"The British Brides Collection" features a variety of different stories by different authors. These are like novellas, each complete within itself. Some of the stories share the thread of a masquerade mask that is owned by different characters in the novellas. The novellas appear in chronological order. The Christian message is overt in these novels, but not in a way that would come across as offensive to most Christian readers.

I enjoyed the stories overall, although I liked some more than others. Each story had a different and interesting twist, and the settings varied. I especially enjoyed the story about the rare book library (A Treasure Worth Keeping) and the one about the apple orchard (Apple of His Eye).. A few of the stories needed a more complete ending, as I felt they left the reader hanging. An epilogue or postscript would have wrapped things up more completely. Readers who enjoy romantic historical fiction should find this collection worthy of their time. Each story can be read in one sitting.

I received this book from the publisher and from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own. ( )
