Wedding Belles - Anthology

Synopsis: A series of novellas with interconnecting plot points and characters. Each is a stand alone but each builds on events in the previous story. Beginning with the event planner for an upcoming wedding, then the musician, followed by the maid of honor, and ending up with the photographer.

Review: Probably one of the best anthologies I've come across in a long time. Each story is written by a capable author and each holds its own. Often, anthologies include stories that aren't all up to snuff and occassionally just one saves the rest. Not the case here. Each couple is as well developed and engaging as the next. They've done an excellent job of interweaving details but keeping them independent and satsifying in and of themselves. There's always a love hate with a novella you end up liking. You wanted a quick read but then you fall in love with the couple and you want to know more. Not so much with this collection. The authors have all done an exceptional job of giving you a complete and endearing story. In fact, each of their couples is so much fun to follow that you can only hope they create a few spin-off stories with other characters from their stories. You can tell it's a great anthology when you have a hard time deciding which couple is your favorite. And, in this case, it may prove difficult to actually pick one.

Amazon: $3.99
