Moonlight Kiss by LuAnn McLane
Cricket Creek, Kentucky, is a sweet river town known for its baseball, shopping, and cuisine. After finally rebounding from the recession, the residents are ready to repair their lives—and their hearts…
After two very public broken engagements with two very famous men, Addison Monroe is ready to avoid the spotlight. She decides to put her wedding planning experience to good use by opening a bridal boutique. Setting up shop in small town Kentucky is the perfect way to escape prying eyes and live a quiet, single life.
Investment consultant Reid Greenfield is fed up with weddings—and not his own. He’s certain his sister’s plan to turn their family farm into a wedding reception venue will lead to bankruptcy. Reid hopes that city girl Addison will be an ally in getting his sister to change her mind before she loses her savings. Instead, Addison adores the idea and jumps on board. It’s a risky business—especially once romance gets involved. But sometimes a little risk brings a huge reward…
LuAnn McLane has written a funny light-hearted romance centered around a charming quiet little town. Addison leaves her home after broken engagements to try to get away and rethink what she wants to do and how to get on with her life. She meets up with her cousin, Mia, who encourages her to move there and start a new business, in of all fields weddings. This charming town has created a new idea of having weddings in the area with the local business together called Wedding Row. After almost going under the town is getting back on its feet with a lot of help from young people coming back to town to help out. Reid is one who has returned and is not encouraged by the wedding scene. He thinks that it will not be profitable for the town and especially his family. The story is about more than one romance and also someone from Addison’s past coming to try to make amends.
The quiet small town is fascinating with all the different people involved in trying to make a living and above all several fun light hearted romances going on. This was an enjoyable easy read book that made it seem like it would be fun to live in a small town. I want to read the other books in the Cricket Creek series to enjoy more of the author's fun creative writing. I liked the story line on how people can change their lives in order to overcome problems and situations.
