More About the Author

Sarah Pekkanen is the internationally-bestselling author of the novels THINGS YOU WON'T SAY, CATCHING AIR, THE BEST OF US, THESE GIRLS, SKIPPING A BEAT and THE OPPOSITE OF ME. Please find her on Facebook and twitter @sarahpekkanen!

BIO: Sarah is the mother of three boys, which explains why she wrote part of her novel at Chuck E. Cheese. Seriously. Sarah penned her first book, Miscellaneous Tales and Poems, at the age of 10. When publishers failed to jump upon this literary masterpiece (hey, all the poems rhymed!) Sarah followed up by sending them a sternly-worded letter on Raggedy Ann stationery. Sarah still has that letter, and carries it to New York every time she has meetings with her publisher, as a reminder that dreams do come true. At least some dreams - Brad Pitt has yet to show up on her doorstep wearing nothing but a toolbelt and asking if she needs anything fixed. So maybe it's only G-rated dreams that come true.

Sarah Pekkanen tells tales you feel a part of. Love, Accidentally presents a love story that many have been a party to. Is Ilsa really the girl Grif wants to be with, or is she stepping into a rebound role from a first love that might not be finished. I loved this story. Sarah establishes characters that feel fresh yet familiar. She is a beautiful crafter of words. Wonderful short story Sarah!

Be warned, this is a very short story and the rest is simply ads for more books. A total waste of a dollar. the story is cliche and the characters are weak.

The author's previous story ALL IS BRIGHT continues in the new short story LOVE, ACCIDENTALLY. But this story is told from Griffin's new fiance Ilsa's point of view. It begins with Isla and Griffin meeting by chance when his dog is injured. Within months, the couple grow close and are engaged. During a visit home to Chicago, Isla meets Griffin's parents and discover his ex-girlfriend Elise is still close with the family. Now Isla wonders whether she's the rebound girl or whether falling in love was an accident after all.

Women can connect with Ilsa's points of view on love, loss, family and relationships of the past. Sarah Pekkanen has a knack for writing that draws you into the character's lives. I would love for the author to either continue this short story series or write a full novel with these characters.

As a bonus, this eBook includes excerpts from Sarah Pekkanen's other novels. Download for a quick, heartwarming read for the holidays. It will only cost you $.99!

I adore e-short stories! Sarah is a wonderful author (I just discovered with her new book "The Best of Us" (a 5 star), which I read first, so diving into reading her other previous books. (I usually start with new ones which pull me into the author and then start backwards).

Being in the online media world, front covers are a big draw as well as reading works of my favorite authors---especially with e-books, as the crisp colors are so appealing since you do not have the typical print front cover to view. Love Accidently has a feel good front cover and e-stories are very short you can start at midnight, get teased and a "preview" of what is to come, plus they are inexpensive.

The story grabs you from the beginning at the setting of a sidewalk café, Ilsa Brown sees a dog get hit in a car accident, and since she is a vet, runs to the scene and this is where she meets Griff, the dog's owner (of course the meeting lasts and turns into a relationship-having cancelled on the date she was originally meeting).

All is well; however, when traveling to meet his wonderful parents in Chicago, she discovers Grif's old girlfriend (a since kindergarten love-worst kind). She discovers she must learn more about this connection prior to walking down the aisle with her new love. Be sure and read "All is Bright" another e-short story with the girlfriend's perspective, and some of same characters

The characters were weak, the story was worthless, not only that, it never had an ending. All of a sudden you are in the next stupid story. Very frustrating. Guess you have to learn this Amazon game the hard way. Be more careful when you select multiple samples. Don't forget to check the price again before you buy. Many times it is much more than it was when you added it to your sample list. Watch for the number of pages your selection has too!

Second short story in the series of three. I found it interesting and I want to read the third one too. Enjoyed the simplicity and choice of words used. Very mature way of dealing with feelings.

I was really excited to read this story. I'd heard good things about the author, and I thought .99 seemed like great value for a short story. The description said it was approximately 94 pages.

I'm giving the story itself 3 stars because I was enjoying it...but when I turned the page, ready to read more...it was over. The ending wasn't really an ending. Which left me clicking, and searching, thinking that surely there must be more. I looked down and I was only at 23% progress on the Kindle.
Now, I understand putting an excerpt at the back of the book. BUT when 3/4 of the book is advertising another book, that's just not right. I even went back to the book description on Amazon to see if there was some sort of warning. Nothing. (I should have read the reviews)

Like I said, I'm giving the story 3 stars, but the fact that it was packaged so poorly and in such a sneaky way...1 star.
I would like to read more by this author, but for now, it's left a bad taste in my mouth.
