A Joy To Read!
All three stories were so funny. I fell in love with the characters and found myself laughing out loud. I am now searching for other books these authors have written. Thanks ladies for the giggles!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Truth in fiction is always fun
I thoroughly enjoyed these novellas. Maybe they had an element of 'too convenient,' but in novellas, there isn't time to develop intricate plot lines. However, the characters were delightful, the dialogue realistic, and all told by great story-tellers. I laughed and I cried, and you will, too. There's a plus in this book...each writer tells a bit about themselves and their own weddings. And Karen Ball's chilli episode really happened!Was this review helpful?

Funny & Inspirational - quick read
My sister gave me this book for a birthday gift and I love it. A busy PhD student, wife, and expecting mother, it's often difficult to find time to read. These three quick stories were a perfect fit and had me laughing out loud. While quite predictable these three stories did not dissappoint. I highly recommend!Was this review helpful?

>¿Fine Print¿ by Liz Curtis Higgs. O & O Printing CEO Roger Osborne hires communications expert Meghan DeWitt to coach his son Hugh on speaking techniques. Hugh suffers stage fright, but must provide a talk to the Traverse City Chamber of Commerce. As they work together, they fall in love, but she was once burned and vowed never again. ¿Fine Print¿ is a cute contemporary romance that readers will enjoy, but need to try to ignore the italics that disrupts a smooth reading. <P>¿Sweet Chariot¿ by Carolyn Zane. In Tacoma, octogenarian widows Opal Dinsmore and Eunice Kelley buy a used RV. However, the two grandmothers need to travel to Montana to obtain their new vehicle. Their grandchildren Jake and Lexie insist on accompanying the senior citizens, which fits nicely into the real agenda of the elderly women: bringing their two beloved grandchildren together. ¿Sweet Chariot¿ is a sweet tale that will please fans of inspirational romances, but the plot contains some ¿hands on¿ religion that slows down the story line. <P>¿Bride on the Run¿ by Karen Ball. Though she is already in her wedding gown, bride Alexandria Wingate knows she made a mistake. She flees knowing deep in her heart that God has intended someone else for her. When she meets Evan Noland, Alex believes the manager of a half-way house for youths is her destiny, but he does not see it that way. ¿Bride on the Run¿ is well written, but readers must leave their reality check at the first page to enjoy this tale of deep belief. <P.All three novellas are pleasant, humorous, and inspirational, but each contains flaws that the audience will forgive. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
