Love, Amour, Amore by Kaya Quinsey is a collection of three love stories with different themes. Story one: Valentine was on a trip to Venice where she met charming Lorenzo. They lost contact and met again ten years later. Will they rekindle their flame or is it water under the bridge? Story two: Jessica got dumped after a near-marriage proposal on live television. She ran back to her small town where sparks flew between her and Dean, the Mayor. She got caught in a dilemma when Brett showed up again to propose for real. Who will Jessica choose? Story three: Gwendoline lost her husband, Jean, in the war. She was depressed and never left her countryside home for four years. One day, she took a bold step to her brother’s place in Paris, where she met Madame Goulet, and her life changed forever.
Love, Amour, Amore by Kaya Quinsey is a body of work featuring stories of love, loss, fate, grief, and choices. The plot of each story was unique, with a minimal number of well-developed characters. I loved that the stories were short but packed punches and delivered well. I gleaned from these stories that we can be fulfilled with or without romantic affiliations. While some may reach places of contentment with someone to love, others will find it in the peace that comes with being in that career, caring for others, clarity about life, or even reaching goals thought impossible. I loved all the stories, but my most favorite was “A Coastal Christmas.” The story was realistic and relatable, showing how ambitious the average human can be. I had a beautiful time reading this novel, and I hope Kaya writes more.
