Sincerely Yours Book Review
I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes from the Revell Book Blogger Program. Sincerely Yours is a novella collection of about four young women and their path to finding love. It’s a great book for someone who’s looking a special read. Since it’s four different stories you can read at your own pace and start on any story you like. I will say though once you start reading this book you won’t want to stop all the ladies did an excellent job with their stories and they all draw you in.
Author: Jane Kirkpatrick, Amanda Cabot, Laurie Alice Eakes, and Ann Shorey
About the Book & My Thoughts
Four unexpected letters. Four intrepid women. Four lives changed forever.
Spanning a century and a continent, these romantic novellas will lead you on a journey through the landscape of love. Four young women find their lives altered after each receives a letter that sets her on a new path. From a Hudson River steamboat to a lush drawing room, from a carousel carver’s workshop to a remote hospital, you’ll be swept into the lives of women who are making their way in the world and finding love where they least expect it.
Moonlight Promise by Laurie Alice Eakes
Camilla Renfrew is a highborn English lady fleeing false accusations when she runs smack into love on a steamboat bound for the new Erie Canal. But can this unexpected attraction survive the treacherous journey?
Lessons in Love by Ann Shorey
Marigold Montgomery Bentley writes marriage advice for Kipler’s Home Weekly even though she is single. Everyone assumes from the initials that “M. M.” is a man. When the editor asks to meet Mr. Bentley, can Merrie come up with a ruse to keep her writing job?
One Little Word by Amanda Cabot
Lorraine Caldwell will lose her family fortune to a reckless cousin if she doesn’t marry quickly. When she learns her long-lost brother is alive, she hopes she’s found the answer to her problems. What she finds instead is a mysterious carousel carver who turns her life upside down.
A Saving Grace by Jane Kirkpatrick
Grace Hathaway must rescue a dear friend from a remote and notorious clinic that promises healing but delivers only heartache. In a place laced with deceit, where lives hang in the balance, whom can she trust to help her?
I really enjoyed reading this book of novella. I got to enjoy four new authors and four wonderful stories. I really enjoyed getting to know Camilla and her adventures on the steamboat with her captain. Who doesn’t love a good romance and a good scandal all at once. While on the run to protect herself from a false accusation she finds herself on this unexpected journey. Oh and I found it fun to take a look back into Merrie’s life and see how life could be for women in this era. I really enjoyed One Little Word because of how well it described the details and work involving creating a carousel. It’s a very nice story and I really enjoyed the character’s romance. The final story is the book is a bit different as we visit a remote hospital and while the setting is not romantic as the others it’s a great story as well because we get to enjoy some mystery and a bit of crazy.
I love happy endings and I think that’s what ultimately drew me in with these novellas and if you are like me you will love these stories. Author Jane Kirkpatrick is hosting a giveaway on her blog for the novel. Hurry though because it’s ending tomorrow.
