But when local residents catch them sharing a tipsy kiss, the rumor mill goes wild. It's fun to pretend to be dating for a while.

|Katie Dixon has seen her son off to college and now she has decided to look for her notebook that she started years ago of things she wanted to do he left home. A single mom her husband died a few years after they were married and she had Sean. She has been raising her son alone except with the help of her neighbor and friend Carter. Carter is the middle son of three brothers and the second book in this series. The two of them have spent a lot of time together over the years but nothing romantically. That is until she finds out that he needs a date for an important business meeting. This also gives her an opportunity to mark something off her list. The dinner goes well until they decide to walk in the garden afterward, and then a passionate kiss between them is taken and posted on the towns Facebook page. Now they continue to date for real or not is what needs to be found out. Between the two of them, it is Carter’s character that drives me crazy at the beginning of the book and to the halfway point. Katie, I got or understood some of her reasons. I will also say you get some update on the people from the first book which was good. The last half of the book is much better and of course, the ending is good as well. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com|
