Review: Meet Me Under the Kissing Bough

by Josi S. Kilpack, Anneka R. Walker, & Sarah L. McConkie

This was a sweet and fun collection of clean Regency novellas! I had not read any of the authors in this collection before and am happy to have found all three of them. Each novella contained a story where it seemed unlikely that the hero and heroine would be able to work things out and actually end up together for a variety of reasons. I appreciated that all of the stories contained scenes at Christmas, including a kissing bough, yet they were all very different plots.

I could feel the pain of loss and the uncertainty of new love that Deborah battled in Meet Me Under the Kissing Bough. Julia and Esmond were so perfect for each other in Healing Hearts for the Holidays, yet the anger and hurt that Julia’s father carried was hard to overcome. And in A Christmas Correspondence, Lady Caroline was not at all a likable character for much of book, however, her awakening and journey to being a better person and finding love ended up being a very sweet tale.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.



We wish you a merry Christmas and a happily ever after! This special holiday historical romance anthology featuring three heartwarming novellas proves that no matter the obstacles, ’tis the season for love.

Meet Me under the Kissing Bough
by Josi S. Kilpack
Deborah Winfrey hasn’t had the heart to host a holiday party since her husband’s death. But this Christmas, it’s time to move forward. The festivities bring renewed life to her home, and the attentions of two very different men promise a chance at new love.

Healing Hearts for the Holidays
by Anneka R. Walker
Julia Hunt is strictly forbidden from associating with the family in the nearby manor—including the handsome younger son, Esmond, who quickly steals her heart. With Christmas around the corner, an old bundle of hidden love letters may be the key to her own happily ever after.

A Christmas Correspondence
by Sarah L. McConkie
In this novella inspired by the timeless tale A Christmas Carol, John Charleston finds himself on an unexpected journey in the company of the insufferable Lady Caroline Morleigh. But the magic of the season has a way of softening even the hardest of hearts.
