Star of Wonder by Crystal Caudill
Can Celestia convince Aldrich to take a chance on their love when he will be moving across the ocean?
An engaging read with likable characters, filled with adventure and romance on a steamer's maiden voyage. I really liked the strong themes of faith in this Christmas novella, as well as the realistic relationship caught between friend and more than friends. There is mystery, action, and humor in this transatlantic romance.
Beauty Bright by Cara Putnam
2 generations later Monuments Man Charles Wiese finds himself working alongside Lillian Thorsen to restore the works of art to their original owners as Christmas time nears.
Rich in history this book does an excellent job of bringing to life the dismal aftermath of the war on Germany. Likable characters, and rich in history. I loved the family connection in these stories, of the "Wiese Men."
Perfect Light by Angela Ruth Strong
Set in the present day, newly divorced and pregnant single mom, Lacey Foster is the even planner in charge of putting together a winter wonderland of activities for local millionaire essential oils mogul Brendon Wise's Christmas festival. Will she let her past keep her from a second chance at love?
One of my favorite stories in the collection, I loved the unconventional timing of the relationship, as well as the strong themes of faith throughout, pointing to Christ as the true reason for the season, and as Savior. There was great interaction and humor in this modern day rom-com, and I loved Brendon's big heart for others.
Overall, a wonderful novella collection with stories of finding love and having faith through three generations of Wiese men.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
