First Time in Forever is the first book in Sarah Morgan’s new Puffin Island series and I fell in love with the characters and island folks. I am packing my bags folks and hope you decide to come with me. The series will center on Emily, Skylar and Brittany. They are friends who met in college and have remained friends who support each other. Each book will focus on one of them and it all takes place on Puffin Island.
At Wolf Ranch by Jennifer Ryan is the first in her Montana Men series. It has so many elements I love from the wide-open spaces to hot, strong, cowboys who just happen to be brothers. Catch me before I swoon! Ryan weaved suspense, a slow-burning romance and did it all in big sky country. I inhaled At Wolf Ranch and cannot wait for more.
I loved Marina Adair’s St. Helena Vineyard series and was excited to begin her Sugar, Georgia series. Sugar’s Twice as Sweet was southern charm and small-town antics at its best. I laughed, swooned and was swept up by this slow-burning romance.
Mistletoe on Main Street is the first novel in Olivia Miles new Briar Creek series. As a big fan of holiday romance and small-town settings selecting this title was a no brainer. Set in Briar Creek, Vermont this second chance romance was sweet and I look forward to visiting again.
I listened to the audio version of Sugar Rush, the first book in the Cupcake Club by Donna Kaufman and narrated by Amanda Ronconi. Sugar Rush was a fun, predictable romance with cupcakes! It was friends, or should I say former associates to lover’s romance. Sugar Rush made me laugh, with its small –town setting, banter and community.
Carr has her groove on! The Homecoming the sixth book in her Thunder Point series gave me all the warm fuzzies I used to feel with the Virgin River series. Friends to lover’s trope with a twist made Seth and Iris’s romance a fun ride. The Homecoming was hot, funny, and full of small-town issues.
No Limits by Lori Foster is the first in her Ultimate series featuring Cannon Colter and Yvette Sweeny. We first met these characters in Foster’s Love Undercover series and this fan was eager to hear their story. No Limits delivered a knockout punch and kicked this series into high gear with a group of secondary characters that gave it a small-town feel. Wrapped in a hot, steamy romance and suspenseful tale No Limits is a necessary read for Foster fans.
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 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.
