I really enjoyed this story and read it in pretty much one sitting. It was funny and sweet with just a hint of heat. I love a romance based in a small town setting. As much as the rumor-mills of a small town annoy me, they are sometimes the best part of the story.
I adored Lucy and how much she cared about being there for her step-sister and nephew, despite everything Julia had put her through in the past. She has a lot more patience than I do because I couldn't deal with Julia's demands and sense of entitlement.
Brogan was sweet and funny but he could be really dense and insensitive at times. For as much as he didn't want people to think he was with Julia, he didn't really do a good job of acting like he wasn't sometimes. Then when he writes that note...oh hell no! It was gonna take a lot for him to redeem himself after that. In the end I think that everything fell into place the way it was supposed to.
If you like true contemporary romance set in a small town environment then this is a perfect book for you.
*I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
I received a copy of this story from the publisher via netgalley for the purpose of an honest review. my opinions are my own.
Lucy Doolan is reluctantly coming back home. Her manipulative stepsister needs her help with her teenage son. Lucy only agreed because her pregnant sister was put on bed rest with a little stress as possible. Parker is a surly teenage boy who has had to deal with the town whispering about the possibilities of who is his father. Brogan Reese didn't really want to come back home either but a good friend talked into opening one of his organic health food stores in town, now he is struggling to keep a stead flow of customers to stay open and keep working a deal with the New York investors to open another store there.
Brogan finds out about Lucy's marketing expertise and hires her. Her marketing genus isn't all Brogan wants, he wants her in his bed. Lucy is hesitant because even though she has fantasized about him since high school he is also her step sisters ex boyfriend. Brogan convinces her of a short affair while they are both in town and Brogan also agrees to be Parker's mentor/father figure. Everything that you would expect to happen, happens.
At times funny and a bit sweet with a half way decent ending but overall I just didn't like it that much.
I really felt sorry for Keith. He bites his teeth because of his many problems. Poor guy, he lost his wife and the mother of Maddie in a car crash. He's a cautious and good father. However, there is the relationship with his mother. It is far from perfect. Can it even be called a relationship? Since he left home at thirteen years old, he talks about his mother like she's a stranger.
Then, there is Bertie. She lives in Harmony, North Carolina too. There is a house she's always loved, a Victorian one. When Keith, a Pro Tennis player, wants to buy the house, all sorts of feelings erupt including soon a strong attraction. This is an example of Bertie's love for beauty and knowledge of Vintage items. She has a 1950 green chrome and formica table in her kitchen. How many people know that much about their kitchen table?
I especially enjoyed Karaoke Night at the "Dog." I thought it was an original part of the book. I once had a skirt like the one worn by one of the ladies in the group. It's described in the romance as pink with black poodles. Taylor Swift sings "Because I Need You." There is also Scott who likes Bertie. He comes on too aggressively. Bertie find it difficult to tell him off. This is because she's known him for so long. Also, there are deep feelings for his mother who taught her in first grade.
I would easily pick up another romance by Michele Summers. I hope there are less curse words in "Not So New In Town." An excerpt is found in the back of the book.
