Ahh, May! When Spring finally arrives and so does a boatload of great romance!
You know the drill. Every month I tell you about the contemporary romance novels coming out that I’m most looking forward to. One person who leaves a comment will win a $10 gift certificate for herself AND for the contemporary romance author she mentions. Details are below, but first, here are the books that’re rocking my world this month.
Somebody to Love by Kristan Higgins
After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon’s Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns—a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father’s wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she’s not thrilled…even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.
Having to fend for herself for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist’s assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn’t the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn’t the only thing that needs a little TLC…
My two cents
This is a bit of a cheat, because Somebody to Love actually came out at the end of April, but I swear that when I downloaded my advance review copy at NetGalley, it said it was coming out on May 1st.
Somebody to Love is one of the best romance novels I’ve ever read. You can read my review – or, even better, go buy the book because it’s absolutely perfect.
