All's fair in love and war, especially in the Deep South...
Savannah Hale never planned to come back to Maple Cove, Georgia. Her hometown has too many painful memories, especially of her high school sweetheart, who was killed during combat. And yet here she is...broken-hearted from her mother's death and left to deal with the Hale family legacy—Maple Cove's landmark bed and breakfast. In need of repairs and near foreclosure, she’s hanging on to the B&B by a thread. And the man out to buy it is the man she's never been able to forgive...or forget.
Former soldier Logan Park is haunted by memories of his own. Some are of his best friend. Others are filled with longing for the girl he could never have. Now Savannah is back, and their attraction can’t be denied. But Logan has already sacrificed everything to atone for his sins, and there’s no way he’ll let himself fall for a girl who might never love again.
You know those books that give you the warm fuzzies? Your B&B or Mine? is definitely one of those. Melissa West did a fantastic job of bringing the Southern charm, and sweet romance.
I adored both Savannah and Logan. Both characters are stubborn, and refuse to let go of whatever guilt and regrets they have. They obviously have a spark, and I don’t see a point in fighting it. Seeing these two characters bicker and relax around each other was endearing.
The writing is fun, honest, and exactly what I’d expect from a novel that takes place in the South. I loved the town of Maple Cove. It screams small town. You have the nosy people everywhere, and those that just want to stir up trouble. I also liked seeing Savannah interact with her siblings. Not everything is perfect, but they are family. What can ya do? I do hope we get more of them later on.
If you are looking for a Rom-Com worthy book, Your B&B or Mine? is one you should pick up. It’s full of swoon, emotion, great characters, and a sweet (and sometimes full of busy bodies) town.
