Sincerely Yours is a book with 4 stories in it by 4 different authors. The authors are Jane Kirkpatrick, Amanda Cabot, Laurie Alice Eakes, and Ann Shorey.
I like books that have several stories in them. You may find a new author that you love or if you don’t like one of them the story isn’t long.
The stories in this book are titled Moonlight Promise by Laurie Alice Eakes. This one I didn’t care much for. The characters weren’t that likable and it seemed to drag in places.
The next one was called Lessons in Love by Ann Shorey. Another one I didn’t care much for because it seemed silly. Why would someone try to hide she is a woman just so she could write.
One Little Word by Amanda Cabot was one well written and one I enjoyed. I liked it because the characters didn’t let money or family inheritance get in the way of making them happy.
I just loved A Saving Grace by Jane Kirkpatrick. This is a story that I wish would be a lot longer, because it was so good. Jane knows how to write a romantic/suspenseful story that keeps your interest.
Overall this book is well worth reading and keeping. I do recommend it.
