It's Summer Reading Time! Book #1

It's no secret, I LOVE summer reading time. Sitting in a comfortable chair, letting the sun tan my skin, waves gently rolling on the lake, kids frolicking nearby, perhaps a nice cold adult beverage easily at hand.....

Don't get me wrong, I love spring, fall and winter reading time too... but summer holds a special place in my sun starved heart!

Recently I scored a reviewers trifecta from PTA (not the school parent organization) and todays book is the first one I read in my most recent shipment....

Each and every one of us has the ability to effect change—to make our world a better place. The dedicated women selected as this year's recipients of Harlequin's More Than Words award have changed lives, one good deed at a time. To celebrate their accomplishments, some of our bestselling authors have honored the winners by writing stories inspired by these real-life heroines.
In Carly Phillips's Compassion Can't Wait, two high school sweet hearts are reunited years later, as if by fate, and discover that if you believe in yourself and each other, anything is possible.
Donna Hill's Someplace Like Home tells the story of how one woman's dream becomes reality, as three special people learn that it's never too late to form a loving family.
In Jill Shalvis's What the Heart Wants, an honorable man must learn to forgive himself to regain the trust of the dedicated teacher who is the love of his life.

My Take:

I really enjoyed these short stories from some of my favorite authors. All excellent stories based or inspired by real people who are heroines in the community. A fantastic selection for the beach, treadmill, or curled up on the couch it should come with a warning to pack tissues though.
