Publisher's Summary

As the youngest mayor Trillium Bay has ever elected, Brooke Callaghan wants to prove she’s up to the challenge. She’s stepping out of her practical teacher flats and into her sister’s treacherously high heels...with disastrous results. But if she’s going to (literally) stumble her first day on the job, why not fall into the arms of a handsome stranger?

Leo Walker is a rarity on Wenniway Island. Not only handsome, he’s also single, funny, and - most importantly - interested in Brooke. Unfortunately, his reasons for being on the island are temporary, so in spite of the undeniable chemistry between them, he’s not a forever kind of guy.

When a private investigator arrives with news of a jewel thief hiding on the island, Brooke finds herself dealing with one kerfuffle after another, and Leo proves to be a delicious distraction. What does she really know about him, though? And the biggest question of all? Does this short-term romance hold the possibility of long-term love?

A+

I really enjoyed this book. I have read several of Brogan’s books and this one might be my favorite. Amy McFadden performs all her work well. She has a comforting voice and can deliver humor and sarcasm.
It’s hard to find love in a small secluded town, especially if you are on an island. And we all know how hard it is to get back on the proverbial horse after a hard fall. That is why Brooke Callaghan is still single in her mid 30s. I would go into more about the handsome stranger that she meets, in a quite comical way, but I don’t want to give any spoilers.
Small towns are known for having gossips and scandals and this story doesn’t disappoint. You also get a glimpse at the reasons people will spread tall tales. At the “end of the day” family, friends and love, it what life is all about.

Yes and NO!

The Yes of book 2—“My Kind of Forever”:
This story continues from the end of Book 1. To start, Brook, the older sister, has been elected Mayor of the Island. The story continues from book 1, “My Kind of You”. This is a story of the Callaghan family and friends on this Island. Secrets and small talk and small-town gossip rules the momentum of this story. It is cute and you get to feel you know the characters.

Now for the NO:
This is a story set in Michigan, on Mackinac Island, an historical tourist landsite. This story has been placed on this Island and yet TB calls it Trillium Bay, and calls the famous Mackinaw Bridge, Petoskey Bridge. WHY??? BTW--there is no Petoskey Bridge and Petoskey is a real city but found north of Traverse City on the NW coast of Michigan. It cannot be seen from the Mackinac Island, which lies North in Lake Huron. All other points of Mackinaw run true--no cars –horses and bicycles only---about 500 people live there year-round--historical sites to visit--famous old hotel. Why would you write about a real place and change its name to Run-Away Island and Trillium Bay? If you wish to change store name and such --that would be understandable ---But don't mess up the geography and misplace things that truly exist.

Finally, The story is a nice idea. For me a bit too much of the gibber gabber of the daily mundane. I (as stated) feel it is wrong to mess up the geography. If you want a false, world then you need to build one with your words. I do understand the draw to a writer to want to write a story about Mackinac Island. But just like a Fiction written in NY City--- Use it’s proper names and locations.

Nice Addition to Series Overall with some Quirks

This story was ok. Listeners get caught up with characters of Trillium Bay. It was a bit long though just to hear about their everyday lives. The main female, Brooke is independent and on her own which is great to see in a romance. She's mid 30's so that's a nice change from late 20's to early 30's. I liked the main male Leo. He wasn't all full of angst like so many other male characters. Brooke though has some issues which are pretty annoying. For a woman in her 30's, she's kind of whiny and a bit too concerned about what others think of her and what she does in her private life. Plus she's the one with the angst over a past boyfriend. Seriously, by that point in your life, it seems like a person would've moved on from the past. I don't know why writers keep doing this in their stories. Either the male, female or both usually have past love issues and it's time for that theme to vanish. Of course, love wins in the end, as always.
