I received a copy of this book through the GoodReads First Reads giveaway I liked Olivia, and Luke grew on me I dislike romance novels in which the main male character is so broken down and tortured that they act like a jerk to everyone the entire time, and I thought Luke was angsty and gruff without crossing the line into being a complete jerk At times, I found some of his dialogue a bit trite, but overall I liked Luke and Olivia s interactions and relationship Also, I m an animal lover, so I r [...]

I absolutely loved this book I couldn t put it down and finished the entire book in a matter of hours The characters were easy to fall in love with and relate to I didn t want the book to end and look forward to reading from Ms Shirley Jump I was not thrilled with the amount of language in the book and some of the book got rather steamy I definitely wouldn t feel comfortable recommending this book to my grandma, but it was a fun read for myself I won a copy of this book in a GoodReads giveaway
An enjoyable new series from Shirley Jump The meddling Sweetheart Sisters, grannies who aren t opposed a little bourbon with breakfast, are than willing to provide advice with a nudge Some of my favorite bits of advice when life hands you lemons, you make limoncello Favors done for the neighbor fine Are best accompanied by a bottle of wine.
I loved this book Shirley definitely has another winner with this one This is the perfect book to read in the summer outside with some iced tea or a margarita, or in the fall winter with some hot tea or hot cocoa The characters are deep, funny and make me wish I could visit this town I seriously could not put this book down.
A refreshing romance where a stray dog and an old lady help bring together two people who are suffering from their own personal tragedy and pain Its a story of love, life, family and healing An excellent read I received this book from a giveaway on.
Sweetheart Bargain was a winner from the opening line to the last word Who could not fall in love with Chance, Miss Sadie, our hero and herione And those retirement home girls where the frosting on the cake Here is a Markers Mark toast to a good read.
Angst, with a candy coated shell Small town romance with a backbone It never descends into depression but the author also doesn t take us to Saccharine Small Town Puke Inducing Land either It s a nice balance Looking forward to the next book in the series.
I loved this book It was heart touching I loved how this book had its good happy parts and how it had its sad heart touching parts This book had me crying on some pages and happy on other pages Can t want for the next book to come out in February 2014.
ooooh, Miss Shirley I am not happy with you making me wait until FEBRUARY for the next one No, that just doesn t work for me Absolutely enjoyed this book Full review to come soon Where I will for sure be doing grumbling because I have to WAIT 3
