What can I say about this? Other than I absolutely loved it! The book is made up of four Regency era stories set at Christmas.
Christmas at Falstone Castle by Sarah M. Eden
I loved the characters in this and since reading have found there are previous books including Adam the Duke of Kielder which I now want to read. Adam is grumpy but loves his family fiercely and that showed throughout. I can’t wait to read to read more about him.
This was such an easy read and truly heart warming!
The Heart of Christmas by Anita Stansfield
The story of Addie, a lady who has found herself stuck in a job she hates but is soon rewarded with an excellent opportunity. On meeting her new employer and family Addie goes out of her way to inject some happiness in to the home of those who have suffered a great loss. But the family aren’t the only ones to benefit from her hard work! Such a sweet story.
’Tis the Season to Be Daring by Esther Hatch
This was definitely my favourite of the four! The characters are fabulous especially Lord Hawthorne. This one made me laugh and I really warmed to the story. Miss Davenport attempts to escape the London season or more precisely her mother’s attempts to find her husband. Turns out she’s perfectly capable of doing that herself.
The Christmas Dress by Joanna Barker
Again another with sweet characters especially Nell. I was surprised this one had one of those characters you can’t help but dislike but she gets her come uppance!
All of them are perfect for a quick read. I read the whole thing at once snuggled on the sofa with a blanket. I’d definitely like to read more like this especially at Christmas time.
