** Book Review ** MAYBE THIS KISS by Jennifer Snow



In a sweet kick-off to her new Colorado Ice series, Jennifer Snow brings us a short story about finding love again after loss … with the one that got away years ago!  I loved the characters, and my favorite “awww” moments were his interactions with her daughter … so sweet!  Great set up to the series!  Can’t wait to read more of the Westmores!

Becky Westmore is simply trying to get through the crazy hectic month of December without falling apart at the seams when she finally runs into the person she’s been avoiding since he got back into town a month ago … her ex-boyfriend from all those years ago.

Neil Healy was happy to receive his promotion to Lieutenant with the Air Force, but he wasn’t so happy that it brought him back to his hometown of Glenwood, Colorado after being gone for so many years.  He didn’t like how things ended back in the day, and being back in this town again brings all of those memories back full force.

When they finally cross paths, the old flame is still burning strong.  Neither of them wants to feel the things they are feeling, but it’s there regardless.  Will they find the courage to try again?

** Book Review ** PERFECTLY CHARMING by Liz Talley


4 1/2 STARS!

A fun follow-up to Charmingly Yours!  Liz Talley’ newest PERFECTLY YOURS brings us Jess’s story of finding herself again after being dumped by her husband.  It was fun seeing all of the girls again!

Mississippi native Jess Culpepper is smothering under memories of her first-love and now ex-husband, so she jumps at the chance to take a temporary nursing job in Florida to get a breather and adjust to her knew life.  Thanks to the money that her friend Lacy left her “to do something fun” with, she rents a condo on the beach … and strangely enough, stumbles right across her old high school lab partner!

Ryan Reyes has worked hard the last year and a half to rid himself of the nerdy persona that Jess knew back in school.  He retired from science and now owns a charter fishing boat and enjoys life way more.  He takes Jess under his wing and introduces her to some friends.

The hot attraction that flares between the two of them is a surprise, but they decide a few no-strings-attached weeks of fun might be just what the doctor ordered … but will they be able to walk away that easily?
