Ask Me Why is an anthology consisting of four novellas from four great authors. Marie Force, Jodi Thomas, Shirley Jump and Virginia Kantra have teamed together to create this.
The first story is You'll Be Mine by Marie Force. If you are a fan of her Green Mountain Series, you will not want to miss this fabulous read. You meet Will and Cameron in the first book of the series and this story contains their wedding. True to form, you are guaranteed to laugh, cry and feel a wide range of emotions as Marie's story unfolds. The best part about this story is there are many snippets for future stories to be told from this novella. I can't wait for more of the Green Mountain stories!
The second novella is Midnight Bet by Jodi Thomas. It's about two cousins, Rick and Lizzy Matheson who find themselves in trouble when someone attempts to shoot at them. The problem is that both of them think the bullet was intended for them and they don't want to cause more problems for the other.
The third novella is Wrapped Around Your Finger written by Shirley Jump. In this story you meet Maggie McBride and Nick Patterson. Maggie is the opposite of a southern debutante. She prefers to work hard, get her hands dirty and has her mind set on being a contractor. She tried to fit into the mold of being a homemaker once, but was left with nothing but a broken heart. For the sake of her best friend, she is determined to be a girly girl for her wedding. She will primp, put on a dress and even risk heels to make her happy. She even goes as far as taking a dare and bring Nick Patterson as her date to the wedding. But will it all be part of a game or will she let down the walls she has managed to build around her heart? Wrapped Around Your Finger made me laugh as well as cry. I could not get enough of these characters.
The last book in the anthology is Carolina Heart, written by Virginia Kantra. It is a story that grips at your heartstrings. In this story you meet Cynthie Lodge and Max Lewis. She is a single mother of two preteen girls. She is works hard and is going back to school to be a dental hygienist. The last thing she has time for is any form of social life for herself. When she meets Max, he is nothing like she expects. But will make her change her mind?
I enjoyed reading this entire anthology. You will not be disappointed when you read it. All authors kept my attention and made me want for more!
