The stories were different, with a good message plus good entertainment. Sometimes the third story doesn't have the same impact as the first two, but in this 3 story volumn, all 3 were equally well writen and held ones interest to the end.
If you enjoy a quick romance, endearing characters, a setting that pretty much becomes a character, and stories that connect to each other, then Ozark Weddings will fit the bill. I am also always impressed when two authors can work together and, by aligning their talents, create such wonderful stories.
All three books in the Ozark Weddings collection are charming. You will love the characters and cheer for their loves. You will get mad at their miscommunications, or wrong perceptions, and you will keep reading page after page to be sure everything works out in the end. Does it? I am not a spoiler, you have to read for yourself. These books are fun to read and I am sure lovers of romance will love alll three books.
The three love stories in Ozark Weddings each delight, inspire and transport the reader. Even though I was disappointed that the title of the book pretty much told me how each tale would end, the characters kept me turning the pages. Each hero and heroine were genuinely interesting, down-to-earth and flawed enough for us to be able to relate to them, but not so much that readers look down on them. The brevity of the individual stories makes this book great for the reader who is looking for great fiction, but doesn't want to commit to an epic novel. I highly recommend this three-in-one collection.
This is a great three-in-one collection by Anita Higman and Janice Thompson.I enjoyed reading each of these stories, all set in Arkansas. The authors put a fresh twist on these romances. In "The Love Song", the main character is a painfully shy young woman. What a different heroine than the usual bubbly, outgoing characters. And the authors did a wonderful job in portraying what it is like to be shy.But I can't say it was my favorite story in the collection, because I also really enjoyed "Castles in the Air" in which the hero is a geek. Yes, he's a true nerd. What a wonderful and humorous take on a character. This story was a lot of fun to read. Yes, Zachary Martin got over his geekiness a little bit throughout the course of the book, but not completely. How wonderful to be loved just for who you are.All in all, one of the better novella collections I have read in a while. And Anita Higman is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.**This book was provided to me free of charge for review purposes. However, I don't post a review unless I truly like the story.
