12 Brides of Summer by Margaret Brownley, Miralee Ferrell, and Pam Hillman ~ Review

The 12 Brides of Summer - Novella Collection #3Lucie's Review:

Three stories with touches of humor and filed with faith.

Dog Days of Summer finds Marilee Davis, the music teacher, and Jed Colbert, the blacksmith sharing a dog even though they've never met. Marilee calls the dog Mozart, and wonders where he is always disappearing to every weekend. Jed raised Dynamite from a puppy, but he's too busy to notice that he's never around during the week. When they find out about their unknowingly sharing the dog, it leads to plenty of humorous adventures, and funny situations, with great interaction. It ended up being my favorite of the collection.

Grace Addison is a tomboy who climbs trees and rides astride, also lending a hand when she can with her neighbors, even befriending 8 year old Laura. Will Montgomery blames himself for Laura's mother's death, and he is not a fan of Laura's wanting to be just like Grace. But with some humor and understanding they may be able to come to an agreement!

Lucy and her father have just moved to a lumber camp from the city of Chicago. Eli Everett saves Lucy from a falling tree. He shows Lucy the beauty of nature, but wonders if he is good enough for a girl like her. Will love win the day?

Overall, a terrific collection of wonderful stories. I enjoyed the variety of the settings, and how all of the wonderful stories had great side characters who gave great advice about faith and family. Great read!
