HASH(0xa2dc0be8) out of 5 stars Don't Buy if you have all the Signet Christmas Regency anthologies Oct. 18 2008
By C. Turner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed when I discovered that all the stories in this book were published in previous Signet Regency Christmas anthologies. I have them all from the very beginning and re-read most of them every Christmas. I was excited when I saw this advertised. I checked the copyright date -- 2008. Well this particular combination may be 2008, but none of the individual stories are. If you have the whole collection skip this one because you already have them. If you didn't buy them all, or you didn't keep them and would like to re-read them then you might feel it would be worth it as they are good stories.

HASH(0xa373a9e4) out of 5 stars RIPPED OFF! Oct. 9 2008
By Karen Jones - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Okay, it's my fault for not reading the fine print. I read everything Carla Kelly writes and was very happy to see a Christmas anthology coming out. When I eagerly opened it, of course I realized it was a previously published novella from The Christmas Present. For now, I'm giving it a three star just because I feel ripped off. I still love Carla just as much, of course, but darn!

HASH(0xa2dc0df8) out of 5 stars Yet another rip off Oct. 21 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I LOVE Christmas anthologies and I also was excited to see that there might be a new one. I think they no longer bring those anthologies out anymore.
Anyway - a rip off. Old stories. I have them all and I read them every year. Know them all.
Dont cheat people why dont you just contract for new ones?

HASH(0xa420c0f0) out of 5 stars I agree! If stories are recycled, state it up front, and not in small print! Nov. 1 2008

I, too, am sick of having to look everywhere on a site to find if stories have been printed previously, especially when they turn out to be ones I've read before. (As I recall, when I first saw the paperback site months ago there was no mention about "previously published"; that fact was added later from the Kindle site.)

This is the only book I've ever returned to Amazon because even though the shipping cost me a good percent of the price, I was so angry that I didn't even want to have it around. Since Christmas short stories seem to be the most prone to "recycling", I plan to NOT buy any again without first seeing the book in person. Not a good way to sell books, Amazon!!

HASH(0xa420ce58) out of 5 stars Homespun Regency Christmas Aug. 29 2009
By K. J. Pierce - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A Homespun Regency Christmas is an anthology. I was hesitant to pick it up since I was burned* by the last anthology that I read. I really wanted to get in the Christmas spirit and hadn't been disappointed by a Signet Regency yet, so I bit the bullet. I STILL haven't been disappointed. =) Each story is around 70 pages. I'll review them in the order they appear in the book.

An Object of Charity by Carla Kelly - "A lonely naval hero assumes the responsibility if an orphaned brother and sister -- and discovers unexpected salvation in the young girl's giving heart." Captain Michael Lynch has lost this first mate, David Partlow, in a terrible accident at sea. Sally Partlow and her younger brother, Thomas (niece and nephew to David) have lost their father and have traveled from the Highlands of Scotland to Portsmouth, England to enter their Uncle David's care.

The Wexford Carol by Emma Jensen - "An enterprising woman throws a party to save her family home from being razed -- only to fall for the seemingly coldhearted man behind the demolition." Set in Ireland, this is the story of Elizabeth Fitzhollis, her family home and Captain Lord Rhys Edward-Jones. The premise is a bit convoluted, but it all comes together at the end. At the end there is a letter that was written before the actual story starts that explains the confusing bits.

Mistletoe and Folly by Sandra Heath - "A nobleman crosses paths with the young woman who years before broke his heart when she married a wealthier man." Another set in England. The story of Sir Richard Curzon and his past love Mrs Robert Beaumont (formerly Miss Diana Laverick). There is an element of intruige added to the mix in this story. This is the only one without a (current or former) captain of a ship. Still really interesting.

Upon a Midnight Clear by Amanda McCabe - "A moonlight encounter unexpectedly changes the lives of an emotionally scarred sea captain and the daughter of a freed slave." I'm not sure why, but this one was by far my favorite of the 4 (they are all good though). Maybe it's how much these people are so sad, so desperate for comfort. Both Antoinette Duvall and Mark Payne think they are settled and 'happy' in their lives, but really each needs something more. Something to, for lack of a better phrase, complete them.
