Christmas bridal stories from some of the best authors - with a Texas theme.

As I've said before, I'm not usually a fan of short stories. I like a book that I can hang on to and continue the story for several days. I've come to realize the talent in a really good short story - one that still has that richness of tale. This book combines both. With four novellas by different authors that have characters that overlap, you get the best of each. The depth of these Christian Historical Romances and that connectiveness makes it feel more like you're reading a series. I highly recommend this!

Book Description...

"Spend Christmas in the Old West with six unconventional women who take on Texas-sized challenges—and unexpected romance. Bridget falls for a man opposed to her teaching Indian orphans. Polly is trying to hold her family together when her childhood love returns to town. Rugged rancher Charlsey is inexplicably attracted to a tenderfoot accountant. Vivian shuns marriage until meeting a nomadic photographer. Lacey’s cooking draws a quiet blacksmith out of his shell. Tracker Bessie Mae helps a ranger hunt down a villain."

"A Texas Christmas" By: Ramona K. Cecil, Lena Nelson Dooley,, Darlene Franklin, Pamela Griffin, Cathy Marie Hake, Kathleen Y'Barbo

What I liked about this novel...

Wow what a wonderful read. I will say I enjoyed each of these six 'Old West' Christmas stories with some interesting women who have some unexpected romances.

Who were these heroines? ....

"Here Cooks the Bride" by Cathy Marie Hake......Lacey...

"A Christmas Chronicle" by Pamela Griffin...Vivian

"To Hear Angels Sing" by Ramona Cecil...Bridget

"The Face of Mary" by Darlene Franklin...Polly

"Charlsey's Accountant"...Charlsey

"Plain Trouble" by Kathleen Y'Barbo...Bess Ames

These were six beautifully well written Christian old fashioned romances that were were from the Texas area during the 1880-1890's. I loved how each of the stories connected so well with each other...from Cut Corners, Texas, Pinewood Texas, Breading Texas, to Horsefly, Texas and all of these stories happened around Christmas time. All of these stories were very well done and I look forward to reading more from each of these authors. Would I recommend? YES!

I received a copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
