Have you heard about #tinyhouses? Everywhere I go, I see or hear about someone who’s looking at or bought a #tinyhouse! Bigger isn’t better where these 100 – 400 sq. ft. houses are concerned. And they aren’t as cramped as you’d think!
But I’m not reviewing tiny houses. I’m reviewing a collection of seven novellas written around the theme of “tiny houses.” (So if you spend $0.99 for this one book, you’ll get seven stories!)
ABOUT THE BOOK
Coming Home ~ A Tiny House Collection
Tiny houses are all the rage these days, but what can you do with something so small? Here are seven stories about people chasing their dreams, making fresh starts, finding love, stumbling upon forgiveness, and embarking upon new adventures in tiny houses. Travel with them around the country in this big novella collection.
Love is Sweeter in Sugar Hill by Ane Mulligan. She has a tiny house. He lives in a mansion. She vows to charge a doctor with malpractice. His job depends on that doctor’s finances. Will love find a way?
Kayla’s Challenge by Linda W. Yezak. She was one “I do” short of marrying the man her pushy parents chose for her. Now, half a country away, she needs a tiny house to finally be free.
If These Walls Could Talk by Pamela S. Meyers. Both claim to have inherited the same Queen Anne until an unexpected blessing changes everything.
First Love by Yvonne Anderson. Betrayed by her husband and desperate for healing, she can only move forward by going back home.
Dash of Pepper by Kimberli McKay. His responsibilities tie him to the small town he loves, but her career plans will lead her to the big city. Will he cut his roots for her or will she clip her wings for him?
Big Love by Michael Ehret. Homelessness expanded her world and constricted his. Now she needs his help, but he only remembers the pain. Can they find big love in a tiny house?
The Light Holding Her by Chandra Lynn Smith. Friends since childhood. She’s being stalked. He’s in danger. Is their faith big enough to carry them through the trials into a deeper relationship?
I loved this collection that runs the gamut from sweet romance to suspense, all centered around tiny houses. And as I said above, you can’t miss stories from these authors for only 99 cents! I actually enjoyed sitting in the doctor’s office for several hours, because I was finally able to sit and read a couple of stories from the collection.
Kimberli McKay’s Dash of Pepper, tickled me when I realized the play on words with the title. I love how McKay pulled me in immediately with the setting: a romantic dinner beside what’s left of River Falls, both the town and the waterfall. And with the first page, she had me. From the heroine with big dreams and her social media savvy mom to the hometown boy with big responsibilities, I worried, grinned, cackled and even cried.
Michael Ehret’s Big Love tackles the hard topic of homelessness, revenge, how memories change you and finally the biggie: forgiveness. He uses 1st person and 3rd person points-of-view, so if that bothers you, it may take a moment to get used to switching back-and-forth, but here’s a hint: if you see “I, me, or my,” it’s Berly’s (short for Timberly) story. If not, it’s Rafe’s story. And believe me, it’s worth reading.
And I can’t wait to read the rest! Do me a favor, if you read one or more of the stories in Coming Home, drop a comment and let me know how you liked it!
