An anthology by three bestselling romance authors

For Love of Money by Terri Blackstock
Trying to launch her own design firm while waitressing on the side, Julie Sheffield was drawn to the kind man she waited on at the restaurant last night . . . until he stiffed her on the tip by leaving her half of a sweepstakes ticket.

The Recipe by Candace Calvert Hospital dietary assistant Aimee Curran is determined to win the Vegan Valentine Bake-Off to prove she’s finally found her calling. But while caring for one of her patients―the elderly grandmother of a handsome CSI photographer―Aimee begins to question where she belongs.

Hook, Line & Sinker by Susan May Warren Grad student Abigail Cushman has agreed to enter the annual Deep Haven fishing contest. She’s a quick learner, even if she doesn’t know the difference between a bass and a trout. But nothing could prepare her for competing against the handsome charmer she’s tried to forget since grief tore them apart.

One chance for each woman to change her life . . . but will love be the real prize?

My thoughts:


Chance of Loving You is a collection of novellas, all stand-alone and by different authors. The first one, For Love of Money, was my least favorite because I found the story not that great and I didn't care for the characters. It was cute in the beginning, but the ending really spoiled the book for me...just didn't like it.

The second novella, The Recipe, I loved! It was such a sweet story and didn't even feel like a novella. I loved how Aimee went on a "journey" to discover where she belonged and what her dream was. The ending was also very good!

The last novella, Hook, Line, and Sinker, was a reread for me as I read it when it originally released. I really enjoyed it both times. The fishing contest was fun, as was the whole story. My only complaint is that the novella did feel a bit short, but still it was good.

All in all, a nice novella collection. I enjoyed reading these quick stories and look forward to reading future novels by these authors.
