Donna’s Review: 

Chance of Loving You is a romance collection from three of my favorite authors. The first book is by Terry Blackstock called For Love of Money. It’s a lottery winner story with a Christian perspective. It makes you wonder how you would handle the situation; would you be more like Blake or more like Julie. I think your stomach will be in notes as you watch the clock tick down  The second book is called The Recipe by Candace Calvert. The book starts off with a little humor and moves into more serious topics. Lucas’ grandmother is in the hospital and is losing her will to live after recently losing her husband. Aimee works in the nursing home in the food area. Aimee is also entering a food contest and trying a few options out on the residents. There is a lot of reflection regarding her loss of her mother. I think you’re truly enjoy the story. I teared up twice; once when we find “The Recipe” and again when Lucas gives Aimee her birthday present. The third and final book is Hook, Line and Sinker by Susan May Warren. Each of the stories has a totally different feel and setting. In Hook, Line and Sinker you have two friends trying to move past their grief that tore them apart. I think you will love Abigail who is your smart quirky 4.0 grad student. Ross is the brother of her high school best friend and the boys she’s had a crush on since high school. He is her total opposite full of charisma and struggling to pass Greek. The story takes place as they’re competing in an annual fishing contest.
