Editorial Reviews

I absolutely LOVED this entire collection. While it’s a collection of 4 books in 1, the stories were extremely well written and highly captivating, so this was a fast paced read. I would turn each page to each story, and find myself thrown into a completely new twist or turn and there were times I thought I things figured out and then one of the authors would hit me with a new puzzle piece, and I’d have to start the guessing game all over again. That was awesome!

I definitely recommend this 4-in-1 novella collection by some fantastic Christian authors. It’s a high 5 Book worthy, two thumbs up collection that will keep you guessing, and leave you feeling like you’ve made some fantastic new friends! These authors are talented and their work is sure to be on my future reading list now!

    I was interested in reading about the different places in Washington. I thought the couples got engaged to fast. But, this was a good book, fun to read. Although, in Coffee, Tea and Sweets the back cover has Vince's last name as one thing and the inside of the book has something else.

    Book Summary: Four women encounter love, danger, and mystery beyond their neighborhood near Washington, DC. Tara Whitley, assistant chef at the White House, helps FBI agent Jack Courtland unmask a state-dinner saboteur. Attorney Ciara Turner and her nemesis Daniel Evans investigate a judge's murder. Archeologist intern Samantha Steele almost loses her nerve and children when she and security guard Nick Porter investigate a forgery at Mount Vernon.

    Review: These were page turners. I enjoyed the characters and how they intertwined with one another. I enjoyed the mysteries along with the relationships between the characters. It was like stepping into the world of these women and how easy it was to feel like a part of the stories while everything is happening so quickly in the start of the stories. I really like the first story the best and that really helped to make the others enjoyable.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Barbour Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    Writing a novel is hard enough work for one person. Writing a novel with four authors I can imagine would be a challenge, but one that every single one of these authors pulled off with finesse.

    Every single one of the novellas in this collection was a great read. With characters that cross over into every one of the other books, the authors stayed true to the characters their co-writers had also created.

    "Lovers and Lawbreakers" is the tagline for the novel and its a great description of Cherry Blossom Capers. It includes great setting, good characters and talented authors that put it all together. My favorite stories though would have to be by Cara Putman and Gina Conroy (debut author). It's a quick read, one novella can be read in about a short amount of time, but the authors didn't scrimp on characterization or the importance of story.

    A fun and well-written collection!

    Set in Washington, D.C., Cherry Blossom Capers tells the story of four women in four stories that are connected, but separate. The four women live in condominiums that allow them to keep friendly track of each other. Tara Whitley is an assistant chef at the White House who runs into an old friend searching for a breach in the security there. Ciara Turner is an attorney fighting for women and children in divorces when she and another attorney become prime witnesses in the murder of their old employer. Samantha Steele a budding archeologist is caught up in a forgery scheme at Mount Vernon. Susan Holland stumbles into danger when she inherits a mansion from her uncle. All four women depend on each other and God to see them through to safety, encountering love interests along the way.

    Christian fiction is often bland and uninteresting. Cherry Blossom Capers has interesting characters, and interesting action to keep the reader involved. All the characters suffer trials and stumbles in their day-to-day lives as they attempt to live according to their beliefs. Possibly the four different authors lend the characters such separate personalities that they it gives the story more depth and perhaps one author might achieve. Interesting book, written with an interesting format. I really enjoyed it.
