With the whole town at stake, will Carl and Owen save the mill and find their way to true love?
Rescue Me is the heartwarming first novel in the Frazier Falls romance series. If you like strong women, honorable men, and small-town love, then you’ll adore Kelly Collins’ charming tale.
“God, you’re no fun,” Eli complained. “You’re like Dad in better clothes.”
“… my manners run too deeply for me to abandon them.” I always had this fear that my mother had some connection to the gods, and showing a lack of respect would earn me a heavenly lightning bolt straight to my ass.
John told me I’d have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince, but you’re the wartiest toad I’ve ever met.
I was sounding like our father, who used to tell us to think with our brains, not sit on them, which was a nice way of telling us to pull our heads out of our asses.
She pretended to look pained. “Look, there goes my self-esteem. Never again will I put myself out there. I’ll die a spinster.”
There was a time I thought giving my heart to a woman was suicide, but looking at her made me realize that death by Carla might be worth it.
A long time ago my mother gave me the best bit of wisdom a man in love could receive when she told me, you don’t marry someone you can live with. You marry the person you can’t live without.
I adore Kelly Collin’s sweet and sexy small-town romances. Rescue Me starts a new series with a tie-in to her beloved Aspen Cove series, which I will never get enough of and hope she continues into perpetuity. The engaging storylines were relevant, easy to follow, laced with humor, and cast with distinctive yet immediately likable and assessable primary and secondary characters. I’m rubbing my hands together in anticipation of a return visit.
