Mother's Day Magic: with Love rather caught me by surprise. I wasn't sure I would enjoy this anthology of relationships and love, all centered around the magical day that is Mother's Day - How surprised was I? This is a superb collection of stories by a number of talented authors. Of extra pleasure to me was the revelation that part of the profits from this collection would be donated to MS research.
Mother's Day Magic: With Love is a collection of twelve individual short stories and/or novellas. Every single one of the stories had something special about them and I wouldn't be overstating things to say that I enjoyed each and every one of them.
I really could go on and on about these stories. Twelve wonderful stories and not a single dud among them. It is rare that you read a compilation where every story connects and excites you - Mother's Day Magic is such a compilation. I would highly recommend this to all readers; it is five stars plus all the way. Excellent!

Fred Reeca, Blogger These stories are about strength to overcome obstacles lifethrows at you. The strength of family to get through these trials comes out ineach of these novellas. Family is the true backbone of these tales. And the motheris at the heart of every one. I loved the medley of stories and how each onewas different with the basic premise, family is everything. Every one of us in this world faces life and its challengesdifferently. It is tough to face these by ourselves. These novellas show thetrue meaning of family and the diversity to withstand all! I enjoyed these somuch, I cannot wait to delve into the other tales. Highly recommend! Review on reecaspieces.com/2016/04/26/
My favorite story of the bunch was Two Hearts Unspoken by Tamara Ferguson. The story was emotional, yet held my interest to the very end. This author has a talent for inventing believable characters and dilemmas.
Beth is the mom of an autistic son, and since I have some experience with autistic kids myself, I found the humor injected into this romance to be rather refreshing and touching, as well as accurate.
Zach is a scarred wounded warrior afraid to move forward with his life. But unlike Beth’s former boyfriend, he has no reticence at all about taking on her autistic son. What Zach is worried about is Beth’s reaction to the debilitating scarring from burns that he hides underneath his clothing.
With 12 different stories in this anthology, from a talented group of multi-award, winning and #1 bestselling authors, there’s an engaging story here for everyone!
This is a beautiful and hopeful collection of stories that I really enjoyed. I had a chance to read an ARC of The Light We Found by Q.D. Purdu and enjoyed it so much I couldn't wait to get to the rest of the collection. The Light We Found is a second chance love story that's sweet, unpredictable and very satisfying. I highly recommend!
I received a copy of this anthology as a gift for joining an email list. Many of my favorite authors offer up a selection of stories so good it will make you wish for full length novels. These are tales of a mother’s love, beautifully book marked at the beginning with Felt by the Heart, a story of a woman who has been knocked down by romance, but finds strength in her relationship with her children to take another chance and closed out with Forever Sunshine, a gorgeous tribute to a mother who showed her children that her determination to take on the world never took a back seat to motherhood.
It is hard to review an anthology like this as each selection offers so much; the remembrances of a life, loss, broken hearts, discovery, and new love all tied together with the bonds of motherhood. This is a five star - feel good read. Plus 10 % of the proceeds from this anthology will go to to the National MS Society.

The thirteen authors weave unique stories that range from lighthearted romances, to poignant memories, first love and second chances, friends to lovers, to dealing with real life issues ... but there is one heartwarming theme that runs through each story, a mother's unconditional love.
I couldn't help but get drawn into the twelve stories, they each had something special that tugged at my heartstrings and stirred my soul. So if you want to read a delightful collection of stories that will give you a warm fuzzy feeling and leave a smile on your face, then look no further, Mother's Day Magic ... With Love is a must read!

THE LOVE OF A MOTHER FOR HER CHILD What a beautiful and emotional story of Rachel, a mother who puts her children first, and herself last. Her son has already left the nest but her daughter Brooke is still at home, a teenager. Rachel questions the men that have been in her life, and the life of her children, why she has not found the HEA love that her parents have and her dear friends Allan and Rose had. The father to her children was an absentee man, and her second husband was a manipulator. Will she ever trust her heart and another man again? Sometimes, when you least expect it, you will meet someone special. The plot kept me captivated with this heartwarming story that is told in Rachel’s POV and Derek’s POV. The dialog is open, honest and at times raw and heartbreaking, but the message is beautiful and offers hope and a chance at a new beginning.
Felt by the Heart by Angela Ford Sometimes life leaves us beat and battered, struggling to pick up the crumbling pieces. To find our way to be whole again. Felt by the Heart is a story of just that. Rachel is learning how to accept that although her marriage has ended she is not a failure. Finding a way to start her life all over and strengthen the relationship with her children, but mainly her daughter. Derek has only made time in his life for work and that has been the cause behind his failed relationships. Up until this point he has been so busy with work he hadn't noticed something was missing. Together they form a friendship that needs work but they feel they need to heal them. Will they figure out that it is more than just a one way friendship or will they lose the connection they are forming?
There I sat … sad that I had read the last word of this anthology because my journey with the authors had ended. And what a journey it was! As I write this review I’m still thinking about that journey and the collective writings of each author’s words that left me with a renewed sense of warmth for the experience.
I’d have to say my favorite among them is ‘The Art of Forgiveness’ by Tamara Philip. Her story is a page turner expressed in such an emotional and intense manner that I did indeed feel that I was a part of the story, and in the end, had returned from a delightful excursion with the characters. This anthology is a must read that I absolutely, absolutely recommend.
