Treasured Dreams is over. Now that An Unexpected Baby is out, that means I’ve finished the series of stories that follows Holly and Dave through the early parts of their relationship, all while enjoying the beautiful town of Whitefish.

This story was just as great as the others. Holly and Dave’s characters continue to develop and grow. It’s hard to leave them behind at this point, seven stories in. I’m sure I’d be happy to read more if Hatler were to write them. I feel with the way this left off (not as a cliff-hanger, don’t worry), there’s more enjoyment to be had from this couple’s future. But at the same time, I’m content with this being the end. I think this was a good place to leave it.

I’m sorry I don’t have much more to say about this story. It, like the others, was short. There’s not much to pick apart without giving everything away. I’m confident in saying that if you’ve enjoyed the series so far, this story won’t be a disappointment. That’s what we want in the end, anyway.

#NewRelease: An Unexpected Baby, by @SusanHatler

Today Susan Hatler releases her final story in the Treasured Dreams series. It’s number seven and the perfect time to catch up if you haven’t. Now you have an end in sight. I know some readers need all the books released before they dive into a series. For those of you who are like this, it’s your lucky day!

I’ll be reading this soon and the review will come soon after, like in the past. So be ready for that. I’m sure it won’t be easy to let these characters go, but maybe Susan has a treat for us with a future project. We’ll have to stay tuned.

Susan Hatler’s Treasured Dreams series is almost done. This story, An Unexpected Joy, is the sixth installment in Holly and Dave’s life story. It’s also one that caught me by surprise in a few ways.

What I enjoyed about this story is that Holly was the one driving the story (and series story arc) forward. In the last few, Holly was the one in for a surprise with what was going to happen by the end of the story. Now, Holly had the chance to hold all the cards. It was a nice change of pace to have Dave be out of the loop.

From the title of the seventh story, I can tell what the focus will probably be. At the same time, there’s something unresolved (not in a cliff hanger way, don’t worry) in this story that will most likely carry over to An Unexpected Baby that I’m looking forward to reading about. That’s making me want it to be February even sooner.

An Unexpected WeddingTitle: An Unexpected Wedding (Treasured Dreams #5)
Author: Susan Hatler
Rating: 4/5 stars

AN UNEXPECTED WEDDING is a super short and sweet contemporary romance short story (14 pages, 3600 words).

Instead of being an excited bride-to-be, Holly’s frazzled beyond belief as she tries to plan her wedding. Her fiancé, Dave, says whatever she wants works for him, but she can’t get her mom and soon-to-be mother-in-law to so much as agree on a date.

The worst part is that her dad passed away four years ago, and she’s heartbroken he won’t be walking her down the aisle.

Holly begins to accept the wedding is doomed, but then an unexpected surprise reminds her why she’s getting married in the first place.” (description from Goodreads)

Story number five of Susan Hatler’s Treasured Dreams series was released, and I devoured it like all the rest. That’s how much I keep enjoying this series. Yes, each story is on the short side, but I still have a hard time not powering through, enjoying every word, compared to how I read some stories of a similar length.

Hatler has a gift for putting so much story, emotion, and forward movement into small spaces. In An Unexpected Wedding, that’s exactly what the reader gets. The series may is coming to an end soon (there are two more planned, as of now, stories in the coming months), but it’s Holly’s story isn’t losing steam. It’s still pushing forward. Her character is developing more and there’s even more to enjoy from her relationship with Dave.

As usual, I don’t want to discuss the plot itself in this review. I want to allow the reader to discover what unfolds on their own. Just know that as a long-time Hatler fan, and big fan of this series, this fifth story didn’t disappoint in the least. If anything, it raised expectations a bit. (No pressure, Susan.)

Now that I’m four stories deep into the Treasured Dreams series, I know for sure that the 12th will be my favorite days on the calendar for a few more months.

This is another great story from Hatler. And it’s also another time I can’t really say much about what I read. It’s too easy to dive into the deep dark Spoiler Ocean when talking about these short stories when there’s so much story leading up to each one, but I can say that the series isn’t losing steam. If anything, it’s picking up steam and getting even better each time.

I can also say that I was surprised with this one. As the title and description promise, there’s some sort of proposal involved. What kind of proposal is it though? How will the characters handle it? There’s a lot to be assumed when reading this, but I was caught off-guard with the final outcome. And it gave me a deeper appreciation for Hatler’s writing.

Now I only have to sit and twiddle my thumbs for another month before I can read the next story. I hope I can last that long.
