Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 1-3)Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

K.L. Montgomery’s Romance in Rehoboth series is a collection of feel-good romances set in Chesapeake Bay, with the first three books brought together in this set. The stories all work as stand-alone books, with each focusing on a different couple.
Montgomery ties the stories together by having characters popping up in each other’s books. This is really lovely as it makes everyone a bit more familiar and three-dimensional. It also gives readers a chance to see the romances progressing after the “happily ever after”.
Fat Girl is a great introduction to the series, although I had actually already read some of the later books. Claire is a loveable, relatable character who you can’t help but root for. As a recently single mum approaching her forties, getting back on the dating scene is not without it’s difficulties, which are compounded by her anxieties about her weight. The story is mostly light and funny, but we see Claire struggling and overcoming her insecurities as well.
The Flip tells a wonderful story of two people brought together by an unlikely event, getting to know each other as they work through the herculean task of fixing up an old house. Enemies to lovers isn’t usually my favourite trope, but it’s well done here with both Sonnet and Drew being interesting characters in their own rights.
Plot Twist is my favourite of the three. Musical theatre! What’s not to love? It’s fun, uplifting and relatable to anyone who’s ever been involved in theatre.
They’re great books, and fun to read together. There’s already a fourth book which is also great! For me, this collection gets five stars and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants feel-good romance between loveable, relatable characters.
