Here is another book from my Kindle freebie list. There is no excuse for me not to have read this because it is only 39 pages.
BLURB: Anna is content with her life. She works as a kindergarten teacher for a local school, and gives as much of her time as she can to her church. The new pastor at her church has caused quite a stir among the single females, because not only is he a single pastor, but he’s a handsome single pastor. Anna knows she doesn’t have a shot with him. Or does she?
DATE BOUGHT: 1/2/13 (Over five years to read a short story. Shame on me.)
WHY I BOUGHT IT: I like trying authors new to me, but I'm hesitant to start a series with an author I'm not familiar with. Silly, since that's how I discovered Marilyn Meredith and Kathi Macias, but it's one of my quirks that is still being worked out. I'm also picky on the romance novels I read, so this short story is a way to check out the author's style and see if it works for me.
How do you feel about series books? Will you try a new author when you know you're picking up the first book in a series?
