Library Journal
★ 10/15/2013
Kelly's delightful collection presents four distinct Regency romance stories set during the Christmas season. All feature smart, strong heroines who still need to be rescued by the right man. In "The Christmas Ornament," old neighbors Lord Waverly and Sir Waldo conspire to bring their single, intellectual children together. In "Make a Joyful Noise," two young widows with children find they may be able to save each other. Returning from sea, Capt. Michael Lynch is in for a surprising holiday in "An Object of Charity," while the final tale trades England for Spain and centers on a woman hunting for Christopher Columbus's original documents along with a Spanish soldier trying to guide her to safety. VERDICT Charming, witty, and full of tender romance, this is a must read for fans of Regency romances.

    Short stories

    I honestly loved this book. Though I will say it was just mostly short stories that had short mentions about Christmas and it being that time of year. I'd say this is appropriate for 16+ year olds and it has clean romance in it.

    4 STARS

    This is a collection of four short novellas that are a romantic, entertaining and clean reads. I like the characters and wanted the stories to be longer.
    These are good if you just want a good short Christmas story. All four stand alone.
    They make you thankful for what we have and also how we can help each other this Christmas Season.
    The characters are good and you want things to work out for them all.
    The settings are Regency from England to Spain

    Wonderful!  Its hard to find a good collection of romantic Chris

    Wonderful! 
    Its hard to find a good collection of romantic Christmas stories. Carla Kelly's collection is an excellent one which is even rare.

    Scattered among these very different short stories, we have bluestockings, close families, poverty, humor,  PTSD, a pregnant heroine, shy hero all set in a historically enchanting Christmas setting. The steam level is low but the quality of the romance is high. 

    I was given this book for my honest review but I had actually read and enjoyed this collection before.
