Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener,

The temperature's on "sizzle" again in Beaumont, South Carolina, where peach trees are in season and ripe for the picking. So is its newest entrepreneur, Annie Fortenberry, who has inherited her grandmother's B&B (and its eccentric handyman Erdle Thorney). According to a local psychic, she also inherited a spirit from its glory days as a brothel - not the kind of publicity the Peach Tree Bed & Breakfast needs if it's hosting millionaire Max Holt's upcoming wedding!

If rumors of a naughty, prank-playing ghost aren't stressful enough, a mysterious man has arrived with an eye on Annie and her master suite. Wes Bridges is all leather and denim, sporting a two-day beard, straddling a Harley, and sending the B&B's testosterone level through the roof.

Annie's cool demeanor may be dropping as fast as Wes' jeans, but leave it to her missing ex-husband to dampen the passion! Turns out someone has done him in, and all evidence points to Annie! Wrapped up in a murder plot, Annie must find the killer, save her own neck, and get back to where she was - wrapped up in Wes' strong, loving arms.

We guarantee that you're going to have as much fun listening to Full Bloom as we had writing it! (Even if we were surprised by the ending!) And you won't want to miss the hair-raising shenanigans when Fleas, the hound dog, meets the most cantankerous, snooty, bad-tempered, 22-pound orange cat.

Peach Tree Bed & Breakfast, we have been to plenty of country B&B's ... such memories.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Cute Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Full Bloom to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the book.

What did you like best about this story?

Easy reading, couldn't put it down. Nice short summer romance. A sequel would be great.

What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Lorelei is a very good reader. She gets the character down to total believable. She brings all the emotions and attitudes of the characters Great Job!!!.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

And she didn't do it.

Such a disappointment

I love the Stephanie Plum series read by the same narrator so I thought for sure this would be a hit. Instead the plot was hackneyed, the ending lame and all the voices were retreads of the Plum family without the wit. I won't be fooled again. It's Plum or nothing!

Full Bloom by Charlotte Hughes

Bad dialogue, bad plot, really bad reader. Well, you might like it if you enjoy pointless sex talk without a plot.
