THE ONLY THING BETTER THAN A SURPRISE FLING…
Sugar Creek, Vermont, is a world away from Los Angeles for high-powered, media-obsessed Harper Day. When she took the job doing publicity for the Cupcake Lovers, she never expected to be won over by the town’s old-fashioned charms. But that was before she moved into the Victorian vacation home of her dreams and fell in with a man whose good looks and irresistible ways are anything but small-town…
IS FINDING TRUE AND LASTING LOVE.
Sam McCloud is a widowed father of two. He and bossy, big-city Harper appear to have nothing in common… though the attraction they feel toward one another cannot be denied. But will their romance last longer than the day’s headlines? There’s more to Harper than meets the eye, and as it turns out, she needs to get married—fast. Little does Harper know that family-man Sam will do whatever it takes to keep her in Sugar Creek—even if that means taking matters into his own hands. And never letting her go…in the fourth novel in the Cupcake Lovers series, In the Mood For Love.

I love this series. The characters are engaging and the story unpredictable. I was rooting for Harper and Sam all the way. They are opposites, but it works without strain. Sam’s kids are a wonderful counterpoint to the steamy romance. In the Mood for Love brings in several subjects that are important in real life–veterans with PTSD and mental illness–subjects I’ve covered in my own books. I sped through the book, enjoying the ride.
My only qualification to a high recommendation is that I felt let down at the end. For me, Harper’s problem was too easily solved for the hype it received through most of the book. Nonetheless, it’s a fun read and I look forward to reading more in the series!
