Publisher's Summary

In Kristi Ann Hunter's "Legacy of Love", Sarah Gooding never suspected returning a brooch to an elderly woman would lead to a job...and introduce her to the woman's grandson, a man far above her station. 

In Karen Witemeyer's "Gift of the Heart", widow Ruth Albright uses the family brooch as collateral for a loan from the local banker. But the more she comes to know the man behind the stern businessman, the more she hopes for a second chance at love. 

In Sarah Loudin Thomas' "A Shot at Love", Fleeta Brady's rough-and-tumble childhood means she prefers hunting to more feminine activities. She never expected her family's brooch might be how a fellow hunter turns her attention from competition to romance. 

In Becky Wade's "Because of You", Maddie Winslow has spent years in love with a man whose heart was already spoken for. When a church Christmas project brings them together and she stumbles upon an old family brooch, might it finally be her turn for love?

Nice Christmassy Book

I really liked the overall atmosphere of this book .. and I REALLY liked how connected are the stories through that Brooch the family heir loom .. here are my rating for the stories
Legacy of Love : the concept was ok I guess although I did like the grandmother story much more than the relationship between Sarah and Renold .. but it was sweet 3/5

Gift of the Heart : CUUUUUTTEEEE LOVED it soo much :D 5/5

A Shot At Love: so boring .. the relayionship didn't grab me at all 2/5

Because of You: it was nice reminded me of an indian movie ( Kuch Kuch Hota Hai ) but turns out I prefer a new relationship over a long crush coming true 3/5

I feel so christmassy now :)

The Narration was alright .. the third story wasn't that good in terms of narration

Just What I Love About Christmas Stories

All four authors used the central theme of the heirloom brooch mentioned in the title but, other than that, the stories were very different. I listened to the audiobook format and was pleased that each story was read by a different voice actor—for instance, the story set in England was read by a British actor, the one in the south was a believable southern accent. If you love romances that focus on characters and their developing love for each other, happy endings for all, and no heavy-breathing sex scenes, these are the type stories you will like. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Simply Lovely!

I very much enjoyed each novella in this collection.
The connection through the brooch was very unique. I love that it was passed from mother to daughter. True love really did come to those that wore it. The authors did a wonderful job connecting the stories yet keeping each a full story on its own.
I look forward to more from each of the authors!
I highly recommend this holiday collection!

Loved this experience!!!! It was wonderful!

I have never read an interwoven story with four writers before. It was lovely to travel the ages of love and see where the brooch took them! I have always read anything by Karen, but now it has exposed me to three other authors to check out!
