I haved loved every book in the Jewel series so far and this one is no different. I enjoyed meeting Tony and Robin's son as I did all the characters in each book. You don't have to read the other books to appreciate this one but you'll be missing out on some great stories if you don't. Anyway this was a sweet Christian Christmas time love story that had a part inspired by an actual event. That was interesting. Also, I thought it was a great way to introduce the Virtue and Valore series which I a ...more

"Christmas Diamond" by Hallee Bridgeman was one of this author's Jewel Trilogy series. This was a quick read that was truly amazing and wonderful Christmas read with a 'blend of suspense and romance.' Be prepared for a bit of history and seeing another generation from the series in this short novella.. I really like the portrayal of this business world presen

Christmas Diamond is a short, but very sweet peek back into the Viscolli family. We get to follow TJ, son of Tony and Robin, and see if he gets his happily ever after with a woman named Faith. He meets her in an unexpected way on the beach. I won’t say more, but I recommend that fans of Hallee Bridgeman’s Jewel series pick up this novella for free on Kindle or Nook, as well as at other ebook retailers. It is definitely not necessary to have read the Jewel Series in order to understand what is go ...more

A cute story about coming over the pond at Christmas time. Faith is a pilot who flies a World War II plane that belonged to her grandmother. Tj's hobby is studying aspects of World War II, and knows a lot about her grandmother. Love blooms the more time they spend with each other, and when she goes back because her grandmother is in the hospital he goes with. Good read!!

This is my first glimpse into Hallee's writing and I am HOOKED! Christmas Diamond is everything a Christmas story should be. Romantic, cute, a side of adventure and pure heart from the author. There's nothing "cookie-cutter" about it and I LOVE that! I cannot wait to read more from Hallee.

Spending Christmas on the Florida Keys is different, and pilot Faith Green is surprised to find that she misses London's cold rain as she bakes on the sand. She is here to fly a vintage plane in an air show, honoring the skillful piloting her Grandmother did during WWII with the Women's Auxiliary Air Force in England.

After literally tripping over a man washed up on the beach, and reviving him from his near-fatal windsurfing accident, she discovers that not only has his father sponsored the air

This short story was fun because it tied in with the Virtues and Valor series that I really enjoyed. The parts about the plane and history were interesting. I wasn’t as interested in the romance. Thankfully, however, the romance was kept clean except for a couple kisses.
For some reason the story didn’t give me a Christmasy feeling like most Christmas books do that I read. So, even though this is set at Christmas time in Florida, I think I wouldn’t have minded reading it some other time

Not very Christmasy

An ok Novella. Not my favorite. A love story about a British pilot and a rich Italian. I think the author tried too hard to use British colloquialisms. As someone who lived there for 17 years and is married to a Brit they just stuck out. Also not very Christmasy in nature although it's set Christmas week. Sorry to be so hard just wish it was a little more fun for a Christmas read. Maybe you will like it though.

What a nice clean romance that expertly ties in Faith's family history that happened in WWII with TJ, a man she met in Florida.

Good, clean novella. I didn't connect as much with the main characters in this novella as I have in her other books, but I still enjoyed the book and getting to catch up with the Jewel Series family.

Quick romantic read. Since it's a novella, the romance goes a little fast, but let's be real: no faster than any good Halmark Christmas movie. Fun for the Christmas season.

Growing up in Virginia, where there are four distinct seasons, I struggled to imagine a warm, beach-themed, Christmas in Florida. Once I let the beach image go and let the story take over, I found I couldn’t put it down. You see I like history and I found the background story, (which was inspired by a real-life story), as engaging as the story’s romance. The main character, Faith, is a British pilot of a North American Na-16. She flies in air shows all over the world. Indeed Faith is flying her ...more
