Prudence Bice just became my new favorite author! She is talented in so many ways, from creating fabulous characters, to a historical setting, to an incredibly gripping plot line. I am so happy to have had the chance to read this soon-to-be released book!

But, she has just one thing to do before she leaves……kiss Ridge. So, she steals that first kiss with her best friend, leaves and doesn’t for one minute forget the feeling of kissing Ridge. Now she’s back to help her granddad and seeing Ridge again, handsome and helping out, well, she just can’t get over that first kiss. Problem is, he’s not a kid anymore and she’s got a beau named Dawson back in New York who wants to marry her. How can they be so near each other and not remember that kiss?
With just the right amount of sparks and romance, and just the right amount of humor mixed in, this one fantastic read! I loved the interaction between the characters and the plot line that instantly sucks you into the heart of the story. You’re swept away to another place in time and you become the characters, and feel their emotions through out the story.
I highly recommend this new book from Ms. Bice! You’ll fall in love with her writing style and find yourself among a new set of fun loving friends with this 5 Book worthy read. I can’t wait to see what else Ms. Bice has in store for her new found fans, starting with her current release, The Widower’s Wife.
