Release Blitz with Review: Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry

Release Blitz with Review: Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry

Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry is now live!

From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry comes a small town, enemies-to-lovers contemporary romance.

Winslow Covington believes in life, liberty and the letter of the law. As Quincy, Montana’s new chief of police, she’s determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn’t earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor.

According to her pops, all she has to do is earn favor with the Edens. But winning over the town’s founding family might have been easier if not for her one-night stand with their oldest son. In her defense, it was her first night in town and she didn’t realize that the rugged and charming man who wooed her into bed was Quincy royalty.

Sleeping with Griffin Eden was a huge mistake, one she’s trying to forget. He’s insufferable, arrogant and keeps reminding everyone that she’s an outsider. Winslow does her best to avoid Griffin, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths.

As clues to the murderer lead to one of Quincy’s own, Griffin realizes Winslow is more than he gave her credit for. Beautiful and intelligent, she proves hard to resist. For him. And the killer.

My Review

“One morning spent in a rocking chair, and the world had shifted. Like going for a ride and veering off the main path to get a look from a different angle, and then discovering that the trail you’d been on was lacking in every way imaginable.”

“…Sank in with her. Deeper and deeper. She pulled. I followed.”

“I don’t think I could quit you if I tried.”

I loved, loved, loved this book!! What an amazing start to the Edens Series! Winslow and Griffin had me hooked from page one and left me hanging on each and every word…

Indigo Ridge is the first book in The Edens Series and it follows the story of Winslow and Griffin. When we first meet up with Winslow, she’s new in town and is determined to make a name for herself, win over her co-workers, and the town’s founding family, the Edens….The last thing Griffin has time for is the newest resident in Quincy. Every chance he gets, he reminds Winslow that she’s an outsider. Winslow does her best to stay away from Griffin, but fate had other plans for these two…

Winslow was one tough cookie! Life hasn’t exactly been a walk in the park for her and she dealt with everything life threw at her with an unimaginable grace. She is the type of person who never gives up, listens to her gut, and always sticks to her guns. And then we have Griffin. Griffin loves his family and loves his community. He’s not a fan of newcomers and can be a jerk when you don’t really know him. There is more to Griffin than meets the eye and he is definitely an unforgettable book boyfriend.

I loved the romance between Griffin and Winslow. The moment these two were around each other, you just knew that one night was never going to be enough. Their chemistry was off the charts and just oozed off the pages. I loved the way their relationship just flowed. It was an incredible slow burn that just left you aching for more. Ugh! I just couldn’t get enough of these two together.

If the incredible romance wasn’t enough to keep you glued to the pages, Devney Perry threw in a mystery that will keep readers guessing. I loved trying to figure out what was going on and putting all of the clues together. I had my suspicions and was pleasantly surprised when it all came together in the end.

Indigo Ridge hit all the marks for this reader. Indigo Ridge is a captivating and entertaining read. It’s well written and will easily consume all your thoughts. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to put this book down. I personally devoured it in just a few short hours. Indigo Ridge is the perfect blend of romance, drama, and suspense. I loved all the small-town feels and enemies to lovers vibe. I loved the danger and I loved that this author kept me on my toes. Honestly, I loved every moment of this story and can not wait to dive further into this series!

Book Review – Room For You (Cranberry Inn) by Beth Ehemann

Posted on

This book has been out for a little while now and I had looked at it a few times but passed it by in favour of something else. I’m glad I finally one-clicked it. What a cute story! The twins sealed the deal for me. There are few things I love more in this world than twinos and redheads and this book had them both.

Kacie has been burnt by men. First, when her father walked out on her and her mother when she was a teenager, and then again when her boyfriend left her and their twin daughters with nothing more than a scribble “see ya” on the back of an old receipt. Now Kacie lives a quiet life. Her days are spent helping her mother out around the family Inn, studying to become a nurse, and bringing up her twin daughters.

Brody Murphy, a local hockey star, is seeking refuge from a nasty storm when he comes across the Inn. An undeniable bond is formed between them but Kacie is struggling to move on from the past. The story that follows is a sweet story of two different people from different worlds trying to find a way to live their lives together.

First off, I love the romance in this book. There was instant attraction but not instant love. They agreed to take things slowly and spent time with each other before…getting down to business. I’m not a prude by any means but I love that they took the time to get to know each other first! There was a good base to start a relationship on.

This story was told in dual POVs and both Brody and Kacies personalities shone through. Brody was so sweet, but also had a very funny & stubborn side to him. They had an intense conversation about the word “moist” that made me snort like an idiot. He was golden.

“Oh I see you’re back again, smiley face. I hope you’re ready to get your ass kicked this time. I’m gonna turn that on eye into a wink if it kills me.”

Kacie was lovely. I would have liked her to have a liiiittle bit more spunk though. I actually found myself enjoying her friend Alexa more. But I admire the way she loved her children. So many young mothers in her position wouldn’t do half as good of a job and she did. She was a strong character and I loved her for it!

Room For You didn’t end on a relationship cliff-hanger BUT the epilogue did have a cliff-hanger at the end of it in the form of her ex-boyfriend (and father to the Twinkies) showing up at the hospital where Kacie worked. So there is definitely more of this story to be told. I won’t be rushing off to buy the sequel,  Room For More, immediately because I’m just not a huge fan of drawn out romance series. I know some people will want to shoot me for this, but I just kind of feel like it’s pointless and I get bored of the story. I will however be picking it up when I next have a book lull to see how Kacie and Brody’s story ends.

“You were scared, Kacie, just like you are about life. I wanted you to see that sometimes, even when something terrifies you, if you just give it a chance its actually pretty incredible.”

All in all, a cute read. My husbands on holiday at the moment so I managed to get him to entertain our kiddos while I devoured this in an afternoon.
