3.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary Christian novellas in a summer setting July 20 2015
By Marlene H. - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Summer Dreams" is a contemporary Christian novella collection of four stories set in summertime. None of the authors except Tracie Peterson was previously known to me.

"Summer Breezes" by Veda Boyd Jones

Recent law school graduate Melina Howard returns home and signs up for a regatta. Her partner in the race drops out at the last possible minute. At the recommendation of an old-timer, Melina asks Blake Allen to fill in the gap. What neither of them realize until after the regatta has started, is that they are on the opposite sides of a feud that began two generations ago. . . .

*I enjoyed reading about a sailboat regatta. However, I didn't feel there was much basis for a romance, especially given that Melina had to work through her prejudices. Rating: 3 stars

"A la Mode" by Yvonne Lehhman

Heather Willis, a florist who specializes in decorations, has a new client: Tom Smith. Tom, an excellent customer, befriends Heather. However, he seems strangely hesitant to speak about anything remotely personal . . .

*I simultaneously was intrigued by the question of who Tom Smith is and put off by the fact that Heather feels she cannot trust him. I want to trust my hero! Again, I felt there was too small a basis for the developing romance. Rating: 3 stars

"King of Hearts" by Tracie Peterson

Elise Jost's perfect plans for graduating on time and being hired for the perfect job immediately after are totally messed up by an error by the college. She needs one more credit! She signs up for "Renaissance Appreciation" in the summer semester. Ian Hunter is the professor for her class, and is immediately interested in her. Elise has no room in her life for romance, as she will be moving away at the end of the course.

*I found it extremely unlikely that Ian would want to jump headlong into a romance while still Elise's professor. It's unprofessional, regardless of the fact that he justifies it with his unusual status of a near-guest instructor. I also find it unlikely that any recent college graduate would take kindly to being nagged for a date after expressing a lack of interest! It certainly wasn't all bad, but I was pretty unhappy with this one! Rating: 2 stars (However, it is fair to note that Tracie Peterson books are not my cup of tea.)

No Groom for the Wedding by Kathleen Yapp

Penny Blake is on a honeymoon: her sister's! She's a photographer, taking as many pictures as possible to document this important event. Dave Ramsey, a fellow passenger, is drawn to Penny's smile and zest for life. Penny feels she needs to ignore Dave and focus on the honeymoon, while Dave tries to convince her that she should take some time for herself. . . and for him! Rating: 4 stars

*I liked this one! I liked that Penny was overweight, and Dave never once referred to it in a negative way or suggested that she do something to lose weight. In this story, I felt the romance was more realistic and well done. I will be checking to see if Kathleen Yapp has anything available that I'd be interested in.

Overall rating for this collection: 3 stars.

This is a clean collection of Christian novellas.

Its great to be able to read books by Veda Boyd Jones. She has such a way with dialog and characters.
