"Whale Island" by Cathy Lamb
Lots of humor...of all the stories in the book, this is the one I would have liked to have seen expanded. It was the longest of all the stories (129 pgs) and it seems like it easily could have been longer and delved into a bit more of the story. It had the most depth to it of all the stories and I found myself really liking all the characters.
"Queen of Hearts" by Judy Duarte
3 1/2 stars
Judy Duarte brings back Mulberry Park in this one...if you haven't read that book, it is a very sweet, good book. This is another sweet story. Two people from high school come back together and find that they both have changed. Very tame and makes you hope that everyone grows into a better person after high school.
"The Honeymoon House" by Mary Carter
3 1/2 stars
Interesting one...some of it was a little over-the-top...some of it was just funny...overall, cute, but I just didn't feel it all the way through...something was missing and I just can't put my finger on what it was.
"The Marrying Kind" by Debbie Macomber
The shortest of all the stories. Different from a lot of other Macomber books...there was actually sex in this one! Even though it was short, I still really liked this one.
