    062 - {Second Chance at Love} - Once Upon A Christmas Eve

    ~ This episode originally aired December 2019 ~
    Join us this week for a relisten of last year's Christmas episode, because it's that special time of year where you spend time with loved ones...or with a family you happen to come across when your carriage breaks down in a snowstorm with Grandma inside! Even if you’re like our hero Adam and not that into Christmas, it’s hard not to find joy from an almost-kiss while hunting down holly for the Christmas Ball. Or better yet - from a bit of action under the stairs while everyone else is occupied with parlor games! Miss Sarah St. John is about to learn that the best-made plans don’t always come to be - sometimes you can try to push away any and all rakes and a snowstorm will just blow a silver-tongued charmer into your home! Elizabeth Hoyt’s Once Upon a Christmas Eve is a festive novella that seems just right for a bit of holiday reading by the fire. **Spoilers all the way!**

Cozily Delightful

Kelsey and Zoe absolutely nail regency romance for the next generation. Somehow they’ve made the granny-ish genre seem fresh.

A Regebcy Romance Gem!

I don’t even remember how I came across this podcast, but I am so happy I did. I read regency romance novels constantly and am so happy to find a podcast that loves them as much as me. Finally, I don't just have myself and my dog to talk to about them!

Awesome!

I love this podcast! I accidently found this as I had Lasik done so I had to find something to to kill time while lying about. I love historical romance books, I have read 1 book a day since April 2018 & I was dying when I couldn't read anything after laser surgery. Please keep this up. And I have discovered so many books through Kelsey & Zoey. Thanks girls!
