    This was a great collection of stories My favorite was the first Clara and Neill's story and it frankly was not long enough My second favorite was Grace and Clayton's and I especially loved Andrew and Lucy The last story however lost the book a star by falling a bit flat The characters and plot had lots of potential but felt rushed and underdone For example we're told four times that Grace was a former teacher and is expecting but don't get to spend long enough with the characters to be told anything twice except that Mark's eyes are blue And normally I love Connealy stories

    I'm being generous here with 3 starsCan I just say that I normally love Karen Whittemeyer and Mary Conneally? I really do But this collaboration was disappointing There are four novellas so I will briefly review each in turnA Cowboy Unmatched by Karen Whittemeyer 2 StarsI think Karen must have whipped this one up on her lunch break Pregnant widow meets handsome handyman They fall in love and live happily ever after Seriously that's all you need to know I've just saved you two hours You're welcome If this is your first KW PLEASE read her others I don't feel like this is a good sampling of her work and Ive loved everything else she's doneAn Unforseen Match by Regina Jennings 5 StarsI loved this one Never read anything By Regina but this was good A school teacher has to start over when she loses her sight glaucoma? A scarred man hoping to earn enough money to continue on to the Land Rush accepts the offer to fix up the cabin barn that's been set aside for the blind woman especially since she can't see his face and judge him There's plenty of grit and determination in this story on the parts of both characters Theres longing and misunderstandings and its just very good My eyes pricked with tears a few times which is always a good signNo Match For Love by Carol Cox 2 StarsI'm sorry to say I skimmed this one Just did not hold my interest at all Young woman answers an advertisement to be 'companywatchdog' to someone's aunt who is starting to see things the cow jumping over the moon Is she getting dementia or is someone trying to scare her off her land? Don't know don't care NextMeeting Her Match by Mary Conneally 2 starsMary Mary what was this?I hardly know what to sayI'm blushing with embarassment Ok I'm being sarcasticYoung woman turned out of family home when father remarries Extreeeeeeemly shy bankers son is madly in love with said young woman but can never get up his courage to woo her Long story short the townspeople have to join forces to compromise them and force a wedding Seriously?

    I was so excited to hear about this book's release Mary Connealy and Karen Witemeyer are two of my favorite authors and I know that Regina Jennings and Carol Cox are also wonderful novelist This book is a little gold mine that's what it is Who wouldn't want to read four novellas written by such amazing women? I went into this book with high expectations and I wasn't disappointed I haven't read anything by Carol Cox or Regina Jennings but I have read several books by both Mary Connealy and Karen Witemeyer and they both have one thing in common; they both write fantastic western romance novels I couldn't think of a better collage of authors Their writing styles are similar but each have their own personal uirks I was also impressed by the other authors I have two new favorite authors to follow Now I'm usually not huge on reading novellas Not because they lack uality but because they're so short that you have to sueeze everything in at a ridiculously uick speed and that usually makes things seem a little rushed when it comes to the romance part How many people do you know that knew each other three days before they got married? Not many This book wasn't like that Now it did have a couple of marriages that happened rather uickly but it didn't come across as hasty The way it was worded made it seem somewhat realistic I may be a dreamer but nothing makes me want to barf than a silly and fickle girl falling for a guy in a matter of days and calling it love Gag That being said I think that the rest of it was very nicely written I loved how all the books had some small connection or another to the novella before it it made the transition between books much cleaner than it would have been had the stories been completely unrelated Another thing that I loved was how all the books fit into the ChristianWestern genre I'm from Texas and I have a love for all things Southern so a gentlemanly cowboy makes me go weak kneed I would highly encourage any lover of historical fiction western fiction and Christian fiction to pick up this bad boy at your nearest book store You won't be sorry

    I loved the first story by Karen Witemeyer I was anxious read about Neill Archer the youngest brother from her book Short Straw Bride which was wonderful A sweet relationship developed uickly between Neill and the strong Clara and the action from the plot was non stop There was a nice balance between moments of character development and romance and the excitement really moved the story forwardThe second story by Regina Jennings turned out to be my favorite The unusual premise was so interesting and the main characters so vivid Again several sweet moments between them as their relationship developed and the personality clashes kept things lively Great romantic tension and chemistryThe third story by Carol Cox was okay but the characters were not developed enough for me to feel an emotional connection to their story There didn't seem to be any reason for the main characters to fall in love other than that they were there and convenient The attraction was stated and then all the focus was on the mystery A three star rating for me on this one but the other stories were strong enough to carry the five star rating overall The last by Mary Connealy was a story of unreuited love full of emotion and tempered with a huge dose of humor as usual It was fun to read the story of the matchmaker and how the town conspired to make her match
