When the Heart Brings You Home, A Connor Falls Christmas Collection, is a heartwarming collection of three holiday novellas, all set in the small town of Connor Falls, Pennsylvania during the Christmas season, and each a story of family and love with a touch of romance.

Winter Light – a troubled little girl brings the Christmas Spirit back to her struggling single father and the woman he once kissed many years ago.

Light the Heart Home – two sisters with secrets reunite at Christmas, prodding old wounds and finding healing love.

Home for the Holidays – all Susan Hardwick wants is to find her way back home.

Comfort. Joy. Romance. Welcome to Connor Falls.

When the Heart Brings you Home is a collection of three novellas. They are all set in Connor Falls around Christmas time. There is a common theme of family, finding your way back home and following your heart. There is romance, but it's not just about that. I liked them all, but each in a different way. It's a lovely book to read around Christmas time. 

Allie still hasn't decorated the display windows at the family bookstore. Pondering what to do, she is startled by the little girl Lydia, who is out there all alone. Soon she figures out she ran from home and her father is the guy she once had a crush on. He is a single father to a little girl who is very hurt by her mother who just took off. Lydia brings them together, but with so much going on in their life, none are eager to jump into something new. There is nothing like a little bit of Christmas spirit to help you find your HEA.

Emma is driving back to the town she grew up in, to visit her sister. It's been a while since she has seen her and with her life imploding she is happy to escape reality for a little bit. Through the holiday season, they find love and do a great deal of healing. There is a lovely second-chance romance, but my favourite was the focus on sisters and how they find their happiness in life.

Susan is visiting her parents. It's been a while since she has been back home. As she helps her mother with the event she has been planning and gets to know the cute photographer, she slowly finds her way back to Connor Falls, and finds a place she can call home. It's a lovely story, focused on family and togetherness with a little bit of romance.
