About The Authors: 
Margaret Brownley - Margaret is a New York Times bestselling author and past Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 30 novels to her credit. Not bad for someone who flunked 8th grade English. Just don't ask her to diagram a sentence.
Miralee Ferrell -Ferrell started writing shortly after she turned 50, and discovered she loved it so much she didn't  want to stop.  She has 11 books out & four more releasing in 2015, a four book set of horse novels for middle-grade girls. She writes both women's contemporary fiction, historical romance and horse novels for girls. One of her Western romances, Love Finds You in Sundance, WY, was awarded the Will Rogers Medallion for Western Fiction, and Blowing on Dandelions, book one in the Love Blossoms in Oregon series, made the ECPA best seller list in 2013.
Pam Hillman- CBA Bestselling author PAM HILLMAN was born and raised on a dairy farm in Mississippi and spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn't afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove an Allis Chalmers 110. Even when her daddy asked her if she wanted to bale hay, she told him she didn't mind raking. Raking hay doesn't take much thought so Pam spent her time working on her tan and making up stories in her head. Now, that's the kind of life every girl should dream of.
My Thoughts On The Book: 
Dog Days Of Summer Bride  was a most entertaining story and I decided to read them at separate times so I could prolong the delight in the book. and savor the flavor of each novella.  That was a good idea.  I loved the characters Jed and Marilee and thought this was absolutely a perfectly wonderful story!
The Dogwood Blossom Bride was delightful.  The lessons about not trusting our emotions but letting God take control was powerful.
The Lumberjack’s Bride was my favorite of the novellas.  I love stories of lumberjacks, especially after attending a lumberjack competition in the Pacific Northwest.    I could not put this one down.  swept me up in a visual feast of burly lumberjacks and sun-bathed woods with fields of wildflowers proudly showing off God’s handiwork. The palpable romantic tension left me smiling with satisfaction at the close.
