Love's Reprise Reviews
When love is strained beyond measure, a relationship may never recover. When a lover dies, the surviving partner may never be able to reconnect. This may sound fairly bleak, however, here are five rather happy endings, and with love as the focal point, everyone wins including the reader!Complicated GiftsThis story was, as the title promises, a bit complicated for me to grasp initially. Carene is a pianist who is very comfortable being a small town instructor. Her lover, Leila, is the concert master/first violist for the NY Philharmonic, but is recuperating from surgery in her lover’s small town and also teaching while she is healing. Their love and relationship is sorely tested between the tantrums and the tensions. Leila expects to scoop Carene off her comfort zone and whisk her away to NYC eventually. Carene is hard at work getting Leila to see the beauty of residing in a small town. This certainly looked like a lose/lose situation – until it resolved itself.Broken Promises This story was way cool and highly intriguing. Tabby is renovating a supposedly haunted house. The prologue initially presents a gruesome execution of a supposed witch and practicing lesbian, providing part of the reason for the haunting. Compliments of the witch’s familiar, a most tantalizing resurrection occurs. Now the executioner and the executed are both linked to the haunted house. This story was oh so fantastic!Broken DreamsGinger Parsons is a highly praised rock singer in a very successful band, Driven Wild. Her husband is a creep, a batterer, and a philanderer. She leaves Sammy following an ugly fight after which she hightails it out to LA on her way to becoming the successful and well known leader of her band.Samantha Mason, Sammy, is a successful veterinarian. It has been four years since her break-up with Ginger. Ginger still haunts her memories. However, her current friends have finagled her into going out for some much needed enjoyment. The date is a disaster. This happy ending was really, really sweet in an S&M kind of way. KimmyKimmy is a very proficient nurse and was married to Kyra, an equally proficient general surgeon. Kyra died in an airplane accident a year ago.Nora is a pediatrician. Kimmy is going to part of her team. They mesh very well although Kimmy is still in mourning. Proximity, affection, and mutual attraction work their wonders.Nothing seemed to go right with Nora and Kimmy and they both hurt because of it. However, good fortune that comes with happy endings does intervene.Another DanceEden and Janine were school chums and a major misunderstanding split them up for ten years. At Eden’s sister’s wedding to Janine’s brother, they will most probably have to interact. Ah, true confessions can sometimes lead to happy endings.NOTE: This book was provided by LazyDay Publishing for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.
Over all I enjoyed. There were five stories and I liked some more than others. It wasn't what I thought it would be when I requested it on NetGalley but that didn't matter. The first story was about two musicians who had been together for a year as one of them had injured her wrist and so couldn't play. The characters were interesting and I got through this story quickly as it held my attention. The second story was my favourite as it was about a woman who was a witch 70 years ago and was hanged for being with this man's wife. 70 years on a woman who was descended from the man and his wife moves into the house which is supposed to be haunted. It turns out it is haunted and the witch is brought back to life but without her magic. They get rid of the ghost who turns out to be the man who hung her and live happily ever after. I loved this one because of the supernatural feel to it. The third story was about a rock star who walks in on her husband with other women and decided she is going to go back to her home town. There she meets her ex-girlfriend and it turns out they are still in love with each other so they stay together. It was nice but didn't hold my interest that much.The fourth one was about a doctor and a nurse. The nurse's wife had died in a aeroplane accident a year before and she was still grieving. Everyone was telling her to move on and then she meets the new doctor at the hospital. The nurse doesn't know what to do because she doesn't want to betray her dead wife but really likes this new doctor. Of course they ended up together. It was good but I didn't find it all that interesting.The final story was about a woman who was going to her sister's wedding and there she meets her ex-best friend who she kissed and then they fell out. It turned out that her ex-best friend was just confused and they needed up together as well. I read this one quite quickly but the flashbacks were annoying.
