Cedar Creek Seasons is easily one of my favorite Romancing America titles thus far. Each author infused her story with humor and hope. I also loved the little hints of the other novellas’ characters popping in here and there. This is a masterful collection you won’t want to miss.

Four lovely romances all in one pretty package! I love books that contain stories of a similar nature and this one didn't disappoint. Set in a small town in Wisconsin, the four stories each take on a setting of a season of the year. It really made me think about how different times of years and acts of nature shape our lives and the things we do and feel during those times!
Irene's Christian Reviews - Irene Grove

I love these books published by Barbour! The four stories in this book take place in Wisconsin. Each story can be enjoyed alone but because the take place in the same town there is some cross over information. I enjoyed each story but liked the last story the best.  In that story a woman comes back to town to help her Grandfather with his store and a man comes back and opens a shop a few doors down. How they interact is written very well and their relationship is believable. The authors’ descriptions are so well done. I can’t wait to read more by her books and more by the other authors as well!

    I thoroughly enjoy romances that celebrate real-life people in all their glorious, humorous imperfections, and Cedar Creek Seasons is such a book. All four novellas overflow with humor and quirkiness. The characters ring true—as rumpled and odd and wonderful as your friends—and the writing is fresh and fun and truthful.

    Great stories

    Each of the four stories revolve around a season. Not only seasons of nature but each represent a seaon of life that the character finds themselves in and how God used those seasons to teach each charcter something important but God manages to bring love in their lives no .atter what they might be dealing with. Great collection of stories. I highly recommend this book.

She is in a bath robe freezing and sees someone else in the parking lot and sees if he can help. Wilson Woodworth can't fix her car but does give them all a ride home. He gets invited in for chilli. Wilson is an artist and lives in a barn he is entering a contest to win a years rent of store in a mall for a year. He also offers to give willow's daughter art lessons in exchange for some cleaning. Willow inheirited the children from a friend who died. She makes childrens furnature and cleans houses to make extra income. She sees the contest to win free rent for a year. She sells on the internet and makes furnature at home so this would let her expand. She is also entering a chilli cookoff. Its cute and funny story with a bunch of comunication errs in it. In Tune with You by Rachael Phillips Chesca Appel is part-time choirmaster and music box shop manager getting ready for Easter celebration. Seth Amundsen is tone deaf football coach and drama that the Paster wants to be part of the program and also wants children to be part of it. Seth gets creatave ideas and he springs them on Chesca with no warning and humor ensues. Like he talks a farmer in letting them use his donkey named stupid in the church. Chesca and Seth grow close over the two months of planning and practices. Then Seth ex-fiance shows up in the choir she has been gone for two years. Also one of the younger girl hates Chesca because she has crush on Seth. Lots of humor and talk about Easter and sharing the gospel in it. Silvery Summer by Eileen Key Claire Parsons has come to where she grew up with her neice and her boyfriend to sell pottery at the Strawberry festaval. While thier her promise ring that she has had for over 40 years has a prong broken and the jewelry shop where he had made it is just right thier. She thinks the store has been sold probably and he would not be thier it was so long ago. He broke her heart years ago. Eli Mueller comes out to the front of the store and he sees Claire. Claire hurries off and leaves her purse on the counter. Eli has never married. He has waited years to see Claire again and wants to ask her why. Eli figures out where she is and takes her purse to her. It has been 40 years since they saw each other and never have they gotton over each other. Its touching story. you want them to get back together and be happy. Maybe Us by Cynthia Ruchti Beth Schurmer could not get a job teaching after collage so she came back to run her grandmas yarn shop and take care of her grandfather. A couple of shops down from hers a new bakery is open and has Brownies for 4.50 a piece. She decides she will get one to try. Derrick Hofferman is the new baker. He is really tall and clumsy. He likes Beth and listening to her grandfather's stories. He is creating new brownies and is letting them taste test for him. Derrick is keeping secrets about why he is in town and spending so much time in the yarn store. He likes Beth and her grandfather. It is a touching story. I like Derrick. I enjoyed read all four stories. They are different from each other but all are clean, no sex scenes or swear words. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest reviews from Netgalley. 9/1/2012 PUB Barbour Publishing,Inc.
