The 12 Brides of Summer Novella Collection #3

I have been getting more requests lately to review different products on Amazon.  Today I got a very strange one.  I do not mind reviewing a product that I can use (who doesn't love getting something for free).  However, what use are crotchless panties?   If there is a good use (beside the obvious), I do not want to know!  I deleted that request, but it gave all of us a good laugh!

The Twelve Brides of Summer Novella Collection #3 has three Christian romance stories.  They are sweet and lovely romantic stories and each one contains a different message.  The Dog Days of Summer Bride by Margaret Brownley takes place in Bee-Flat, Kansas in 1883.  Marilee Davis teaches piano and has a dog, Mo that takes off on Friday.  Jed Colbert is the local blacksmith and has only been seeing his dog, Dynamite, lately on the weekend (Friday through Monday morning).  What is going on with the dog?  When the dog finds the banks missing money, who is the dog’s rightful owner?

The Dogwood Blossom Bride by Miralee Ferrell is set in Goldendale, Washington in 1883.  Gracie Addison is nineteen, wears trousers, climbs trees, rides astride, and goes fishing.  Her father would like her to act more like a lady and settle down with Jerold Carnegie.  Will Montgomery has just arrived in town with his eight year old niece, Lucy.  Lucy would like to be like Gracie.  Will just wants to keep his niece safe to see her grow up.  Why is Will so worried about Lucy’s safety?  

The Lumberjacks Bride by Pam Hillman is the third story in the novel.  Lucy Denson’s father has just moved the family from Chicago to Sipsey Creek, Missouri.  Her father is going to be an accountant for the logging camp.  Lucy is used to fine things and the city.  She encounters Eli Everett when she takes them lunch.  Lucy was daydreaming while walking in the woods and almost gets hit by a felled tree (I do not know how she did not her “timber”).  Eli is instantly smitten.  Can these two ever overcome their differences to have a life together?

All three stories are just charming and have very nice messages in them.  I give The 12 Brides of Summer Novella Collection (#3) 4 out of 5 stars.  Each story is very short, but well written.  I especially liked the dog in The Dog Days of Summer Bride (he was so funny).  If you are looking for a Christian romance book, check out The 12 Brides of Summer Novella Collection.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions expressed are my own.

I am off to put clean sheets on my bed (they are a beautiful red). Have a lovely evening and Happy Reading!
