This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Claire Bradford needed a wake-up call. What she didn't need was a tragic car accident.

As a single mom and the owner of a successful bead shop, Claire leads a predictable life in Hope's Crossing, Colorado. So what if she has no time for romance? At least that's what she tells herself, especially when her best friend's sexy younger brother comes back to town as the new chief of police. But when the accident forces Claire to slow down and lean on others - especially Riley McKnight - she realizes, for the first time, that things need to change. And not just in her own life.

The accident - and the string of robberies committed by teenagers that led up to it - is a wake-up call to the people of Hope's Crossing. The sense of community and togetherness had been lost during those tough years. But with a mysterious "Angel of Hope" working to inspire the town, Riley and Claire will find themselves opening up to love and other possibilities by the end of an extraordinary summer....

Good Start - Real Adults

Blackberrry Summer is a good start to an engaging romantic series for discerning adults. No crude language, mild sexual situations, close friendships and low key family drama.


The cast of characters, both women and men, are flawed yet mostly likable. And best of all, the books in this entertaining series keep getting better.

Needed more

Enjoyed the story, and the characters but felt it needed one more chapter, or an epilogy.

I really liked the story. Characters were described well bringing them alive as the story progressed. Ms. Cobb performed the reading very well.

Well done!

Great book for those absorbed in their own problems. Giving to others can fill that void and maybe give back the very thing you have wanted. Loved the story and the characters! Thanks for writing this book.
