It was fun heading back to Mystic Creek with Strawberry Hill by Catherine Anderson. This is the fifth novel, but each can be read on their own. A second chance romance, a budding romance and a bear made for another interesting visit to this small mountain town.
Newness and Wonder by Alexis Lynne is the first book in the Sylvan Hills series. Set during the holiday season the story introduces us to three sisters related through blood, brought together through circumstance. Set in a small North Carolina town nestled in the mountains you’ll soon want to back your bags and visit.
A Merciful Secret by Kendra Elliot is the third book of the series. Set in Oregon, it features an FBI Agent who grew up in a survivalist household. Mercy, the FBI and Police Chief Truman Daly, investigate the murder of an old woman rumored to be a witch.
Cooper’s Charm by Lori Foster is the first novel in her latest series, Love at the Resort. The tale takes place at Cooper’s Charm, a peaceful, family oriented lakeside campground complete with RV hookups, cabins and scuba lessons. For the Rose sister’s it is a place that brings healing, trust, and fresh beginnings.
Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis is the second full-length novel in her Wildstone stories, and it delivered all the humor, warm, and swoons I have come to expect in a Shalvis novel. Rainy Day Friends one tugged at my heartstrings, made me laugh and feel right at home. I want a job at the family-run Capriotti Winery. Heck, I want to be adopted by them.
The Family Gathering by Robyn Carr is the third book in her small-town contemporary romance series, Sullivan’s Crossing. Dakota Jones has left the military and comes to spend time near his siblings before heading off on another adventure. Family weddings, crisis, and unconditional love find their way into this delightful, heartfelt tale.
A single mom, a little boy who dresses up like a super hero, and a rescue dog and his partner made EVERY LITTLE KISS by Marina Adair a sweet and heartwarming listen. I read the first novel, but when I saw that Renee Raudman narrated the Sequoia Lake series, I switched to audio. I am so glad that I did. It added a nice touch, and I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
