Type: Contemporary Romance
This is the first novel I have read by Ms. McKinlay, and it certainly won’t be the last. There is a lot of humor, friends, small town fun and a very sexy romance, not to mention an awesome dog and cat.
Zach Caine is the owner of Bluff Point Brewery in Bluff Point, Maine. Owning a brewery has blessed him with friends and coworkers that like to party together. They know him as a happy go lucky guy, who gives commitment a wide berth. He has a dog Rufus, a big lovable poodle who is his constant companion.
His next door neighbor Jessie Connolly is the manager of his friends veterinarian office and a single mom of two adorable girls, Maddie and Gracie. He becomes their hero when he rescues their kitten, Chaos, off his roof, and takes a scary plunge into the snow….but Chaos was fine. The kids adore him, now if he could just get Jessie on his side. A blizzard hits Bluff Point and Zach worries about Jessie and her girls when the power goes out, and he and Rufus head to the rescue. What follows is days of playing in snow, lots of hot chocolate and sleeping by the fire. But the logs aren’t the only thing on fire! Jessie is getting over a nasty divorce, and doesn’t want her kids hurt again by someone walking away. Zach has no intention of walking away…but he can’t seem to convince Jessie. Maddie and Gracie take things in their own hands to solve this dilemma.
I loved this contemporary romance, the light hearted banter, and all the characters, including the pets. Just what you need to read when your looking for some sizzles and laughs.
I obtained this book from the publisher and Netgalley for review.
