Two stories, two sisters. I liked these stories. But didn't love them. I a not sure why though. I kind of felt something was missing. Kind of unfulfilled. Cute story lines however.
On Line Proposal- Super sweet. I loved Drake and Colleen's chemistry. They click. The banter between Colleen and Sadie is hilarious. Who but your best friend would trash a gift you hate for you? The story is super clean with lots of fun moments. All read
Needs more work on pace and realistic dialogue.
Bride By Design Anthology Online Proposal by Barbara Joan Russell Colleen O'Hara's best friend just got married and was moving from Tennessee to South Dakota. Not only did Sadie send the bouquet Colleen's way, she also wanted to set her up with her new brother-in-law. Being it was only letting him email her, she agreed. Drake Reed missed his brother's wedding, as he was detained in the hospital on that special day. When Clark came over and asked him to email Sadie's best friend, he agreed. Being shy and awkward, Drake found it difficult to talk to a girl even through email and with her being states away. But he finally did, and was glad of it. A romance blooms via the Internet and all things seem hunky dory. Ha, there is always a wrench to be thrown into perfection. Even in a small South Dakota town, those wrenches can be thrown.

And then she comes along. Something about that blue-eyed homeless man has Maggie determined to help him, whether he wants help or not. I enjoyed this story. Every homeless person has his or her story...this is Tristan's.
