Cider Brook: A Swift River Valley Novel by Carla Neggers - Book Blog Tour Stop and Review

About The Book:

Unlikely partners bound by circumstance …or by fate?

Being rescued by a good-looking, bad-boy firefighter isn't how Samantha Bennett expected to start her stay in Knights Bridge, Massachusetts. Now she has everyone's attention—especially that of Justin Sloan, her rescuer, who wants to know why she was camped out in an abandoned old New England cider mill.

Samantha is a treasure hunter who has returned to Knights Bridge to solve a 300-year-old mystery and salvage her good name. Justin remembers her well. He's the one who alerted her late mentor to her iffy past and got her fired. But just because he doesn't trust her doesn't mean he can resist her. Samantha is daring, determined, seized by wanderlust—everything that strong, stoic Justin never knew he wanted. Until now….

My Thoughts:

"Cider Brook" is the third book in Carla Neggers' "Swift River Valley" series, and highlights the story of Justin Sloan and Samantha Bennett. 

Having not read the first books in this series, I was a little lost at first. There is a huge cast of characters involved with this storyline and a lot of backstory to catch up with. But I soon found that I was fascinated by interaction between Justin and Samantha and could leave the rest of the folks in the background.  This is a lively, feisty and fast-paced story that has a little mystery, a little intrigue and a whole lot of romance.

I enjoy Carla Neggers' writing style - it's why she is such a well-selling author.  Fans of contemporary romances will find this series to be very enjoyable.  I do recommend checking out the first two books first though.

I met her at a book signing a few years ago and she was a delight. Spent over an hours talking to the two us that were there. I do like her books but haven't read this series.
