The California Gold Rush
The California Gold Rush Romance Collection
Amanda Barratt, Angela Bell, Dianne Christner, Anne Greene,
Linda Harris, Cynthia Hickey, Pam Hillman, Jennifer Spinola, Jaime Jo Wright
Nine authors come together to write historical romance novellas centered on the California gold rush. Each author takes a different look at the hardships, triumphs, and relationships that steamed from the fervor the gold caused. The connection between each story is the faith that is woven throughout the plot, the location and topic of each story, and the romantic story.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was a great glimpse into each author's writing style. Some of these are authors that I've enjoyed in the past, but a few were new to me. A couple of the stories felt very rushed in the timeline of the romance. But overall, all of these were sweet, romantic, filled with faith, and were a wonderful entertainment on a rainy day. The stories are short and since they aren't really connected can be read alone. This makes this a great book for those times when you only have a short time to read. Overall, I think this was an entertaining book that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys clean, historical romance novellas.
I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
