Heartbeats and Roses (Hartwood Holiday Romance) by Jae Dawson
This was a super sweet story that falls at the perfect time of year. I previously read Moonlight and Belladonna which was set in Hartwood Hollow just as this one was. You can easily read each of these as standalones and each seems to follow the holiday theme.
I had a little trouble with this one as far as connecting with the two main characters. The actual storyline and the events during the story kinda took over for me. The family aspect as well was probably my favorite part of the whole story..Rose and Liam were awesome, and I loved each on their own, I just didn’t connect with the love story between the two, and I can’t explain why, I was more interested in Rose’s flower shop and her Valentines antics and her family, I couldn’t get enough of all of that. I love this small town and really will be looking forward to the next holiday in this series.
This is my 2nd book by this author, and I love many things about her writing and will absolutely be back for more.
