The Nonchalant Nineteen Challenge (The Whittler) — novellas
One Summer Weekend by Shannon Stacey:
The hero had told his boss he had a serious girlfriend to avoid his and his fiancée’s matchmaking efforts, but it came back to haunt him when the boss expected the hero to bring said girlfriend to his destination wedding weekend on Cape Cod. Thankfully the hero had named his bff as the pretend girlfriend. Despite rolling her eyes at the stupidity of his dilemma she agreed to go along with his scheme. The situation had them both thinking “what if” for the first time. Despite promising one another nothing would change, once that line was crossed there was obviously no going back. They each wanted more but neither wanted to jeopardize their longtime friendship. This was a delightful friends-to-lovers story full of humor and heart with a terrific couple. I’m looking forward to more in this series.

Bearadise Lodge by Lindsay Buroker: This was a short prequel story to the author’s Fractured Stars series. Caught up on their work, the heroine’s android business partner recommended she take a vacation. Things went awry when she arrived at her cabin to discover it had been previously occupied by a group of criminals. A fun introduction to the heroine, her partner, and her adorable 150 pound dog.

Here Be Dragons by Lindsay Buroker: The heroine had an unplanned excursion from her spaceship when she agreed to accompany her sister to search for a lost colony on a terraformed penal colony planet. I enjoyed the sisters’ complicated relationship and their different perspectives on being autistic.
