The Blurb: Single dad Hogan Guthrie is getting his life back on track, and working as the “barbecue master” at a local diner is just a temporary detour. He and restaurant owner Violet Shaw constantly butt heads…until one night they end up mingling other parts instead. Hogan thought he had the recipe for happiness all figured out. But loyal, carefree Violet is daring him to trust his impulses…and see just how sweet small-town living—and loving—can be. Nathan Hawley traded his SWAT team credentials for a sheriff’s badge, but a gorgeous new neighbor is shaking up his orderly life. Nathan has a hunch there’s more to Brooklin Sweet than meets the eye—but given her caution about getting involved, he has his work cut out for him. Still, there’s something about the elusive beauty Nathan can’t walk away from—and helping her come to terms with her past might pave the way to the future they both secretly long for.
My thoughts: Okay, this book was aptly named. It was worth the wait. This book tells the story of Hogan and Violet. Violet is a great character and she has some really hot chemistry with Hogan. They worked together to make changes to the restaurant Violet runs and Hogan works at part-time as a BBQ master. Their banter is fun and some of the ideas (will not spoil them for you) are alot of fun! Hogan is a single dad and an accountant. He is a great dad to his teenage son and there are issues with his accounting boss that must be worked out.
This book also tells the story of Nathan and Brooklyn. Don’t think that their tale is just a side story. Ms. Foster did a wonderful job of fleshing out their story and romance. It is not merely a sub-plot. She truly gives us a story with two couples whose tales are well-defined. As always, Ms. Foster’s dialogue is believable and well-written and her characters entertaining.
