FIVE STAR REVIEWS:
“… easily devoured in a single sitting.”
“It is young love so fresh & new with all the trappings of heartache & embarrassment that can go with it.”
“This is Chick-Lit with a twist, and a squeeze of class. The style is comfortable, fluid and at ease with itself.”
“…delightful shorts, each approaching love from a different angle. The first reminds us all of how tumultuous young love or “infatuation” can be, never knowing how your heart truly feels until it’s forced to decide. The second was my favorite because it threw a bit of otherworldly interest into the mix. I loved the idea of a cupid sent from above to help us out. And the final short reminds us that what once was can never be again. This book was a great way to spend some down time without having to get embroiled in complicated subplots and character analysis. Easy beach or before bed read!”
