Take a trip to the Oregon coast with these delightful stories that I thoroughly enjoyed. Each author has written a novella with wonderful characters and fun story lines. I loved the way they intertwined the stories following the bridesmaids and the bride after a bride cancels her wedding. I have enjoyed prior stories by each of these authors and loved reading this collection. I was given a free copy of the set, but a favorable review was not required. The opinions expressed are my own, and this is a collection that I definitely recommend to the reader who enjoys Christian romance.

Finding Love in Lincoln City: Sometimes finding love takes loosing something or seeing your friends loose something to shake your world up. In this book Liz is faced with a family secret that destroyed her belief in what could be. When faced with the possibility of love or being single she reaches out to God for answers but is she getting the ones she wants or the one God wanted for her. This book was fun love story with a competitive nature back and forth between the main characters looking for love why doing a job the both love. Finding Love in Oceanside: After a failed friends wedding Anabeth starts to question her journey. With a few days off she decides to head to her moms in hopes for some time on the beach and some answers. When Mitch crashes into her life she also sees that life could be so much more if she could just get past the doubt. Such a fun book with lots of fun characters. Mitch's dad is old school but seems to have a flare for fun and mischief which is evident in this story. I love how just like the previous story the draw of the ocean cities is a way to find peace and connect with God while finding hope for the future Finding love in Cannon Beach: Two awkward closet geeks have one big thing in common music. Can music bring the through the brokenness and help them find what they are looking for? In this book Kadence is left more confused and frustrated with life after her best friends wedding ends with no one married her parents ask her to stay with and aunt and she seeks comfort in the quiet beach life. Foster has a bit of a gypsy spirit and is happy for now helping those in this small Oregon town. The thing about this story that seemed to confuse me a little was the awkwardness between the main characters and some times the pull towards each other didn't make sense but seemed forced. I did however enjoy the eccentric Nan she seemed to have a small role that packed a large punch and not someone to be double crossed Finding love in Seaside: Christina is faced with weather or not did she make the right choice when she decided to leave her Ex-fiance at the alter. She feel like in her heart it was the right choice but when she takes a honeymoon all alone and comes face to face with reality her head and her heart just don't seem to be adding up. In this story while short like the other three it seemed to flow well and seemed like there was more to come with Dave and his brothers. I liked while Christina is faced with so trials it didn't seem to weigh the story down and the author used characters like Sam to add a light hearted fun loving feel to the story. I think out of all of the four stories this had to be my favorite. Christina and Dave both seemed to find looking for healing in the brokenness, and it made them super relatable. All three friends seem to have their worlds rocked by one friends decision to not get married but tried to find healing in all the craziness. I enjoyed that all the stories were tired together and all the stories seem to have a purpose each different. I was not a fan of all the stories but the others made up for it and it was nice to read a good clean christian romance story. Definitely a good summer read.

Finding Love At The Oregon Coast: A Romantic novella collection By: Angela Ruth Strong , Christina Coryell, Heather Woodhaven, and Lisa Phillips Finding Love At The Oregon Coast is a collection of romance novellas from four difference authors and four difference novella that all take place in Coastal towns of Oregon . Christian , a young bride to be who at the last minute decides that her fiancee, Eddie , is not the man for her. I enjoyed each of these novellas and the authors all did a great job writing them. I enjoyed reading how each of them folded together to make one story . I was given a complimentary copy of this book, but was not told that I had to give a positive review.

This is a delightful set of novellas. The stories center around a bride about to walk the aisle and 3 of her friends, who are her bridesmaids. Each novella features a different woman. I won't give anything away, but they are such wonderful little stories, you can't help but cheer these ladies on! I enjoyed it very much and my favorites were the contributions from Christina Coryell and Angela Ruth Strong, although the entire collection is good. Don't miss this great summer read. *I was given a complimentary copy. My review is my own honest opinion. (

As the title describes, this is a set of novellas that take place in lovely coastal towns of Oregon. The author of the Prologue, Angela Ruth Strong, sets the pace of the novellas. We are introduced to Christina, a bride to be , her bridesmaids and the maid of honor. They have been friends since college. The wedding is cancelled when the bride realizes that if her fiance is not going to be a man of faith, she feels she would not have a happy marriage. I especially liked Finding Love in Lincoln City , by Heather Woodhaven. Liz (the maid of the cancelled wedding ) meets up again with the guy she has loved since college. But he might cost her job in a local magazine, and she is afraid of being hurt. In general , each story is one of faith in God, in belief in oneself and in the possibility of love. Is it worth the risk and will these women take a chance of loving and being loved. A nice book for a summer reading. I was gifted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Enjoyed these books set in the different towns on the Oregon coast I've lived in! I loved watching each romance story unfold and how they found their happily-ever-after. Characters to love, beautiful coastal scenery and romance, what more could you ask for?

In the prologue, Christina and her bridesmaids are taking care of last minute preparations for her wedding. The four young women have been best friends since college. When Christina asks her fiancé to pray with her just before the ceremony, he refuses and she calls off the wedding. Each novella is the personal story of one of the friends. Finding Love in Lincoln City by Heather Woodhaven is about Liz, who was Christina’s maid-of-honor, and Tom, who was a friend in college. Before the wedding, Liz and Tom had not seen each other in eight years. Finding Love in Oceanside by Lisa Phillips is Anabeth’s story. She has decided to spend a few days with her mother before returning to her home and job in Virginia after the wedding. She meets Mitch who works for his father in the family landscaping and lawn care business. Her mother is one of their customers. Finding Love in Cannon Beach by Christina Coryell tells the story of Kadence, a struggling songwriter living in Nashville, and Foster, a musician who is helping a friend by keeping his counseling practice going until the friend recovers from an illness. Finding Love in Seaside by Angela Ruth Strong brings the reader back full-circle to Christina as she goes alone to the bed and breakfast where she and her fiancé had planned to spend their honeymoon. Dave is running the bed and breakfast while he tries to convince the owner to sell it to him so he can start a retreat center for pastors to recover from failure or burnout. The stories are entertaining but I especially enjoyed them because each of the main characters had struggles of their own and had some serious decisions to make. To me, I sensed each author was sharing a story of what our lives and our love should be like when we surrender totally to Jesus Christ. As an example, one character said he sensed God telling him to wait. When he rushed ahead at the prodding of someone else, he quickly discovered he needed to give it up to God and let Him direct. I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher. This is my honest review. All opinions are strictly my own.

Somehow, books by Angela Ruth Strong always end up on my favorites list. Granted, Finding Love on the Oregon Coast is a compilation of 4 novellas, three by other authors, but these all had such a strong story line tie-in. One bride-to-be makes it minutes from the altar,only to realize that the man she is marrying isn't the person she needs. The reader is then whisked into the stories of her three bridesmaids, who one-by-one,find the man of their dreams when they let go of their own understanding and let God. Finally, the reader returns to the runaway bride. Having read other romance novels by Angela Ruth Strong, I was nevertheless surprised to see that this one would include Dave Lake, another brother of a family of single men about whom Strong has been writing. The book was already good,but that really amped up my interest! Strong has a unique writing style that includes romance, angst, faith, and humor. My reading soul comes away from her books fully sated. Too bad there can't be about 20 Lake brothers!!
