CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Firstly let me say I chose to review the first story in this bundle. I enjoyed the story-line, finding it original and the characters well-developed for a short read. However, I must also state, I found several editing errors which need to be corrected; they did not hamper my enjoyment of the story.
Quaid’s a typical cowboy, strong, determined, and at a loose as to women. As he and Pepper become closer, the reader finds a considerate kind man behind the cowboy exterior. You will love Pepper and Quaid.
Pepper’s character’s strong and determined as she sets out to care for Mr. McDaniels. Boy, was he a piece of work. When he threw the hot coffee on her back, I would have knocked him one. Not kind, Pepper; she became more determined to get him out of the bed and active. Then a crisis occurs which will change everything.
Including 15 other wonderful stories, I would hesitate to buy this book for my self or a friend.
MARRIAGE BY PROXY RECOMMENDATION: STARS 3
I had to cut the stars from 4 to 3 due to editing. However, the book is still a wonderful bargain and entertaining read.
