I was sure that this book was going to be a winner and let me just say that it exceeded my expectations! I love the author’s style and the town she has created. Apple Grove is one of my favorite places to visit and I didn’t think anything could make me love it even more but the addition of a sexy firefighter might have convinced me that small towns definitely have appeal. I am so happy to catch up with old friends and family that I met in the first two books, but I don’t think you absolutely need to read the previous stories to love this one. But if you haven’t read the first two books, trust me pick them up and read them you will not be sorry. C. H. Admirand writes great characters, readers become attached to them because they are people you really love to know.
