REVIEW

20190226_151835487_iOSLove In Bloom is a fabulous mix of stories from all over with no two alike except for being set during spring. The nine tales ran the gamut of romance sub-genres: from Victorian historical steampunk to multicultural contemporary to paranormal/fantasy.

There are a couple of standouts, a few solid ones, and a handful of promising stories that could use better editing to make them shine.

My top two are Cosplay by Thyra Dane and Love Is In The Airship by Catherine Stein. The first is a cross-cultural romantic comedy of errors that shows the differences between Americans and Norwegians at the same time that it celebrates how love can bridge two cultures together. Ms. Dane had me laughing out loud which put me in the perfect mood for the rest of the stories. It didn’t hurt that the theme of the cosplay is Beauty and the Beast, my most favorite Disney movie ever.

Airship is equally delightful. It is imaginative and exhilarating with wonderfully fascinating characters and heart-pounding adventures. Most of the action happens thousands of feet above the ground. How fun! Incredibly creative, it is a joyful read.

Buy it for the charity, read it for entertainment. 👍🏼👍🏼
