My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great series! Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set is by K.L. Montgomery and features the first three books in the series. You don’t want to miss out! The entire series features women who aren’t so confident with themselves and their bodies. But by the end most of them find that confidence and find love with really hot men! First book is Fat Girl. This book is about a woman who finds herself divorced after years of marriage as well as a single mother. This one isn’t much of a romantic book as it is one where the main characters finds herself and really falls in love with herself. This was a great “awakening” book for someone who just isn’t happy with their life at the moment. The second book is The Flip. This book is about a woman who is a true rocket scientist! She finds herself flipping a house with her childhood arch enemy. While doing so she finds who she really is and what she really wants to do with her life. The best part is she ends up falling in love with said arch enemy. This is a really cute and quirky story that I fell in love with! The third book in this set is Plot Twist. The woman in this book is a shy high school teacher. However, when she sings she forgets how shy she really is and has a powerhouse voice. The male lead in this book is an actor on the side and of course is very handsome. Both decided to try out for a community play at the same center that the male lead from book 2 opened. This was so much fun to read! I absolutely adore this series and have read all the books! I cannot wait to read what Ms. Montgomery has up her sleeve next!

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set by K.L. Montgomery

Stars:5

This boxed set contains the first three books in the Romance in Rehoboth series, which are Fat Girl, The Flip, and Plot Twist. Each book is a standalone, but we do get to see our favorite couples throughout the series. The books are written from both the leading male and female point of view. I absolutely loved these stories/series. These books contain romance, humor, and very relatable characters. The characters, both male and female, struggle in some fashion. They are not perfect, but they are trying. I think that is one of the many reasons why I truly enjoyed these stories. Another reason is K.L. Montgomery’s humor, which shines through in the stories. I particularly loved everything that happened in The Flip!

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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

K.L. Montgomery’s Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 1-3) includes Fat Girl, The Flip and Plot Twist. I’ve read of the books within this set and each was thoroughly enjoyable – highly recommend. Here’s a summary of my thoughts of each of these books in this boxed set.

Fat Girl
Fat Girl, by K.L. Montgomery, is Claire Sterling’s story. She is almost 40, divorcing her husband, moving back home, and veering back into the dating scene via online. However, she fears that she will always be a fat girl.

Most of us can relate to this story in some shape or form. We have all looked in the mirror at one point and seen ourselves as others do, some piece of disappointment in ourselves. A failed marriage with a cheating ex-husband and now being a single mom venturing back into dating trying for a new relationship. Insecurities abound and trying to find a way to respect herself and love herself inside and out.

K.L. Montgomery touches on real life issues. It is in your face, right there in front of you, in black and white on the pages. Claire’s character definitely has many roadblocks in her life that she has to knock down, move around or avoid. She’s courageous to move into dating at a later age and the unknowns of whether a person is truthful or hiding something. There were many times in the midst of reading this story that I wanted to sit right next to Claire and ask her what would you tell me… and then, don’t you think you should do the same for yourself?

Fat Girl offers several laughable moments. If you aren’t quite sure on your next book to read, I would recommend this book as everyone should be able to relate to some piece or part of this story.

The Flip
The Flip, by K.L. Montgomery, is the second book in the Romance in Rehoboth series. This romantic comedy features Andrew and Sonnet with their relationship shifts from that of high school dynamics of dislike to something that changes in a way neither of them anticipated.

The characters are well developed and I felt that their chemistry flowed smoothly and was not forced. I honestly enjoyed their antics in the story. This author does a good job in their writing for this series/story. I did previously read Fat Girl, the first book of the series. The Flip was as good as the previous book and I loved the characters of Andrew and Sonnet. K.L. Montgomery is great at romantic comedies and kept me on my toes and laughing through this novel. The story was addictive and a true page turner.

Plot Twist
K.L. Montgomery’s Plot Twist is the third novel in the Romance in Rehoboth series. The author overlaps several characters that appeared previously in the series in subsequent books as supporting cast members. I enjoyed how these characters overlapped between books. Within Plot Twist, the main cast includes Meric and Lindy; this romantic comedy has all the major elements, to have you laughing to wiping stray tears, to wondering what in the heck that last conversation was?! The build up in this story was well paced and created allure and intrigue into possibly where the author was planning to take these main characters and when they would peak and/or plummet. The story was fun, inspirational, and everything in between.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Romance in Rehoboth is a three-book box set containing the first three books in this terrific series. The series is comprised of full-length, standalone stories, and each book centres on its own particular character/couple. The stories differ storyline, feel and tone- but they all are set against the backdrop of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
The books range from learning self-acceptance/loving yourself, believing in yourself/following your dreams, and finding your soulmate- all played out by interesting, quirky, and endearing characters who learn and grow as their story plays out. There is some drama, humour, romance, angst, body-positive messages, fun, and originality.

Fat Girl (Romance in Rehoboth Series Book #1)
We follow as Claire Sterling goes on a journey of self discovery and acceptance. Finding herself in looking 40 in the face, having weight issues, and being newly divorced. A lovely story that stayed with me long after I had finished.

The Flip (Romance in Rehoboth Series Book #2)
The is a fantastic enemies to lovers story. We meet Andrew and Sonnet who have a history and who find themselves the joint beneficiaries of a Will- inheriting a house they decide to Flip. What happens when renovation turns to romance? A great read!

Plot Twist (Romance in Rehoboth Series Book #3)
Lindy and Meric take us along for the ride as they follow their dreams in this wonderful backstage romance. An original, and worthy addition to the series. One of my favourites!

Ms. Montgomery really is a gifted storyteller, easily able to pull readers into her story and keeping them connected and hooked the whole way through. I love how her stories depicts characters who are realistic, relatable, and entirely believable.
This box set really is worth your time and money, not only is it a great buy, you get three wonderful, full length stories to dive into and enjoy.

Thank you, Ms. Montgomery!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 1-3) By K.L. Montgomery. I loved these books, each one a little more. They are all based on strong, independent women who struggle with self image and good looking, strong men. They are set in the quaint beach town of Rehoboth where tons of people head for vacations in Delaware. My favorite was Plot Twist the 3rd book in the series. Its about a guy named Meric Chandler a newly divorced accountant and Lindy Larson a plus size teacher who can sing beautifully. Jack & Claire from the first book Fat Girl, write a play for a summer showcase and Lindy & Meric try out for parts. They both get the parts and end up really liking each other but Lindy can’t imagine anyone as good looking as Meric having any interest in her. The story is funny and fast paced. Lindy and Meric end up becoming very good friends and they are both wanting more but are too afraid to act on it. These books are full of positive self image messages for ladies and I loved that about them. Read 1 or 2 or read all 3 you won’t regret it!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ROMANCE IN REHOBOTH is a boxed set that contains:
Fat Girl
The Flip
Plot Twist

Each book is a stand alone book with crossover characters. Each book holds up on it’s on with complex characters, strong female leads, men who aren’t afraid of strong women and a whole cast of characters along the way. Each has romance, humor, a bit of angst, self-discovery and growth.

In Fat Girl, we meet a woman who is on the precipice of so many life changes. We get to see her find out who her authentic self is.

The Flip is a cute story about 2 unlikely people involved in a project that forces them to be together for a while and discover who they are.

Plot Twist is the story of realizing that you can’t always stay in the background when you are meant to be out front.

Each of these stories made me smile and feel good about the characters (did I like each and every decision, of course not). I would absolutely recommend these books and this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed set by K.L. Montgomery a five-star filled read. This is the first three books in the Romance in Rehoboth series and all together they make each book stronger than the last. I don’t know why but they do, each story is of a different strong, individual woman getting what she needs and deserves, each book is good but my personal favourite was the Flip, Sonnett had something about her in a total nerdy chic amazingness and Andrew had that special something that would turn your head and make you chase crocodiles in the rain.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fat Girl was an interesting book. It was a good story about a woman starting over and falling in love again, with her self and a man. I understand that the book was about self-image and fat shaming, but it was kind of hard to read because of the consent and never-ending criticizing of her body. I feel like there should have been more story and depth in the story. It all worked out in the end but still something to think about. I enjoyed the characters immensely.

The Flip was a great, fun read. It was the classic love story of rivals falling in love. The characters of Sonnet and Andrew were awesome people and the story about them was downright hilarious. I truly enjoyed the story and thought it was a good read. The only thing I would add is that I didn’t feel like Sonnet had to give up her life in order to be with him. But otherwise, it was good!

Plot Twist
This has been the best book in the series so far. It was funny, sweet, and romantic. I loved the couple of Meric and Lindy. I was rooting for them from the very beginning and loved how Meric was so supportive of Lindy when she doubts her self. It was so sweet and loving. This author has made a great series, and I cannot wait for the next one.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Romance in Rehoboth Boxed set by KL Montgomery includes the first three books in the series. What a great way to get several lighthearted stories together. These can be read out of order but why would you when you have them all together.
Fat Girl
Fat Girl by K.L. Montgomery is the first book in the Romance in Rehoboth series. These are standalone stories but with characters that carry over from one story to the next. Claire is going through a reinvention of herself after her divorce. She is fat and had a lifelong challenge with her weight. She is a blogger/journalist who decides to join the online dating world. Her character is relatable and fun. I could relate to her because the character is the same age as myself and so were her references from her past. I liked the story and read this quickly. If you are needing a fun read this is for you.
The Flip
The Flip by K.L. Montgomery is the second book in the Romance in Rehoboth series. This can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. The story is about Andrew and Sonnet who were academic rivals in high school. When both jointly inherit a house ten years after high school can they put their differences aside? Andrew is the underachiever who enjoys his life. Sonnet is the overachiever who wants to continue her education and lead girls into the sciences. The two decide to flip the inherited house. There were elements that reminded me of “The Money Pit”. This was a fun read that kept me from putting it down. I wanted to see where the story went. The characters were relatable and realistic. I hadn’t read the first book in the series but am now going back to catch that one before continuing to the next book. I hope that the stories are as fun as this one.
Plot Twist
Plot Twist by KL Montgomery is the third book in the Romance in Rehoboth series. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading in order because some of the secondary characters were introduced in earlier books. Lindy wants to hide from the limelight but is convinced by friends to become involved in a local theatre production. Meric is a newly divorced accountant by day but a handsome actor after work. Can Lindy overcome her insecurities to allow Meric to be more than a friend? I have enjoyed the other books in the series and this one did not disappoint. The characters have real issues and to face not only themselves but also those around them. KL Montgomery gives another strong female character and reminds us that there are nice guys out there.
