Picture Perfect Love by Melissa McClone: 3 stars. This story is about a second chance love story between Jenna and Ashton. Ashton betrayed Jenna by wrongly accusing her of ruining his political career and as consequence, ruining her reputation and dumping her at the altar. When he discovers the truth and apologizes for all he's done wrong, he finds himself wanting a second chance at her love. Does he deserve it?
This story was okay, at best. I found myself, wondering through most of the story, does Ashton deserve a second chance at Jenna's love? Would I give him a second chance? At first, it was no. I wouldn't. Jenna shouldn't. As the story went on, like Jenna, I could see changes in Ashton's character and saw that he cared about her. But then, he didn't trust her again when she told him the truth on a different matter. In the end, Jenna gives Ashton a third chance once he gives a beautiful speech about love, making mistakes and committing himself to her based on unconditional love, trust and faith founded in God. It was cute. If you take it as it is, it is a nice happy ending. But...
I almost would have preferred if Jenna accepted his apology, but told him they weren't meant for each other. Because true love, unconditional love, always protects and always trusts and believes the best out of people. Ashton didn't do this with Jenna twice. One time too many. I mean, love is an action verb and Ashton failed to take action when it came to love. I know the message of this novella is that love is messy (which is a good concept), but shouldn't love also be true? If it were me, I would be hesitant to give him a second chance in love. Definitely, not a third. If he couldn't do it when they were dating, it wouldn't get better in marriage. Forgive him, yes I would. But, I don't think this love story was swoon-worthy or something I would want to have for myself. I also wouldn't want to marry into a family who would mistreat someone so badly by wreaking havoc on someone's life and not consider apologizing for the damage done until years later. His family, Ashton's sister and father, lacked full responsibility for their impertinent actions until they were caught or wanted something from Jenna. Ugh.
On a side note, Jenna was my favorite character. I related to her from the beginning, loved her transformation from her adversity and admired her strength.
I Hope You Dance by Robin Lee Hatcher: 3 stars. I loved the title of this story, first. But, I was expecting more than what I got from this story. It is a cute story but it's more exposition and thought-based than action and conflict, which is a better drive for the story. For that reason, it wasn't a quick read-through for me, it was more start and stop.
Love on a Deadline by Kathryn Springer: 5 stars. By far, my favorite out of this summer collection. I did read a "September Bride" by Kathryn Springer in last year's Autumn Brides but I definitely want to read more from her because I enjoy her writing significantly. It's about Mackenzie Davis, a reporter who returns to her hometown Red Leaf after her father's heart attack. She finds herself writing an article about the wedding of her high school nemesis. In the process of preparing her article, she crosses paths with her high school crush, Ethan Channing, who is also the brother of the bride and her new neighbor.
This story is so charming. The chemistry between the leads is adorable and the pacing was great. I kept on wanting to read the next chapter that I finished this book in one sitting. This is story is about finding where we belong and listening to what God wants for us and not what we want for ourselves. The characters are well-developed and lovely, which makes you not want to leave Red Leaf all the more. I loved it.
"I Hope You Dance" by Robin Lee Hatcher: This is a really quick read. If you have read other books in the Kings Meadow series of books, you will notice some familiar people. (I'm sure that also helps with backstory for them as well) I liked Skye and Grant and watching their interactions. The romance moves along really quickly, but as this is a novella, you kind of expect that. The characters themselves even are concerned about how fast it is moving.
"Love on a Deadline" by Kathryn Springer: I enjoyed Mac and Ethan find their place and what they really needed in life. I was pleasantly surprised to recognize characters from a book I had reviewed two years ago ("A September Bride" from the first 'Year of Weddings' novella series). It doesn't matter if you didn't read it, though, for your enjoyment of this story. This was a cute, quick story. Again, it helps that the characters had a past together for the pace of the romance.
