All of these stories have been published in magazines in the past and I can understand that the author wants to bring them together and release them in this way. Unfortunately, the stories are so short that they don’t offer the opportunity for the author to display much of her storytelling skills and her wry look at life which are her trademark. All of the stories are elegantly written and beautifully done but none of them are particularly engaging and none of them read like a Trisha Ashley story – they could be written by almost any good romance writer.
I read this book in less than an hour and I don’t feel cheated because it was sold at a very cheap price (99p at the time of writing this review) – what I feel is slightly disappointed. I love this author’s work and I particularly like her unique look at life and her rather abrasive humour – none of that is really demonstrated in the stories. I would not have purchased the stories had they not been written by this author but the stories don’t reflect what I have come to understand to be her style of writing.
If you want a quick and delightful book of romantic short stories then this is the one for you but if you want a book of stories particularly written by Trisha Ashley then you too may be disappointed with this book.
My favourite stories were:
Melting Moments: - Katie has been set a condition by her fiance, David for setting a wedding date - she has to go to fatbusters meetings and lose weight. While attending these meetings she comes across an artisan's chocolate makers shop where she secretly indulges in a little treat after every meeting raising her spirits. She loses weight but does she still want to go ahead with this wedding when her fiance sets an unreasonable condition for marrying her and who is the lovely man with the liquid brown warm eyes (just like chocolate)? read this to find out . I am a chocaholic so loved reading this story.
Breaking the ice: - Following an argument Rosemary moves out of her boyfriend's place and into a caravan. She discovers that he has gone to see his family for Xmas/New Year so decides to move back in temporarily so that she can keep warm without his knowing. Whilst at his place rescuing some bird she slips, the ice cracks and she falls into freezing water. Her ex-boyfriend helps her out , he returns back home early because his nephews/nieces have mumps and unexpectedly rescues his girlfriend. He is a modern day Heathcliff so couldn't resist loving this one either.
Some of the other stories, I found just as I was getting into them they came to an end but then what did I expect these are called short stories for a reason :)
Perfect for the season.

Just what was needed on a cold, wet dreary day! A great collection of short stories by a fab author.Published 7 months ago by Gaming M
Nice short stories to dip into just enough for a small coffee break. Ideal for travelling - trouble with complete novels is getting too engrossed (Tricia Ashley has that affect)... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Kez B
A great read. You can't beat Trisha Ashley's books. They have romance, humour that is down to earth, and characters you can visualise. Looking forward to her next book.Published 10 months ago by Lyn Edwards
