Short but sweet romance. This is the first Roseanne Dowell book that I have read and I enjoyed it very much. Read it in one sitting. Took me about an hour or less. Wasn't to smutty.

When you are writing a short story or a novella there isn't room for unnecessary items. Otherwise I really enjoyed the story. That's why I rated it 4 ...more

Not being one to ignore someone in need, she rushes across the yard. It’s a ...more

This short story was missing the depth necessary to make it an enjoyable read. The reader is left feeling like they missed the middle of the story where the characters fell in love.

As the second youngest of six children, I always had a vivid imagination and loved to make up stories. I often sat and daydreamed about imaginary characters and lost myself in books and make-believe worlds. My love of writing began as a teenager, but it wasn’t until recent years that I pursued it seriously. With encouragement from fellow book-club members, NEORWA and my husband, I began writing ...more
