    "This was my first book I ever read by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and it hooked me on her writing for life. I really love that her female characters are strong, but flawed. The male characters usually have forceful, domineering personalities that are brought to heel by the love of a good woman. Dr. Bonner is a smart funny woman who doesn't necessarily want a man but finds herself hooked up to the most desired bachelor in Chicago. I feel like the characters are much more real, I can picture them right here in my hometown so I can really relate to them. I think my favorite is Annie - who is still chasing people off her porch with a shotgun well into her 80's - living life on her terms. I have read this book many times and it still makes me smile. "

    "I grew up in a small town along the coast of California, so I always love reading stories that mirror my own experiences. Mackenzie's Mountain did a perfect job of that. I got caught right up in Mary Elizabeth's search for love and the startling relationship she finds herself caught up in set against a backdrop I was very familiar with. I highly recommend it."

    "This is the second book in the Virgin River series and I enjoyed every word of it. Robyn Carr is an excellent writer and really knows how to make the characters come alive. The first book was good, but this one is great! The one thing I like most about Carr's books is that she always brings previous characters into her new books. Highly recommended read!"

    "Taking place in Salvation, North Carolina the book touches on a lot of situations and struggles. If you're looking for a small town love story that doesn't go way over the top then this would be a great choice. It started off a bit slow but picked up rather rapidly and I genuinely enjoyed it."

    "This is a clean romance about a young couple who were not 'supposed' to be together. Katie had loved, or thought she loved her high school sweetheart and that he equally loved her. But he just upped and left her heartbroken. Now his older brother Levi is so very much nicer than him in every way. He has noticed Katie and loved her from afar. When she's left, even her supposed best friend can't be bothered with her but she forms a deeper friendship with Levi that she never anticipated. The more they get to know one another, the more she realizes that he is the brother she should have been with all along. Read this book and see why she falls in love with Levi. But will people talk? Will they care? can they have their own HEA? This is a clean romance with no s@xy scenes but there is plenty of romance."
