Richard Brockwell, the younger son of Ivy Hill's most prominent family, hasn't been home for Christmas in years. He prefers to live in the London townhouse, far away from Brockwell Court, the old family secret that haunts him, and the shadows of his past mistakes. But then his mother threatens to stop funding his carefree life -- unless he comes home for Christmas. Out of options, he sets out for Ivy Hill, planning to be back on a coach bound for London and his unencumbered bachelor life as soon as the festivities are over. But Christmas in the country presents unforeseen surprises, including encounters with an orphaned apprentice, the first love he disappointed years ago, and Arabella Awdry, a young lady who is far more appealing than he recalled... and determined to have nothing to do with him. Will Christmastime in Ivy Hill, with its village charm, kissing boughs, joyous songs, and divine hope, work its magic in his heart... and hers as well?

An Ivy Hill Christmas by Julie Klassen is a Tales from Ivy Hill novella. Richard Brockwell is being coerced into to returning to Ivy Hill for Christmas. If he doesn’t show up his mother will cut off his money. He plans to only stay until the holidays are over. Arabella Awdry has heard all the stories about Richard’s escapades; so, she doesn’t trust him. Can he convince her that he has changed? This is a return to the charming English village of Ivy Hill. I liked being able to re-connect with all the characters from the other books. I loved the cover! It sure has a classic Christmas feel to it. The Ivy Hill series puts you in mind of a Jane Austen script. I feel that Ms. Austen and Ms. Klassen would have been best friends! It was so refreshing to be able to experience an English Christmas with all the old-world traditions. This was a very heart-warming story with the undertone that anyone who wants to can change.

I received this book from the author for my honest review.
