Juliet Montgomery has just started her counseling business in her charming hometown of Blossom Glen, Indiana. But who is going to trust a therapist with two broken engagements? She’s determined to prove to everyone—including her two amazing sisters and the tall, dark, but annoying mayor in town—that she can earn their trust.
Mayor Jack Crawford is a man of action, not words, and the endless town disputes he’s expected to arbitrate are pushing him over the edge. He didn’t even intend to become mayor—he was just trying to prevent his grandma’s ancestral land from being turned into a golf course. When Juliet deftly handles a long line of disputers, he hires her on the spot as the town counselor.
Except Juliet and Jack are like oil and water—she’s a hurricane, he’s a calm sea; she talks feelings for a living and you’d never catch him opening up about his emotions. As they deal with the quirky small town, Jack starts to wonder if the enigmatic therapist who stirs up all his wayward feelings has also managed to steal his heart.
This was a really sweet romance! This book made its way into my hands quite by chance so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did because the story was delightful. My first experience with Miranda Liasson’s writing was definitely a good one. I had no idea that this book was part of a series until I sat down to write this review so I can assure readers that this book works perfectly well as a stand-alone story.
Jack and Juliette were great together, although it took them some time to figure that out. Juliette is just starting out as a counselor in her hometown where everyone knows her history so she is questioned about her ability to give relationship advice after a few failed engagements. Jack is the town’s mayor and needs some help dealing with the people in town. Juliette ends up helping Jack out as the new town counselor and through working together they find that they are more compatible than they ever would have imagined.
I enjoyed watching Jack and Juliette fall for each other even though the romance seemed to move fairly slowly at times but that is just because they were both trying to be very careful. I thought that they had great chemistry together and I loved the fact that they had a lot of family support. The secondary characters in this story were very well done and added a lot to the story.
I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was a charming small-town romance with an unforgettable cast of characters. I look forward to reading more of this author’s work in the future.
I received a review copy of this book from Entangled: Amara.
Aww it looks so sweet too
I’ve been reading holiday romance freebies and am over them for a bit.
Probably a little too sweet for my taste. Thanks for sharing.
It’s always nice to have some nice stories like that
This one sounds like my kind of romance with the small town setting and characters who are such opposites. 😀
I typically prefer slow romances as long as the pace of the book isn’t too slow. This sounds like a great read and I love the premise.
Great review. I’ve put this on my TBR list.
