Kindle Review….. Three Weddings And A Baby: Heart Falls Vignette Collection 1 by Vivian Arend

Three Weddings And A Baby: Heart Falls Vignette Collection 1 by Vivian Arend

After the stories are done, their stories go on.

One of the great parts of writing a long, family saga is that I get to revisit characters who have already hit their happily-ever-after. Over the past couple of years I’ve written short vignettes revisiting characters from the HEART FALLS series. They’re written specifically for readers who have already enjoyed the main stories. These visits with favourite friends were sent out in newsletters, and are available for FREE ON MY WEBSITE. 

But, for readers who want the stories on their ereader, I’ve made them available digitally for your convenience. Check first to see where each vignette fits into the full series if you want to avoid spoilers for books you haven’t yet read!

AS WELL, this collection contains a BRAND NEW story for Josiah Ryder and Lisa Coleman. This collection is the ONLY place to read this story!

THIS COLLECTION CONTAINS:

1. Reading Order for the HEART FALLS series

The following wedding vignettes:

2. Surprised at Bootstomp Point (Caleb & Tamara)

3. Heartfelt at Heart Falls (Walker & Ivy)

4. A Wild Horse Wedding (Luke & Kelli)

And the short story:

5. Oh Baby! (Josiah & Lisa)

A cute puppy, a wedding, and a baby….. that’s it. That’s the blurb. Lol.

Longer cheater version:

Lisa and Josiah are thoroughly enjoying each other’s company. He’s got his veterinarian work; she’s been busy stepping in to help her sisters and friends whenever and wherever they need. And they have Ollie, the sweet little terrier that can’t get enough of either of her favourite humans.

But as one year ends, and a new one begins, Lisa can’t help but wonder if there’s something she’s missing. What exactly is she supposed to focus on now that her extended family is settled and all her sisters are happy?

Ollie knows…

6. Chapter One of ROCKY MOUNTAIN FOREVER

I hope you enjoy these visits to Heart Falls!

Publication date 8/9/2020

My Review…… 

I love this author and this series, also the spin offs and all the stories that are connected to this wonderful series. 

This are basically short stories or chapters telling us what happened after the book finished. 

I love this idea. You do wonder what goes on after the ending. 

If it’s in a series, then sometimes your lucky enough to catch snippets of other characters and how they are getting on. But with this collection, you need not wonder anymore. 

It also gives the reader a list of books in this series (I do love a list) which is handy as I slipped up and missed a book (which I remedied as soon as I realised) 

So I do recommend you read this collection after each book. (Well it gave me an excuse to read the books again) 

You can read these without reading the books first, but it does seem a little pointless (I get the impression they are for the fans rather than a new reader) 

The following wedding vignettes:

Surprised at Bootstomp Point (Caleb & Tamara)

Surprising Tamara isn’t the easiest at the best of times, but Caleb is determined to make this special event happen without her coordinating it. With help from his oldest daughter, and a return visit to a memorable meeting spot, it’s time for Tamara to truly become a part of the Stone family. Timeline: This scene takes place on the first day of summer after A Rancher’s Heart and before A Rancher’s Song. 

Review…..

Caleb is trying to surprise Tamara, and with the help of his eldest daughter he intends to surprise the love of his life. 

We get to catch up with his brothers and see how they are all getting along since the end of A Rancher’s Heart. 

It’s a cute little snippet of Caleb and Tamara, I don’t want to give much away, but it’s the happy ending that we should have gotten at the end of their book. 

Heartfelt at Heart Falls (Walker & Ivy) 

Walker Stone and Ivy Fields are getting married, and all their family—even the goats—seem to want to be involved. Which is why Walker takes charge with a surprise to make this day perfect for both him and Ivy.

Review…..

Walker and Ivy are getting married, it’s fun catching up with couples you’ve already fallen in love with. 

I liked Walker and I was glad when he got his story. 

The details in this short glimpse into their lives is just as detailed and wonderful as the main story. 

If you want to find out what Walker has planned, you need to read this book. 

A Wild Horse Wedding (Luke & Kelli)

It’s late April, and Kelli James is about to stir up some trouble for her fiancé, Luke Stone. Good thing there’s nothing he likes better than her kind of mischief.

Review…..

Luke and Kelli, this one had so much fun and laughter in it.  

This family knows how to throw a wedding. They’ve thrown a few, but when both the bride and groom get swept away with wedding fever, they do the only thing they can do. 

Beautifully written, it had me smiling through the vignette. 

And a short story …. Oh Baby! (Josiah & Lisa)

Description….. 

Lisa and Josiah are thoroughly enjoying each other’s company. He’s got his veterinarian work; she’s been busy stepping in to help her sisters and friends whenever and wherever they need. And they have Ollie, the sweet little terrier that can’t get enough of either of her favourite humans.

But as one year ends, and a new one begins, Lisa can’t help but wonder if there’s something she’s missing. What exactly is she supposed to focus on now that her extended family is settled and all her sisters are happy.

Review…..

This short story hasn’t been seen before, and I was eager to read it. 

Lisa and Josiah have been together for a year now, everything is going great. All her sisters are happy and with men that love them. 

Christmas is a time for celebrations, and each sister has something to be thankful for. 

I have to admit I loved Ollie the terrier, definitely the star of the book. 

Josiah is at a loss, Lisa isn’t her usual self, something is bothering her, and it’s driving him crazy. 

We have a terrier that demands lots of attention, stray emus and a herd of caribou. 

Lisa is feeling a little lost, she needs job or a purpose. 

And Josiah may have just what she she’s looking for…..

And the surprise that’s waiting in the wings….  well you just need to look at the title and work it out 😉

This finished of this book nicely. 

And then a sneak peak at chapter one of the next book due out … ROCKY MOUNTAIN FOREVER 

And I can’t wait for that one. 

So if your a big fan of Ms Arend, then I urge you to grab a copy. It’s a great way to read the snippets without the newsletters.
