First off I would like to thank NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we can bring you this review.
Ok I know its past Christmas and this review is a little bit late, but in my excuse is that it was christmas and I wanted to spend it with my family.
Now this was a great little collection of christmas stories. Each author brought us back to 1800's England and helped us feel what it was like for those in the ton to celebrate christmastide.
Each story did have a couple of things in common, like the fact that each woman had a large dowery which brought around unwanted attention to them. They all fell for the least likely person and all became brides during the christmas time.
I truly enjoyed each and every story in this book and am confident you will as well.
I would definitely give this book and these stories a collective four kiss review.
Happy Reading... Adri
