 After the stories are done, their stories go on.

One of the great parts of writing a long, family saga is that I get to revisit characters who have already hit their happily-ever-after. Over the past couple of years I’ve written short vignettes revisiting characters from the HEART FALLS series. They’re written specifically for readers who have already enjoyed the main stories. These visits with favourite friends were sent out in newsletters, and are available for FREE ON MY WEBSITE.

But, for readers who want the stories on their ereader, I’ve made them available digitally for your convenience. Check first to see where each vignette fits into the full series if you want to avoid spoilers for books you haven’t yet read!

AS WELL, this collection contains a BRAND NEW short story for Josiah Ryder and Lisa Coleman. This collection is the ONLY place to read this story!


1. Reading Order for the HEART FALLS series

The following wedding vignettes:

2. Surprised at Bootstomp Point (Caleb & Tamara) 3K words

A cute puppy, a wedding, and a baby. That’s it. That’s the blurb. Lol.

Longer cheater version:

Lisa and Josiah are thoroughly enjoying each other’s company. He’s got his veterinarian work; she’s been busy stepping in to help her sisters and friends whenever and wherever they need. And they have Ollie, the sweet little terrier that can’t get enough of either of her favourite humans.

But as one year ends, and a new one begins, Lisa can’t help but wonder if there’s something she’s missing. What exactly is she supposed to focus on now that her extended family is settled and all her sisters are happy?

Ollie knows…

Liza's Review:

I love the Heart Falls series from Vivian Arend, and loved getting to revisit with favorite characters.  The 3 vignettes and short story were just the happy stories I needed right now. The vignettes were the perfect lengths for a quick revisit with each of the couples in the Stone family. I loved that Lisa and Josiah (and Ollie) had a longer story than the other couples. They absolutely were one of my favorite couples, and I had all the happy feels from reading their update. Ms. Arend once again had me falling for a large family, and I enjoyed every minute of my visit back in Heart Falls. The Heart Falls series is such a funny and sexy contemporary series, and I highly recommend to fans of contemporary romances.

Rating: 4 Stars (B)
