Great range of characters and locale
I loved the range of characters in these stories, some young, some middle aged, one in seventies and another in her eighties. All of them are interesting people with a lot of fire, certainly is encouraging for those of us who are getting older but not slowing down. Much as I loved the characters though I thought the settings were just wonderful. I've never been to New England but after reading The Haven and Waiting for Lindy I'm ready to go. My favorite was the one about the woman who married the Cajun guy and then went home with him. I lived near Broussard, La for years and I felt like I was back there again. All of the stories present interesting situations, too. This isn't formula romance! The stories deal with complex situations, infidelity and childlessness and even murder. Every story leaves you with something to think about. My only complaint is that the book is too short. I read the stories one right after the other and then wanted more. I hope Valentine keeps writing because I'm ready to read about more of the people in her world.
