Book description
There’s no place to fall in love like the place you left your heart

Welcome to Honeymoon Harbor, the brand-new, long-awaited series by beloved New York Times bestselling author JoAnn Ross, where unforgettable characters come face-to-face with the kind of love that grabs your heart and never lets go.

Working as a Las Vegas concierge, Brianna Mannion is an expert at making other people’s wishes come true. It’s satisfying work, but a visit home to scenic Honeymoon Harbor turns into a permanent stay when she’s reminded of everything she’s missing: the idyllic small-town charm; the old Victorian house she’d always coveted; and Seth Harper, her best friend’s widower and the neighborhood boy she once crushed on—hard. After years spent serving others, maybe Brianna’s finally ready to chase dreams of her own.

Since losing his wife, Seth has kept busy running the Harper family’s renovation business and flying way under the social radar. But when Brianna hires him to convert her aging dream home into a romantic B and B, working together presents a heart-stopping temptation Seth never saw coming. With guilt and grief his only companions for so long, he’ll have to step out of the past long enough to recognize the beautiful life Brianna and he could build together.

My thoughts
This is the first book I have read by this author and it will not be the last. I enjoyed her writing style and getting to know the residents of Honeymoon Harbor. The descriptions of the town help you to see just what the characters see and where they are living. I enjoyed the small town feel of the story. It was good getting to know both Seth and Brianna and their stories. You really found yourself pulling for them and wanted them to be happy in the end. In fact as you are reading this you are full of emotions right along with the characters. I also liked how the romance was subtle and not so in your face and over the top. I can't wait to  see who we will get to meet next and what their story will be.

  1. This is a new to me author and series and sounds very interesting. dbahn(at)iw(dot)net

  2. Yes we have stayed at a B & B in at Arrowhead Inn in Durham, NC.

  3. I've never had the opportunity to stay at a B&B. We have a very special and much loved furbaby which it seems that B&B's don't allow or so we have found. I think they would be fun and maybe some day we will have the opportunity to find out first hand.
