    An enjoyable romance series

    Life's Second Chances is the first in this series by Anne Stone,and is a very sweet, clean love story. Angelina and Alejandro were attracted to each other from the moment they met, although it was adversity that drew them closer together. The emotions Angelina experienced after infection stole her fertility are pretty typical for a woman who knows and understands that she will never have her own child, and the heart break that comes from watching other families with children was well portrayed. Alejandro's guilt over his past, whilst unfounded, was also typical of a responsible man who cares deeply for those he loves. I chuckled at Angelina and Alejandro's antics to keep their extended families from finding out about their fledgling relationship, despite being in their 30's! They were like two teenagers trying to hide their relationship. Certainly, both their families were loud, noisy and caring, the kind of families I would have loved to be part of. Life’s Gateway to Happiness is a clean, well thought out story, however I did find it very long-winded with high octane emotions running out of control! Kelly’s return to the seat of her family home in seeming disgrace was realistic and one could understand her feelings of self-doubt and questioning of her value system. I would have liked to see her grow a backbone and take measures to protect herself. Alec is the original Alpha male, taking it upon himself to solve his loved one’s problems, not realising that it is enough for him to just be there and offer a comforting shoulder to cry on when required. The whole Alvarez family is close knit and the concern shown one for another is heart-warming, if a little bit smothering. Despite dealing with one of the most difficult issues women have to face, this was a good read with a satisfactory conclusion. Life's Turned Upside down is a thoroughly enjoyable romantic read with a mystery to be solved. Gabby and Ashton started off on the wrong foot and there was strong animosity between them, reducing both of them to childish attitudes. Ashton's constant teasing of Gabriella by mispronouncing her name riled her up, and Gabby's blundering accidents keep Ashton off kilter. However, when the chips are down, the Alvarez family stand by Ashton, and Gabby takes a personal interest in unlocking Ashton's past. Ashton's childhood was one I could strongly identify with, as I was sent to boarding school as a 10-year old in another country. I too spent school vacations at school and only went home once a year because it was too far to travel. It is no wonder that Ashton became uptight and abrasive. However with the Alvarez family's constant support, Ashton begins to unwind and learn about becoming part of a caring community. Having read the previous books in the series, neither Ashton nor Gabriella were my favourite people, however in this book they both redeemed themselves and became people I would like to meet. Having read each of the books in The Show Me series, it is a pleasure to be able to review this box set and this is my honest review.

    Great Love Stories!

    I really enjoyed this series! Each book is full of fun characters, strange situations, and great romance. A good amount of twists in each story to keep the reader guessing and sweet romances at the end of the day for those fans of HEAs :)
