From USA TODAY best-selling author Stacy Henrie comes five inspirational historical romance novellas.

Her Winter Suitor
If Callie doesn’t attract the interest of a suitor by the Patriarch Ball, she’ll be shipped off to England to find a husband. Unwilling to let that happen, Leo, the son of Callie’s favorite chocolatier, volunteers to pretend to be her secret admirer. In return, Callie will ensure his family’s shop provides chocolate favors for the ball—in hopes of keeping the shop from closing. But when their arrangement deepens into real feelings, the two must decide if a humble maker of chocolate and a wealthy heiress can find more than temporary happiness together.

An Unlikely Spring Courtship
Tempest and Bram are both eager to have the most successful mercantile in town. But there are only enough customers to support one store, and neither Tempest or Bram are willing to concede defeat. In spite of their initial competition, the two can’t help but admire the tenacity of the other and eventually they form a bond of friendship. When disaster strikes the town, the pair will have to choose what matters most—success in business or in following one’s heart.

A Summer for Love
When circumstances thwarted their young love, Wyatt and Loralee promised to meet in eight years if neither of them had found someone. This time Loralee isn’t returning to the beach resort as a lowly hotel maid, though—she’s become a renowned singer, performing across the country. Wyatt’s situation has also changed. He’s become a father to his orphaned niece and wishes to provide her with a stable home. But when Wyatt and Loralee see each other again, they begin to wonder if their love hasn’t lessened with time but has deepened instead into something lasting.

Romance in Autumn
Once the daughter of a servant, Phoebe is now an heiress with enough funds to provide herself and her mother with a home of their own. And she knows exactly which house she wants to buy—the mansion at the seaside where she and her mother once worked in the summers. However, James, the son of their former employer, has been tasked to sell the mansion at auction for a price much higher than Phoebe can likely afford. Still hopeful, she volunteers to help James return the neglected mansion to its former glory, and the two become good friends. Yet as the auction draws nearer, they will need to determine which dreams are worth pursuing and which are worth changing.

A Long Winter Kiss
Once the best of friends, with the promise of being something more, Samantha and Rex have seen little of each other since Rex returned home from the war. Samantha is still hurt over Rex eventually asking her not to write him anymore while he was away, and Rex is certain Samantha doesn’t deserve to be with a man who bears the emotional scars of a soldier. However, the two of them are thrown together again when Samantha’s father is unable to deliver his annual Christmas Eve gifts. As Samantha and Rex perform the task, the walls between them start to crumble, making them both hope in the miracles of the season.

My Review

TO EVERY LOVE A SEASON is a collection of five sweet romance novellas set in the historical United States at different times of the year.

Her Winter Suitor

This story is so sweet. Callie was this reserved character of the upper class who slowly came alive, at least when she was around Leo, who is a chocolatier and so of the working class. The biggest challenge to them being together was the difference in class and Callie's parents. Of course everything ends happily. The story wasn't my favorite of the collection as I think I just prefer more chemistry, tension, and lively characters.

An Unlikely Spring Courtship

I loved these characters! I loved how they meet and their banter. Tempest and Bram make a wonderful couple once they decide not to fight their attraction, although they're great fun before that. I enjoyed this story immensely!

A Summer for Love

This story reminded me quite a bit of the old movie An Affair to Remember. It's a story of old love and a promise to meet years later if they are both still unattached. I liked both Wyatt and Loralee. A quick and sweet read.

Romance in Autumn

This was a fun story. I liked the childhood memories an old house holds for Phoebe and James and how both of their dreams change as they get it ready to sell. It's a story of letting go and accepting new dreams.

A Long Winter Kiss

This was my favorite story of the collection.  I loved that Samantha and Rex were childhood best friends whose relationship grew to something more with a hopeful future. Then that future is interrupted by a war and Rex comes home a changed man. They have to work through their grief, particularly Rex, to give their future another chance.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was an enjoyable collection of sweet romance novellas. Fans of the author and of the genre will enjoy thiese.
