What a wonderful book 10 stars for me.

This is by far the funniest Aspen Cove book for me.  The one-liners had me LOL so much.

"Go home Violet.  You don't ride a bull before you've ridden a horse."

To see why a laugh out loud you will have to read this wonderful book to get the true meaning of that sentence.

How Kelly Collins keeps giving us all these great and loving characters in this one little town is beyond me her imagination and story ability keeps me reading and wanting more.

He is a cowboy in limbo doing the job of a cattle hand but wanting so much more.

She has the ability to do her job in a man's world but has been thrown to the curve.

Trinity Mosier is known for trouble by her brother but its trouble that has always found her no the other way around.  So when she needs help she turn...

I spent my Sunday at home in Aspen Cove catching up with the wonderful characters I have come to feel I know very well that we are now up to book 11.  This book we get to read and learn more about Beekeeper Abby Garrett who we have met before in other books in this series.  She had had her eye on one of our lovely sexy man of Aspen Cove before but it was just not her time to find the ONE.  I don't matter what book of Kelly Collins I pike up to read I always feel at home with her characters and stories. Her books are one of my happy places where I can find peace and happiness in this crazy fast-paced world we live in.

Thank you.

I love the feeling I get after reading Kelly Collins, it’s that warm happy glow of being in love and completely happy with life. It’s also how she makes her characters feel as well, as each book crawls into your heart. This is another I can’t put down read that will have you incrossed in the wonderful characters of Pinetop, Colorado in this Christmas story of finding love in your hometown. If you love to read small-town romance I can not recommend anyone better to sink you reading eyes into but any of Kelly Collins great books. This is my honest and voluntary review of the great book.

I can not believe this is book 10 of this series, as each book has entertained me and having me waiting for the next one. This book is about two very extremely different people that find their way together. It is amazing to see how Aspen Cove is growing into a wonderful town to live in.

Tilden Cool has been in Aspen cove for about two years and would have never guessed that he would still be here, as he is a city boy.  A city boy that is very happy to be living in the country with no running water in his log cabin. He may have been in town for two years but the locals do not know much about this lumberjack looking man that keeps to himself.

Goldie Sutherland is on her way to Aspen Cove to get married when everything she planned when crashing down around her.  This country town is very differ...

Kelly Collins, you keep breaking my heart with every amazing book you write but this one stabbed me deeply. But I always had faith that you would put it back together but the journey was a bumpy one for a while. Aspen Cove is a place I would just love to visit and to meet all the wonderful characters that live there if only our book world would be real. It may not be real but the author makes you feel like it is with her characters and stories. If you have not read any of the books in this series I would recommend them all to you as you will not be disappointed in them.

Eden Webster was a kind-hearted person that would never say no to anyone and especially her older sister. Eden soon finds herself homeless and in need of help, when she stops for gas in a small town called Aspen Cove. At th...

My love for this series just keeps growing with every book I read.  The author keeps her characters, her town and her series captivating and totally enjoyable with each and every book she writes.  This is a beautiful love story about a girl needing to find herself and her place in this world and a very sexy fireman wanting to keep his foot firmly in the town he has grown to love and protect.  I also really enjoyed the interaction with the other characters in two during this read and with the anticipation of the next book and characters.

I am not going to write a quick overview but just going to list some of my favourite quotes.  As this is a must read series if you love small town romances.  I received an arc copy of this book to which this is my honest and voluntary review....

Back to Aspen Cove to a couple, I have just been so eager to read about Poppy and Mark. I got that warm happy feeling on the very first page where I was LOL. What do you do when you have loved someone all your life but you can’t have them?  And the reason has nothing to do with you but your family.  Poppy Dawson has been pretending that her hating Mark was easier than knowing she loved him.  Could Poppy take control of her own life and heart or keep letting her father influence her to the life he wanted for her?

“Everything seemed like a pie-in-the-sky dream, but a girl could dream.”

Mark Bancroft couldn’t remember a time he didn’t love her but he would never be the man her father wanted him to her for his daughter.  Aspen cove was becoming a regular lover’s paradise as all of Mark...

This is book three of this great series and with each book it keeps getting more and more intriguing.  This book is about the third and youngest Wilde brother who is the one that is so desperate to stay out of the mob Mafia world in which his late father was the king of. It is sad to see this series come to an end but as there is only three brother I am guessing it was inevitable to read the last one.  This one was just as action packed as the last two and with a forbidden childhood love we find the conclusion of all the Wilde brother come together in this wonderful and entertaining read.

The relationship between Kirsten O’Leary and Raphael Wilde has grown since they were children, but they were never allowed to take this friendship any further since they were from two different Mafia...

I am stepping back into Aspen Cove after reading book 6 last week to book 5 after missing this book in my kindle.  I am loving this series so much I can’t believe I missed one along the way, and what a book to miss. Both the hero and the heroine were strong and endearing characters that had you fighting for them to find their HEA together.  If you have followed any of my review you could not I just love small town romance and Kelly Collins always gives us her all in her stories, with so much more than just a romance but with depth and strong topics.  I received a copy of this book and have voluntarily written an honest review. 

Marina Caswell is our heroine, she is “a victor not a victim” and this she will show us during this book as she fights for not just herself...
