Delphi Gifford has nearly given up on finding someone she could love as much as her dead husband, Fallon, who had died while they were still in college. Certainly local photographer Jeremy Litster wasn't at the top of her list, egomaniac that he is - even if he did drive the hottest racing motorbike she'd ever touched.
Jeremy knew George DiCarlo had hand-picked him to marry Delphi, but hadn't counted on her not being in the loop. After working together for six months, though, he seriously regrets his misstep and begins a careful campaign to win her over. When someone tries to take the two of them out, he has to figure out what they did or saw that put them both in danger.

The story. Delphi's strong, independent side. How she was true to herself.
The first four DiCarlo Brides books come to mind, of course. All of these girls are thrown in together by their mutual father. I've enjoyed reading their similar stories from each unique perspective.
It was fine for the most part, but there were a few times I felt her inflection was off. Other times the reading seemed a bit flat when there should have been more emphasis or emotion.
No. Not really.
I really like this series and was looking forward to Delphi's story. Heather Tullis creates well developed characters, an interesting atmosphere at a somewhat remote resort hotel in Colorado, and a great premise for laughter, angst, and falling in love. Delphi and Jeremy had a lot of chemistry, but took their budding relationship slow. Love pretty much took them both by surprise in this charming and well written story. 4 stars.
Yes so far this is my favorite book in the series.
Naturally I would compare it to any other book in the series, there's not really any other books other than Black dagger that take a certain character and give them each their own book
Valerie did a fantastic job telling the story, you grow quite used to her voice. I'm really glad that the author chose the same narrator for the entire series to make it more cohesive
this series does need to be read in order for better understanding. this series follows a group of sisters did find out about each other after the loss of their father. in this book we follow the Delphi on her journey, I never would have guessed that she was an outdoorsy bike riding woman. I quite enjoyed her character that she was not the weepy I need a man have to lean on a man heroine that her sisters were. I think the ending was adorable, can't wait to read the last and final book. I listen to this book on audible the narrator did an amazing job bringing the story to life. I am glad that she read the entire series, you get quite used to her voice and now picture them with each character.
Delphi and Jeremy have all that playful banter I was looking for in the last book. I loved their whole dynamic, once he stopped fighting his attraction for her.
Delphi is a Wild Child under those button downed suits. I loved seeing her let loose. I did not expect these elements of her personality and or her back story. She really is a complex gal! I adore the match with Jeremy and all they shared. They have some of the best scenes in the series here in this book . Motorcycle shopping was a riot!
There is a side danger, story. That was more predictable but no less enjoyable. I saw it coming a mile away, but it worked to keep the story moving along and be more than a simple romance.
While this is a romance and character's have sex, it is strictly closed door. No details for the naughty readers. I don't mind the cleaner romances, so no problem here. The fact that they do sleep together knocks it out of the Christian Romances. It is a pretty clean read though, plenty of kisses but no erotic details or thoughts.
It is a mixed narrative, so you get both sides of the story from the leads. It makes for a well rounded story. It is great getting to see Delphi struggle and grow, it is rather like the growing pains Cami went through with the sisters.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Valerie Gilbert, who is definite favorite. I always enjoy her reads and the energy she puts into the read. She has a nice brisk pace, I never have to speed things up when listening. Her voices are varied and consistent, it is always a pleasure to see what she is going to do with a book. The women are great and the men are just deep enough without going into a false tone. She is a perfect for the series!
One thing that bothered me about the side plot, what happened to the gold and the mine? If it was said, I missed it. Who has rights to that bounty?
One more sister left and one yummy fella to go!
