Truly, Madly, Deeply

From wedding days to special anniversaries, steamy one night encounters to everlasting loves, Truly, Madly, Deeply takes you on an exciting romantic adventure where love really is all you need. This collection brings together 24 specially-selected works from bestselling authors including Adele Parks, Katie Fforde, Carole Matthews and Miranda Dickinson

24 wonderful short stories that allow you to delve into the imagination of some of our favourite authors.

I love short stories, they allow you to spoil yourself with a great mix of characters and locations.
Of course, that's when they are written in such a way that you feel as though you've been pulled into another world and throughout this anthology, you certainly get that feeling!

All 24 were lovely stories, not one of them did I dislike.
But some really stood out for me.

Adele Parks: A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet, was a lovely start to the book, it captivated me and delivered an ending I hadn't foreseen.
I loved Miranda Dickinson's: Love On Wheels, which was a beautifully written story that shows us we should always listen & never give up.
Another great story was Kate Harrison's, Life of Pies.

I also really enjoyed A Sensible Proposal by Anna Jacobs, this is the first I've read of hers, even though my mum is an avid Anna Jacobs reader.
What I found great is that as I started to tell my mum about the story I was reading, my mum knew the characters.
So for new readers, a wonderful short story but for fans of her books, a chance to catch up with friends!

A wonderful read that you can dip in and out of, or settle on the sofa and devour in one!

5/5

A big thank you Cara at Harlequin for sending me a copy to review.
