Just by the author names on the front cover, a savvy reader is going to know they are in for a spectacular treat with this sweet collection of love stories. And for the not-yet-familiar reader, they are sure to discover their new favorite historical romance authors.
Each novella in this four book collection takes place in the quaint little town of Dry Gulch, Texas. One would not think love would be prone to blossom in such a place, but one matchmaker is not about to let love slip these heroes and heroines by.
Each story is unique and special to the author’s talents and voice. For fans of the Archers from previous full length fiction, readers get the chance to read Neill’s love story. His and Clara’s was definitely my favorite and I could have easily read an entire length book about these two.
One of the things I’ve never been in love with about novellas is the story line feels rushed or put-on because of the story word count. But I loved this collection. Each story did justice to their characters and covered a good bit of ground for having so little to work with. And there is a fun little “twist” to the last story as we finally meet who has been setting all our characters up.
From beginning to end, a pleasurable collection of stories that will warm and soothe the most romantic of hearts.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
