This is an outstanding collection of novellas. I enjoyed each and every one. Highly recommend. Consistent quality throughout by many of CBA's most beloved authors! I received a free download from NetGalley and was glad to read the collection before it released from Barbour Publishing.
"Last Stop, Cordelia" by Lisa Carter. Lady journalist on the transcontinental railroad line runs straight into danger. Fantastic romance! Lisa hit a home run with this story!
"Train to Eden" by Ramona Cecil. After a railroad accident, amnesia strikes the heroine. A compelling story.
"Love on the Rails" by Lynn Coleman. This is a really cool and unique story. I’ve not seen another novella quite like it. Set in Savannah, in the 1880s, a desperate young woman comes South as a mail order bride. While the hero is a nice man, his obsessive trails, including working all the time, may derail this marriage before it ever gets started. A great story about how love requires work. We're featuring Lynn this week on the Overcoming with God blog.
"The Honeymoon Express" by Susanne Dietze. Female telegraph operator heads out west but ends up on a train with newlyweds. Cute story! I love Susie Dietze's writing and tell her I'm one of her "fan girls" of her lovely writing.
"Just for Lucy" by Kim Vogel Sawyer. Orphan train transporter learns the little girl with her has no home, once she arrives. She carries the child on to her resistant and single uncle. Very sweet romance.
"My Soul Waits" by Connie Stevens. Stuck in a small town, when she fails to board the train, the heroine must find a new course to take. Solid story.
"World's Greatest Love" by Liz Tolsma. Very compelling and unique story. The characters in this story really came to life as a seamstress with a traveling circus train is set up by her antagonist to lose the job she must keep. This story will remain with the reader long after it ends.
