Authors – Lisa Cach, Susan Grant, Julie Kenner, Lynsay Sands

It seems that for centuries upon centuries mothers have been trying to get their children to marry certain suitable people.  Mothers after all know best who should marry their offspring.

The book runs from 1350 to the present day and beyond within 4 stories.  The first is about a Lord who has to get married within 2 weeks time or his bride will be chosen for him.  His mother arranges balls for him to attend.  Quite amusing when he is almost the only  male there.  As he is stubborn and head strong his mother refuses this time to support his choice.  She explains that if she does it will put him off.  She actually does her best to try to split them up knowing full well it will have the opposite effect.

In the 2nd story (which I didnt enjoy as much as the others) 2 mothers get together to marry off their offspring which are misfits and unmarriageable.

The 3rd story set in the present day.  The mother in this story is in some ways trying to live her life though her daughter.  She places an ad for love on her daughters behalf much to her daughters horror. Mother wants a super hero her daughter, her daughter  just wants an ordinary life with a normal mortal man.  She however, falls for an undercover super hero.   Maybe mothers way is the right way after all.

The last story had me in tears towards the end.  I am a bit soppy sometimes.  Andie grew up with a mother that LOVED super natural stuff and to make it even worst they live in Roswell.  This does have an impact on her career choice though as she is an astronaut.  She goes to spend some time at home before goingon a 3 year mission to Mars.  While there she wishes upon a star.  Her wish comes true when a man falls from outer space and the 2 fall in love.

I liked this story the best and would consider reading more by Susan Grant in the future.  Not bad overall considering I found it at a garage sale 🙂
