Every Little Kiss
This is a short and sweet romantic novel based in the magical town of Blue Moon Bay. I am fan of Susan Hatler and I enjoy her simple novels which embraces the true nature of romance as she manages to make you fall in love with her characters. Wendy's character is strong and independent, but at the same time she is emotional and I really enjoyed seeing both sides of her. Max is everyone's dream man he is gorgeous, caring and a good listener. The chemistry between Max and Wendy was sweet and romantic and it did not feel rushed or superficial. I really enjoyed the magical legend of Blue Moon Bay that brought them together as well as the part fate had to play in bringing Wendy and Max together. The secondary characters of Brian, Olivia and Megan were well conceived and brought an emotional depth to the book that was much needed. I liked Susan's style of writing, however I did wish that this book was written in a dual point of view style as I would have loved to see Max's thoughts throughout the book. Overall this was a short romantic read which leaves you filled with warmth and happiness.
Wendy Watts is returning to Blue Moon Bay nine years after she vowed never to come back because the town holds the painful memories of her parents abandoning her and her brother Brian. She is now a successful realtor who is forced to return after her grandmother passes away, so that she can sell their family inn in person.
