|Linda Lyle Miller is my absolute favorite type author. I have read all her western historicals, her contemporary historicals, and am on the listing to receive each of her books as they come available. Therefore, it is easy to be partial to her work. However, she has teamed up with two other authors, Jennifer Apodaca and Shelly Laurenston, whose writings, while different, are in the same element as Miller. This anthology is a spectacular offering of three unique, but equally wonderful, scripts.
Miller wrote “One Last Weekend” about a couple, facing divorce proceedings, who decided to spend one last weekend at their beach cottage. Their dog, Sammy, and their grown daughter, Caitlin, suffered through the potentially sorrowful weekend while the forty-something couple faced some deep soul searching.
“You Give Love a Good Name”, by Apodaca, is a suspenseful story about a wedding planner who was accused of assault and battery after attacking a groom-to-be with a stapler! She was being stalked but the legal folks and family members she talked to about it thought she was making it up. She felt she had no choice but to run away and hide.
Shelly Laurenston, in “My Kind of Town”, has written an interesting story which was new to me—a story about shifters! I was a little skeptical about reading a story based on the plot of people changing (shifting) from human to animals. However, I am sure you will agree that she not only did a great job of telling the story, but she also presented it in a way that even I could not wait for the outcome.
Overall, this great book has presented plots that are fresh and new as well as interesting. My emotions ran the gambit from (many) tears to laughter to euphoria! I highly recommend this anthology for a great read and one which you will instantly want to recommend to your friends. Great job, ladies!
