Book Review - My Kind of You (A Trillium Bay Novel Book 1) by Tracy Brogan

ABOUT THE BOOK

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Brogan is back with a sweet, hilarious series about family, forgiveness, and what it means to go back home.
Emily Callaghan never expected to spend another summer on Wenniway Island. Yet here she is, back in her quaint northern Michigan hometown of Trillium Bay, divorced, flat broke, and dragging along her precocious twelve-year-old. It’s a simple arrangement: Emily, a house flipper, will renovate one of her grandmother’s rental properties in exchange for a much-needed loan. Once a wild child, the reformed Emily also hopes to remodel her reputation and show her family she’s all grown up.
But coming home is never simple. Emily’s dad is more distant than ever. Her younger sister is dating a much older man, and Emily’s worried it’s a mistake. The cottage remodel grows increasingly daunting. And then there’s handsome out-of-towner Ryan Taggert…
Ryan has his own family drama. A smart, ambitious land developer, he’s come to Wenniway to rescue his father from the grips of a new girlfriend and protect their family business. But he’s quickly distracted by gorgeous, witty Emily Callaghan.
There’s no denying the attraction between Emily and Ryan. But will their conflicting interests destroy any chance at love? Or will Emily finally get the chance to rebuild her life—and repair her heart?

REVIEW

I loved the fit of Emily and Ryan as a couple.  They are both real and easy to relate with.  For me the real star of the book is her sassy twelve-year-old daughter Chloe, who was at times the best source of reason in the chaotic adult world Emily is living in.  I would recommend this to anyone who loves a heartwarming story full of cleaver wit and a few quirky characters.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
