The small town of Honey Hill isn’t big enough to handle the feud between Mayor Lunden Pierce and its newest resident, Quade Cannon.
Cannon unexpectedly inherits the Honey Hill Inn and when he makes plans to sell, Lunden won’t have it. She hatches a plan to use her powers of seduction to make Quade fall in love with the town —but soon it’s more than just the town he begins to fall for.
This book felt like a Hallmark movie with some seasoning. It hit all the familiar cozy beats of a made-for-tv romance. Like this man was literally driving into a small town while telling his best friend he plans to get in and get out because small-town life isn’t for him.
I was like…lol, you must be new here.
I thought this was a delightful small-town romance. Avery populates the town with a variety of residents–and allows them to have a backstory. Joy Avery’s dialogue is cheeky and full of innuendo. Though I wasn’t the biggest fan of the heroine’s six-year-old son always misunderstanding and asking questions about the sexual innuendo he overhears.
I hadn’t heard of Joy Avery before and I can’t wait to check out some of her backlist.
Honey Hill is a vibrant small-town filled with characters I can’t wait to visit again.
This is a Montlake Romance (Amazon’s imprint) and I find I consistently enjoy books from them. The pacing is always spot on.
