“Love Letter to the Editor” by Robin Lee Hatcher

Only a miracle will prove her innocence, but the joining of two lonely hearts may be their saving grace.
This was an easy book to say yes to reading, and an easy book to read. Margaret Brownley, Debra Clopton, Mary Connealy and Robin Lee Hatcher are amazing historical authors who are masters at writing strong heroine characters and sweet romances. Four Weddings and A Kiss is no exception.
The stories are quick reads with memorable characters and fun plots. The men are as strong as the women and the sparks fly despite the different conflicts in each book. Although each story is very different, I loved having them all in one collection. I don’t know how to explain it, but these authors, these stories together—it felt right.
Reading Four Weddings and A Kiss is going to feel right, too. I believe this is a great summer read you’ll enjoy.

A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.
Susanna has found her true prince, and their happily ever after is just around the corner. But when Nate asks her to give up something precious to her, Susanna can’t help but wonder if it’s a sign that their love is not meant to be.
Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She’ll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, Susanna’s heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God’s plan for her.
Nathaniel would do anything for his bride-to-be. But he knows his position requires that she give up a lot to be with him. Her life will never be her own—right down to her very identity. When she travels home to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, right before the wedding, Nathaniel fears she won’t return. Gathering his courage, he devises a plan to win his bride all over again, and together they seek out a kingdom to treasure above all.
What a sweet surprise March Bride was. I didn’t know this novella was a continuation of Once Upon a Price, so readers get to revisit Susanna and Nathaniel’s love story weeks before their royal wedding. Their love is deep, but the conflicts continue. Susanna can’t shake that on her best day, she’s still a redneck Georgia girl and that an entire country is counting on her to be a princess. And she keeps seeing Nathaniel around a woman who is a better fit for him, and has made her intentions clear in the past. When Nathaniel confesses that Susanna has to make one more sacrifice before the wedding, she returns home to clear her head. Will she be able to surrender everything in order to marry her true love?
I really enjoyed March Bride because I still love a good fairy tale, and this is a realistic one, too. Susanna’s battle over identity is one all women can relate to, whether we’re marrying royalty or not. I absolutely related to her anxieties about not being good enough and whether her intended was having regrets. It’s captivating reading full of conflict and romance, and is a quick read. I do recommend reading Once Upon a Prince first. By doing so you learn about how their romance unfolds and the secondary characters who continue to get in the way in March Bride.
If you love romance, usher in spring with March Bride.

Join the angels, Shirley Goodness and Mercy Grace, for an enchanting look at the Christmas Season from a very interesting perspective.
Fast forwarding to Christmas 2035, the small town of Serenity Cove has undergone many surprising and adventurous changes. Computers, microwaves and even books have become obsolete. X-Eagle hover cars are quite the rave. And using a food processor has taken on a whole new meaning. Yet some things, like young love remain the same.
Sarah Anne Delatorre loves the handsome Ian Caldwell, but marrying him means leaving the town and the people she loves. She refused his first proposal, now it’s up to Ian to find a way to change her mind.
Shirley Goodness suggests fastening your seatbelts, when the Delatorre family boards the new Mach IV for an off planet trip to Belletroyan.
This was a fun novella because we journey to the future and find out how Serenity Cove and the people in it, are doing. Travel has changed, technology continues to advance to the point of the bookstore being for sale because people in 2035 rarely read them.
I liked seeing familiar faces, Jezzica, Maggie, and Samantha. As much as things change, a lot I can relate to stays the same. The conflict of staying close to family. Wanting to be with the ones you love. Sarah Anne’s conflict with Ian rings true, no matter the year.
What sets this apart are the two angels, Shirley Goodness and Mercy Grace. We see Serenity Cove from their perspective, and I think they give an unique, whimsical spin on a future romance.
It’s a quick read that will leave you with a smile.
