INSPIRATIONAL ROMANCE

Book 3-Holiday Harbor: Where love is just around the bend...

Running away from her troubled city life, Lauren Foster never thought she'd find herself in small-town Maine. But Holiday Harbor is everything she's looking for. The townspeople are welcoming, her job at her friend's toy store is going well and, most important, she's safe. Meeting contractor Ben Thomas soon changes all that. With his good looks, easygoing nature and kind heart, he's turning her peaceful new life upside down. She's quickly falling for the local hero, but when her past catches up to her present, is she willing to face her fears for the future she's always dreamed of?
Book One Review:  Rocky Coast Romance

They say that once you visit Holiday Harbor you never want to leave.  Well, I can say that I might leave, but I will definitely want to come back.  This series has been the perfect vacation book for me (not in the sense that I'm on vacation).  When I need a break from the booding males, the flirty females, and all the super hot sex scenes - this series is becoming my break.  (Book two is a christmas one so I'll probably read that closer to the holiday).

This book in the series was ever so slightly more preachy than the first, but it's still very subtle and not hitting you over the head with a bible.  Lauren is a little fragile when she shows up in the small village looking for a place to find herself and figure out a new path in life.  Ben is the perfect "good boy" to make make her feel comfortable and relax again for the first time in a long time.

Their relationship unfolds over a length of time very naturally - I think that is one of the things I like best about this series so far.  It's real life.  They have a handful of communication break downs.  They both have some baggage to deal with, but when you get down to it, it's two nice people falling in love.  It's just the type of story you need sometimes.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
