Happy Friday, reader friends! This week’s feature is a novella collection that is launching a new and exciting multi-author project the Arcadia Valley Romance series! Check out the first lines of Romance Grows in Arcadia Valley! Each novella kicks off a three-book series, all set in Arcadia Valley, and each intertwined with the works of the other authors. How cool is that!?!!
Plus some of these ladies are among my favorite authors and the others are new to me! I’m really excited about spending some time in Arcadia Valley! We’re going to take a peek at the first line of each novella today and I’m diving in this weekend!
