Blue Ridge Reunion

GIVEAWAY

 ROSS, MIA
BLUE RIDGE REUNION

Book 1-Barrett's Mill: In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a family legacy leads to love.

Chelsea Barnes never expected to see her high school rival, golden boy Paul Barrett, again. But when Paul applies for a loan to renovate his family's historic mill, it's Chelsea who the bank sends to her tiny hometown to assess the property—and Paul. It's her chance to prove herself to her boss, and Chelsea won't let Paul stand in her way. Paul would do anything to restore the mill for his ailing grandfather. Even allow the lovely Chelsea to help. Together, they just might build something beautiful…a happily-ever-after.

My Review:

Another promising series from a wonderful author. I found the idea of restoring an old mill steeped in history really appealing. And Ross does a wonderful job creating a viable small town community. So realistic I want to arrange a vacation there. Alas Barrett's Mill is a figment of the author's very active imagination and I can only travel there through stories.

The read is smooth and sweet and would easily translate well into a made for TV movie script. I could see everything playing out in my mind in such vivid detail. A great host of characters in a town with a unique character all of its own. Loved the dynamics of big city success versus small town charm. A wonderful read with an uplifting romance that made my heart sing.

    1. It has that sweet, small-town, everybody pitching in to help kind of vibe -- all centred around that old mill. Just love that. Good luck, Heidi.
