This novella is the first in the Heirloom Bride Collection. The stories are (adorably) called Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. Over the next few days I want to put mini reviews up for each of these.
In Something Old, Betsey is forced to find a job to pay off her Pops's bills and support herself. Stuart is the storekeeper's son, and the two have been frenemies since childhood. Now Stuart has come into possession of the watch that Betsey has been promised as a wedding legacy. Clocking in (that was a weird term to use. Whatever...) at a little more than 100 pages, I was shocked at how complete this story was. I didn't feel rushed or that anything was missing. The characters were incredibly well developed and just plain awesome, especially considering the very limited space. I loved Something Old, and can't wait to finish the rhyme! So far this collection is getting 5 stars.
