Title: CHANCE AT LOVE ON MYSTIC BAY
Author: Karice Bolton
Source: bought on kindle
*Can be read as a standalone*
Maddie has never been boy crazy. She’s never cared about relationships. She’s never dreamed of a knight in shining armor coming to her rescue. She’d much rather build her own empire and spend nights in with a cup of tea and a good book, and she’s found the perfect place to do both, Fireweed Island. Granted, she has very good reasons why she avoids the opposite sex, but those secrets will never escape her lips.
But when she promises the wonderful woman who owns a lavender farm on Hound Island that she’d meet her son and tour the farm, she had no idea her world would turn upside down.
If she were to pick a dream guy, he’d be it.
Chance doesn’t have time to date or worry about relationships. He’s living his father’s dreams and making sure his mom will be set if he decides to leave the farm and pursue his real passion. The problem is that Chance’s mother hasn’t stopped rattling off reasons why he needs to meet the “girl who owns the tea shop”, and when he finally makes the trek to Fireweed Island, he realizes his mom was right.
Maddie is incredible.
But she’s also not interested. It’s written all over her face.
And this is why Chance has given up on the idea of finding someone. It’s just too complicated.
...Until she devises a plan that he just can't resist.
Maddie has her reasons for traveling halfway across the country, leaving behind her family, her past and whatever trust in men she may have had left. Fast forward a few years and Maddie wants to see if there are any good guys out there. When Chance Harlen comes blazing in to her store and saving it from ruin, she thinks she may have found her man.
Yes this book could be read as a standalone. But my question would be...WHY would you want to only read just one? This whole series is absolutely amazing and one of my very favorites by Bolton. I get the squishy, ooey gooey heart flutters with each and every book in the series. And not to mention, I seriously smile the whole way through them all. Bolton delivers brilliant writing, terrific characters, and amazing atmosphere. So yeah? Why read just one? Get them all!
Chance is such a terrific guy who could do no wrong and has the patience of a saint when it comes to Maddie. I am cracking up right now thinking about her silly antics and how he calmly handled her and her crazy ideas. I am so glad to get their story and it was a fresh one at that. I just love how Bolton gives each couple a story with a unique twist and sweet romance.
Fun and enjoyable, sweet and romantic...CHANCE AT LOVE ON MYSTIC BAY is sure to meet all your bookish needs! 5 Stars!
