When the Heart Brings You Home: A Connor Falls Christmas Collection is a three-novella series by Robin Maderich. Infused with the spirit of Christmas and covering themes of family and love, these stories are set in the fictional town of Connor Falls in Pennsylvania. In "Winter Light," Allie, a bookstore owner, finds herself in a complicated situation when a little girl named Lydia knocks on her shop window, looking for a way to reunite with her father. After Allie meets Lydia's father, the memory of a long-forgotten kiss springs up unexpectedly, leading to a burgeoning romance. "Light the Heart Home" follows Emma, who has just lost her job and returns to Connor Falls to get her life back on track. She reunites with her sister and encounters an old flame, who she had mistakenly believed was lost to her forever.
The Christmas season is a time for family gatherings and nostalgic reminiscences, and this contemporary romance novella collection captures its essence perfectly. When the Heart Brings You Home will pull at your heartstrings and leave you with a smile on your face. Robin Maderich's relatable and dynamic characters bring a wholesome vibe to the narrative that is delicious to consume. Readers will find them to be immensely likable and find it easy to root for them. Although each story traverses similar territory, the unique traits of the main characters make them distinct, adding to the richness of the stories. I thoroughly enjoyed all three novellas, and if you love to read contemporary romance, you will too.
