Book Review - Bluestone & Vine by Donna Kauffman

ABOUT THE BOOK


Pippa MacMillan is a legend on the Irish folk music scene. But when her voice requires a time-out, she’s left wondering how—and where—to find happiness in the silence . . .
 
Seeking answers, Pippa leaves Ireland in favor of a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Turns out lovely Blue Hollow Falls is the perfect place to heal—and solitary Seth Brogan is the surprisingly perfect host. After all, Seth is beginning again too: turning his renovated stone barn and beautiful hillside into a vineyard is the start of a whole new life for the former Special Forces soldier. Only Mother Nature keeps thwarting both their plans, leaving Pippa snowbound with unsettling thoughts about how life can take unexpected turns . . .
 
To Pippa’s surprise, she might actually fall for small-town living. She might even fall for Seth, whose quiet strength is a balm for her world-weary soul. But when the music starts once more, will she follow her fortune back to Ireland, or surrender to the call of her heart?

REVIEW

I have been waiting almost a year for this book after reading the first chapter at the end of the first  Blue Hallow falls book and had already fallen in love with Seth.  Because I went into this book completely infatuated with him I was worried about who he would be paired with.  Fortunately, I quickly fell in love with Pippa as well and found the pair perfectly suited.  This is a mix of slow burn and hot and was a wonderful read that I didn't want to put down and left me wanting more stories about the residents of Blue Falls.  I recommend this book for anyone looking for a great story with amazing characters, not just romance readers.


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