"The Marriage Gift" by Tara Taylor Quinn gives a behind-the-scenes-look at For Love or Money 's heroine Janie's BFF Corrine and her maybe soon-to-be-ex Joe's relationship. If you've read FLOM, you'll remember the couple from all of the help and support they give the heroine; even if you haven't, Ms. Quinn manages to draw you into their world quickly, making you truly care about what happens to them in just a few pages. (And then, of course, totally teasing you into wanting to find out what will happen to Janie in her book!)
"The Sweetheart Tree" by Rula Sinara is a second-chance romance story, with a hero and heroine who suffered through a terrible tragedy that tore them apart forever. Or did it? Can a Thanksgiving together help them to heal?
Just as fabulous as the stories, each one is followed by a recipe from the author for something that would make a fabulous addition to your Thanksgiving table (or any day's, really!)--plus, there's pictures!
Altogether it's a win-win: short stories for a busy holiday season, delicious romances, and even yummier recipes. Who could possibly resist?
Rating: 4 stars / B+
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Amy Vastine's story "Snow Day Baby" reminded me why I enjoy her books! It’s cute and sweet with a bit of medical drama and a hunky doctor to keep things interesting. And speaking of interesting… the kiss? WHEW! Already fanning and we’re still in the first story.
"Wedding at Turkey Run" by Liz Flaherty is full of humor and fun characters! While emphasizing the importance of friends and family, it’s also tenderly romantic – with two relationships in the spotlight.
In "Her Thanksgiving Soldier", author Leigh Riker pairs a solider facing his own demons with a woman who refuses to fall again for a man in uniform. This one is heartwrenching in parts and heartwarming in others. Their history together has you rooting for them from the start, and the ending will have you smiling through tears.
Jennifer Snow‘s "Mr. Right All Along" had me forgetting to breathe half the time! The chemistry between longtime best friends Aiden and Kayla is palpable and electric and … agonizing lol. Agonizing because Aiden is head over heels for her and she doesn’t see it. Aigh! Just about every scene between them is full of sparks (on their part) and breath-holding (on my part) – I love it!
"Falling For the Cowboy" by Sophia Sasson is a love story between a Greek beauty business-type and a country boy. Lots of humor at poor Elena’s expense (the roses!) make this a fun one, but there are plenty of sweet moments as well. A cute love story with some fantastic secondary characters.
In "The Marriage Gift", Tara Taylor Quinn brings us a tender story of a young married couple on their last legs. For all that several of these stories made me laugh, this one made me cry. Such a poignant look at marriage – its ups and downs and all the in-betweens – and the power of love.
"Heart of a Hero" by Pamela Tracy throws a bit of mystery and intrigue into the mix with a town full of secrets and a man trying to discover the truth. Despite being a short story, the mystery is really well done and entertaining. Moments of humor and of course romance help this story appeal to a variety of readers too!
Karen Rock‘s "Thankful For You" perfectly showcases her ability to write romance that steals your ability to breathe. It also has some pretty adorable children, a hunky fireman, and a spunky heroine. Along with all of the above, there’s a little bit of suspense (not mystery, more action) and a really heartwarming subplot.
In Carol Ross' "Autumn at Jasper Lake", a wounded soul of a dog brings together two people who know a thing or two about soul wounds. Some emotional topics are touched on in this story, but Ross treats them with grace and sensitivity. The romance is sweet and built on mutual respect, and you just want to hug all the dogs.
"The Firefighter's Promise" by Kate James is one of the most tender stories in the bunch, and it frequently had me melting as I read. Not just from the swoony things that Ryan the hunky firefighter says and does but because he's just so sweet and so is his family - and Jax hasn't had that in her life ever before. Watching her blossom under their care is a very special part of this whole collection.
Cari Lynn Webb's "Wedding of Her Dreams" is hilarious in parts and swoonilicous in others and sometimes both at the same time. The dogs are a hoot! Ruthie reminds me of myself, and Matt is just oh-so-yummy!!!
In The Sweetheart Tree by Rula Sinara, we are treated to a second chance romance with another heartwarming subplot. A couple of them actually – as well as some heartwrenchingly tough and important topics. Topping it off like the whipped cream on pumpkin pie is a thread that had the history geek in me grinning like a fool.
Melinda Curtis‘ Married By Thanksgiving is a story ideal for a fun Hallmark movie. An impossible situation turns impossibly romantic, albeit not without a few bumps along the way. The romance is delicious, and I loved how Clinton stands up for Brenda and gives her the confidence she needs.
Bottom Line: Great stories by an all-star cast of authors will put you instantly in the mood for Thanksgiving. The recipes included after each one will make sure you’re ready for the big day! Love, romance, family, friendship, even a little mystery and a lot of tenderness – you are in for all this and so much more. An excellent collection without a weak story in the bunch!
