Review - These four short romantic stories are light hearted enough to get the reader into the Christmas spirit. Set in the 19th century they fall under the historical romance genre. I don't mind romance but this is a bit Mills and Boon for my liking. However, each story is well written with good characterisations and scene setting. If you want a bit of seasonal romance then this book of short stories may suit your needs. 4*
