About the Author
Cathy Maxwell spends hours in front of her computer pondering the question, "Why do people fall in love?" It remains for her the great mystery of life and the secret to happiness. She lives in beautiful Virginia with children, horses, dogs, and cats.
A retreat leader and writing teacher, Lynne Hinton is the author of numerous novels including Pie Town, Wedding Cake, Christmas Cake, Friendship Cake, Hope Springs, and Forever Friends. She also writes a mystery series under the name Jackie Lynn. She lives in New Mexico.
Candis Terry was born and raised near the sunny beaches of Southern California and now makes her home on an Idaho farm. She's experienced life in such diverse ways as working in a Hollywood recording studio to chasing down wayward steers. Only one thing has remained the same: her passion for writing stories about relationships, the push-and-pull in the search for love, and the security one finds in their own happily-ever-after.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
This was an anthology that was a salute to the military. The three authors each wrote a story that had someone who was in the military or had served in the military at its core.
The stories were very different and my favorite was Home Sweet Home by Candis Terry. Least favorite was Letters From Pie Town by Lynne Hinton.
Home Sweet Home seemed most realistic to me in its approach. I loved how the townspeople worked together to surprise Aiden after he had come back from Afghanistan after losing his two best friends. Paige’s love for him had never waned since they were children together and he had felt the same way until he returned and felt broken by the war. Their rekindled romance was heartwarming and you felt you could be part of the town rallying around Aiden just from the feel good aura of the book. There was the requisite happily ever after and nice closure.
Letters from Pie Town didn’t reel me in since it was a series of letters written by the townspeople to their wounded soldier still in the hospital in Germany. The story was very one sided and I couldn’t embrace it. Also, the story ended without me realizing it was the end until I turned the page and saw the sneak peek of the next Pie Town story. The excerpt did add some closure but it really wasn’t enough and it was in the next book in the series.
The Bookish Miss Nelson was an enjoyable read and I liked the chemistry between Pippa and William as well as the adventures they got into together. There was a happily ever after and the author’s note gave nice closure.
I disliked that after each story there was an excerpt of another of the author’s books.Read more ›
The Bookish Miss Nelson by Cathy Maxwell
Captain William Duroy is commanded to escort Miss Pippa Nelson to Lisbon and then back to England. She usually follows her father wherever he goes acting as his hostess, however he recently left her at Wellington's headquarters as he went on a mission without instructions as to how long or what to do with her. So the general is making a decision, he does not want her there anymore and is punishing the captain by making him escort her.
Pippa is a headstrong young woman and has been following her father around for years, therefore does not like being pushed around. She is unhappy with the situation and let's everyone know how she feels. While traveling, Pippa makes a decision that puts her and William in danger. While trying to get back to safety, they end up doing something heroic and then fall in love. A smart, fun story of finding love in the most unusual places.
Letters from Pie Town by Lynne Hinton
Raymond Twinhorse is a lifelong citizen of Pie Town who was recently injured and is now in a hospital in Germany.Read more ›
What I didn't enjoy was Lynne Hinton's "Letters from Pie Town." The letters were engaging and well-written, but there's no story here. I kept waiting to turn the page and for the story to begin, but it didn't. These letters are a teaser; there is no story here unless you spend another $8.89 to purchase Ms. Hinton's WELCOME BACK TO PIE. I am extremely tired of publishers selling anthologies as complete, stand-alone stories only to purchase them and find out differently. I don't mind when the short story is part of another series, but I should be purchasing a complete story if I'm spending my hard-earned cash.
I also didn't enjoy the numerous excerpts located between each author's story; they were very distracting and interrupted the flow of the stories. I expect better from Avon Books!!
