I probably read more books in one month than the average person reads in one year. Reading daily is a habit I picked up as a child; a time when you should be outside playing with other kids your age, but instead I had my nose in a book, letting my imagination guide me to a far away place. As an adult, life can be stressful and reading a good book is the perfect escape, well, at least for me it is. While I was occupied by a few freelance writing projects for the last few weeks, I did manage to read the anthology, Four Wedding and a Kiss, written by Margaret Brownley, Debra Clopton, Mary Connealy and Robin Lee Hatcher.

The first story is written by one of my favorite historical romance writers, Mary Conneally. Spitfire Sweetheart is centered on Maizy MacGregor, who happens to be responsible for injuring a local rancher, Rylan Carsten. With no other choice, she has to wait by his side as his so-called caregiver until his wounds are healed. Of course this is a romance, so it isn't too long until sparks arise between the two.

Robin Lee's Hatcher's tale, A Love Letter To The Editor, centers on journalist, Molly Everton, who writes a popular feature in the local newspaper. With her experience, she was hoping to be promoted to editor, but to her surprise, the position is given to the town's new resident, Jack Ludgrove. Molly is more than upset by his arrival and is determined to take his spot as editor, but there is one thing standing in her way – her true feelings for him.

A tornado destroyed Katie Pearl's ranch in A Cowboy For Katie by Debra Clopton. Rebuilding her home is not an easy task for a young woman to take on by herself, so she enlists the aid of the rough cowboy, Treb Rayburn, who is only planning on staying around long enough to save enough cash to buy a new horse.

Grace Davenport has had a string of bad luck in Courting Trouble by Margaret Brownley. Out of nowhere, her young son enlists the help of an attorney Brock Daniels to get his mother out from behind bars. Typically, Brock wouldn't take a case like this, but there is something about Grace that catches his eyes and he agrees to help.

Similar to the authors' past collaboration, A Bride For All Seasons, the four novellas in Four Weddings and a Kiss are well-written with enjoyable characters. Brownley, Clopton, Connealy and Hatcher are at the top of their game in the Christian romance genre and their writing skills shine in each captivating story. Overall, Four Wedding and a Kiss is an enjoyable anthology featuring four great western romances.
