Sleigh Bells Ring: Four Contemporary Romance Novellas by Sandra D. Bricker, Barbara J. Scott, Lynette Sowell, and Lenora Worth ~ Review

Sleigh Bells Ring
Lucie's Review:

The four Tucker sisters inherit a ranch, upon the death of their father, but it will need a lot of work to be able to sell it.

In All I Want for Christmas Joanna Tucker returns to her childhood home after the death of her father, and as she is going though the boxes she remembers the good times they had together as a family. So she invites her sisters down to have one last Christmas together on the ranch.

Jed Weatherly manages the horse farm nearby, and offers Joanna help to make her Christmas dreams come true.

I liked how Jed helps Joanna and how they get to know each other again as they work on the ranch together. Joanna also remembers her mother, and her strong faith.

In Her Old Kentucky Home  Bella surprises Joanna by coming home from Chicago, even though she had initially resisted when Joanna invited her to come.

Bella brings her boyfriend, David, with her, he also has his roots in Kentucky and has been thinking of returning but isn't sure what Bella will think of it.

Home in Kentucky Bella and David are able to spend more time together than in the city, where they were both constantly on the go for their jobs. As going through her father's things, she reads some of his letters and they help her to face her faith and to trust.

I'll Be Home for Christmas  finds Sophie Tucker stranded off road in a snowstorm, and Matt Weatherly, Jed's cousin, comes to her rescue.

Matt and Sophie were childhood friends, and they are able to pick up right where they left off, even though they haven't seen each other in years. Matt has loved Sophie for years, but he didn't want to get in the way of her dreams to become a veterinarian.

I loved seeing Matt and Sophie reconnect after so many years, as they come to understand what led to them losing touch with each other, and realizing what they still have in time for Christmas.

Please Come Home for Christmas Amy is the oldest of the sisters, and she has a son, Timothy, and she is doing the best that she can to keep them floating since the death of her husband. Amy could really use the money from the sale of the farm.

The first person that Amy meets is Dan Wentworth, the man who wants to buy the farm and turn it into smaller high end acreages. Amy feels the responsibility of being the oldest, so she grills Dan with questions about his plans for the property, he happily obliges as it let's him get to know her better and join in their Christmas activities. I also like that he connects with Timothy as well, teaching him how to ride.

Overall, a lovely and highly enjoyable collection about a family that welcomes many new members, and chapters of life into the New Year. I liked how the sisters reconnect and come together again to celebrate what's important.
