My personal Rating-
I thought the whole market theme was fun, but I for sure (and certain! Haha.) have a favorite and the my line-up is:
“Love Birds” by Amy Clipston was the best one in this novella collection, in my honest opinion! I probably really enjoyed it because it’s connected to the author’s new series which I’m eagerly waiting book #2! (You can see review of the first book, Here!) Ellie & Lloyd were soooo cute!
While there was a lot of kisses, Kathleen Fuller’s novella “A Bid for Love” was highly sweet and cute.
“Love in Store” by Vannetta Chapman was different from the rest with it’s mystery aspect and an older couple. While not relatable for teens, it was still good.
And finally, “Sweeter Than Honey” by Kelly Irvin. Since I have not read any of this authors books connected to this novella (The Amish of Bee Keeper Country series), it left me very confused and lost. The family tree at the beginning didn’t help at all either, so I really didn't enjoy this novella. 
Just a note, the cover is really cute! Hahaha! ;)


See y’all on Monday with a new review! :)
