The tiny homes I’ve seen on T.V. are practical, charming and innovative. It’s amazing how much living area there can be such a tiny space. The common theme in this novella series is the “tiny houses.”
I read Love is Sweeter in Sugar Hill by Ane Mulligan. I was amazed at how quickly this author had me care about her characters and emotionally involved in their situation. RN Lyndsey Beaumont has worked at the hospital for two years under the watchful eye of Carter Elliot; Hospital Administrator. Things are changing and she’s not sure she likes it. Carter is responsible for the new wing being added and finances are tight. Lindsey is charge nurse who’s passionate about her job and wants to make sure her patience’s get quality care. She’s determined to make things happen so she keeps after Carter. It’s not that Carter doesn’t want to do the right thing he does. He just had a lot to manage. They both were juggling their jobs and feelings they had for each other. It made things stressful.
Lyndsey has been hurt by the men in her life and she’s not about to let her emotions control her now. Her mom says to her, “Honey, love is always going to be a risk…you can’t live your life with your heart stuck in the past.”
She’s been doing good until lately she noticed things becoming awkward around Carter Elliot. He did have the dreamiest eyes.
Carter was having troubles of his own, “Coming or going – or staying for that matter – everything about Lyndsey Beaumont got under his skin.” Especially her big brown eyes.
There are few surprises for readers at the end I didn’t see coming. I couldn’t believe so much could happen in just eleven chapters. I have seen this author evolve into quite the page-turning, engaging storyteller with characters I liked hanging out with. Bravo Ane!
I had fun reading the first story. I look forward to reading the rest in the collection. I’ll be back with more reviews when I finish reading the other stories. Below are the titles in the collection; I look forward to reading. This will make a fun summer read.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this collection of 7 stories written by different authors but all revolved around tiny houses.
Each story was very unique and written well with some romance and suspense. The characters are well development and left the reader wanting to know what happened next.
Although, they were all wonderful my favorite one was "If These Walls Could Talk." The story takes place in the winter in WI, where the main character Kia inherits a house. After getting to the house she finds out that there is someone living in her house who claims the house belongs to him. The story continue as they figure out who is the true owner of the house while learning more about their families past.
I would recommend this book to any reader.

I recieved this book from the author at bookfun.com for my honest opinion.
Seven stories of love and laughter found in a tiny house. This collection has something for every reader. There's sweet romance, lots of laughter and even some gripping suspense in the last story. While only two of the authors - Ane Mulligan and Pamela S. Meyers- were familiar names to me, each of the others had such enjoyable stories that I had a tough time choosing a favorite.
I also loved that each story revolved around a tiny house. I'm familiar with the concept through one of my husband's favorite shows, "Tiny House, Big Living". Pretty sure I'd feel claustrophobic but these stories really made me wonder.
I absolutely recommend this collection!
