Hearts in Harmony and Something Blue

And Something BlueAnd Something Blue by Paige Timothy (Main Street Merchants #1)

Bridal consultant Laurie Fletcher spends her days helping others prepare for the most special day of their lives. Will true love ever come her way, or is she doomed to watch others get their happily ever after?

MY REVIEW (4 stars/5)

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe,” are tokens of good luck for the bride to carry on her wedding day.

Blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. In fact, in ancient Rome, brides wore blue to symbolize love, and fidelity. Laurie works as a consultant for the Bridal shop in hopes to own one someday. In her heart, she is wanting to marry her prince but he never seems to come as she has had one bad romance already. Logan is the brother of a customer from Denver, a good 1-2 hrs drive away. It is amazing how he all of a sudden seems to have a lot of reasons to come and see Laurie but she didn’t realize it at first. Being stubborn and scared, I believe.
The story focuses on this romance between Laurie and Logan, a lawyer who wines, dines and gives her flowers. He got me in a statement when Laurie asked, “Why do you believe me?” He replied, “Are you kidding me, no one who looks at me with those eyes could possibly be lying to me. I can see your soul in your eyes. Its the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen…”
Logan helps her over a rough situation at his job but it also backfires for him and he makes a stance. You will need to read the story for the details as I do not want to give all of the drama away here 🙂
The story is cute and set up in a small town on the main drag of a shopping mall. Each story will reflect on another shop and/or character involved. The author has given a map at the beginning of the book showing this street with 32 stores- a series to follow for easy light reading and quick to read stories.

For Love or MoneyFor Love And Money by Paige Timothy (Main Street Merchants #2)

Cynical Morgan has just about decided that no one could possibly fall in love with her – all the good guys want perfect girls, and she’s anything but perfect. But then along comes the guy who falls head-over-heels in love with her just as she is and helps her find the bright side of life again.

MY REVIEW (4 stars/5)

Another book by Paige Timothy for the Main Street Merchants. This story utilizes characters before as Laurie’s roommate, Morgan is the focus of this story and she works in the bank with Rory, a co-teller at the bank. Morgan has been having weekly lunches with Rory and still dating others; thinking Rory was a great friend. However, Rory gets called away back home and she realizes she does care for him. Now, she is worried he doesn’t care as being at home has old loves and traditions he is used to.

Morgan has a great support system with friends and roommates who help her decide what is important and how to go get it. The story unfolds between the two main characters and how the romance ends or begins. You will need to read the story to find out the details 🙂

The story was adorable with lovable characters compared to her earlier book as I felt it was more flushed out as a story and not rushed into the romance.

Hearts in HarmonyHearts in Harmony by Raine Gillespie (Love Notes #1)

Elahna Nezario gave up her musical dreams to help run the Queen of Hearts, her mother’s chocolate shop, after her sister’s sudden death. After an unfortunate run-in with Elahna’s childhood crush, owner of the Dolce Theater, not only do her dreams surge back to life, but so does her heart.

MY REVIEW (3.5 stars/ 5)

Hearts in Harmony begins with Elahna running to a theatre to listen to a singer for the 12th time. She loved his “chocolate” voice and she just had to hear it again- even though she has heard him since the third grade! Timothy is her best friend’s, Merry, brother. However, she hasn’t seen either of them in over 5 years as she went to school but had to quit to help her mother run her business after her sister’s death 1 year prior. The story reflects the ups/downs of this relationship as Elahna seems to have the worst of luck, no matter what she is trying to do BUT Timothy sees that she is honorable and sweet and sees through the problems she has.

The story also revolves around the theatre as Elahna had given up her dreams in music to come home and Timothy is running the local theatre but not for long. The theatre is NOT making money even though there is a full house. Timothy has taken her out to Dolce Lake where the area is a natural for acoustics and their romance really begins by singing to her and then with her.

The book continues into more drama and eventually Merry comes back to town after getting both of them to realize they love each other. The antics along the way at times doesn’t seem real as such a short time and so much drama but life can throw curve balls and if any book had it– this one is full of curves.

It is cute but a little pretentious for me as it didn’t seem real for all the drama that occurred. However, if you were not looking for anything deep, this book is for you as it is a clean book with no swearing and it is a fast read. It ended with Elahna having her dreams come true after all!

Waltzing on WheelsWaltzing on Wheels by Raine Gillespie (Love Notes #2)

Meredith Aaron lost all hope for love after a car accident put her in a wheelchair. Who would want her, broken as she is? After her brother tells her to save a dance for him at his wedding, she decides to somehow learn how to dance on the only legs she has left—her wheels.

MY REVIEW (5 stars/5)

Dreams can come true but only after characters open and be honest with each other and themselves with their desires, hopes in their careers and romance.  This book focused on Meredith’s (aka Merry) issues of being in a wheelchair following a car accident 1 year prior, in which her best friend’s sister was killed also. Her dream to dance at her brother’s, Timothy wedding to her best friend, Elahna with her self conceptual issue that she is ‘broken’.

Kyler, a dance instructor was familiar but new to Merry as she once loved to dance and thought she couldn’t now do. She challenged herself to learn because of the wedding to make her brother’s wish of family dance come true as they had no parents anymore. She asked Kyler for his help to learn but in a different mode, instead of legs by using her wheelchair– Kyler researched and found it was possible as Europe was known for this style.

Kyler also has his own secrets and he had to be open to Merry about his past. Together, they learn that the impossible can be done and the future was better with the two of them together. It helped that they both fell in love with each other quickly  as romance was like having a cherry on top of a sundae! I love feel good stories and this one was a fast read but made me smile and cherish the one I love as well.

I want to thank I AM A READER for allowing me to read these books for review. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing any of these books.
