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!
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.
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.
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!
"Mother's Day Magic" captained by Angela Ford is a book box by known and emerging talents, a box to give mothers or to read if you are one. Part of the proceeds from this book box go to an MS charity, which makes the book almost irresistible. But the clincher for me with this book box was the inclusion as story number five of "Maddie's Project" by Anna Celeste Burke, an award-winning, bestselling author whom I find to be a voice that resonates with many, and for good reason. The Maddie of the title is Laura's mother, and something happens one May in Maddie's Project, to Maddie and her family, which will stay in your heart for a long, long time.
As I read each of these books, I found myself taking in how I felt after reading the book and by the end of the series of books realized that I love these books. They deal with different types of women and the kind of mothers they are and the lifetime they lived in.
I can only hope that my daughter's see me as a good mother that tried to do my best for them.
Mother's Day Magic With Love by Angela Ford. I received a complimentary copy of Felt by the Heart by Angela Ford in exchange for my honest review. After two divorces all Rachel can think of is her two beautiful kids. This is such a loving great story that touches your heart of a mother's love for her kids, Brooke and Tyler. The story pull at your heart, but gives you that awesome feeling of being a mom. Every mom should get this book set if only for this story it is well worth it.
What a wonderful group of authors writing wonderfully sweet and tender stories about Mothers for mothers day. I was touched by all of the stories in this anthology but two stood out for me. Maddie's Project by Anna Celeste Burke a remarkable writer what an insightful and sweet story and Forever Sunshine by two very talented authors Cary Allen Stone and Tyler Hosea about a very amazing mother and her children.
