This is the first book I've read that has four sections by four different authors, but one storyline. I enjoyed reading each authors take on the same story. Each section focused on a different character and her love life. The mystery of the dog tags that were found in Grandma Rose's attic continues throughout all the sections along with mini story lines of Tess, Clare, Zoe and Anna.
