    1. Srivalli Rekha on said:

      I love reading anthologies. The diversity of stories or ideas all the while staying connected to the main theme is always exciting to read. One thing all these stories have in common is family. I've read works of all the three authors before and they write some really cool stuff. The Borrowed Bride: The story was well paced with right emotions though I felt the ending was a bit abrupt. It is Susan Wiggs after all. She writes emotions so well! I liked how Isabel gradually got to understand that s [...]

      The Borrowed Bride" by Susan WiggsDNF. I read 3 pages and got bored silly, flip to the last chapter, didn't even like the ending. Glad I skipped it."A Bridge to Dreams" by Sherryl Woods -- 4/5This is a very cute read. Karyn Chambers is 26 and has been smothered by her loving family for all her life. She's got 5 overprotective older brothers who try to shelter her as much as they can. But all she wants is independence.After her car bites the bullet and dies, Karyn is forced to give up her vacatio [...]

      This volume was a wonderful surprise. My experience with multi-author books has been mixed. Usually I enjoy some of the stories and don't like others, but this book contained 3 very enjoyable stories. The real surprise is that the stories relate to each other in the way these 3 great authors handle their characters. I would like to have met and become friends with each of the heroines and would like to have been friends with each hero. Nice, fast paced read.I rate it a 4.5.

    4. Darcy on said:

      This book was fun to read. I have read things by Wiggs and Mallery before, but Woods was a new author. I am a big Wiggs fan, but for me her story was the weakest in the bunch. Woods story had me wishing for a white knight to come and save me like that too. While Mallery's story had me laughing with all the crazy family antics. If I was in that family I think I would move very far away!

    5. Patti K on said:

      2.5 stars. I got this one because I wanted to read Katie's story from Susan Mallery and this was the best way to do it. I figured I could get a little exposure to a couple other authors at the same time. So, the overall collection gets 2.5 stars. The individual reviews follow.The Borrowed Bride by Susan WiggsI really, really wanted to like this one. I loved the fact that the two main characters are Native American and that made me want to like it more. But alas, I just couldn't get into it. I tr [...]

      Cute little quick read, nice that it's set in the summer when it's so cold outside!!

      I primarily bought this book for the "Fool's Gold" novella by Susan Mallery since I've really been enjoying the "Fool's Gold" series. I ended up really enjoying all three novellas, though. This is a nice set of contemporary romance stories.The Borrowed Bride by Susan WiggsSeries Note:Unknowna standalone, I believe. Note: This story is a reprint, originally published in 1996. I believe Wiggs did some edits to it before this reprinting.Summary:After a bad childhood, Isabel Wharton left behind her [...]

      2.5 stars. I've read Susan Wiggs and Sherryl Woods before so I was let down by their short stories. Susan Mallery's story was passibly entertaining. They were so flat and boring, they left a nasty taste in my mouth. I probably had the biggest issue that each female lead was a doormat, one meekly got onto her ex's motercycle for him to whisk her away (against her willpuh-leez), another let her love interest call the shots just like her brothers did all her lifeen there's the woman who resigns her [...]

      Summer Brides by Susan Wiggs Love this anthology as it contains 3 of the best romance writers out there. The places they take you to and the things you learn make this a very worthwhile read.The Borrowed Bride by Susan WiggsIsabel Wharton lives on Bainbridge Island in WA and has a nursery business. Anthony is who she is to marry.At her bridal shower She is whisked away by past love Dan Black Horse to the Cascades Mountains for an overnight stay.

      This is a collection of three stand alone novellas:The Borrowed Bride by Susan Wiggs (1996)During her own bridal shower, Isabel Wharton is whisked away by past love Dan Black Horse to his retreat in the Cascade range. But returning to her Native roots, and Dan's loving arms, is harder than she ever imagined.I'm a Wiggs fan. Susan gives us a charming second-chance-at-love story, which I'm a sucker for. My only nit in this book was Isabel's fiance, Anthony. Even if he did have a great family that [...]

      The Borrowed Bride by Susan WiggsWhat can I say I love this story! Dan well I fell in love with him about as soon as he showed up. Isabel was interesting at least that's the first word that comes to mind. I came to love her but she has her faults. Now Anthony. I did not like him one bit. I mean who could possibly love someone who has no time for them? I don't think I could.A Bridge to Dreams by Sherryl WoodsLove love love! I want a Brad of my very own. Karyn Chambers is looking forward to her Ha [...]

      I plan on reading the entire Fool's Gold series by Susan Mallery, so I decided to to buy this book since it came with two other stories as well."The Borrowed Bride" (2 stars)This was just weird to me and while the writing was just fine, compared to the others, this was bland. I liked the idea of being swept away right before the wedding, but the way it developed was kind of strange and I was thrown off by the whole forgotten heritage thing."A Bridge to Dreams" (3 stars)Now this was very very cut [...]

      Susan Wiggs-- I didn't like this story at all. I don't mind the whole 'be yourself' theme, but the guy was so egotistical that he was okay with basically kidnaping his ex. & she was crazy enough to let him get away with it, then throw her away when he though he was broken. It screams of the whole ancient concept of women as property. Sherryl Woods-- This story was okay I probably would've liked it more had it been longer and had Woods be given time to develop her characters. The good thing i [...]

      This three stories in one book, was a nice little read. In "The Borrowed Bride", Isabel Wharton is at her bridal shower for her soon to be wedding to Anthony Cossa, when her ex-boyfriend, Dan Black Horse shows up and takes her away. In "A Bridge to Dreams" Karyn Chambers old VW dies and she has to cancel her vacation plans and buy a new car. There at the dealership she meets Prince Charming, Brad Willis.

      I've read the Wiggs novella, The Borrowed Bride before, and I disliked it even more this time. I didn't like anything about it, both main characters were irritating. I've never read the Woods novella A Bridge to Dreams and it was cute, predictable, and boring. I didn't dislike anything, but there weren't any interesting elements, either. I really liked the Mallery story, Sister of the Bride, and it was the reason I bought the book. I did find the ending cheesy and improbable, but it contained lo [...]

      Summer Brides by Susan Wiggs This was a pretty decent story.A Bridge to Dreams by Sherryl Woods I really enjoyed this one. Vacation plans to Hawaii end up chucked in lieu of a new car. A handsome ex-race car driver turned Car Dealer Owner (due to ailing father needing to lighten his work load) offers to take a one-week vacation in her home town of San Francisco. A nice story with overprotective brothers :)Sister of the Bride by Susan Mallery This is the story I checked the book out for. I adore [...]

      How do you rate a book that's actually 3 completely different short stories? You can'tI bought this book because I love Susan Mallery (and she definitely did not disappoint!). The others were just perks. The Borrowed Bride? It was okay. I had a hard time getting into the characters and caring about whether or not they ended up together. True rating - 2.5Bridge to Dreams? Better. While Brad and Karyn's relationship was super fast, I could almost believe it. I wanted it to be longer though. I want [...]

      This was all right. There was nothing wrong with it, but nothing exciting about it either. One funny thing was in Susan Mallery's story. The couple are set up by their mothers to attend her sister's wedding weekend extravaganza so she will have a date for it. Everything goes haywire. Aunt Tully seduces the groom's father. The mother of the bride gets drunk and is describing her sex life to her daughter in the father of the bride's presence. (view spoiler)[When the protagonists agree to marry, th [...]

      i am on the last book in this full book collation the first two were good but i have read better look at the book the borrowed bride to read about the first one. in the second book a girl named Karyn Chambers meets a ex-car racer(Brad) who is used to "better" girls. Karyn's vacation plan gets ruined and Brad is there to help they go all around san francisco which they already live in and have the time of their lives but after the vacation will they stay together or will they go in seperate waysl [...]

      I read this to read Sister of the Bride because I'm reading Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series.Besides Sister of the Bride, the stories were fairly lackluster. There were undercurrents in each that weren't given the proper light of day due to their length. I think as maybe full blown novellas, they would have been better.As for the one I really wantedHow adorable was this novella! It was short, sweet, and to the point. A lovely heroine, an even lovelier hero, brought together in the ultimate ide [...]

    24. Janet on said:

      Three short stories - I enjoyed 2 out of three of them but for the most part there are not enough time in these short stories (about 100 pages each) there is not a lot of time to get invested.The story by Susan Mallery is part of the Fool's Gold series that she writes, but we didnt' see or hear much about Fool's Gold. Sheryl Woods was about San Francisco(and since I grew up there I liked reading about some of the places I used to visit)The Susan Wiggs was didn't hold my interest.

    25. Judy Goodnight on said:

      I read this library book only for the Fool's Gold novella but decided to read the other stories as well.Story 1 - The Borrowed Bride by Susan Wiggs - didn't do much for me at all.Story 2 - A Bridge to Dreams by Sherryl Woods - liked the San Francisco setting, but felt the story could have been better.Story 3 - Sister of the Bride by Susan Mallery - loved this one! Lots of humor, fun premise.

    26. Maria on said:

      Three stories by great authors. The Borrowed Bride by Susan Wiggs didn't capture my imagination, A Bridge To Dreams by Sherryl Woods also lacked something and failed to get my interest, but the final story, Sister of the Bride by Susan Mallery justified the price of the book. It was funny and appealing and unexpected. Very satisfying read.

    27. Kathleen Burket on said:

      "Sister of the Bride," in the anthology Summer Brides, is another great Fool's Gold romance by Susan Mallery. Believable characters, charming romance, and a humorous wedding. My only regret is that we didn't see more of the town regulars. This is the only story in this anthology that I read.

    28. Jodi on said:

      Really enjoyed this one! I like all 3 authors so it was fun to read a short story by each of them. I especially liked the Sherryl Woods story and the idea of taking a vacation in your hometown and seeing it how a tourist does.

    29. deborah lawson on said:

      This was my first visit to Fool's Gold, and it made me want to meet the entire town. I'm a sucker for series like this where the books can be read in any order, but you feel like you've moved to a new town and have lots of new friends. Very light and fun read.
