Each of these stories has a touch of the ridiculous in them. But I think that was the challenge in writing them. Can you write a story that's partly ridiculous and still make it good? I think that Lynn has.
The Three Wise Ghosts: This is where you first meet the matchmaking Boar's Head Trio, as they're named in several of Lynn's other books. Yes, it's ridiculous to think of a CEO wearing curly-toed shoes and tights... but if you're going to write a story with ghosts, why make them go by our rules? They were the ones pulling the strings here, you know.
The Ghost of Christmas Past: This is Miles de Piaget's story. The talking cat (on Christmas Eve only, of course) is the matchmaker in this one. This story is much simpler than most of Lynn's stories... you get the feeling that there should have been so much more to the story, if only there hadn't been a page limit. It's still good, though, and gives you another glimpse into one of Rhys and Gwen's kids.
And The Groom Wore Tulle: Not many people would think of starting a story with an almost starved highlander in a modern bridal shop. But that's what Lynn did, and she did it well! It might be too much for some readers (as they've written here) that Ian stuffed himself into a bridal gown... but whose to say what YOU would do if you were thrust into the future while so close to death that you likely wouldn't have all of your wits about you? Add to that the fact that most people in medieval times were superstitious, and it's believable enough to be funny.
The Icing On The Cake: This story takes a woman who is so much the out-doorsy-type that she can't cook much of anything ... and a man who is everything that she isn't in the house, and nothing that she is out of it... and then she sticks them in the same house together unexpectedly. I'm actually not too fond of this story, as their falling in love seems more dependant on sexual chemistry and good looks then on character. I like a story where people fall in love with who a person is, rather than what they look like, and Lynn's usually fantastic that way. Oh well.
