Book Description: Come explore Regency London with Carla Kelly! This collection features four stories that will warm your heart with Christmas cheer: "The Christmas Ornament," "Make a Joyful Noise," "An Object of Charity," and "The Three Kings." Filled with romance and a touch of humor, these stories are sure to find a place in your heart and remind you that Christmas is a time for love.
My thoughts: Anytime I have the opportunity to read a Carla Kelly book, I am thrilled to begin and finish the book. Carla has a way with words that pulls me into the story and keeps me entertained throughout.
This book of four short Christmas stories was no exception. I knew going in that I would find romance, humor, and great characters. I was not disappointed.
Each story is set during the regency period, each is unique. I liked the format of the book, it is easy to read one story when you don't have much reading time and you want to enjoy reading a story in a small amount of time. If you have more time, it is easy to transition to the next story and enjoy a longer reading time. I like that it is good for everyone.
One thing about this book, because it is make up of short stories, there isn't the character and plot development that I usually see in her books. I didn't feel connected to the characters, but I did like them.
This book is generally clean. There is some innuendo.
