chance of loving you

Chance of Loving You – Terri Blackstock, Candace Calvert, Susan May Warren – Tyndale House Publishers – Published 1 May 2015



An anthology by three bestselling romance authors

For Love of Money by Terri Blackstock
Trying to launch her own design firm while waitressing on the side, Julie Sheffield was drawn to the kind man she waited on at the restaurant last night . . . until he stiffed her on the tip by leaving her half of a sweepstakes ticket.

The Recipe by Candace Calvert
Hospital dietary assistant Aimee Curran is determined to win the Vegan Valentine Bake-Off to prove she’s finally found her calling. But while caring for one of her patients—the elderly grandmother of a handsome CSI photographer—Aimee begins to question where she belongs.

Hook, Line & Sinker by Susan May Warren
Grad student Abigail Cushman has agreed to enter the annual Deep Haven fishing contest. She’s a quick learner, even if she doesn’t know the difference between a bass and a trout. But nothing could prepare her for competing against the handsome charmer she’s tried to forget since grief tore them apart.

One chance for each woman to change her life . . . but will love be the real prize?

My thoughts

This anthology is a great way to be introduced to three very talented writers, or for fans to enjoy a small sample from each.

In Terri Blackstock’s novella Julie and Blake could never have imaged the road their lives would take when Blake leaves Julie half a sweepstake ticket as a tip. This story was crazy. Crazy and hilarious. One minute getting along, the next yelling at each other, Julie and Blake are thrown together, but they will have to determine if they are meant to be together or if money will get in their way.

Candace Calvert’s novella takes readers to San Diego Hope Hospital where dietary assistant Aimee assembles hospital food trays and dreams of a life of fine cuisine and masterful cooking. But when her dreaming (and garnishing) lands her in trouble, Aimee finds herself assisting ailing patient Mrs Marchal, and rather attracted to Mrs Marchal’s son, Lucas. I love Candace’s writing – the setting, tone and characters. This is a great short story, so characteristic of Candace’s writing.

I had previously read Susan May Warren’s novella Hook, Line and Sinker, but was very happy to read it again. I love anything and everything she writes. Abigail lost both the Springer brothers the day Scotty died. Now Abigail has a chance to win back her rights as a leader of the evangelic youth group, and maybe one last chance to show Ross Springer that he was always the brother for her. Bring on the fishing.

The publishers provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
