Ask Me Why by Jodi Thomas, Marie Force, Virginia Kantra and Shirley Jump - Book Review

About The Book:

Four new novellas in the Green Mountain, Harmony, Southern Belle Book Club, and Dare Island series!

From four contemporary romance stars, stories filled with first kisses, first dances, and happily-ever-afters… Midnight Bet by Jodi Thomas: When cousins Rick and Lizzy Matheson of Harmony, Texas, wind up on the wrong side of an attempted shooting, they know they’re in deep. Still, the biggest danger is losing their hearts—Rick to an old flame and Lizzy to an old friend she’d never noticed before… You’ll Be Mine by Marie Force: Will Abbott and Cameron Murphy are finally ready to tie the knot—as long as family, friends and a love-struck moose don’t get in the way. Wrapped Around Your Finger by Shirley Jump: Maggie McBride is just one of the guys in the hard-knocks world of construction. Until she’s dared to ask Nick Patterson to a wedding, enticing her to knock down some walls—and risk falling in love.
Carolina Heart by Virginia Kantra: Determined to leave her wild past behind, Cynthie Lodge is forging a new life for herself and her daughters—one that’s man-free and drama-free. But when her high school crush shows up on Dare Island, he’s determined to make her break her rules…

My Thoughts:

I picked up this book for a couple of different reasons. First of all, I adore Jodi Thomas' "Harmony" series and there is a novella here that is set in Harmony, Texas, and it brings two of the secondary characters of the series to the forefront with their stories of finding love in unexpected places.

Second, I love novellas!  You can pick up "Ask Me Why" and find an enticing story  that is fast and fun to read. Perfect for those busy summer days when you just need a moment for yourself to get your read on!

The three other authors are new to me, but oh my goodness - after reading their short stories that go along with their series novel, I want to go and pick up everything they have written. Marie Force's lovely wedding story from her "Green Mountain" series is a romantic contemporary fairy tale - it was great and made me long for the cool mountain town where the story is set!  Shirley Jump's characters in "Wrapped Around Your Finger" are a delight to meet, and Virginia Kantra's peek into her "Dare Island" island series is just lovely and makes me long for the sweet summer days in the Carolinas.

I highly recommend this collection of super stories!

I purchased this book for my personal collection. I was not compensated for my opinion.
