I was looking for an easy read to get me through a long plane ride and this anthology looked promising with its variety of different love stories. My plane ride was more than six hours long, but because I was so immersed into this book my travelling time was a breeze! I loved all the stories in this collection, some of my absolute favorites was “Providence,” “Holiday on the Homefront” and “Turkish Delight.” I ended this book with a big smile on my face and can’t wait until these authors come out with another collection!
Season of Surprises filled me with hope, uncontrollable giggles, and an all around good time. Just as I read one tale and thought, you can't top this, they did. Briliant tales of romance and fun with characters not without their problems just like any person but attaining their heart's wish. They were all so much fun to read it's hard to pick a favorite. So I picked three out of the group, though all the stories are wonderful. My three favorites were "Enticed by a Laird" by Gerri Brousseau, Her Frog Prince Holiday by Cara Marsi, and Holiday Handbag Extravanganza by Vicki Batman. Why these three? I have a soft spot for anything with a Scottish air and have loved Gerri's Brousseau's historical romances in the past and this one delivers too. I don't want to give it away but it's fun and unexpected. Just loved it. Love comes to unexpected people is all I'll say. Her Frog Holiday is magical. I loved the forays into the art world and Manhattan high society but also the comfortable cooking at home part and thought the hero was to die for. Holiday Handbag Extravaganza really shined for me. What do you do when the school bully grows up and comes into your shop? What do you do when her cute brother comes into your shop later? I'll let you imagine. I don't like giving out spoilers but wow. All the books within Seasons of Surprise are the fun, enjoyable, and will make you smile all over.
Season of Surprises, make for a very enjoyable read. The writers of this delightful anthology kept me interested and engaged as I turned the pages of each of their stories. The beyond romantic Providence, by Bobbi Lerman was my particular favorite, making me wish time travel was possible. A wonderful addition to anyone’s holiday reading list.
Bought this when I saw it was coming on for the wife. She liked the other Season of Box Sets and I figured it would be good reading for her on some long drives we have coming up. I am not usually one for romance (my wife will attest to this) but this book actually caught, and kept, my interest surprisingly. I was most strongly drawn into the Holiday on the Home Front story. I am a sucker for the WW2 era , and I thought the author did a good job of being true to that time period. The relationship between Betty and Van was believable, and the outlying characters and small town setting added a lot of dimension to their story-I felt like I was watching a Turner Classic Movie while reading. I also really enjoyed Providence, with it's historical aspects... perhaps I am a historical romance fan afterall, though I won't admit it anywhere but here. Anyway, great writing. I know my wife will enjoy these stories just as much as I did, if not more.
I love a good holiday story and Season of Surprises doesn’t disappoint. Each of the eight stories were fun, fast paced reads that by the end put a smile on my face. My favorite was a close tie between Providence, by Bobbi Lerman. I loved the story of Amy Beale who travels back o0ne hundred years to meet her destiny and Kristen Drew’s. sweet World War II romance between her tenacious heroine Betty, and Van, her soldier boy gone off to war. The recipes at the end were terrific; I plan to try them all. If you like romance, I highly recommend Season of Surprises.
So many anthologies out these days, it's not easy to chose one. But you can't go wrong with this one. I've read work by some of these authors before. Cara Marsi is one author I've read before. I love her Frog Prince story. I can always count on her to present a story that's engaging and well edited, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading every one of these stories. Good job, ladies!
I'm not a big reader, but I had a few friends and family members recommend this collection to me. As I started to read it, I noticed I couldn't put it down. Especially when I got to the book, A Day for Destiny; by Jane Gale. This book, I thought was amazing! It was written so wonderfully that I couldn't stop reading it. I found it extremely relatable and kept me wanting more. I was sad there was only four chapters, I wish there was more :) I cat wait to read more of their different collections
This was a great anthology. Eight love stories that are told during the backdrop of the holiday season, each tale is different and has something to offer. My favorite has to be Turkish Delight. If you like heroines who are funny and don't need to be saved, then you'll enjoy this story. It got bonus points because it was set in an exotic location with mouth watering descriptions of the cuisine.
