Book Description
In 1885 five western preachers sit around a campfire talking about unlikely couples they've seen God bring together.

“Spitfire Sweetheart” by Mary Connealy

Maizy Place is an unruly tomboy. When she causes an accident, injuring neighbor Rylan Carstens, she becomes his unlikely caregiver. Rylan has never noticed how pretty his infuriating neighbor is, and he never expected to fall in love.

“Love Letter to the Editor” by Robin Lee Hatcher

Molly Everton is the outspoken daughter of the town newspaper's owner. When her father brings in an outsider to be editor, she tries to drive him out of town. But Jack Ludgrove is not intimidated. He’s resolved to change Molly's mind about him—as an editor and as a man.

“A Cowboy for Katie” by Debra Clopton

Katie Pearl is uninterested in men and love. But she needs help on her ranch and hires Thad Rayburn, a wandering cowboy looking to make a buck. Will Thad change Katie’s mind?

“Saving Grace” by Margaret Brownley

Grace Davenport is either the unluckiest woman alive—or a killer. When her third husband is found dead, Grace is arrested. Attorney Brock Daniels isn't interested in the case—until he meets Grace. Only a miracle will prove her innocence, but the joining of two lonely hearts may be their saving grace.
Book Review
 I was so excited to get this book in the mail. Margaret Brownley, Mary Connealy and Robin Lee Hatcher are all authors that I have read in the past, and I absolutely adore them. Debra Clopton, however, I had never heard of. Turns out, her novella was the one that I enjoyed most! I mean, none of them were . . . bad per say, but I was pretty disappointed. I 've come to expect a lot from this group of authors because I have seen what they are capable of. It seemed to me that most of the novella's in this collection were just thrown together in a hurry in order to meet a deadline. I could even write something like this, and that's saying something. Maybe I'm just not a novella person. Most of them leave me wanting. I have read precious few that really impress me because most authors don't take the time to make a REAL story out of it. Now, all this being said, I didn't absolutely hate it. I'm a sucker for a good country romance, and that's just what this collection is (even if some couples were a bit hasty in my opinion). And there were some really sweet moments with some even sweeter characters. I would have to say that my favorite book in this collection would be "A Cowboy For Katie" by Debra Clopton. It was just a really sweet, lighthearted story. I would recommend this collection to anyone that doesn't have a lot of book related deadlines like I did when I read it, and to someone who is looking for a book to read at intervals (vacation, maybe?). Happy reading!
