Love’s Surprise is a compilation of three stories connected by the common themes of holidays and love! Although the stories are different, they seamlessly tie together and the characters continue their journey from one novella right into the next. Animal lovers will be happy to find several furry friends included along the way.
In the first story, readers meet a grieving widow with well-meaning children who want to see her happy again. In the next story, readers meet a successful attorney who makes a living by ruining the lives of others. In the final story a team of sisters set out on a matchmaking experiment in an effort to find the perfect man for their niece. These three stories contain fun, quirky characters that seem to go from one mishap to another and readers get to go along for the ride. If you enjoy light hearted, humorous fiction this would be a great book to get a hold of.
In this collection of three whimsical and fresh stories of romance in unusual settings, Karen Ball's writing will delight readers of all ages and in every season. Infused with love, tenderness and humor, the stories are threaded together with common characters and themes.
The protagonist in "Valentine's Surprise" has been unlucky in love, so her sisters conspire and set her up with a blind date they're sure will be "The One." The date is surprisingly successful...until she discovers she went out with the wrong man!
In "Jericho's Walls," a widow's grown children try to forestall her annual April Fools' Day depression. They trick her into pet-sitting a ferret, and talk her into a major house renovation-to be done by the good-looking but distant Jericho Katz, whose spouse also has died. But can you help someone who doesn't think she wants it?
"An Unlikely Angel" is the story of a very successful lawyer who believes he's got everything he wants and needs in life. Then a charming but destructive Siberian Husky turns up. The man comes to learn what is truly valuable, with help from an even more charming and quirky girl-next-door, and the gentle nudge of...an angel?
