Just because she'll be alone this Christmas, is no reason for Beth Manning to feel sorry for herself. A busy nurse with plenty of friends, she knows she can keep occupied and have a good holiday. But when a tiny package containing an antique locket arrives, she tumbles into a century-old mystery. Is it intended for her, or for a relation of the same name, who lived four generations ago? Why does the image of the young soldier, inside, tug so hard at her heartstrings?

When Tommy Rafferty accompanies his injured friend to the hospital, he's not thinking about romance. Yet as soon as he meets nurse Beth, his heart gets its own ideas. He's sure he wants to see her again. But what a strange coincidence, that the tiny package he found and mailed just days ago, while cleaning out a relative's property should have been addressed to this woman he's just met. And what about the dreams of past battles he's been having, that hint at promises and sacrifice?

Is it possible for two lovers parted a century ago to be reunited in time for Christmas? In the blossoming of a new love, will an old promise be kept?

Another gem from multi-talented Laura Strickland. Beth is a little down to be spending her Christmas without family and at work. Beth and Thomas meet when Thomas' friend injures himself in a construction accident and Beth is the ER nurse who tends to his friend.Their connection is instant. It's almost like they've met before. Have they? I couldn't put down this well written sweet holiday love story with a hint of magic until I'd finished it. I'll read anythings this author writes.

Confusing Set-Up But Good Story I feel a little confused by this title. The subtitle states that this is an anthology, but when I look at the table of contents on Amazon, I only see one story by one author. Indeed, on the book page itself, only one author is shown. The top review mentioned that this was an anthology with stories by three writers, but I didn't see any evidence of that on the book page or in the book itself. Okay, on to the story. In general, I thought this short story was well written. While there is a bit of a data dump at the beginning, at least it is done somewhat artfully. I thought that the historical letter was beautifully written. I enjoyed the little mystery at the core of the story and the ties that go forward and back in time. The main characters are believable and relatable, and I thought the scope of the story fit the length of it. A well-done, quick read. I recieved a free copy of this story, but that did not affect my review.

A Promise Kept: Christmas Locket Anthology is a wonderful holiday romance. The premise of this story is about a love that was delayed a hundred years before. Will the promise be kept now that the locket has been found? This is a sweet, emotional short story that captivated me as I turned the pages and went back in time. I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

A well written story of two people who are brought together when he takes his friend to the hospital. Tommy Rafferty had found package in his uncles things when he was cleaning up and took a chance and mailed it to Elizabeth/ Beth Manning. Then the feelings and dreams start happening for them both. This story had me reaching for a Kleenex as I read, what a story! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
