Happy Monday, Reader Friends!
I hope you had a great bookish weekend! Today I’m sharing my review of The Christmas Heirloom a great anthology where all the books connect! Plus, I’m offering a paperback giveaway (details below).
About the Book
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, a man far above her station.
In Karen Witemeyer’s “Gift of the Heart,” widow Ruth Albright uses the family brooch as collateral for a loan from the local banker. But the more she comes to know the man behind the stern businessman, the more she hopes for a second chance at love.
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 family’s brooch might be how a fellow hunter turns her attention from competition to romance.
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?
I adored Kristi Ann Hunter’s Legacy of Love. Of course, I love anything she writes and this novella is no different. Written in her same signature style, weaving romance in times of titles and intrigue, Ms. Hunter delivers a heartwarming tale.
So I admit I haven’t read Karen Witemeyer in a while. (Blame it on my TBR pile!) But Gift of the Heart reminded me why I enjoy her writing! This story was so well written and with a “unlikely” hero who more than earned the title. This one made me smile with delight.
I have never read Sarah Loudin Thomas so A Shot at Love was a nice introduction to a new author. The heroine is spunky and hesitant to love but the dashing hero wins her over.
And last was Becky Wade, one of my favorite contemporary authors. Because of You had that tone reminiscent of My Stubborn Heart. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale and was sad to see it end.
All in all, I enjoyed this generational tale of love and a heirloom that tied them together.
