A Season of Love: A Christmas Anthology by Carla Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received from publisher to review.
Genre: Regency Christmas Anthology
Book Description: At Christmastime, love is just a wish away! Join master romance writer Carla Kelly in this joyful celebration of the most wonderful time of the year. Set in regency England, these Christmas tales will take you from dangerous adventures on snowy roads to cozy little cottages, filled with holiday mischief. Five fun stories in one book!
My thoughts: I consider myself to be a huge Carla Kelly fan and I have read many of her books, I have yet to get through them all. I appreciate her honesty in a story. She has an amazing way with words and I have yet to read one of her books that I didn't thoroughly enjoy.
This is a collection of short stories told around the Christmas Season. All of the stories have been printed before, but I was surprised that I haven't read most of them. That surprised me, because, I read everything of hers that I can get my hands on.
This anthology follows the pattern that Carla uses in her books. The couples are not the uppercrust, but the everyday people you would find in Regency England. They are the workers, the humble, or those who have fallen from grace. The stories are full of humor, laughter, and service. She brings clarity to the time period and makes the time period more fascinating to me.
If you have read some, but not all, and do not mind re-reading stories, this would be a great book to add to your collection.
