Love Through the Seasons by Tracie Peterson: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Bestselling author celebrates 30 years of writing with a collection of both old and new stories. 

 Four short contemporary romances from bestselling author Tracie Peterson take readers to the author's native state of Kansas. A single mother is braced for spring tornadoes and 
Stormy Weather when she encounters her son's scout troop leader. A student finds her King of Hearts while participating in a summer Renaissance festival, but she may lack queenly confidence. Autumn isn't just about the changing of the trees for a widow living with her mother and aunts on the family farm, it's all about Falling for Love. A wife faces Silent Nights during winter as her marriage begins to crumble at Christmastime.

Often called the "Queen of Historical Christian fiction", Tracie Peterson is an ECPA, CBA and USA Today best-selling author of over 120 books, most of those historical novels. Her work in historical fiction earned her the Life Time Achievement Award from American Christian Fiction Writers in 2011 and the Career Achievement Award in 2007 from Romantic Times, as well as multiple best book awards. Throughout her career, Tracie has also worked as a managing editor, speaker of various events and teacher of writing workshops. She was a co-founding member of the American Christian Fiction Writer's organization and has worked throughout her career to encourage new authors. Tracie, a Kansas native, now makes her home in the mountains of Montana with her husband of over 40 years.

Love Through the Seasons is a collection of love stories from Tracie Peterson with one story for each season (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter). They can be read all together, or here and there throughout the year to fit with the season of that story. 

Tracie Peterson is best known for historical fiction, but these stories are much more contemporary...and she did them wonderfully. With shorter stories such as these, it can too often feel like that stories are incomplete or rushed. While the timeline certainly may have been sped up more than what we might see in a full-length novel, I definitely feel like they were complete. I enjoyed the sweet romances, but also the messages of faith and family found within each story as well. Each story took about an hour or so to read, making them great for when you're wanting something brief but still full of heart. 

Overall, a good read and one that fans of Christian romance are sure to want to check out.
