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.
Sweetest Mistake is my second trip to Sweet, Texas a small town in Candis Terry’s Sweet, Texas series. Last year I read and enjoyed Anything But Sweet. Sweetest Mistake was in a word, yummy. This tale features firefighter and ex-marine Jackson Wilder. It is a friendship to lover, second chance romance with lovable, flawed characters, and I literally consumed this.
I am not going to lie, I saw the synopsis and jumped at that chance to read Cider Brook by Carla Neggers, before realizing I was stepping into book three of the Swift River Valley series. I mean can you blame me, look at that synopsis. Firefighter. Treasure hunter. Rescuer. While this can be read as a standalone, I think I would have enjoyed this more from the beginning. Mini review: Low romance, interesting treasure hunt, small-town magic.
Wind Chime Café is the first in the Wind Chime series by Sophie Moss. From the setting to the characters I slid right into this feel good tale. Moss delivered an engaging tale with few twists and characters that wrapped around my heart. Mini review: Small-town charm, sweet romance with a Navy Seal hero and a little girl who will steal your heart.
Every time I travel back to Thunder Point I fall a little more in love with this Oregon town and The Chance delivered all of the heart-warming things I adore about small-town settings. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone but I recommend starting at the beginning. Mini review: a touching tale that shares a romance and the lives of several key characters.
