This is written by Mary Connealy and is a story that will mesmerize readers because of the young woman named Margaret, though she is referred to as Maizy.  Maizy is a woman who is strong-willed, speaks her mind, and helps her father run their ranch.  Since she tends to not follow directions, her actions caused harm to a nearby neighbor, and this is where the story takes off!  I don’t want to spoil the plot so all I can say is this is one character who I could totally relate to, and it was fun to read!
A Love Letter to the Editor
Here is tale shared with readers by author Robin Lee Hatcher.  A small town educated lady always assumed after her father retired from being editor that Molly would take the reins.  However, her father shatters that dream when he hires a man named Jack Ludgrove.  Molly has chased off many a suitor because they wanted her to fit into a certain mold, not appreciating the talents or personality of Molly.  Now, Molly tries to come up with a way to make Jack want to leave the town so she can become editor. What happens when she begins her attempts to dissuade him?
A Cowboy for Katie
Debra Clopton pens a story that tells the tale of how one traumatic event changes not only Katie’s life forever but Katie herself.  Katie is traumatized so much she is held captive by fear and chases away those who want to help her and some skunks who want nothing but her ranch.  However, when Katie hires Treb to build her a home knowing he won’t be staying sets the stage for what just might be healing for both Katie and Treb’s painful pasts.
Courting Trouble
Margret Connealy starts her story off with an attention grabbing situation when a young boy hires an attorney for his mother for 56 cents.  Jesse is 6 years old and knows that unless he gets a good lawyer for his mother he might never see her again.  Talk around town labels her as the Black Widow and tries to smear her character by causing folks to listen to tales instead of looking at facts.  The bond between the lawyer, Brock, and Jesse grows and maybe after the trial there can be a new future for all three.
I thoroughly enjoyed this compilation by these authors.  The writing is brilliant, entertaining and each has a unique flavor.  Wrapped around the four novellas is a tasty little mini tale that was very creative and very cute too; I loved it!  Whether you have read other stories by these authors or not, grab a copy of this book and just relax and enjoy.  It is well worth the time to do so!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
