Helpful Score: 1

This Anthology was a perfect 10!!!!
It's rare that I like ever story in an anthology, but these three stories (though short) about three friends finding love was really wonderful reading!!!

"One Baby to Go" by Laurie Paige brings a charming new slant to the single mom story. Jordan's sperm donation was only supposed to be used by his wife. After she dies, he discovers that a stranger may have been inseminated with his sperm and carrying his child. His search brings him to two women, and he can't help but hope it is Marisa, who stirs feelings in him that he thought had died with his wife.

In "Marriage on the Menu," Nick, the man Callie has loved for years, suddenly notices that she's all grown up. Can he blame this sudden knowledge on the Crazy Moon Festival? Linda Turner writes a delightful story of a faithful love that is finally rewarded.

The death of his wife and son leaves Marcus quite content to be alone. That is, until he visits the Crazy Moon Festival. After rescuing the widow Adler's two children, he finds himself their prime candidate for dad
