Disclosure of Material Connection: I received an e-book edition of this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
Christian fiction is often bland and uninteresting. Cherry Blossom Capers has interesting characters, and interesting action to keep the reader involved. All the characters suffer trials and stumbles in their day-to-day lives as they attempt to live according to their beliefs. Possibly the four different authors lend the characters such separate personalities that they it gives the story more depth and perhaps one author might achieve. Interesting book, written with an interesting format. I really enjoyed it.

The first story is State Secrets by Lynette Sowell, and is Tara Whitley and Jack Courtland's romance mystery. The setting...the White House. Tara is a Chef, and Jack is an FBI agent. They have a past, and haven't seen each other since they were both living in Paris. Now there is a noted threat at the White House and Jack is assigned. When you think you have it all figured out...guess again!
The second story is Dying for Love by Cara C. Putman, and is the story of two opposing attorneys Ciara Turner and Daniel Evans. They discover the body of their mentor Judge together, and now want justice. You wonder if they can trust each other enough to work through their problems. A real sweet story!
The third story is Buried Deception by Gina Conroy, and is Samantha Steele's and her two children Alex and Callie story. There are a couple of suitors and the setting is Mount Vernon Estates...wow!! There are some missing artifacts and forgeries added to the mystery here. You wonder if she will end up with Nick Porter or Cody Sparks, there is also murder, kidnappings and break ins.
The fourth story is called Coffee, Tea and Danger by Frances Devine and is Susan Holland and Vince Martinelli romance, if they will accept it. This story is quite a mystery, when Susan's Uncle dies and leaves her the family mansion, it seems someone want to do her in? Vince lost is beloved wife several years ago, and even though he is attracted to Susan, isn't sure he wants to find romance again. Very short, but delightful story!Read more ›
Every single one of the novellas in this collection was a great read. With characters that cross over into every one of the other books, the authors stayed true to the characters their co-writers had also created.
"Lovers and Lawbreakers" is the tagline for the novel and its a great description of Cherry Blossom Capers. It includes great setting, good characters and talented authors that put it all together. My favorite stories though would have to be by Cara Putman and Gina Conroy (debut author). It's a quick read, one novella can be read in about a short amount of time, but the authors didn't scrimp on characterization or the importance of story.
A fun and well-written collection!
