5 Stars *Reviewer TOP PICK* "Ms. Netzel has a way of creating fun-loving characters and she has them dealing with hilarious situations in the process which makes any reader crack up laughing. I loved Sugar the Great Dane and felt she was the cherry on this sweet romantic story. Well done, Ms. Netzel! Please keep the stories coming!" Diane Coyle ~ Night Owl Reviews
From the Author
A Fair To Remember is book 2 in the Welcome to Redemption series. Donna Marie Rogers' A Fair of the Heart is book 1, and both books have a short, shared scene, told from different characters' point of view. Books 3 and 4 share a scene, and books 5 and 6 also share a scene.
Go ahead and give the first two a try. If you like them, come back for more romance in Redemption, WI.
Though this is a heartwarming romance of second chances and redemption, this book is NOT to be considered Christian Fiction. Any categorization or placement of the Welcome to Redemption series as such is an error by Amazon.
Apologies to any reader who purchased it because of Amazon's mis-categorization.
Sometimes Kindle freebies are like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're going to get. But every once in a while, you reach in a select a piece of rich dark chocolate with a nougat center that makes the search worthwhile. A Fair to Remember is that coveted piece. The item description offers a glimpse into the second chapter that sets the stage for this interesting romance perfectly, so I won't try to summarize the plot. The characters truly make this story outstanding. Who would have thought a psychotic Great Dane (named Sugar, coincidentally) could be so entertaining...and bring about the romance between Wes and Tara? Wes is a great male lead. He has that irresistible "bad boy" quality, but he's turned his life around and is absolutely Prince Charming. Tara, on the other hand, is getting her signals mixed. She's really a good girl who thinks Wes is looking for a bad girl. Between a lactose intolerant dog and Tara's airbrushed tattoos, you will be laughing out loud. The romance is not lacking in this short read. One problem with its brevity is the lack of more development between Tara and Will. Although they share an instant attraction that develops quickly into a deep connection, what we do read is tender and well-drawn. I love how Wes stands up to her intimidating family to fight for her, and I'm guessing you'll love it, too. I can't wait to read the rest in this series!
A Fair to Remember (Welcome to Redemption Book 2) Kindle Edition by Stacey Joy Netzel Book 2 is about Tara Russell, her brother Wes and her parents. Also about Wes's dog, named Sugar, a Great Dane that it seemed like Tara had during the weekend. It was fair time and Tara had taken Sugar for a walk through the fair and Sugar wanted desperately to follow this one man, who wore a suit to the fair. Who does that?? Tara thought. The suit man was Wes Carter. He was relocating his business to Redemption, Wisconsin. He was ready for a small town and a quiet life. By the way, the airlines had lost his luggage and so he only had his clothes on his back. Tara had met Lauren Frazier and her children Max and Emma plus also Caleb Hunter at the Fair. Emma had an ice cream cone; well Sugar decided she wanted it too. Basically eating it down in one bite. However Sugar between not being able to tolerate lactose and all the other little things Sugar had nibbled on throughout the walk. Wes was enjoying a hamburger and was glancing around at the area where others were setting up the nights fireworks. He also thought about the stalker with the dog. He scanned the area and realized he must have finally lost them both. Wes was a former gang member, had been shot in the back and just wanted that quiet life. Next thing he heard was "Sugar heel!" Right after which he found himself face down in the grass with a Great Dane standing on his back. Remember this is the same one that had eaten all the things she should not have. Well the next sound he heard was the dog getting sick on his back. On his suit and feeling it was soaking through. What happens next, well you have to read the book to find out. Trust me you will not be disappointed.
I almost didn't read this one, since I found the first in the series, A FAIR OF THE HEART, so disappointing, but, it was short and started off better. I'm glad I read it, because it was better.
I thought it was cute when conservative realtor, Tara Russell thought Wes Carter was looking for someone wilder. Since her family owned a tattoo parlor and rode Harleys, she played the part of a woman on the wild side well, but he wanted someone tamer. He'd been a former gang member, and wanted to leave anything that reminded him of that time behind.
They met when Tara was dog sitting her brother's Great Dane, and the lactose intolerant, psychotic dog threw up on Wes's clothes and shoes. Not the best of beginnings to say the least.
I found A FAIR TO REMEMBER tamer than A FAIR OF THE HEART. It had much less profanity and no explicit sex scenes. The plot and the story line was also better.
What is not to like about this book? A hunk of a guy, a sexy lady, oh, yeah. You may dislike her bother Charlie, her Dad, Charlie's dog. But your going to like the rest. I'd have been happy to spend more time with these people in Redemption.
This is a quick, clean romance that is appropriate for all ages as it does not have any profanity or sex. The characters are fun and quirky and the romance is sweet. If you have a few minutes to kill, this is a feel good story.
Tara Russell is an over-protected 28 year old whose sister died 15 years ago which resulted in her brother and father's over-protectiveness. Despite living in her own home, Tara's father forbids her to continue a friendship with Wes, the new guy in town, because he was formally in a dangerous gang. Both Wes and Tara make quick first impressions of each other based on their exterior, but the more they get to know each other and can't deny their attraction, the more it is apparent that first impressions are not what they seem.
I really enjoyed reading this cute romance but would remind others that it is a short story and therefore characters and plot are not fully developed. Taking it for what it is, it was delightful to read.
Would I/Did I buy it? Free Download Would I read it again? Yes Would I recommend it to friends? Yes
This was a nice clean read, there isn't much to the book I did not like. It is well worth the read and I do plan to reread it at a later date. So many books you read once and never again. This is a book I will read over and over again. I plan to read all the redemption. Both I have read are outstanding.
