I love this collection! It isn't to mushy or sing-songy. I can only describe it as light-hearted romance. It's real and relatable, it makes you feel good while giving the reader just enough drama to chew on. I absolutely recommend this to readers of fiction and romance. The angle that Heartland takes in her stories is almost the opposite of hard edged, I can't understand why more writers haven't tried this, but this writer pulls it off well. Tied for first place in my opinion would be A Morning to Meander and Courage in a Coffee Cup. Give this one a read and I'll bet you'll love this writer.
