I was entertained by this realistically romantic hard to put down read. With well developed characters and charming scenery this is a book that is sure to please! Lilacs are my favorite and I loved the way the author incorporated them into her story. This is the first book I have read from the Dry Creek Series (and will not be the last) I found I was able to easily jump right into the storyline without any problems, although is part of a series, it is an excellent stand alone novel. Dialogue and plot flowed well without any dull parts. I would highly recommend this book to others. Thanks so much to the author for providing a complimentary copy to me for my review. Enjoyed it!
