Review by Camellia
LOVE AND SILVER BELLS is a contemporary romance anthology to be
enjoyed at any season – not just at Christmas time. It gives the
reader hope for "bruised and confused hearts" and for love-hungry
bodies and souls. The stories in this book bring joy!
"Act II, Scene 1" is a second chance story. Act I of Leah's life
ended sadly as did Dalton Bream's. Leah, a medical transcriber and
one-time actress, meets Dalton, a renovation architect, at the
community theater as rehearsals for "A Christmas Carol" are in
Dalton, even though disillusioned by a long-gone, faithless fiancé,
reaches out to Leah who is still fragile from the death of her
husband. Together they find contentment and rightness but not before
overcoming some obstacles.
"A Commander Under the Tree" by Billie Warren Chai is about two
mature people who have experienced traumatic emotional upheavals.
But each of them recognizes a special connection when they meet.
Neither Commander Eric Scott nor engineer Fiona Ross expect to find
someone with whom they want to make a permanent commitment.
The secondary characters play important roles in the unfolding of
this story about romantic love and about never-ending friendships.
Fiona's little son Joey and his friend Morgan are a joy. This is fun
"A Home for Christmas" by Diane Davis White brings Jud Brown, a
rancher, and Olivia Strong, a feed storeowner, together first as
adversaries. Hardworking Olivia struggles to take care of her three
little brothers, Adam, Cabel, and Hunter with diminishing funds
while Jud struggles to keep the family ranch operating in the black
while taking care of his grandfather who has Alzheimer's.
Even though, some of the happenings stretch the imagination, the
romantic and family love makes this a story to remember. One can
almost see and feel the joy of Adam, Cabel, and Hunter as they enjoy
Christmas at the ranch.
"A Soldier's Heart" by Rebecca Andrews is full of intrigue and
action. Lt. Priscilla Ashby, a decorated pilot and sniper, who
suffers with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, is assigned to protect
Gov. Mason Taggart, the son of U.S. President. Mason is in grave
danger until a leak in the inner circle can be found and eliminated.
Both Priscilla and Mason are forced into a situation out of their
comfort zones. Isolated and not happy with the roles they must play,
they strike sparks off each other – sparks that give life to love.
Theirs is a tumultuous, edgy love story that touches the emotions on
so many levels. GOOD READING!
