An Ivy Hill Christmas

Historical Romance
224 Pages
Published September 1, 2020 by Bethany House Publishers

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?

My Review

If you need a historical romance that will put you in the Christmas Spirit, look no further!

An Ivy Hill Christmas is like a warm fuzzy hug that we all need this 2020 holiday season. I love a little bit of unexpected romance and the back and forth between two people who aren’t sure that they’re looking for love, or at least aren’t ready to admit it. This troupe adds depth and creates interest in the characters and their story. Which is exactly what happens here with our mysterious playboy turned sweetheart, Mr. Richard Brockwell. I was so happy to get lost in Ivy Hill and be charmed by the world Julie Klassen creates. Any fan of historical romance will love this heartwarming Christmas story. This was my first read in the Ivy Hill series and I can’t wait to catch up the others and visit Ivy Hill again.
