Book Review by Bree Herron

Have you ever read a collection of books and wished that they tied in together? Beyond the basic genre similarity? This is the book collection for you then! Welcome to Arcadia Valley, where loved is growing.

This was a wonderful collection of stories that centered around Arcadia Valley, a charming place (wish it was real) for a reader to visit. Each story is able to be read as a stand alone, and I do believe most are continuing their tales for this charming collection. I was impressed by the quality of each story, and that no two stories were really alike. I felt swept away by the beauty of words, and imagery. One that I was particularly in love with was Sow in Love,By Valerie Comer.

“We long to gaze upon beauty… gardens overflowing with flowers in thousands of colors.”

Sow In Love is a charming tale of broken hearts needing healing and a garden center needing a new seed on life. I am crushing hard on the main man, Grady. Wow, is he a gem! I love Joanna and envisioned her to be a lot like me (great ability to place myself in leading ladies) with her questioning of moving on. One key point that Valerie Comer gives readers is the opportunity to read about making the world a better place, she focusing on green living, reusing and re-purposing. I loved this story line in this book because I wish we had such a center or opportunity in my area. Valerie also provides readers with a laugh out loud moment in at least every book and she didn’t fail on this one.

Each story is wonderful and within in the collection is the perfect romance for you!
