The Christmas Heirloom
by Karen Witemeyer, Kristi Ann Hunter, Sarah Loudin Thomas, and Becky Wade
From the back cover:
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?
About the authors:
Four sweet stories of new-found love, tied together by a family heirloom.
Whether you enjoy historical or contemporary romances, you’re bound to enjoy all four of these stories! From Regency England to modern America, each tale brings an era to life with its lovable characters and sweet love story.
If you’ve read these authors previously, you already know their wonderful abilities as writers. However, if you haven’t had the opportunity to read their works yet, this is a great way to try out any that are new to you.
I’m not sure that I could pick a favorite from among the four. While I tend to prefer historical romance, I thoroughly enjoyed each story in this collection. If you’re looking for a few good Christmas stories this season, don’t miss The Christmas Heirloom!
