When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed’s new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace’s sister Morgyn’s business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn’t ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

My Thoughts:

Morgyn Montgomery seems to be a carefree woman who just goes with the flow.  My imagery kicked in almost right away.  I could see her as an updated flower child.  Graham Braden may just have met his match.  Look up the definition of book boyfriend and you’ll see him listed.

This past Fall, the Beach Boys were playing at our local fair.  I could easily picture Morgyn standing out amongst the crowd.  Then I could see Graham coming in and everyone would notice his presence.  If you have a big family, you may feel right at home with the Montgomery’s.  Maybe you have a great comradery with your siblings; Morgyn may be a great addition.  Graham just seems to be a great compliment to her – he lets her shine.

I wasn’t feeling good while reading this author’s latest.  Sometimes it’s hard to get through a book when that happens.  But this author just has a way of creating a story where you can just sit back and relax and enjoy the world she creates.  Speaking of creativity, I’m impressed with what Morgyn can do.  It makes me wonder if our author has done some of what Morgyn has created.  I would love to have the chance to go and putz around in her shop.

There’s plenty of chemistry and heat but at the same time the story just seems so sweet.  Morgyn is the small town girl who meets the big city guy.  It was interesting to watch how our author created their interactions.  There’s plenty to giggle at and plenty of places where you’ll need to fan yourself.  It’s hard to miss our couple’s instant connection.  Some may feel that the sibling vibe is just too perfect but just remember that this is a work of fiction.  We don’t see the whole family life and after all it’s not called creative license for nothing.  She also shows that not all families are faultless.  Some people read in order to escape for a little while and know that they’re going to get that happy ending.  But our author gives us a little shock which sets us up for the next book in the series.


“What are your three most favorite things?” Morgyn asked as she strummed the guitar.
“That’s a hard one.”
“Okay, and the next two?” She bumped him with her shoulder, looking as sweet as she did sexy wearing one of his flannel shirts over her dress.
He loved her quirky sense of humor.
“Shouldn’t that be one of your favorite things?” he teased.
She shifted her gaze up toward the sky and strummed a faster tune, singing, “It’s your turn, not mine.”
“I’ve got a lot of favorite things.” He ran his fingers along her leg. “Your sexy legs.”
Her eyes darkened, and she played a little slower.
“And the way flecks of darker blue glitter in your eyes when you get turned on.”
“Cracker,” she said just above a whisper.
“I can’t help it that you’re beautiful.”
“Stop. You’re embarrassing me. Tell me something real.”
“That was real, and number three would be your free spirit.”
“Says Mr. Prepared, who brought a pop-up shower stall, a battery-operated heater, and a Coleman stove like my grandfather used. I’m willing to bet there’s a kitchen sink around here somewhere.”
“No sink, but I can rig one up if you need it.” He leaned in for a kiss, lingering because her kisses were unlike any others. She kissed with the same energy she seemed to do everything else, giving herself over to it completely, savoring every second.
Her eyes remained closed for a few heated seconds after their lips parted. When she opened them, a sated smile appeared like a gift. He wondered if she kissed other guys like that, or if she felt the same unfamiliar, unstoppable connection he did.
“I like kissing you, sunshine.” He brushed her hair behind her ear and kissed her again, slower and sweeter than the last. “I’m adding that to my list. I think I need more than three things.”
