Summer Brides Book Review

This book was made up of three short stories which I am interested in reading normally to get to know other authors but this book was specifically for the third story.  Summer Brides: The Borrowed Bride\A Bridge to Dreams\Sister of the Bride by Susan Wiggs and Sherryl Woods and Susan Mallery was the next book that I reserved to read from the Fools Gold series.  I started with the end of the book first which felt a little funny but I was in the middle of the series and wanted to make sure that I read this one which was earlier in the series.  I have read all the authors in the book and enjoyed their stories so the others were just a bonus.

The Borrowed Bride by Susan Wiggs
During her own bridal shower, Isabel Wharton is whisked away by past love Dan Black Horse to his retreat in the Cascade range. But returning to her Native roots, and Dan's loving arms, is harder than she ever imagined.

A Bridge to Dreams by Sherryl Woods
With her vacation plans foiled, Karyn Chambers realizes that her long-awaited escape must give way to staying at home in San Francisco. Little does she know her Prince Charming is right in her own backyard.

Sister of the Bride by Susan Mallery
When Katie McCormick finds out that her sister is marrying her ex, she finally agrees to a setup for the big day. To her surprise, Jackson is a catch. But when wedding catastrophe ensues, will their sparks fizzle or ignite into flames?

The first story was very interesting and makes me want to look into whether it is part of a series or not.  It was dealing with coming to grips with who Isabel actually was and stopping hiding her past.  Being Native American was part of Isabel's past and she was trying to push it into the past instead of dealing with the things that made her push it away.  The second book was a little more of a reach for me but still enjoyable.  Karyn's life is falling apart just when she thought it was looking up.  She does a great job of trying to find ther positive until she looses the money for her Hawaiian vacation when her old car breaks down.  She decides to get a fun convertible to have her new life start with her new car since her vacation fund was spent.  She ends up vacationing right in her home town and learning to look at everything a little differently.  The last book and the reason for me reading the book was great!!  I loved hearing the story of Katie and how she was rebuilding her life after her sister stole her boyfriend and she was working on dealing with their wedding day with the help of a family friend.  Jackson ends up being just the friend she needed.  There are lots of twists and turns to the stories but I don't want to give away anything here.  Make sure you pick up this book and see for yourself!!  I hope that you check out this book and others in the great Fools Gold series.  I am hoping that you like these short stories as much as I did!!
