My Review:

My Thoughts on Along the Yellowstone River by Debby Lee: This was sort of a hallmark like a story about trapping. It was cute with sweet characters. Though it was somewhat too fast I did enjoy it.

My Thoughts on MissTaken Identity by Kimberley Woodhouse: Um, adorably troublesome! That’s what this story was. The MISStaken identity was cute and funny. Plus it’s my favorite of the collection.

My Thoughts on Lesson of Love by Cynthia Hickey: This was a humorous little story that had a sweet romance that I hope to reread again.

My Thoughts on Maddy’s Llamas by Marjorie Vawter: This was a unique story — in a good way! It was also funny, enjoyable, and sweet.

My Thoughts on Zola’s Cross-Country Adventure by Mary Davis: Though I didn’t care for some of the attitudes in this story I loved the determination of the ladies and that ending was awesome!

My Thoughts on Detours of the Heart by Donna Schlachter: This was a cute and somewhat hilarious novella with how the characters kind of went back and forth with their feelings for each other. The plot was perfect and the characters interesting and the mystery was intriguing.

My Thoughts on Riders of the Painted Star by Kathleen E. Kovach: I’ve read westerns and I may have read a book with actors in it (though I don’t think so.) And I have read books with painters but this one was different and I loved it though the ending was fast paced.


I received this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it.
