Six of today’s Best-selling Christian Authors weave six brand-new, unique, interconnected stories where nothing comes between the love betwixt two hearts.

Betwixt Two Hearts by Amanda Tru
With control of their dating website the prize, Bailey and Camden embark on a matchmaking competition that snags on unexpected results. All is fair in a contest of love. May the best matchmaker win.

The Swedehearts Glory Quilt by Cathe Swanson
Eleanor ran away to find herself. David knew exactly where he wanted to go. Could a matchmaking agency put them on the same map?

Whole Latte Love by Kari Trumbo
Misguided Drew thinks all quiet women hide harmful secrets. While pretty, new best friend Addi’s soft-spoken nature reminds him too much of past hurts to move their relationship forward. Can a matchmaking agency change his heart?

Seoul Refuge by Alana Terry
Caroline is a new believer, excited and passionate about her faith. Calvin is a Boston police detective, an atheist who can hardly believe Christians have brainwashed his wife. Caroline just wants to follow God. Calvin just wants his wife back.

Guardian of Her Heart by Carol Moncado
Signed up for a dating service by friends and brought together by a stowaway cat, Mark and Casey must decide if they want to overcome their apparent incompatibilities or go their separate ways.

Random Acts of Shyness by Chautona Havig
Heath’s sister, Selby, has laid down the law. It’s time to let her take over his love life. After a series of first and only dates, Heath embarks on her new scheme to help him overcome the debilitating nervous habit that has plagued him all his life. However, between dates, each worse than the last, he tries one more time to do things his way… sort of.

Please Note: The Crossroads Collections are sets of stories that are interconnected in some way, but the collections are independent, complete, and can be read in any order.

Other Books In This Series


Betwixt Two Hearts is a collection of interconnected stories, each one written by a talented author who brings her own style & flavor to the mix. In this case, all the stories are tied together by an online matchmaking/dating service, which you can imagine brings all manner of humor, romance, and touching moments – even a dash of suspense. They may not all be related to the dating service in the way you might expect, though, which keeps the collection from being too predictable and lets each story stay fresh and intriguing for readers to start the next one.

Bottom Line: A variety of settings, characters, voices, and themes frames Betwixt Two Hearts with something for nearly every reader. Brought to life by six unique authors, each story allows readers a taste of that writer’s style and talent, allowing the collection to be its own sort of matchmaking service – that of matching the right readers to the right authors and hopefully establishing a lifelong reading relationship. At the core of it all is the important reminder (reflected in varying degrees & in beautiful ways in each story) that no love on earth satisfies like the greatest Love found only in Jesus.

(I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book which I purchased for my own collection. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)
