Where Trains Collide was a highly anticipated read for me. It's been a few years since Amber Stokes released a book, and I've really enjoyed her previous stories, so I was looking forward to reading this one. It did not disappoint and was worth the wait.

I loved how the book started (with a blog post entry!). It was a fun way to get into the story and I liked the MC right away. The romance was sweet (I love second chance romances!) and it was wonderful to see how everything would unfold.

Trisha had a dream, a painted masterpiece of what her future might be -- until all her hopes finally burnt out.

Ever since I read my first Amber Stokes book back in 2016, I knew I needed more! So when Amber announced the release of her latest novella, Where Trains Collide, a couple months ago, I signed up as a reviewer without a moment's hesitation! And oh, my friends, I'm so glad I did. <333

Where Trains Collide tells the story of Trisha Knolane, a college student who has little hope of a happ

Where Trains Collide was a sweet love story of weekend train rides and second chances. I didn't fall head over heels in love with the story, but it was sweet and fun. Kind of predictable too, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. ;) Oh, and I loved seeing Derrick and Samantha from How a Star Falls! :D

I really enjoyed all the details about the train and the area. At the time I read this book, I was about to visit that area of California and Oregon, so recognizing some of the names and such wer

Where Trains Collide is a delightful novella about hope, second chances, and stepping away from a comfort zone. Trisha’s viewpoint is relatable and wonderfully emotionally developed even within the shorter timeline. Amber’s world-painting skills shine in this story – I felt like I was seeing the world pass by through the train windows and experiencing the wilderness and idyllic Oregon coastal setting.

I appreciated that the story is not a “perfectly resolved” stretch of time but rather an in-betw

I love a spontaneous adventure, but the main character in this book sure doesn't! That doesn't stop her from escaping for a quick getaway to visit her brother and friend when life becomes too much. We get to know her as she departs and even more when she encounters her boyfriend from three years ago. I thought it was interesting that we learned some of her flaws and his through their interactions on the train and at their destination, but also why they worked so well together. I liked how the bo ...more

Once more, Stokes amazes me with her ability to make a novella feel like such a rich and full story. In the pages of Where Trains Collide, I came to feel like I really knew Trisha Knoeland Her struggles and triumphs made her feel like a real person; one I wouldn’t mind hanging out with on a train ride to Oregon! Her struggle with making decisions about her future is one most all of us can relate to. And when life gets that overwhelming, who doesn’t want to throw caution to the wind and get away ...more

To say that I'd been anticipating this release would be putting it very mildly! And it was definitely worth waiting for. :) There is such sweetness in watching these two characters find each other again. It's not an easy journey for the two of them, but oh so wonderfully real!

It was Trisha I connected to immediately. You'd wonder how I, being an adult long beyond college age, could understand her fears and uncertainties, probably. But I do! Sometimes I wonder if we ever truly get life figured ou

I think my favorite part of this novella is that the cover matches the story perfectly :)

Stokes manages to fit a very sweet story into only a few chapters. I think anyone who has ever been to college or faced indecision of some sort will relate to Trisha, she just needs a weekend breather to put things about her future into perspective. I wouldn't have had the courage she had to hop on a train without telling anyone, for a surprise meetup with a friend.

I really enjoyed the dialogue between Trish

Finishing up reading this last week gave me the sweetest feeling. The author has done such a great job with yet another intriguing novella! I liked Trisha and Paul from the start but I especially love how they learn and grow. A novella you don't want to miss!
