Overall, this was a warm, sweetly told narrative with challenges, dramas and a smattering of humour. It also had well-developed and attractive characters who were easy to relate to. I have read Lucy Score's publications before and had no hesitation in downloading this one. Criticisms: (going out on a limb here after reading other reviewers) I thought the first 35%, or so was on the slow side and had patched scenes. This was mainly because there were a lot of characters introduced, who were associated with the farm; all with their own issues and backstories. This included the two main characters, Carter and Summer, of course. In addition, the setting and Blue Moon's minor characters all needed explanations, too. Hence, the frustrating, staggered effect and every time the story hit it's rythm, the plot would be redirected again. No doubt, all this information was essential in setting up the series, but it took away from this book. I have to admit, despite my interest, I thought about aborting several times (that's why I gave it only 4 stars.) However, it geared up after this point and took readers on a journey where Carter and Summer's story was woven with skill and intimacy. Despite coming from different worlds, they were simply made for each. The majority of the narrative was engaging to read and their stories (secrets) unfolded, while their lust for each other developed into love.
This series will make you fall in love with the idea of small town living. I bought this and then immediately bought the rest straight after. This book follows the hilarious journey of pain, love and hope for both Summer and Carter after previous issues from the past haunt their current lives. Once they move that aside, wow, the heat could sizzle sausages. Love this book and this series. 10/10 for sure
This was a lovely romance read. I really liked the hero and the heroine and their journey to falling in love. Both characters were strong, relateable people. I am definitely looking forward to reading more about the town of Blue Moon and the Pierce brothers!
