Review: Pushing the Envelope

Pushing the Envelope Pushing the Envelope by Kim Dare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love how this story brings two people together. The letter gives Scott the courage to live out some of his fantasy with Joe. Then the letters continue to help them communicate when they can't find the words. I love how all of these were pulled together into one book. This was so much fun to read and even more emotion that I had expected at first.

Review: A Matchless Man

A Matchless Man A Matchless Man by Ariel Tachna
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Navashen has worked hard to be successful in his life and work. He is now back in his home town and is willing to take on the care of his brother to help him have the best life possible. But he is also ready to be out and to find a life for himself as well.

Brent is an old classmate but is willing to do his best to help put his old friend. I love how Brent wants to help Navashen be comfortable with himself. It was also humorous to see this two men dance around each other. Brent trying to be helpful in setting up dates and Navashen not doing anything to make things work.

Review: Little Lizzie's Reform

Little Lizzie's Reform Little Lizzie's Reform by Allison West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story was a 3.5 overall. For me the story started out a bit slowly as we watched Elizabeth make a foolish choice that leads to her meeting Thomas Montgomery. He feels a connection to her but still arranges for her to go to the school. But when she gives the school the slip Thomas is smart enough to work things around to his own advantage.

I think the real turning point is the story is what happens when Elizabeth has a true chance to think about her old life and her new life as Little Lizzie. It helps her to finally settle on her decisions.

I really loved how much Thomas seemed to care but there was some of the interaction with the nanny that made me wonder if the best was being done for little Lizzie. As the relationship develops between Thomas and as time goes on with the nanny I felt like a happy and wonderful life for all involved.

Review: Sunny's Safe Haven

Sunny's Safe Haven Sunny's Safe Haven by Vanessa Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story seems to be full of upset and different crisises. Despite the dramatic opening to the story there is a feeling of strong connection between Stephanie and Tey. He is willing to change his whole set of life goals to now include settling down. Stephanie despite all the hardship she has recently faced is not willing to just sit back and let life happen to her. She is willing to work toward her own future.

This story has some unexpected twists and times when things seemed to go one way then back another. It takes a bit of working out between them and some more dramatic events but in the end there is love and a completely new life.

Review: Topaz's Trials

Topaz's Trials Topaz's Trials by Kate Richards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another unique story to add to this great Red Petticoat collection.

This story is unique as much of the story takes place as Topaz the former Marie Therese O'Sullivan recalls what brought her to the Saloon in the first place. It also lets her tell the people she cares about why no matter what there is a sadness in her soul that won't go away.

She endures so much on her journey and the reflections let feel the full range of her emotions from coping, to happiness, to love, to fear, and to dispare.

Dirk is a strong man with strong ideas but he is smart enough to realize that truth, love, and not knowing are enough to get over anything that will keep him from grabbing love with both hands.
