Whilst there is a running thread of Lady Winterson, she and her butler dont make much of an appearance until the last book, which means the all authors can concentrate on their own story. Apart from a reference in The Last First Kiss to the ageing of Lady Winterson, there’s little difference in the stories that would reflect that changing of the years. Each story is different, as befitsdifferent writers, and covers 16 year old innocents to dowager mothers of 4, all finding love at the ball.
However, between reading them and writing the review, I have already forgotten much about them. So in summary: the stories are light, and befit a quick holiday themed read to wind down the reading year
