Four novellas by Margaret Brownley, Robin Lee Hatcher, Mary Connealy, and Debra Clopton, Four Weddings and a Kiss is a collection of stories told by different ministers to a young, single minister who’s trying to figure out his love life. The stories occur in different places and in different situations, but the results are the same: potentially mismatched couples who find love and happiness together.
I picked up this book because I’ll read anything by Mary Connealy. The only other time I’ve read Brownley, Hatcher, and Clopton was when they were in another collection of novellas with Connealy. As was the case with the first book, I couldn’t put this down. Each story captured my attention. Even though I knew how each novella would end (they are, after all, romances), the authors created wonderful little stories with fun twists along the way. I knew where the stories would end, but I didn’t necessarily see how the characters would get there, and I like that in a romance.
Unlike some novella collections I’ve read (where the stories seem to be half-hearted attempts by the authors to create short stories), these novellas are as captivating and well-written as their longer contemporaries. A fun, easy read for any lover of historical romance.
