~At Long Last~

Anthology

 by Judy Bagshaw

      Heroines:  varied

    A musical middle-aged widow, a disowned divorce, an abundant young wallflower, an outspoken size activist, a doubly lucky lottery winner, an overworked answering service operator, and a blocked writer all find love where they least expect it in this anthology of seven fast-paced, easy-reading stories.

What worked for me:

    "Coming Home" was my personal favorite (even though one story had a curvy gal who shared my name) because it was the tale of two high school sweeties who missed their chance the first time around, but got another shot at it later on in life.  As a girl who married her high school boyfriend, I can heartily appreciate this one.

    Size-wise the gents and ladies in this anthology were varied, but there is no question that they all understand about living life as "well-rounded" people in an angular society.

       What didn't work for me:

     The character who shares my name also shared an awful lot of the vitriolic self-hatred I used to harbor against myself, so it was a bit painful to read the beginning of this story.  Fortunately, it all turns out okay in the end. :^)

     Some of the stories which were written earlier in Ms. Bagshaw's career don't feel as polished as her more recent writings.

Overall:

     These six sweet, charming tales about men and women of all ages and sizes finding love are sure to appeal to fans of romantic short stories everywhere.

If you liked "At Long Last, Love!" you might also enjoy the "Love at Large" or "Living Large" anthologies, or "The Bachelor's Cat".
