Summary

Liz Kowalski is heading home to Whitford, Maine - this time for good. Eager for her family, a fresh start and some fun, she doesn't count on being rescued by the chief of police her very first night back in town. Drew is everything she's not looking for...so why is she still so attracted to him?

After a brief, forbidden rendezvous at her brother's wedding, Drew Miller expects Liz to return to New Mexico and stay there. He's searching for someone to settle down with, not a casual fling with his best friend's sister. But when they're stuck together on the annual Kowalski camping trip, things start going a little sideways. Keeping their hands off each other proves just as impossible as keeping their secret from becoming public knowledge.

Amid family, mud and melted marshmallow, Liz and Drew try to fight what's growing between them. But a little time alone, a lot of chemistry and too many opinions might be just what it takes to bring together two people so determined not to fall in love.

Wonderful way to continue the series!

I’m really enjoying this series. They can individually be stand alone. However, if one plans on enjoying the entire series, it may be enjoyed more to read others before this. Without spoilers, there is a family reunion and those scenes may be more enjoyable knowing some history/back stories.

Again??

The series started out fun and sweet. Now they have become repetitive and maybe a little annoying. And Paige needs to stop being so annoying. She had a crappy upbringing, but enough already. Done with this series even if free as part of the escape package.

Love A Little Sideways

Loved the characters and the story. The Kowolskys are my favorite. Liz & Drew were crazy in love but didn't know it. What fun.

Good series

3/5 rating: pretty good. I liked the story and cast of characters. The end was too abrupt. Some sexy scenes. Narration was okay.

Cute story

Cute story. The narrator is constantly saying the wrong names in these books. Did anyone else notice?

Terrific story that kept my interest to the end. Cried and laughed in places that tore me up and then delighted me.

Boring

I loved some of this series but this one was basically nothing but a story about the sister in her thirties who returns to her hometown interested in a local police officer who is the best friend of her brother. The entire book is mainly about the brother talking to his friend about not letting the sister down. She is a grown woman for goodness sake just ridiculous. I think it is scraping the barrel to make another book. Waste of money I have tried so many times to finish it but just can't.

Fell Asleep Sideways

This was such a boring and predictable listen. The narrator's voice did not help either - I caught myself dozing off on more than one occasion - truly disappointed.

What bothered me the most was how predictable the listen was. I know a lot of romance novels are predictable but maybe this just isn't a good book for audio.

Wish I were a Kowalksi

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The Kowalksi clan is fun hearted, wild and they clearly care about their loved ones. The story line is great and well developed. I found myself wishing I were a Kowalksi and could hop on a sled or 4-wheeler. I hope this isn't the end of the Kowalksi saga.
