I really enjoyed the 3 short stories in this book. Yes, they are love stories but not your typical sweet happily ever after kind. These are stories to relax with and enjoy.

Mardi Gras was over is the story that I enjoyed the most. But they are all well written and interesting. The author has a descriptive way with words that will make you feel as if you are part of the story. I definitely plan on reading more books from this author.

If you like short stories, this is an excellent book that you can

Kathleen Valentine has a deft hand with short stories involving love. Her characters are not all young, dewy-eyed innocents and love is not always the answer to happily ever after. But the stories linger in your memory as something that happened to someone you know. I also like her longer novels but her story collections remain my favorites.

From the Allegheny Mountains where she grew up, to the Gloucester seaport where she now lives and writes, Kathleen Valentine loves nothing more than listening to the stories that people tell while sitting on front porches, gathered around kitchen tables, or swapped in coffee shops and taverns. Her collection of legends, folklore, and tall tales are woven into her fiction. The award-winning author ...more
