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.
In ANY DAY NOW by Robyn Carr, we are back at Sullivan’s Crossing and camping season is just beginning. Carr hit it out of the park with the romance, local happens and suspenseful plot. Not since the Virgin River series have I enjoyed one of her books this much.
Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis the first book in her Heartbreaker Bay series is only my second read by this wildly popular author. She delivers small-town swoony worth romances with delicious heat and it’s an intoxicating combo. Sweet Little Lies is a heartwarming tale filled with humor, an ugly mutt, and brothers. Shalvis had me reaching for truffles as I wiped away the tears.
Last year I read and loved Silver Thaw, the first book in the Mystic Creek series and was delighted to have the opportunity to review and share New Leaf by Catherine Anderson the second book in the series. Touching with a dash of heat, Anderson brings heart to this small-town series that will have you pining to move to Mystic Creek, Oregon.
