Although a small selection, I enjoyed reading the entries in this latest challenge. I was especially pleased to see entries by authors I haven't seen published for a while, along with the characters portrayed in their stories. Sort of like seeing old friends after a long time apart. ❤️

I liked all four stories from this challenge, and I agree with luvtwinks, it was nice reading tales from familiar authors and their characters. I really liked the "what if" premise of "Sunnybanks revisited", enjoyed seeing a new, albeit a bit darker, story with Tony (though I still have some stories to catch up with), and how the action in the picture inspired the main characters in "In the picture".
I enjoyed "We are in love!" though I must say that my heart broke a little for Pete...
I already knew and liked the work of the other authors, and it's the first story I read by Talo Segura. It  made me want to read more of his work (perhaps even a little follow up to the story, I think poor Pete deserves a chance for redemption Wink ...). I'm looking forward to starting Milo soon, after I finished the current one I'm following.
