A TIMELESS ROMANCE ANTHOLOGY: LOVE LETTER COLLECTION: Listeners will love this collection of six novellas - three contemporary and three historical - all with one thing in common: Romance.

In MAGGIE'S SONG, a charming story by Karey White, Maggie Jensen is part of a trio of best friends with Lucas and Dan. Together, they own and run Wild Country Hiking Tours. When Lucas returns to the company after getting his college degree, Maggie realizes that the crush she had on him as a teenager has now blossomed into so much more.

In JUST FLY, Krista Lynne Jensen's captivating novella, Wren is faced with the devastating news of her grandfather's death. But when her mom finds a mysterious letter from a woman named Dot in Seattle, Wren decides to visit the woman herself to deliver the news in person. Wren learns of the bucket list Dot and Gramps had put together with the help of Dot's grandson, Seth, and Dot challenges Wren to take her grandfather's place in completing the list.

HOW TO REWRITE A LOVE LETTER, an enthralling novella by Diane Darcy, high school teacher Julie Ashburn believes she'll never live the "event" down in which she wrote her true feelings in a love letter to Principal Dane Parker, and he laughed out loud, mocking her. Now that her honors English students want to write love letters for the school fundraiser, Dane turns down the idea flat. Julie tries to convince him that it was her students' idea and not any sort of payback. But when a student writes a fake love letter from the principal to Julie, everything gets even more mixed up.

In Sarah M. Eden's delightful story, A THOUSAND WORDS, Shannon Ryan has been waiting half a year to be reunited with her fiancé, Patrick, with only the letters between them keeping their relationship alive. He finally sends for her after securing a good job with the Sidney newspaper, and she can't wait to be reunited with him, swept up in his arms and thoroughly kissed. And of course, married as soon as possible. But when she arrives at the train station, there is no Patrick waiting for her.

BETWEEN THE LINES is a sweet romance by Annette Lyon. Jane Martin is intelligent but extremely shy, especially around men. When the Aid and Cultural Society proposes a letter-writing program, Jane signs up, hoping she can find true friendship. The program doesn't run as smoothly as expected, and unknown to Jane, one of the men in her city becomes her writing friend. Thomas Allred has always known shy and quiet Jane, but reading her letters written to his secret persona, opens his eyes to what an amazing woman she is.

In the enchanting novella, BLACKBERRY HOLLOW, by Heather B. Moore, Lucy Quinn travels to England to inspect her inherited estate. Unfortunately, as a resident of New York and nearly engaged, Lucy needs put the house on the market. But first, she wants to learn more about her ancestors. What she doesn't expect is Calvin Bevans, the man living next door.

Ugghhh

The narrator is a big drawback. She has a jerky style of reading that is a bit irritating. It's as if she saw it as reading news blurbs.

Thoughts on the stories themselves:

MAGGIE'S SONG: Cute. Except I kept thinking "Don't be unprofessional on the trip!!" But it worked out rather adorably. The narrator's Aussie accent was obnoxious, though. She didn't feel natural so it stood out too much. Almost wished she hadn't done one at all!

JUST FLY: It was okay. I kept skipping through, though. The premise bugged me. WAY too many heavy issues back home for her and then she's off doing a weird bucket list with people she's never met and suddenly falls in love in a week? No. There's a reason why they advise you not to make big, life decisions right after a loss. I found this completely unbelievable.

HOW TO REWRITE A LOVE LETTER: Setting aside the fact that a teacher dating HER BOSS is not just inappropriate but is also wrong, there is also the issue of the whole disaster with her sending him a love letter previous to the story. This whole story has "sexual harassment suit" written all over it. Also, the writing of the story wasn't good enough for me to look past that. Julie acts like a junior high school girl and the principal like he's a high school aged doofus.

A THOUSAND WORDS: The narrator's Irish accent was a bit obnoxious but not as bad as her Aussie one in the first story. The story was cute, though. The only good one, so far.

BETWEEN THE LINES: Ugh. Okay some turn offs. First, making it seem like it was an honor for boys to bully you in terrible ways because it means they like you. Second, a MAN dabbing his cologne on a letter in this time period?? Third, why do they keep calling the Thomas Allred a boy when he's the main love interest in a romance story?? But then again, she calls all the women girls as well so maybe the author thinks of all adults as children.

Anyway, this type of story has been done many, MANY times before and it has been done by FAR BETTER. It could be improved if she lost the preachiness and showed the letters. But as it is, I have a headache now from rolling my eyes so hard.

BLACKBERRY HOLLOW: The Narrator's British accent changes from upper class to lower class in the middle of sentences. A proper British housekeeper making the decisions as if she's the owner? Hmm. The neighbor tells THE OWNER that he's afraid her housekeeper might throw him out if he comes home with her?? This story doesn't quite work. It tries to but it doesn't make it. The family feud doesn't make sense. There doesn't seem to be a justification for it and the animosity of the housekeeper over an incident that happens generations before makes no sense. This author usually does better than this. She's the reason I tried this collection out and I am very disappointed.

I'm glad I got this on Audible Escape because I didn't have to pay for it. It's not worth it.

Loved them

I loved each of these sweet novellas. They fill your heart with warmth when listening to the well read stories. I also love that they were clean romances.
