I really enjoyed them. I would recommend them if you want a little dose of love without an overbearing plot and a lot of drama. It's nice to read love stories that give you the warm fuzzies. There is not a lot of detail or development, very fairytale like quality. It's a good pick me up--and I love that, even though the stories are short, it's a collection of three of them!

Will Shelia be able to find the doll before it is gone forever?
Wendy Campbell thinks her father is the only man she needs in her life. But after he fakes 911 calls to get a certain paramedic Kyle Roger, to their home, will Wendy finally realize that she needs a life of her own?
As always, my gripe with Brunstetter is that her her stories are more like fairy tales; simplistic in language, bordering on unbelievable, and at times childish. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the stories in this book, but while many good books get you believe in the characters, Brunstetter just delivers a story. It is names, places and events put together, which I know will happen in a short story where things need to move very fast. While it is a nice collection of romances, it still falls flat like bread without yeast. I enjoyed it for what it was; an easy read with likable, (albeit fake) characters. A good book will make the line between fact and fiction blurry, if not obsolete. But all Brunstetter was able to accomplish is feel-good, trite romances that fail to draw you in and completely loose yourself.
