They say a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but as mistaken identities abound, three heroines will put this age-old adage to the test! Showcasing a trio of LDS fiction’s finest authors, Love Unexpected: A Storybook Romance is a heartwarming collection of short stories that begs the question: can true love really conquer all?
Storybook Romance by Melanie Jacobson —New York City book editor Ellie Hanover has discovered a groundbreaking manuscript that may be just what she needs to save her job. But when her anonymous correspondence with the author begins to develop into more than a professional relationship, Ellie is left wondering if her real find is actually Mr. Right.
He Loves Me Not by Jennifer K. Clark —When Kenedee spies her boss leaving flowers on her desk, she’s swept into a whirlwind of infatuation. If only he didn’t have a girlfriend . . . Undeterred, the young woman enlists in the scheme her employer’s brother has put in motion for the company’s sake in hopes that she can win over the man of her dreams. But even foolproof plans can go awry.
Fools of Us All by Julie Daines —The course of true love is never smooth, as Jane discovers when a case of mistaken identity results in a date with the man she’s admired from afar for years. But she knows all too well that masquerading as her twin sister can only go on for so long before the truth comes out.
I very much enjoyed these three romance novellas from these great authors. I have read books from each of these ladies, so I was looking forward to these novellas. Each were very well written. Each read quickly and had fantastic characters. I love and appreciate clean books that have great stories, and these novellas did not disappoint. I especially liked the settings. Storybook Romance was especially fun, seeing as how being an editor would be my dream job. But, Ellie did not have my dream boss. In He Loves Me Not, it would be very fun to live and work in Moab. And in Fools of Us All, I actually felt really sorry for Jane. I was pleased with how she finally makes a decision about one particular person in her life (and it wasn't the cute doctor). Jane was an amazing girl who takes care of her mother after the accident that killed her father. This story was a little more deeper than the others, only because of what Jane has and had to endure. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of romance and mistaken identities to go around!
4 out of 5 stars.
