The title of this compilation of four short stories by four amazing authors says it all. ASK ME WHY I'm such a fan of each of these talented, multifaceted writers and the answer is simply -- they have the ability to entertain, intrigue and totally win my praise within the restraints of a novella. How they manage to tell an entire fabulous story in the space of under 100 pages each is beyond my imagination. But they do. In ASK ME WHY you get a little tease of just how wonderful these authors are and why each has a following of devoted fans. ASK ME WHY is going to win over a whole new bunch of readers for Jodi Thomas, Marie Force, Shirley Jump and Virginia Kantra. I can almost hear them asking themselves -- how did I miss this?

Okay, so ASK ME WHY is a compilation or group of novellas -- short, somewhat sweet, stories. Each could easily be lengthened and enhanced for a full-blown book but each does have a somewhat satisfying conclusion. Why do I say somewhat? Each novella left me wanting more.

YOU'LL BE MINE by Marie Force is about trying to put on a wedding without problems and issues. Seems like a lost cause, but love will prevail.

MIDNIGHT BET by Jodi Thomas is about finding a new love, opening your eyes to possibilities, and regaining one that seemed difficult to hold on to. Not easy, but who said love is?

In WRAPPED AROUND YOUR FINGER by Shirley Jump we are asked once again to not judge a book by its cover.

CAROLINA HEART by Virginia Kantra shows us that old loves don't die easily. Just when the world seems too much to handle, someone can really make a difference.

Looking for a lovely, quick read? Look no further. ASK ME WHY qualifies for that afternoon read with a cup of coffee and a chaise. Not only will you enjoy each of the novellas in ASK ME WHY, but you will find yourself looking up these wondrous authors to see what else they've published. Short, sweet, and very satisfying.
