Say When (A Cedarville Novel Book #9) by Bree Kraemer – Review by Angela Hayes

Say When (A Cedarville Novel Book 9)Say When by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Say When Is the ninth book in the Cedarville novel series by Bree Kraemer. Even though it is the ninth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone without feeling like you are missing vital information or leaving you confused. I love the fact that each book in the Cedarville ‘family’ focuses on a particular couple- but there are recurring characters, who we have met previously, who make appearances, which really gives this book a charming quality. I really enjoy Ms. Kraemer’s writing- she always weaves a wonderful story that entices me in and keeps hold of me right through to the end. This series just seems to get better with each new instalment, not losing momentum or appeal. The characters are so well crafted that they bring the whole story to life. This is definitely one of my favourites of the series, and I really wanted to hang out with them and eat cupcakes 😊.
Dani, who we have met previously, as she bakes the desserts for Wes’s restaurant “Dockside” (After All These Years- Book #7) is so quiet, introverted and chronically shy that it has held her back from truly living and following her dreams. This fear has almost taken over her life, and Dani will have to learn to face her fears and overcome them in order to have a ‘real’ life. She’s passionate about baking and always has been- she’s an extremely talented baker who creates incredibly delicious morsels. The very same morsels that a certain chef at “Dockside” can’t seem to get enough of, devouring the tasty sweets daily. What happens when he finally meets the shy baker? Find out in this super sweet story….

Thank you, Ms. Kraemer!

Say When (A Cedarville Novel Book 9)Say When by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bree Kraemer’s Say When is the ninth book in the Cedarville series. This contemporary romance continues the amazing series the author has created. Say When is Dani and Patrick’s story, certainly one of my favorites that I have read. The sweet factory of this story cannot be denied, especially when there is a bakery involved. Change is a theme in this story which features old and new characters. How these characters interact was fun to read, even how they struggle to find their footings and grow at times. Even though there are limited pages in this story, it was a pleasurable read and a great addition to the series.

Won’t Let You Down (Cedarville Novel Series Book #8) by Bree Kraemer – Review by Angela Hayes

Won't Let You Down (A Cedarville Novel Book 8)Won’t Let You Down by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Won’t Let You Down is the eighth book in the Cedarville Novel Series by Bree Kraemer. This series seems to get better with each new instalment, and that’s saying something, especially since I was convinced that I wouldn’t like this book, because I didn’t think I liked Joy. Well, I was wrong- I should never have doubted Ms. Kraemer! This story is even better than I could have imagined. There was so much more to the character/s than I thought I knew. This is my favourite of the series so far- a story full of loss, heartache, new beginnings, changes, second chances, love, romance, emotion…. and spice!
Even though it is the eighth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone without feeling like you are missing vital information or getting confused. The story has an identity, energy, feel and flavour all its own- but still fits well with the rest of the books in the series. I love the fact that each book in the Cedarville family focuses on a particular couple- but there are recurring characters, who may have their own book, and who we have met previously, who make appearances though each book, allowing us to catch up with them, as well as enjoying the main ‘event’.
I thought I ‘knew’ Joy, and she hadn’t impressed me at all…. But as I followed along I soon realised that I didn’t really know her as well as I thought I did. I got a new perspective and ended up loving her, especially since she and Flynn were so perfect together! Flynn is just such a good guy, sexy, sweet, patient, and very understanding. He knew what he wanted and wasn’t going to settle for anything else, determined to prove that he wouldn’t let her down!
Can’t wait for more of Cedarville!

Thank you, Ms. Kraemer!

Won’t Let You Down (A Cedarville Novel #8) by Bree Kraemer – Review by Liz Vrchota

Won't Let You Down (A Cedarville Novel Book 8)Won’t Let You Down by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Won’t Let You Down is the 8th book in the Cedarville series from Bree Kraemer. It is a sweet contemporary romance that promises to make you fall in love with Cedarville and the people that live there. Each book is focused on a different couple so they can be read as standalone novels, or out of order. I would recommend that you read them all and in order though for a better enjoyment of the books. You really feel like you are visiting Cedarville each time you dive into a new couple’s story, and that is built by reading the entire series. Besides that, each book is an amazing read.

This book is centered on the story of Joy and Flynn. I really enjoyed these two. They are relevant and relatable for most of us that are trudging through life with a secret passion for a person we don’t feel we deserve or should be. Joy has serious trust issues. She finds things are easier when she keeps thing strictly physical and emotionless, most often resorting to one-night-stands and the ease of the one-time encounter. However, Flynn changes things for her when she starts to feel for him on a deeper level than just physically. Flynn is honestly the perfect guy to bring her out of her shell. He is patient and kind, aware of her worries and hesitations. He takes his time and gets to know the real her. Will it be enough though? Can he get her to see that they could have something great together if they just give it a chance? He knows that he ‘won’t let her down’ but can she ever believe it?

The gambit of emotions are felt while reading these two’s story. I found myself on the brink of tears, cheering for them when they were slightly starting to get somewhere, being angry when things were rocky, and blushing in heat at some of the hot steamy scenes that are well written. Overall, this was another great five star installment in the Cedarville series. I can’t wait to see what will come next in this idyllic little town I want so badly to visit.

A Chance Worth Taking (Cedarville #5) by Bree Kraemer – Review by Jana Teppih

A Chance Worth Taking (Cedarville #5)A Chance Worth Taking by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Chance Worth Taking by Bree Kreamer is the fifth book in her Cederville series and it is another hit! I have read the previous book and it was such a pleasure to meet some new people in this small town of Cederville and also meet up with the old friends!
This romantic story is the story of Avery Davies and Dax Lange and both of them have a pretty heavy baggage that they are carrying around. Avery is a newcomer in the area and she is ready to put down the roots! Dax has always lived in Cedarville and after a wild youth he found his way and is seemingly on top of the world except that when he meets Avery, his world goes topsy turvy!
It is a fast paced book and you will run a gamut of emotions while reading it! Grab a glass of wine and join the ladies of Cedarville while enjoying the pleasures of small town living! I love the sense of hope and certainty of happy ending that the writer is a master of creating! I know that I will be looking forward to the next story taking

Better Together (Cedarville #4) by Bree Kraemer – Review by Angela Shirley

Better Together (Cedarville #4)Better Together by Bree Kraemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Better Together is the fourth book in the Cederville Series and revolves around Ryan and Addison, will Ryan turning his world upside down to live in Cedarville be a mistake or will he find the kick start to his life he has been looking for.

Ryan had his life turned upside down finding out his brother and his wife had had a car accident but the shocking thing is that they had a six year old son which now was an orphan and if Ryan did not rock up to the plate he would spend time in the foster care system.

So Ryan accepts to become the guardian but with his job in Baltimore he needs help adjusting to this new lifestyle, so Ryan decides to look up his brother’s ex-girlfriend but is not sure how this will go down as his brother cheater on her with her mother. As he expected she had no hard feelings towards the instant baby boy in the mix and agreed to help Ryan raise Reed.

There’s one thing Ryan has fell in love with Reed and Cedarville and ends up packing his job in, moving to the sleepy town but was this all become of Reed or is there a stunning brunette mixed in with this decision.

Addison is a smart and pretty, she has always been looked at for her beauty rather than her brains, her friends were always scared that their husbands would have an affair with her, until the moment Ryan Ball entered Cedarville her world spinned on it axis, there was an instant attraction which she could not explain. So once Ryan moved to the sleepy town they decide to act on the attraction the only thing is Ryan has never been good at dating.

I really loved these two characters and the interaction between them and was willing them to succeed in the relationship. I also was invested within the second characters also and enjoyed that they loved and cherished each relationship with in the family they created. This book can be read as a stand-alone but the other books in the series are just as good so I would recommend you read them also.
