Sweetest in the Gale: Even while focusing on the loss of a loved one (whether a partner or biological family), Ms. Dade managed to make this a lovely, uplifting and ultimately, emotionally satisfying romance between two colleagues that started this anthology off right.
Unraveled: Previously released novella that I thoroughly enjoyed before (but on re-read loved even more) also featuring two colleagues who, on the surface, are polar opposites, but still manages to find love through murder dioramas.
Cover Me: Longtime friends dive into a marriage of convenience when the heroine discovers a lump in her breast, this is the novella that I hesitated in reading because cancer but happy I did because it’s so very, very, sweet, hopeful, and sexily satisfying.
The Bottom Line: All of these novellas will stay with me in varying ways, and I’m so happy I read them. Bonus - I read the first few pages of Spoiler Alert, and now it’ll be even harder NOT to crack that book open right away. If you’re looking for an author who can give you fat rep with sensitivity, as well as romance with heat AND heart, look no further - I don’t hesitate to recommend Ms. Dade’s books.
I already read and reviewed Unraveled in He’s Come Undone but there’s an added ending in this book that you should check out! And honestly, it’s a beautiful story about a tightly wound math teacher and the new free-spirit art teacher he falls for. Bonus, there’s murder dioramas!
Sweetest in the Gale is a poignant story of love and healing. The heroine,Candy, has long been my favorite side character in the Marysburg series and is an English teacher with vibrant initatives such as the infamous “The monster isn’t Frankenstein” puppet show. Griff is her fellow English teacher and widower who is surprised by his attraction to her but doesn’t act on it. However, when the new school year starts and Candy returns a shell of herself, a poetry project they are working on together becomes the scene of both of their healing. Grief and the healing process as well as poetry are at the forefront of this story. Olivia Dade does a phenomenal job capturing this is in a short story and using poetry to really dig into those feelings. This story made me cry and then smile through my tears.
Cover Me was in the Rogue Acts anthology but this was my first time reading it. Honestly, this story was rough for me for personal reasons and do not ignore the content warnings for breast cancer. This is a marriage of convenience story between lifelong friends, Elizabeth and James. However, this is probably the most realistic marriage of convenience story in today’s world where Elizabeth marries James for medical insurance. While this is the initial reason, they quickly realize that there is so much more to their relationship. This is a story of love and unfailing support and is exactly what is needed when dealing with the difficult issues Elizabeth faces.
