My Review

It amazes me how much emotion can be depicted within 100 words. Each story is unique and entertaining; filling the reader with hope, laughter, and even a touch of sadness, as is the case in Never Stop Asking by James J. Cudney where a couple in love never quite get to the married stage.

I laughed at Lessons in Cupid by Kaitlyn Sutey where Cupid retires and his successor learns creating love matches is not as easy as it seems.

Another favorite was Puppy Love by Barbara Venkataraman. She skillfully guides us through a sweet new love affair between an aristocrat and a guy who feels out of her league only to discover they’re dogs in the end.

We met at the park and it was love at first sight. High-spirited and playful, Josie had long copper tresses shining like the sun.
