A Birmingham Family Christmas (Brazen Brides Book 5) - Cheryl Bolen

A Birmingham Family Christmas by Cheryl Bolen Book starts out with other works by the author. Story starts with Annabelle and she was brought up with her father and grandfather. Emma, her cousin has been blessed over the years also. Annabelle is waiting for the man that hadn't requested to marry her after the Season. Even though this is a series book you are brought up to date with who is who from the start. Annabelle will accompany Emma and her husband to Camden Hall for the Christmas holiday. Story also follows others in the family. Adam is in charge of the bank and hosting the big family event and has invited him to join them. They had gone to school together. Love catching up with the others in the family as I have followed this series. Lots of fun and excitement, drama and the holidays. Spencer had learned women were not to be trusted and 11 years ago he had turned her down for marriage. Love how children put baskets together for those in need-so generous. Adults will help make toys for male children for the baskets. Loved hearing of the tools used to make the toys and the process of using the hand tools. Others are matchmaking Spencer and Annabelle but they each hold a secret. Love hearing how they decorate for the holiday, fresh greens! Injuries occur and feelings are hurt in the process... Amabelle feels like an outsider and Spencer is known as fourth Birmingham brother although he's not related. Misunderstandings from eleven years ago as the truth comes out. There is a lot of joy but their sister and mother may not make it in time for Christmas, they should have arrived by now... Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with summaries of some of them. Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.

Review For: A Birmingham Family Christmas
A Birmingham Family Christmas (Brazen Brides Book 5) - Cheryl Bolen

A Birmingham Family Christmas by Cheryl Bolen is Book Five in the "Brazen Brides" series. This is the story of Annabelle Lippencott and Spencer Woodruff. This Novella can easily be a standalone book if you choose to do so.
Annabelle is staying with her cousin Emma Birmingham for the holidays and finds that Spencer is there too. Annabelle and Spencer had been in love some years ago but each thought the other was the cause of their broken heart. Annabelle and Spencer start to learn that something else was at work that cause them to part.
This was a sweet second chance at love story with a Christmas theme in place.
Loved it!

Books I Read in October 2017
The Diamond Empire (A Diamonds Novel) - K'wan
Sing, Unburied, Sing: A Novel - Jesmyn Ward
Brazen - Katherine Longshore
The Longest Memory - Fred D'Aguiar
The Tragedy of Brady Sims (Vintage Contemporaries) - Ernest J. Gaines
The Nightingale - Kristin Hannah

I read 6 books in October and am pleasantly surprised. I thought I'd only read 2 or 3. Has that ever happened to you? My highly anticipated read was The Tragedy of Brady Sims by Earnest J. Gaines. It was also my biggest disappointment. I was not wowed by it and the interest I had for the build up in this short novellla wasn't and was what I thought it would be. The other shocker was Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward. I connected with only one of the characters (the son Jojo) and the story was a bit of multiple stories I'd read before. I didn't enjoy Salvage the Bones by her either. I think I stopped 75% through. I don't think her style of writing is for me. However, she is well regarded, loved and accoladed. 

 

The Nightingale and The Longest Memory were the "show stoppers" this month. These stories gutted me. Oh, the pain I felt. These two books I would highly recommend to anyone. It doesn't matter if you pick them up today, next month or years from now. Put them on your tbr or wishlist and read them! You won't regret it, I promise. I'm clearing out my YA shelves and have donated hundreds to date. This last purge I decided to keep some series that I started and loved, but didn't finish. Brazen (Royal Circle) is one of those I decided to keep. I had already read Guilt and Tarnish and enjoyed them. Brazen didn't disappoint. I do love historical fiction. Longshore wrote these in a style I could enjoy as well as her intended audience.

Great Historical Romance
Counterfeit Countess: Brazen Brides, Book 1 - Cheryl Bolen

Counterfeit Countess by Cheryl Bolen is a fantastic historical romance.  Ms Bolen has given us a well-written book.  The characters are phenomenal and perfect for this story.  Edward and Maggie's story is suspenseful, with plenty of drama, humor and sexy bits.  I enjoyed reading Counterfeit Countess and can't wait for my next book by the talented Cheryl Bolen.  Counterfeit Countess is book 1 of the Brazen Brides Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I received a copy of this book from BookFunnel.

Miss Hastings' Excellent London Adventure (Brazen Brides Book 4) - Cheryl Bolen

Miss Hastings' Excellent London Adventure by Cheryl Bolen
Although this is part of a series I was not left out in the dark at all.
This book starts out with Emma Hastings and she's on her way to meet her uncle so one day she will take over the business.
Problem is he never shows so she enters the tavern and asks where the West End is as she's not familiar with her surroundings.
They tell her and also that no woman should be out at night alone on the streets.
Story also follows Adam Birmingham and his brother Nick and other family members. Adam is drinking himself silly over the Italian Opera singer he was in love with that doesn't want me... he leaves a tavern, heading home. He meets Emma and he accompanies her to her uncles to find out he is not in.
She spends the night at Adam's house and he remembers why the uncle won't be answering the door. He takes her under his wing and they visit the solicitor to find out more details where she learns more information on family matters.
It's all so hopeless at this point you wonder how she will ever survive, alone and on her own.
This is a lot of action and what I really liked was that there is a huge mystery that Adam gets help from his brothers to help solve. Love how the brothers wives help her with fashion and make her feel welcome.
Love the romance, travel and dire circumstances that it all leads up to. Love the mystery ride as I took my husband on one last Saturday!
You'd not go wrong reading this book. I don't even have to know what the book is about to appreciate and enjoy Cheryl's books.
Received this copy from the author and this is my honest review.
