"Charming Tales Worth Your Time"

Fresh Fiction Review

Four Weddings and a Sixpence
Elizabeth Boyle, Julia Quinn, Laura Lee Guhrke, Stefanie Sloane

Reviewed by Kristen Donnelly

Romance Historical | Romance Anthology

This anthology opens with four girls in a boarding school, bonding over a sixpence found in a mattress. Deciding that it contained magical powers - like a certain pair of jeans 150 or so years later - they knew it would bring them each love and vowed to keep it in their circle until it did.

From that point forward, our four girls are each turned over into the hands of four fantastic authors who know Regency-era storytelling very well.

For me, personally, Stefanie Sloane and Julia Quinn's installments are the most successful - mostly because I bonded with the heroines almost immediately. I was charmed by the other two stories and can broke no real complaints about them, the others just stuck with me more.

This is a no-brainer buy for anyone who enjoys any of these authors. Added bonus is that if you're only familiar with one, you may discover new favorite storytellers to explore! Recommended for sure.
