But Archer realized his mistake and though it took some time, he was ready to make it right. For everyone involved.
And Christmas in Blissful was the perfect setting for magic, romance and a rekindled flame.
Can Archer and Ally find a way to let go of the past and reach for a future beyond Christmas Day?

Review ~ A Spoonful of Sugar by Kate Hardy

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Tyler Carter is a healthy-eating gym owner who doesn’t bake. When his employees enter him into a bake-off contest to raise money for Harry’s House, an after school space for kids commemorating local first responder Harry Monroe, he needs to learn–fast!

Shy special needs teacher Stacey Allman loves to bake and often dreams of sharing her confections with her uber fit, gorgeous neighbor. So when Tyler sets off his smoke alarm and explains his dilemma, she can’t resist the temptation of playing pastry chef tutor. He offers boxing lessons in exchange. More time together? Yes please,

But when Tyler’s ex comes back to Marietta asking for his help, will it derail Stacey and Tyler’s chance at love, or will it make them see that they’re the perfect fit?

A Spoonful of Sugar is book two in the Bachelor Bake-Off series, and this time we get health conscious gym owner Tyler, whose staff entered him into the bake-off knowing he can’t even cook grilled cheese. So when Tyler sets off his smoke alarm during an attempt to bake a cake he finally gets an official introduction to his cute by shy neighbor, Stacey Allman. Stacey is a heroine you can get behind and I applaud Kate Hardy for this character. She is sympathetic and kind, sweet and shy, but along the way she learns that she is stronger and smarter than her family ever let her believe. When these two meet up for baking lessons, it is a sweet romance even grandma will love.

What I loved about A Spoonful of Sugar was the small town feel and getting to catch up with the people of Marietta. The drama was minimal, almost too minimal but for a sweet romance it got the job done. I liked Tyler a lot, but Lyle is the one who stole the show for me and I hope he gets a story in this series too. The thing I had a problem with is that Kate Hardy spent a lot of time talking about how to bake and at times it felt more like an homage to baking than a small town romance. The author more than made up for it with the actual bake-offs, but it slowed down the pace of the book a bit too much. Overall I enjoyed this title, but I enjoyed book one more.

Review ~ New Year’s at the Graff by Marin Thomas

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

After being banned from celebrating the holidays with his stepfamily, San Diego businessman Lucas Kendrick arrives in Marietta, Montana, in time to attend the New Year’s Eve celebration at the Graff Hotel. The rodeo-theme party isn’t his style but he’s drawn to the pretty cowgirl running the dice table. When the clock strikes midnight and they ring in the New Year with a kiss, Lucas almost forgets he’s in Marietta on business and not pleasure. He believes he’s found the perfect property for his prized client. There’s just one problem—the pretty cowgirl has her sights set on the same piece of real estate.

Now that single mom Ava Moore has earned a business degree, she wants to help other struggling women get back on their feet by opening a co-op on Main Street. The last thing she expects is competition from the handsome city slicker whose New Year’s kiss she hasn’t been able to forget. Lucas isn’t only stealing Ava’s heart he’s bonding with her daughter. Can Ava convince Lucas that the best business deals are made with the heart and not money?

New Year’s at the Graff is a fun small town romance featuring a single mother, her adorable little girl and the big city businessman who steals their hearts. Ava has finally finished her education and she is determined to move on from being a housekeeper to a business woman helping other single mothers get back on their feet. She isn’t looking for love, so when she spots the handsome well-dressed stranger on New Year’s Eve, she’s surprised by how strongly she’s affected by him. Marin Thomas did a great job of bringing me right back to Marietta and the chocolate shop, Grey’s Saloon and all the happenings in this adorable small town.

The thing that I liked best about New Year’s at the Graff was the low-key, angst free way Lucas and Ava got together. Other than a few hot kisses, they took time to get to know each other and though they both fell fast, they didn’t jump into anything. This is definitely a beautiful romance but the other relationships in the story really made me love it. Tilly, Ava’s mother in law, and her quirks were fun and entertaining, but the way Marin Thomas wrote Lucas and Princess Sophie made them the true scene stealers, in my opinion. Even his relationship with his mother and then his father kept me reading just to see what was happening.

This was a fun and short romance that I’m happy I got a chance to read. Fun times are always had in Marietta.

Happy Holidays!!!

Happy holidays to you and those you love, and thank you all for helping to make 2017 a wonderful year filled with great stories, amazing authors and fun friends. Here’s to an even better 2018!
