My Review

3 different short stories from 3 authors which can be read as standalone.

1st story by Fern Michaels are gearing more towards women fiction. Started off with Gracie’s coming home to spend her holiday with her mother and sister only to discover the truth about herself. 

Lori Foster wrote the 2nd story focusing around Cory and Austin. The story developed rather too fast and as a result the love story between them look surreal to me.

The 3rd and final story is by Carolyn Brown is about Tyler and Monica, their 2nd chance to be together again with the helps from both their grandmother.
