The town is situated on a lake Lake Zurich , which is very small town to me. I have one student at one of our elementary schools, one in middle school, and I am the librarian at the high school. I love the close-knit feel of our community, which is what gives it that small-town vibe. For Oak Bluff, the town at the center of my Crossroads Ranch series, I wanted that same vibe and then some. Naturally, I drew inspiration from my favorite fictional small town, the one where I wish I could live if only it were real… Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls. Which is why I wanted to write a series with the vineyard as a backdrop and to end the series with one of the Everett brothers getting married at said vineyard.
Inheriting the vineyard from their late father was the catalyst for the three brothers to find their way back to each other and also find love along the way. I said psychic chicken. No one has romantic intuition quite like Lucy. And even though the Crossroads Ranch series is coming to an end, Lucy and Aunt Jenna will pop back onto the page in my upcoming Meadow Valley Ranch series soon!

Her other best fiend joins the war efforts as well and now both men are gone. Julian is missing and they think he is dead. Willow fights her mom to wait and wait but then decides she better marry her best friend if Julian is never coming home. Will it be too late for real love? I like this story the most I think as the author brings out some issues the slaves had at that time. We see a family split apart and Willow trying to bring them back together.

The obstacles they overcome and the relationship they share makes my heart swoon.
Each story took me a little over an hour to read, which made the weeks when I didn't have time for a full-on book at least bearable. With all collections, you have a mix of writing styles and skill levels, but this one had more than I am accustomed to as far as did not appeal to me. I do still recommend it, if only for the few mentioned in What I Love. I was in no way required to leave a review, and the above review is my honest opinion.

I normally am not a huge fan of these types of stories where the couple was together and then comes back after many years , but the ones I've read so far in this collection have been great.

They are united by themes of second chances, restoration, trust and the love of a Father whose timing is always perfect. A really charming collection. I could not pick a favourite as they were all delightful. First Things First by Susanne Dietz is delightful.
It is about second chances, the love of a family, trust and having correct priorities. God needs to be first in our lives, everything will then slot into place. The story also shows we are not destined to repeat the sins of our parents and cannot be held responsible for them.

This story is amusing at times and warms the reader's heart. Weeping Willow by Marcia Gruver is a wonderful story about love, loss, loyalty and hope. Set during the American Civil War it has its focus on the cruelty of slavery that divided the north and south. The forward thinking, big hearted heroine realises that slavery is wrong.
Her love for her childhood servants is huge. She realises that the old order of things is wrong. My favourite quote was "She up and ran off with Jesus.

Being a big fan of all Carrie Fancett Pagels novels, it was wonderful to have familiar faces pop up from other books.
The story is about love and caring for family. The reader is reminded of the command to take care of the widows and orphans. A mysterious benefactor brings a smile to the reader's face. Positively wonderful. After The Ball by Martha Rogers is a wonderful light romance about knowing and following your heart and being true to yourself.

My favorite stories were Lighter Than Air by Lorna Seilstad about a hot air balloonist and a school principal and Heartfelt Echoes by Jennifer Uhlarik about a deaf couple which had the added bonus of being a follow up story to one of my favorite stories from a previous collection The Courageous Bride Collection. Nice stories and an interesting spin, ranging a wide variety of time spans and places. Only draw back for me was with so much separation, the reason for couples that really loved each other to be apart for as long as 15 years, was too often a dumb misunderstanding.
Some were things like war, and that is realistic but just assumptions and letting someone you deeply love go because you won't for example talk to them was frustrating. I am also finding that the stories are cut a little short even for short stories in that as soon as you find out the couple is going to end up together the story ends I know they are going to end up together but I want to read about their romance!
Still great short stories with endearing characters.
