Summer at the Shore Leave Café shares second chances, new beginnings and shore life. It is the first book in the Shore Leave Café series by Abbie Williams. Small town life, interesting characters and a heated forbidden romance made this an enjoyable summer read.
I have been enjoying the Ten Tiny Breaths series by K.A. Tucker and excited to read bouncer Ben’s story. Admittedly the synopsis of Five Ways to Fall made me a tad nervous but I should not have been. This turned out to be one of my favorite books in the series. Filled with emotion, humor and family I quickly became caught-up in Ben and Reese’s story.
I was beyond excited to return to the Snow Crystal Resort in Vermont after my last trip there in November with Sleigh Bells in the Snow the first book in Sarah Morgan’s O’Neil Brothers series. Suddenly Last Summer shares Sean O’Neil and French chef Elise Philippe story and it was as yummy as the dishes she whips up. Suddenly Last Summer is full of heart, romantic moments and family you will want to call your own. It can be read as standalone but I guarantee you will want to read them all.
The Promise by Robyn Carr is the fifth book in the Thunder Point series, and I have come to love the townsfolk in this coastal, Oregon community. This story updates us on previous characters and introduces Peyton Lacoumette. She is a talented medical assistant who needs a change. When she steps into Scott Grant’s medical practice, she finds more than expected. This was a delightful, sweet romance and once again, Carr had me wrapped up in this romance.
Last year I was impressed with Delia’s Shadow the first book in the Delia Martin series by Jamie Lee Moyer. I was captivated by its 1917 San Francisco setting, paranormal mystery and fleshed out characters. A Barricade in Hell delivered an intense paranormal mystery with dark elements and charismatic characters that quickly drew me back into this world.
