When I’m in the mood for a short story I usually reach two different directions. One is toward eBooks, where often I’ve been finding a freebie here and there, and then the other direction is toward the newer oversize books from the Barbour Romance and Brides collections. Now a third and fourth option have popped up in from Thomas Nelson and Revell Books. The one to tell you about today is from Revell Books. Take two authors I adore and two authors I enjoy, and combine all four of them in one novella collection and you have a great book pile for anytime. It’s an especially great read for the spring holidays coming up if you’re traveling and need a short read.
Jumping right into the first story, “Moonlight Promise” was a great read. Romantic and enchanting with a bit of mystery and adventure. Each other story was found to be a good read as well. I hope that this is the first of many novella collections from Revell Books. It is a great start. It seems to me you can never get enough of a good author’s stories be it long or short.
