dean A heartwarming love story set in 1930 about a man who wants the chance to be a father, a child who wants the chance at having a daddy and the woman who chances everything by loving them both. Dean pulled at my heartstrings as I watched Rafe and Tess struggle to find their way. A stirring tale of restitution and hope.

Second Chance Christmas by Ruth Logan Herne In Levi's own words, "Life stopped being simple about the time Nellie Bausch sashayed into his shop." And that pretty much sums up this novella. Nellie arrives in Second Chance, South Dakota determined to start fresh. She's an independent woman who isn't afraid to voice her opinion. Just the kind of woman Levi isn't looking for and that makes the best kind of romance. :-)

All Aboard : Destination Christmas by Pam Hillman Katie is torn between her love of ranch life and her aunt's determination to find her better prospects in the city. When her trip to Portland is cut short by an accident, Katie's faced with an uncertain future -- and a handsome cowboy who is determined to keep her safe. Lots of tension and laughter and few sweet moments under the mistletoe.

The Best Gift of All by Julie Lessman A wonderful glimpse into a wild and whacky O'Conner Christmas. While this is mostly Lizzie and Brady's story, there's still some side-slapping scenes with all the O'Connor sisters and their various offspring. Love the humour and chaos. But there's a serious side to this novella as well as Lizzie and Brady struggle with the pressures of their expanding family. Lessman delivers faith and romance with her trademark passion for both.

    1. Really great reads. Love that each author was able to bring the same depth in character and setting in these novellas as in a full-length novel. That's talent. Good luck, Karen.
