I read the first Kowalski Family, #1 novel by Shannon Stacey and quite enjoyed it. Since then I have been meaning to catch up on the series but we all know how that goes. When I saw, she had a brand new series I decided to begin there instead. Under the Lights is the first book in the Boys of Fall series centers around the “golden boys of fall” Stewart Mills High School’s legendary championship football team. Now while the cover may scream young adult or new adult, this is in fact a contemporary adult romance with small-town charm and a little football.
One Wish is the seventh book in the Thunder Point series by Robyn Carr and it takes us back to the small town of Thunder Point located in the coastal region of Oregon. Thunder Point and its residence are carving their way into my heart and One Wish delivered on many fronts.
I was drawn to Snowed In first by the cover and had to have it when I realized the main character was a librarian. It turns out Snowed In is a novella in the Southern Comfort series. It was not numbered so I went with 2.5 based on release dates. Snowed In reads like a standalone and had me picking up the first two books. Snow, banter, romance and side characters you will be dying to meet.
I have been enjoying the Sweet, Texas series by Candis Terry. She delivers small-town romances with a touch of heat, family and delightful characters. While Sweet Surprise will not earn a place among my favorites, it was a sweet romance filled with fun, cupcakes and the second half had me smiling.
It is no secret that I love Candis Terry’s Sweet, Texas series. Cowboys, family, and a sweet romance make this series delightful. Terry makes it all the sweeter with her small-town Texas, setting. Therefore, it only makes sense that I had to add Sweet Cowboy Christmas to my Ho-Ho-Ho read-a-thon reads. I am so glad that I did. Chase and Faith were sweet, and despite it being, a novella Terry gave us a sweet slow-building romance.
It was fun returning to the small-town of Sweet, Texas in Candis Terry’s third book Something Sweeter. We met veterinarian and former Marine Jesse Wilder in the previous two novels and I could not wait for his story. Fans of small-towns, families and sweet romances will adore the Sweet, Texas series and the Wilder brothers.
I love holiday themed books and was excited to crack open Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan. I was expecting a heart-warming romance filled with holiday magic, but this novel was so much more. It turned out to be my favorite read of the holiday season! It introduced me to a new author and perhaps the greatest gift of all the O’Neil Brothers and a new series to swoon over. Mini review: Wonderfully fleshed out characters and small-town charm. This left me yearning for a holiday in Snow Crystal, Vermont.
