Denise is taking her son to a fete; her ex Chris is taking his daughter too. Thrown together when the kids decide to spend the day together, Denise and Chris confront their feelings for one another, and about last weekend.

Creating well-rounded characters and an interesting plot isn’t always easy in a short story but Ms. Swan did an excellent job with About Last Weekend. It held my interest from beginning to end and I think it had a lot to do with the quick pacing, and that she didn’t waste a word on anything that didn’t belong in this story.

The heroine was very likable, and at first I didn’t think the hero was going to be someone I rooted for as he’d obviously hurt the heroine, but he too turned out to be someone I wanted to see get what his heart desired. I’m glad the author picked a happy for now ending and not a happily ever after because I think it made it more true to life and to this particular storyline.

If you’re looking for a romance with some interesting characters and storyline all packed into just ten pages, I’d definitely recommend this story.
