If you've read Debbie Macomber's Midnight Sons series of 6 books (or even 1 or 2 of them) you've met Scott (Sutherland) O'Halloran as a young boy who gives "advice to the lovelorn).
In this book Scott is all grown up and in need of advice himself. Find out if he fullfills the promise he made many years ago that he'd marry Chrissie Harris "freckles and all"!!

I read this book primarily as I had just finished the Midnight Sons, Hard Luck Alaska series by Debbie Macomber and the first story in this book is a continuation of that story. It was fun to see what happens to the characters 20 years later.

macomber revisits Hard Luck, Alaska and it's fun to revist the towna nd characters. Good book, the other two were good too. book 2 is by Judith Bowen based in Glory, Alberta. A cowboy town in cowboy country. A cute quick read, and the last in the book is by Janice Kay Johnson another quick and fun read. Enjoyed all three of these quick reads.

This was a great book and helped me to try some other writers that I would not have thought of trying. It was a great fast read.

Midnight Sons and Daughters by Debbie Macomber
3 stars
This story is the follow-up to the Midnight Sons Series (Mail-Order Marriages, Family Men: Midnight Sons Volume 2, and Last Two Bachelors: Midnight Sons Volume 3).
Scott O'Halloran, who was a nine-year-old boy in the older volumes, is all grown-up. He's moved back to Hard Luck and wants to win back Chrissie Harris, his first and only real love.
Chrissie refuses to let Scott break down her defenses...again. He's broken her heart twice before and she won't let him do it a third time.
A cute story...Macomber brings back the old couples and gives an update on how they all are doing. Not only it is a homecoming for Scott, but also the readers of the Midnight Sons series. Not the best story, but a must read for those who enjoyed the other Midnight Sons books.

The Glory Girl by Judith Bowen
3 stars
Part of a "series" about Glory, Alberta. I have not read any of the others, but it didn't seem necessary to read this story.
It is cute, but a little goofy. Jack is a little over-the-top and Hannah is too under-the-top.

Promise Me Picket Fences by Janice Kay Johnson
4 stars
Part of a "series" about Elk Grove, Oregon. I also have not read any of these before and there was no need. It appears that some of the other characters were mentioned (Abby and her sisters), but I'm not 100% sure.
I think I liked this one the best of the 3. It was the most "realistic" and also didn't just return to a town for the sake of an update. Melanie and Kevin have a real issue and it could keep them apart. I like how it was resolved at the end. For a short story as part of an anthology, it was well-developed. A good, cute read.
