Sincerely Yours ~ Review

Sincerely Yours
A Novella Collection
By Jane Kirkpatrick, Amanda Cabot,
Laurie Alice Eakes, and Ann Shorey

Sincerely Yours is a delightful collection of 4 novellas from Revell and in each the common thread is a that changes the life of a woman.  For some the letter is crushing, for others it is joyous.  But for each it is life altering and a chance at romance.

In Moonlight Promise Camilla Renfrew is desperate to get away from the man to whom her brother is in debt.  And she willing to make a leap that would shock those who know her.  But danger is lurking on the Erie Canal and she could lose more than her heart.

In Lessons in Love Marigold is keeping a secret that is about to be exposed unless she can convince her piano teacher to help her keep it.  But to keep her secret she'll need to open her heart to Colin Thackery.  But could something more than a series of marriage articles be in Merrie's future or will she be a crusader like her aunt?

In One Little Word Lorraine Caldwell is on the verge of losing her inheritance unless she marries soon.  Be marriage isn't what she wants - at least not to the man handpicked for her.  But can she give up the luxuries to which she is accustomed?  Or will she hold out for love?  Little does she realize that one little word will forever alter her life.

In A Saving Grace Grace answers the desperate pleas of her goddaughter, but in so doing puts herself in harm's way.  But Grace made a promise and she intends to keep it.  She needs an ally, but whom can she trust with her life and perhaps her heart?

These four stories are perfect for a quick escape from the pressures of the day.  Sweet, yet dramatic, you'll take a trip back in time to when America was still growing from shore to shore.  This is a great vacation read for the beach and summer is just around the corner unless you get May blizzards (and yes we do in Wisconsin - 12 inches last May 2nd!)

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Revell in exchange for my honest review.
