Erich Segal once wrote, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” So, if you like anthologies, you won’t be sorry you read the Corrales Writing Group’s Love, Sweet to Spicy.
This twenty tale collection is entertaining, diverse, and heart-wrenching at times. The stories encompass aspects of love from all angles—love stories, long-term relationships, parent and child, lost love, and love for pets. There are plots twists that will surprise and delight. Yarns that will make you laugh and cry. Some will take the reader back to memories of their own past relationships. Included are several collaborative efforts and a poem.
As an added bonus, the book is filled with New Mexican artwork in a variety of mediums. Many of the authors have included their own compositions.
Due to MWSA guidelines, this review only covers those individual stories not already submitted in earlier editions.
MWSA Review by Sandi Cowper (March 2018)
Love, Sweet to Spicy is a Corrales Writing Group anthology. It includes love tales: some true and some fabricated; romance between two adults; love between parent and child, and deep affection between a pet and owner. This volume offers the reader the opportunity to explore new love, long-standing love, and lost love. Ranging from sweet to slightly spicy, some stories are amusing, others are uplifting, and a few are heart-rending. The words within these pages offer a journey into love that touches both heart and soul. This work also includes several stories that were collaboratively written by at least two writers.
