Warning: Laughter ahead! Liz Curtis Higgs delivers again with "Fine Print," where a businessman and the speech coach he's hired have no idea there are matchmakers at work on their behalf! Her novella is part of a delightful triple-header in Three Weddings and a Giggle. The "giggle" comes from Carolyn Zane, whose "Sweet Chariot" drops readers in on two little old ladies who purchase a motor home sight-unseen, then drag their adult grandchildren along for cross-country antics. In Karen Ball's "Bride on the Run," an heiress defies her father's demand that she marry a man she doesn't love. If only she hadn't waited until her wedding day to do so! So it's out the window, down the rose trellis ... and headlong into one escapade after another. Thoroughly fun!

About the Author:

Liz Curtis Higgs is the award-winning author of ten books-six humorous, inspiring nonfiction books for women, including Help! I'm Laughing and I Can't Get Up, and four Gold Medallion-winning children's books, beginning with The Pumpkin Patch Parable. As a busy conference speaker, Liz has entertained more than 1,200 audiences in nearly all 50 states with her original humor and heartfelt encouragement. Her newsletter, The Laughing Heart, has 16,000 readers worldwide. She's also a columnist for Today's Christian Woman, a consulting editor for The Joyful Noiseletter, and a member of the National Speakers Association, the Fellowship of Merry Christians, and Romance Writers of America. Before launching her speaking and writing career, Liz spent ten years as a popular radio personality in five states, gathering humorous material about life behind the microphone. Mixed Signals is her first novel.

From Publishers Weekly:

These three novellas by noted Christian novelists will entertain, despite their formulaic girl-meets-boy, girl-marries-boy story lines. Higgs, who has perfected the formula in her two novels, Bookends and Mixed Signals, introduces readers to Meghan DeWitt, a stunning 30-something career woman whose heart was broken by her no-good erstwhile fianc‚. She falls for the handsome widower, Hugh Osborne, but it takes a little matchmaking on the part of Hugh's family to convince the two brokenhearted beauties to risk love again. The other two stories--Zane's "Sweet Chariot" and Ball's "Bride on the Run"--also feature lovely young women and eligible bachelors, though Zane and Ball lack Higgs's sense of humor. Each novella packs a Christian punch, with the characters learning to trust God as the action progresses. The plots are decidedly conventional, but the characters are impressively developed--the women are feisty, the men are believably sensitive, and all are even a touch confused about what they want out of life. The dialogue (especially the stuttering, sputtering exchanges, reminiscent of the 1980s television program Moonlighting), features charming tˆte-...-tˆtes between lovers who won't admit their infatuation. After reading all three novellas, however, readers may long for a protagonist who doesn't look like a cover model, and Ball should have thought better of handicapping one of her characters with an annoying Canadian accent. Even so, this lively collection raises the bar for Christian romance.
