I am reviewing two of the novellas from this fun collection. These are all stand alone stories. I really enjoyed reading the two novellas that I am reviewing and I look forward to getting to read others in the collection in the future!
Mistletoe and Sage by Lyn Cote
I liked the combination of two hardworking law enforcement officers, each with hurts from their past coming together to solve a string of vandalism crimes plaguing their small town. These two characters were easy to like and I felt compassion toward both of them and hope for a future as a family together. There was also a sweet little boy in the mix. I loved seeing the way his mom was doing her best to be a good mother to him.
The Kampala Peppermint Twist by Milou Koenings
This novella was so fun to read! I loved the way the two main characters meet on the airplane and the way their lives intersect over the following weeks in Africa. This story does a great job of exposing the misconceptions we can have about people based on their place in society. There were plenty of humorous moments, but also so much heart! I really loved the setting for this novella and the way the relationship developed for the characters in this story.
I received complimentary copies of these two novellas in exchange for my honest review.
