Eight Romantic Novellas Filled with Love, Laughter, and Happily Ever After

Authors: Pepper Basham, Christina Coryell, Heather Gray, Elizabeth Maddrey, Jessica R. Patch, Kristy Phillips, Laurie Tomlinson, & Marion Ueckermann

This is such a fun collection of contemporary Christian stories. Several of the authors in this collection are new to me, it was great to discover new-to-me authors.  I look forward to reading more from them.

The first book in this collection, “Second Impressions” by Pepper Basham really hits a home run and sets the tone for the entire set. You’ll fall in love with the dynamic characters Nora (a Jane Austen fan) and Ethan Keller.  This fun story will have you laughing out loud.

The second story, “Mowed Over” by Christina Coryell begins with heart-stopping action. The unique characters bring humor and fun to the pages of this story.

I’m sure most have a friend like Lia in the third story “An Informal Affair” by Heather Gray. Her characters are realistic and fun.  I could almost imagine sitting down to coffee with Lia and swapping stories.

In “Hearts Restored” by Elizabeth Maddrey you will meet Deidre a feisty, independent woman who isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty. Why ask for help, when I am perfectly capable of doing it on my own?!  Past heartbreak as brought her here.  Will meeting the dashing, local handyman change her heart?

Enjoy snuggling with your furry friend for “Unleashing Love” by Jessica R. Patch. Emma Kate, professional dog walker gets more than she planned for when she agrees to dog sit for a near stranger.  More than dog leashes will tangle in this fun story full of heart.

Right from the start Meri, our new Nanny runs into a surprise in “A (nearly) Normal Nanny” by Krista Phillips. Meri likes to plan, but plans go astray when chaos walks thru the door.  Meri quickly discovers that some things you just can’t plan for, and “normal” isn’t all that common.

A second chance to reconnect in “That’s when I knew” by Laurie Tomlinson. This tender story of childhood sweethearts Chelsea & Nick will keep you smiling.   With characters so real that you’ll feel like you are in the story and part of the action.

The last story in the collection, “A Time to Laugh” by Marion Ueckermann is a gentle reminder that you are never too old for the unexpected surprises. Life-long dreams can be met, and nothing is impossible.

This collection is the perfect set to have when looking for a light-hearted, fun collection of Christian romance stories filled with laughter and excitement.
