The Brides of Blueberry Cove #2

Kensington: Zebra

There’s no place like seaside Blueberry Cove, Maine, at Christmas—and there’s nothing like a wedding, the warmth of the holidays, and an old crush, to create the perfect new start…
Interior designer Fiona McCrae has left fast-paced Manhattan to move back home to peaceful Blueberry Cove. But she’s barely arrived before she’s hooked into planning her big sister Hannah’s Christmas wedding—in less than seven weeks. The last thing she needs is for her first love, Ben Campbell, to return to neighboring Snowflake Bay…

As kids, Fiona was the bratty little sister Ben mercilessly teased—while pining after Hannah. But Fi never once thought of Ben like a brother. And that hasn’t changed. Except Fi is all grown up. Will Ben notice her now? More importantly, with her life in a jumble, should he? Or might the romance of the occasion, the spirit of the season, and the gifts of time ignite a long-held flame for many Christmases to come…

Something old might just become something new…


Fiona had a childhood crush on Ben.  Nothing she had to worry about returning home.  He'd started his business in another state.  Ben's father is retired to the South and has returned home to finish out this Christmas season and he's trying to decide what to do with the family Christmas Tree business.

From the second Ben walks back in Fi's life her childhood comes back to haunt her.  However, for Ben his attraction to Fi is new and wonderful.  He's determined to make up for his childhood taunts by romancing Fi and winning her heart.

Though the beginning of the story was a bit slow the spark between Fi and Ben had me addicted and wanting more of their story.  I love the creative dating in a busy time for both of them at the Holidays and "dating" through texts and phone calls are getting to know each other's adult selves.  I read the excerpt for Fi's sister Kerry's story and it left me checking out when the next story will be coming out.  If you enjoy a fun,  romantic story with a touch of  awesome snarkiness, I would recommend checking out Snowflake Bay.

USA Today bestselling author of the Cupcake Club Romance series, Donna Kauffman has seen her books reviewed in venues ranging from Kirkus Reviews and Library Journal to Entertainment Weekly and Cosmopolitan. She lives just outside of DC in the lovely Virginia countryside, where she is presently trying to makeover her newly empty nest into something that doesn’t have to accommodate piles of sports equipment falling out of her coat closet (okay, out of every closet...and under every bed....), size 13 cleats and sweaty uniforms cluttering her foyer (and stairwell, and laundry room, and...), and a kitchen that should have come with a traffic light. And a pantry monitor. (Anyone with a clever idea on how to repurpose lacrosse sticks into matching reading lamps, she’s all ears!) When she’s not stripping paint, varnishing an old auction house find, or trying to avoid bodily injury with her latest power tool purchase, she loves to hear from readers!
