The Heirloom Brides Collection: Treasured Items Bring Couples Together in Four Historical RomancesLucie's Review:

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue...

Betsy Lowell experiences a series of unfortunate surprises, when her grandfather falls of his horse leaving him seriously injured, followed by the news that they lost her family's farm, and everything that they own has been sold. Betsy get's a job at the diner, and things start to look up when Stuart and his mother who dine at the diner quite frequently, befriend her and help her in unexpected ways.

Wren Cromwell and Tate Kennady were childhood friends, but when Tate left to cut ice, she never heard from him in the four years that he was gone, now he's shown up on her doorstep, and she isn't sure what to think. To his credit Tate doesn't give up easy, but will he be able to win back Wren, and prove to her that he is the one for her?

I loved how they got to know each other again, and how kind Tate was to her twin brothers, enlisting them to help him with a special project.

After rescuing a baby coyote, Clara Frazier convinces her father to let her keep it, naming it Rowdy. Clara and her father have recently moved t the farm from the city, and so when a tree falls on her father, breaking his leg, he sends her to the neighboring farm to ask if they can hire some help to keep the farm running while her father recovers. Mrs. Klassen says that she cannot hire one of her sons, but she may borrow one, Titus Klassen volunteers to help the Fraziers out, and also manages to catch Clara's eye. Will this 'something borrowed' perhaps have a mind to stay?

I loved how in Something Blue the story revisits Cripple Creek and the Sinclair Sisters, including Miss Hattie's boarding house, where Marla is hoping to stay, she grew up in Cripple Creek, but she's been away studying to be a nurse. but she's disappointed to find that instead of the hospital she's delegated to home visits. But her disappoint fades fast as she finds her place, and helps to care for those around her.

All of the stories were well done and well written, I loved how the characters didn't give up in the face of obstacles. One of my favorites was Something New because of the humor. I loved how both Marla and Betsy were strong heroines, Betsy keeps going despite all that she has lost, and Marla returns to the town where she hurt so many people and shows them that she has changed, and wants to help them now. And Something Borrowed was so clever! A fantastic read!
