"The Twenty-First Wish" by Debbie Macomber - 3 stars

This is the first thing that I've ever read by Debbie Macomber. I've never really been too interested in reading her books so it was nice to get a little feel of her writing from this novella. I would say that this one is definitely a nice story, but it wasn't really for me. Everything just felt too...neat.

"Coming Unraveled" by Susan Mallery - 5 stars

"Coming Unraveled" is the story of Robyn and T.J., and if sort of a prequel to Mallery's latest, upcoming novel Already Home. It is a very cute story and I'm glad I read it. I always love Mallery's novels/novellas and this was no exception. It is definitely more along the lines of romance than Already Home, which is women's fiction.

"Return to Summer Island" by Christina Skye - 2.5 stars

This story started out dumb. Very dumb. First, Caro and Gage tell their life stories to each other after knowing each other for approximately twenty minutes. Huh. Yes, I can definitely see that happening. Then, they make-out after knowing each other for about an hour and a half. Very sensible. However, notice that I said it started out dumb. I actually did like it by the end and found it to be very sweet. Although that might have a lot to do with the adorable animals, Bogart and Bacall.

Leah Thank you. I'm just glad that it turned out to be less dumb by the end. Otherwise it would have gotten a .5-1 star!

Leah LMFAO! I'm sure you were. As I'm sure you know, I am doing the rolling my eyes and smiling at you thing. LOL

Leah Yeah...of course! LMAO

Mollie *scoutrmom* The twenty-First Wish is a part of the Blossom Street series, which is more about women's friendships than romance in my opinion. Thanks for the heads up.

Leah I realized that after I read it, LOL. But it is definitely more about the friendships than the romance. No problemo :)
