From the Publisher:
Christmas is the time for love, and twelve historical women are on their way to the altar, whether they know it or not. In settings across the heartland of America, readers will experience heartfelt gifts, old-fashioned Christmas traditions, sweet romance, and inspiring faith from twelve acclaimed Christian authors.


This is another anthology collection that I received an advanced copy through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.  I’ll admit, I was totally sucked in by the cover of this book.  It was pretty and anytime I see historical romance I tend to jump.

I read through quite a bit of Christmas books this year and this was one of my favorite new Christmas collections! Maybe it’s the anthology collection (again – just simple and sweet and easy to read) or maybe that I loved the stories so much, but these were just right up my alley and perfect for me.  I love that I can just pick up the book and read a whole short story in an hour. I really enjoyed each story and I loved that each brides story was written by a different author and had a different tone.  I was introduced to some new great Christian romance authors through this book. This book is a perfect companion on a cold afternoon or evening when wrapped up in a quilt and hot chocolate.

Again – the other day I was browsing the book at Walmart and I happened to see this one!  Since I received an advanced copy I loved taking a look through the real copy of this book.  I think this book would make a perfect gift if you have a book lover on your list. (you can order it on Amazon here)  Or, if you are like me, you can just add it to your library too.  This book will be making it to our shelves this year.  I loved it.  

Historical Romance your thing?  Christian romance?  Anthologies?  Heart-warming Christmas stories?  This book is all of these things!

Final Score:

This post contains affiliated links.  If you purchase through Amazon I receive a small payment, but regardless of where you purchase this book I still loved it!
