It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

These authors are auto downloads for me, but they surprised again with an even better novel this time...
Very smart, funny and loving story. You don’t want to put it down until it is 2/3 am and you have no choice 😌
As always, the build up is strong with lots of emotion and surprises until the end when the HEA makes everything worth the long wait.
Totally amazing 😍

I was intrigued at first but got tired of the way the H/h had to survive in the Amazon w/ very little supplies and facing incredible problems counting on lucky and the hero’s training alone.

By the end of the book I was counting the minutes for it to end. The epilogue was not necessary at all...

If you like to stay on edge for most of the listen, I’ll like this book.

She is a great writer but this one is a little over the top for me...

Loved it. It seems that 9 siblings are too many but, as the books goes by, you wish this series never ended, it’s so good. I will read it all over when I’m done... ❤️❤️

This series keeps getting better and better. The Bennets are a loving and caring family, always ready to put their hands on whatever needs to be done to help.

Their alpha sons are so hot and funny you fall for them from the beginning. Nadine is strong and just like Eva, is very lonely and has lived without siblings and love. Sweet story about friendship and family...

Great romance w/ funny moments...
A lot is expected as it is p&p replayed by a small town group of people that decide to audition, after discovering 2 famous actors are joining the play.

Real life and fiction is mixed in this lovely book. I loved h/h and the secondary characters. A little of drama and angst to fill the plot and make it more enjoyable...

Sadie Miller isn't expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straitlaced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her as if she's the same teenage hoodlum who fled town 10 years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man but to a bed-and-breakfast. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw.

I used to believe there were lines in life you don't cross. Don't lie. Don't cheat. Don't steal. Until I learned people don't always practice what they preach. I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything. Then I got the call no one wants, and I'm back in New Orleans. What I don't expect is for her to be here, too. Another line you don't cross? Don't touch your best friend's little sister. She's always been off-limits. Too bad I don't follow the rules anymore.
