November 9th 2016
If you like the inspirational historical romances of Deanne Gist and Lauraine Snelling, you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Stacy Henrie! With four novellas—one for each season of the year—you’ll find a heartwarming collection of couples from a simpler time in America who discover the redeeming powers of faith and love.
A Long Winter Kiss
As Samantha and Rex’s childhood friendship matured into young love, they promised their hearts to one another, even as Rex headed off to war. But their hope for a bright future was shattered when Rex succumbed to his belief that the horrors of war had made him a man no woman could love. Now he has returned, and Samantha must help Rex see that he still has much to give—and much more to gain—by replacing fear with faith and opening himself to love.
An Unlikely Spring Courtship
Tempest worked hard to secure her independence as a woman running her own mercantile, so when Bram has the audacity to open a competing shop in a town with only enough room for one, Tempest is driven to despair. And then to retaliation. But when tragedy strikes their community and threatens everything they both hold dear, will they be able to recognize that what they share is far more important than what separates them?
A Summer for Love
Loralee’s life has changed dramatically in the eight years since she’s last seen the resort town of Bayocean, but one thing that has never changed is her feelings for Wyatt, a man she promised to meet at the resort on a specific day if they were both still unattached. When Wyatt appears on that date, as hopeful and uncertain as Loralee, the two must see if an old and abiding love has outlasted the changes wrought by time—and begin to build a new life together.
Romance in Autumn
Phoebe and James grew up together but apart in the same beautiful mansion, he as the son of the owners, she as the daughter of a servant. In the years since, Phoebe’s fortunes have changed dramatically, and she carries the dream of one day owning the mansion that is still close to her heart. Until James—now a deeply compelling man—delivers the bad news that securing the purchase will be all but impossible. As Phoebe reluctantly relinquishes her dream, she will also look deep into her soul to learn that a true home might exist in her budding love for James.
My Review: 5 Stars
I love this author's writing style and loved how well the novellas came together into stories that felt complete. For as much as I complain about certain seasons (namely winter because I hate being freezing cold all of the time...and maybe autumn because right now, I'm pretty tired of raking leaves), I LOVE having seasons. There are things that I love about each and every one and having a sweet story set in each season is truly magical.
The holidays come alive with Samantha and Rex's second chance romance. The effects of the Civil War don't leave this couple unscathed and I enjoyed how everything played out. Their friendly competitions put a smile on my face, as did their later interactions.
Tempest and Bram engage in a fierce rivalry with competing businesses. I love how feisty and dedicated each of them are, but especially Tempest, who really lives up to her name. The way they come to awareness over their behaviors is delightful.
Loralee and Wyatt have a charming deal--if they're both unattached, they'll meet up and see if it's possible to kindle a romance. What better way to spend a summer? These two characters are adorable and their story warmed my heart as fast as the summertime sun.
Phoebe and James live opposite lives in the same world. This autumn romance shows that it just might be possible for love to conquer all--even social statuses. The hopeful current of this concluding novella is the perfect finish to a great collection.
If you want little snippets to brighten your day and take you through a year of weather, holidays, and love, try this book out!
Content: mild romance; very mild war violence.
