Received from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is the 5th in a series. It stood as a stand alone book for me as I have not read the previous book in this series. This book focuses on the love lives of two female characters (Jo Marie and Emily). Jo Marie has been left behind by her love interest Mark who has some unfinished business. When he leaves and she does not hear from him, she begins to move on with her life. Emily has come into town for a job and meets Nick while running on his property (and also trying to purchase his home). Both have things in their past which make it difficult to move on.
I liked this book. I did not love it. I really enjoyed the Emily/Nick story line. My one complaint with this book and all romance books is the abrupt fast endings. There is angst, there is a man in uniform,two wonderful women and a sexy contractor with troubles. Once they get past the angst boom bam the book is over. The ending felt very abrupt to me. I think a chapter or two more would not have hurt.
Overall an enjoyable read especially for summer. Nice light romance (this is not a bodice ripper) in a lovely setting. My only complaint is the abrupt fast ending.
