It Happened One Season

Four amazing talents

have come together to create one of the most unforgettable events of the year. The results are spectacular—each story is as unique as a lover’s first kiss.


Have you ever read a book and wondered what would have happened if the story had went a different way?  Well in this story, there are four authors telling different takes on a certain storyline.  Basically, you get four different reads in one book!

I really enjoyed this book.  I liked how each author brought something different to the story.  Each one of them had their own writing style while using the same basis of a plot.  What made it even more enjoyable was the fact that I found myself excited to be reading a Historical Romance!  I have been trying to enjoy this genre and it has been a hit and miss for me.  I will say though that this book was a hit!

Each story flowed nicely and each one was amazing as a stand alone.  I was able to finish one story and continue on shortly after into the next one without any hitches.  I will also mention that while I enjoyed the book as a whole, the last story by Candice Hern was my least favorite of the bunch. It was a little slow going, but it still wasn’t that bad.

If you are looking for something unique, then I say pick up this book.  If you are a fan of Historical Romance, or just wanting to try it for the first time, this would be perfect!  You get to read 4 different stories by 4 different authors of this genre in one book!


Very Good! I would recommend this book! 4 STARS
