3 very different romance stories.

MaryJanice Davidson - Cuffs and Coffee Breaks - the story felt like it was crammed into a novella. Would be a great full length story.

Leslie Esdaile - A "No Drama" Valentine's - In my opinion the best of the 3 stories. The story was hilarious and the characters were vivid. I must say that even my worst Valentine's Day is 1000 times better than Jocelyn's. The author brought the supporting characters to life and I would like to see if she's given any of them their own story.

Susanna Carr - Valentine Survivor - Good plot, but it also needed more space to play out. Not Ms. Carr's best work but still a good read.

I love short stories but I really hate when the story leaves you feeling as if the author had to compromise plot points for space. But each author did make me wonder if any of the supporting characters already had their own story in print or planned to print. I guess that is a compliment to each of their works.

I bought this for MaryJanice Davidson's story. Susanna Carr's story was cute too. Did not like Leslie Esdaile's too much.

All of the stories were pretty good but was laughing out loud to Maryjanice Davidson. Susanna Carr had the next best story and then Leslie Esdaile. quick read

I expected better of Mary Janice Davidson, cute story but far-fetched. I had never read Lesli Esdaile and I couldn't finish her story. Her language/slang usage turned me off in the first five pages so I gave it a miss. LOVED Susanna Carr's contribution! More emotions than most of her stories but excellent.

First story is funny and fun. The second and third are okay, but not as funny.

Ugh. Did not care for most of this book at all. I enjoy Mary Janice Davidson's Betsy and Fred books, so picked this one up. Hers is the first in the book, and I enjoyed it, but the other two...

I like Susanna Carr's story. The other two were a little slow.

If you're into "desperate" woman meets darn near perfect man, this book is for you. Three short stories which take place on/around Valentine's Day -- with a little murder thrown into each story.

loved "cuffs and coffee breaks"! funny and made me smile. "valentine survivor" was really good too!
i did not like or could get into "A "no drama" valentine's" by leslie esdaile. that one i stopped reading after 2-3 pages. it was the too many:pullease, girl, or gurrrllll! it was a crap story that i could not read.
but the other 2 stories made up for it.
