Chance of Loving you By: Terri Blackstock, Candace Calvert & Susan May Warren

Back of the book

An anthology by three bestselling romance authors

For Love of Money by Terri Blackstock 
Trying to launch her own design firm while waitressing on the side, Julie Sheffield was drawn to the kind man she waited on at the restaurant last night . . . until he stiffed her on the tip by leaving her half of a sweepstakes ticket.

The Recipe by Candace Calvert Hospital dietary assistant Aimee Curran is determined to win the Vegan Valentine Bake-Off to prove she’s finally found her calling. But while caring for one of her patients—the elderly grandmother of a handsome CSI photographer—Aimee begins to question where she belongs.

Hook, line & Sinker by Susan May Warren Grad student Abigail Cushman has agreed to enter the annual Deep Haven fishing contest. She’s a quick learner, even if she doesn’t know the difference between a bass and a trout. But nothing could prepare her for competing against the handsome charmer she’s tried to forget since grief tore them apart.

One chance for each woman to change her life . . . but will love be the real prize?

My Thoughts

As an anthology I love the stories, and while they all shared a mutual theme they were each different and entertaining.  Click on the authors name to view their website.

For Love of Money by Terri Blackstock
    The basic idea of a lottery ticket as a tip is not new, the rest of the story was all its own.  Both Characters are entertaining and I found parts of myself in both of them.  This book has a great plot that really asks us if money can buy happiness.

The Recipe by Candace Calvert
    The recipe has some great scenes that I found really entertaining, and the contrasting personalities between Aimee and Lucas were wonderful.  It has a few choppy sections but they did not detract from the story.

Hook, line & Sinker by Susan May Warren
     This book was released in 2011 as an ebook, but is definitely worth being printed.  Hook, line & sinker is a wonderful story, it has great characters and a perfect conclusion.  Even though this is a short novel it has all the plot and depth of a full length book.

This anthology was wonderful and I look forward to reading it again and again.

I was given this book Free from Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review.
