A Date with a Book

I love reading and you will always catch me with a book. While I love all mysteries and romances, I am particularly stuck on Cozy Mysteries.

Willowleaf Lane - RaeAnne Thayne I absolutely loved this book. I requested it from Netgalley after being familiar with the author’s name, but having checked my Goodreads list, I haven’t read anything before. However, I am so glad I found this author.This is book five in the series. I did not feel as I was missing any prior information so definitely feel it could be read as a stand alone.I enjoyed the writing of the author. The setting and location were a very enjoyable small town. This book seemed very similar to the writing of Debbie Macomber and her Cedar Cove series.The town citizens lives revolve around one another and so with the additional reading of the other books there could be definitely more depth to the remaining characters in town you briefly got to know in this book.I loved the Candy Shop and wonder if somewhere there is a similar place with excellent fudge. I do like a good fudge and various flavors. The love story is very clean and enjoyable. Charlotte is definitely someone you can identify with whether it be yourself or someone you know very well. I just wanted to many times just yell at her to get on with it, but as always they don’t listen.Spencer is fighting a lot of baggage and also dealing with his daughter Peyton. She definitely adds to the story, as well as the love story. They are a great daddy/daughter duo and helped complete an excellent story.I’m very excited to have found this author and the series and will definitely seek out the remaining books of the series.
