I normally am not a fan of novellas, but these four were not your normal novellas. I really enjoyed them.
I must say that you are going to want to dive into them and see which one is your favorite. I will share mine The Legacy of Love and The Treasured Book, Duh of course you know I'm going to love that one and the Midwife's Dream I read them all in one sitting one evening.
This book was a 4 star book. I recommend giving it a try.
Clipston, Kelly, and Fuller did not disappoint.
