Editor's Review:
     Each of these stories leaves the reader wishing it would continue, yet eager for the next. From teen to seniors, we can all relate to these stories. The characters are realistic and the plots are believable. The fast pace and smooth delivery leaves the reader wishing they were longer, but each is a well rounded story.
     This is an ideal book to keep on the night stand. Each story has an upbeat ending and a positive message. The stories all promote building healthy and lasting relationships where the partners are not only lovers, but friends as well.
     These stories are clean and suitable for any age group. This is a romance book readers would feel comfortable about having in plain sight when the pastor visits.
     Rigsbee first gained popularity with her clean romance books, but she is actually a multi-genre writer. These short stories are good samples of her writing.
