My Thoughts

First of all, my overall thoughts on the whole collection...

Such a sweet collection of stories!  I really enjoyed them all!

Now, individually...

Picture Perfect Love: A June Wedding Story by Melissa McClone

This was a very good story and it had a great message.  There wasn't much that I didn't like about this story.  It is the kind of story that makes you smile involuntarily while you're reading it.  I love it when that happens!

I Hope You Dance: A July Wedding Story by Robin Lee Hatcher

This one was a good story, but not my favorite of the three.  It wasn't that I didn't like it, I just liked the others better.  Still, an enjoyable, sweet story!

Love on a Deadline: An August Wedding Story by Kathryn Springer

I do believe that Love on a Deadline was my favorite story of the three!  I couldn't get enough of it!  It's the kind of story that sucks you right in and leaves you wanting more.  I felt like I connected with the characters, the setting, and the storyline more than the other stories in this collection.  So Good!
