Publisher’s Description:  The North Yorkshire moors are always a magical place, but they’re particularly enchanting at the holidays…especially if one gets to travel back in time to a Victorian Christmas. For Bronwyn Dale, it is the stuff of dreams. Fancy-dress balls, quirky small-town traditions, even that classic one-horse open sleigh, complete with jingle bells. There’s just the tiny problem of the Butterfly Effect. How does a time-traveler make a difference without disrupting the future forever?

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*

I liked this story.  It was a quick read and it featured Christmas in Victorian times.  You have to read the previous book to really get the full impact of this novella.  You could read it without reading book one and you’d get the drift, but it does make a better story if you know what is going on in the prior book.

This story doesn’t really have a plot – it’s just a quick story about Bronwyn and Williams first few months of married life.  With just coming home after a teaching stint, Bronwyn is tired and ready to relax, but William is so excited to share his life with her, he barely lets her catch her breath.  It’s a sweet romance at Christmas that didn’t take me long to read, but it was fun.  Oh, and just to put my two cents in – I don’t care how many blankets a person has piled on them, the cold WILL get to you when there is a blizzard and you are in an open sleigh.  Just sayin’.
