Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn - and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

Parker and Grayson have been emailing each other for months, when they finally get to meet each other its not how Parker though it would go. Grayson is looking after her house in Wellfleet and stumbles across her in a drunken state covered in M&Ms. After getting over her embarrassment, she sees Grayson in a different light and develops feeling for him. He helps her overcome the loss of her best friend Bert, and he loves her dog Christmas. While in Wellfleet she starts to relax and enjoy a life she could only image, she meets the girls from Seaside as well as Grayson's family. The story takes us on a journey of discovery and heartache and what ifs. I have also listened to the audio version, which is told by male and female narrators. Takes a bit a getting used to but after a few minutes of listening you get immersed into the book. Loved this book, well done Addison

This is the second book in the Snow sisters series. It mainly focuses on Kaylie and Chas's relationship as they approach parenthood. In between the story is the growing relationship between Danica and Blake as they head towards living together. Add in the side characters of Gage and Sally it makes for a great listen. Sometimes Kaylie comes across as a whining teenager, but as you get further into the book you realise she lets her past control her future. BJ Harrison is a great narrator.

Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life. Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants.

Blake Carter is a ski shop owner and former Acro-skier and a playboy. Danica Snow is a therapist and big sister who cares about everyone. When Blake's best friend dies he is thrown into a downward spiral of not knowing what to do. After one to many one night stands Blake decides to get in touch with a therapist, which turns out to be Danica. From the start there is a spark of romance. Danica tries to fight this all the way, but Blake finally wears her down. This is a lovely book that also introduces Kailey her sister and some of the Braden family who are Blake's cousins. Loved the interaction with Danica and Kaley who are polar opposites for sisters. Great narration from BJ Harrison

I loved this story. Blue Ryder has been trying to get Lizzie Barber to go out with him for over a year. She has been resisting as she has a secret that she has never shared with anyone. While Blue is fixing her kitchen he asks Lizzie for a date, she finally says yes. She sees that there is a life outside her secret, it also reminds her that she needs to come clean with Blue. When he finds out she is the Naked Baker he cant hide his feelings.
Lizzie then tells her best friend Skye and then her family. Her father stops talking to her. When all seems lost Blue comes back, he cant live without Lizzie. Blue is my new hero. Look forward to seeing more of him and Lizzie in upcoming books. Great narration.

Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that's simmered between them since the day they met.
