Enjoyable Selection of Stories
4 stars By Kirsty Pearce, Dec 18 2017
The majority of this book a really good read, my favourite stories were:

The Cost of a Heart: Reading a sample of this story what convinced me to buy this book, it was a solid and enjoyable read. 

The Advocate: I really enjoyed this meeting of two head-strong personalities and how they ended up complimenting each other. 

Love in Store: I completely adored everything about this novella, from the unorthodox heroine, the hero's realistic personal journey back to faith, to the healing power of forgiveness, and the wonderfully insightful and compassionate preacher.

The Outcast's Redemption: The very real menace provided by the villains in this story a good counterpoint to the sweetness of the evolving romance.

Beside Still Waters: I was surprised by how much I ended up loving this story; the villains were suitably evil, the romance beautiful, and the sprinkles of humor throughout a great addition.

The Princess of Polecat Creek: A fun romp I would read again, but one that also fell unfortunately short in the realistic department with its rushed nature.

Love from Afar: Ultimately a sweet story about having the courage to love and express it.
