Review: Four Weddings and A Kiss

Four Weddings & a Kiss

Four Weddings and A Kiss is a set of four novellas written by Margaret Brownley, Robin Lee Hatcher, Mary Connealy, and Debra Clopton. It's a Western collection, and each story is "told" by a different preacher. All of them were well done and interesting. I love collections like this because on the days when you really want to read, but you don't have a lot of time, you can read a story in one sitting.

"Spitfire Sweetheart" by Mary Connealy was my favorite. It was pretty funny. Maizy MacGregor's mother died when she was really young so she's only had her dad to raise her. She grew up learning how to be a cowgirl instead of a lady. Rylan Carstens was distracted by Maizy so he forbid her to go on his land, but Maizy goes anyway which ends up causing all sorts of trouble to ensue.

"Love Letter to the Editor" by Robin Lee Hatcher was my second favorite story. Molly Everton has helped out at her father's newspaper for years and has always expected to become the next editor. But then her father hires a stranger to do her job! Determined to get Jack Ludgrove to quit, Molly tries everything she can think of to dissuade him from this job.

"A Cowboy for Katie" by Debra Clopton is about "crazy" Katie Pearl. She survived a tornado, but being alone under the house for three days has made her afraid of people and the dark. When she finds a cowboy looking for a work, she is desperate enough to hire him. Treb Rayburn gets past her prickly nature to find the real woman beneath the fear.

"Courting Trouble" by Margaret Brownley is about lawyer, Brock Daniels, who left back East after a troubling case. Now he only does things like wills. But when a twelve year old boy comes begging him to help defend his mother, Grace Davenport, from a murder charge, he reluctantly agrees to talk to her. Once he hears her story he is compelled to take her case.

These are fun, lighthearted, historical romances with in depth characters and interesting storylines. Order it today! You won't regret it. :-)

I was given this book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
