Author: Melody Grace

Artist Mackenzie Lane is almost thirty and still single, which, according to her neighbors, pretty much makes her the Spinster of Sweetbriar Cove. She’s sworn off terrible fix-ups, and is looking forward to her solo future of woolly mumus and cats. (Lots of cats). But a chance Halloween rendezvous awakens her reckless spirit, and makes her wonder if love might be in the cards, after all…

Jake Sullivan is back in town for the first time in years, recovering from a career-ending sports injury. He’s dazzled by the mysterious woman he meets by chance - and even more intrigued when he discovers it’s his high-school friend Mackenzie. 

Ten years ago, Jake was the first (and only) guy to put a dent in Mackenzie’s invincible heart. She’s determined not to make the same mistake again, but when the pair are forced to team up to plan the annual Starbright Festival, old sparks fly - and new passion runs riot. 

Soon, Mackenzie and Jake are risking it all. But will their connection last longer than the first snowfall? And can these old friends start a new chapter for love?  Find out in the sizzling, romantic new novel from Melody Grace!

Favorite Quotes:

I go on first dates… And maybe if I didn’t dress like I’m upholstery, I would go on seconds dates, too.

Dad got me one of those step-counters for Christmas a couple of years ago. He thought we could do it together, you know. Bonding… My count was so low, he called me up after the first week to check I turned the thing on.

Try googling sometime. In fact, how are you not looking up your dates? It’s literally the first thing I do. To check they don’t have a criminal record, or post on Nickelback fan sites… You know, due dating diligence.

My email is nothing but weight loss spam and takeout coupons right now. Because I’m such a loyal customer. I’ve started inventing company when the delivery guys arrive. You know, yelling ‘food’s here’ into my empty apartment so they don’t think all three boxes of pad thai are mine.

“Everyone knows he dumped me,” she said, checking around to see if the gossips were still out in force. “I may as well have ‘spinster’ written on my forehead.”

My Review:

Anyone who has ever lived in a small town is painfully aware that the populous thrives on gossip and meddling, and Melody Grace has perfectly cast Sweetbriar Cove with these attributes. Although this thriving small town appears to be far more fun-loving than most. I always enjoy Ms. Grace’s clever humor, amusing banter, sweet camaraderie between friends, sexy and sweet romances, and endearingly flawed characters. Mackenzie had a decade-long secret crush on her friend Jake since first meeting him in high school. After Jake moved away she had endured hair-raising fix-ups but no one had yet made her heart soar, other than in horror. Jake had enjoyed a successful football career and the social life of a celebrity, but he was currently struggling and while suffering through a painful rehab of his knee he was also grappling with an identity crisis - if he didn’t fully recover and he wasn’t an all-star football player, who was he? His moods and rationalizations flipped like a teenaged girl and I wanted to embed my foot somewhere on or in his anatomy. Thankfully, he pulled his head from that same area of anatomy just in time to provide that all-important HEA, but he really had me worried…
