Waiting for the Post by Esther Hatch
Now that Harrison Chase has finally made his fortune as a working man, he will risk it all to save his factory workers from starvation. In the middle of his charge to reverse the Corn Laws, his housekeeper helpfully mails a letter she finds languishing amongst his things. A six-year-old love letter. With no other choice, he rushes back to his childhood home on Christine Stone’s estate. If he can’t get his hands on that letter before she does, Christine will discover what a pitiful and pretentious fool he had been. The one thing he hadn’t counted on was the mail being delayed. Now Harrison must decide which is worse—waiting with Christine as he not-so-slowly falls back in love with her, or leaving, knowing once she reads his letter he can never return.

A Ring of Gold by Nichole Van
Viola Brodure longs for something more from her life. So when that something more arrives in the form of a letter from the renowned Highland Poet, Ethan Penn-Leith, she seizes her chance. After all, Mr. Penn-Leith merits every swoon-worthy adjective Viola can muster. What woman wouldn’t want to be in her shoes? But after journeying to Scotland and meeting the poet himself, Viola faces a difficult question: What happens if you don’t want the thing you thought you did?

A Rose by Any Other Name by Annette Lyon
As an orphan whose only home has been the Foundling Hospital, Rose is tasked to work in the fine houses of Bloomsbury. She knows her duty—take care of the family upstairs and never forget her place. But her traitorous heart won’t follow the rules, and she falls in love with Oliver Withey, a man far above her station. Though she feels like she’s found a home in Oliver’s arms, his mother has other plans for her oldest son—and marrying a servant isn’t one of them. She’ll do anything to keep Rose and Oliver apart, including making a devil’s bargain that ensures they’ll never see each other again. When a mysterious old woman appears, she seems to have answers to Rose’s past. Could those long-held secrets hold the key to the future with Oliver that Rose longs for?

    What a sweet book this was. The fun characters of Charlotte and Harry worked really well together. Waiting for their letters could have been pure drudgery. But their fun banter and playfulness, made it enjoyable and endearing.

    What are lovely story this is. Viola is a literary novelist from England who wants to meet the highland poet, Ethan Penn-Leiths. Little does she know what a wonderful catch his brother Malcolm would be. Just because everyone else thinks a match would be perfect. Doesn’t account for the chemistry between to people. One thing I did notice, for good or bad, is the sister Amelia kind of dropped off about the middle of the book.

    Another wonderful story. I thought the story was very engaging. That made me think a little bit about the story of Little Orphan Annie. I love the characters of Rose and Oliver and their true love for one another. I also thought it would be fun to hear more or the story of Penelope and Jon.
    The whole anthology was well written and well worth reading. Each story is short so you are able to read one in a quite afternoon!

    Sweet second chance romance. Likable main characters with fun banter. Probably my favorite of the three stories.

    A Ring of Gold by Nichole Van
    A story with a feminist vein. I love stories that allow women of the time period to step beyond their prescribed roles in society. Malcolm really did understand Viola and was an advocate for her beyond what her father did. Her father did assist her in being an author but didn’t really go as far as Viola needed to really be herself. Malcolm wanted her to be her true self. I really liked him.

    A Rose by Any Other Name by Annette Lyon
    You could sum this up by calling it a Cinderella story. It really felt like a fairy tale by the end. Getting to their happily ever after required some pretty fantastical events that you’d likely only find in a fairy tale.

    No sex, language or violence
