Review & Giveaway Tour: Summer on Mirror Lake by JoAnn Ross

When he lands in the emergency room after collapsing at the funeral of a colleague and friend, Wall Street hotshot Gabriel Mannion initially rejects the diagnosis of an anxiety attack. But when warned that if he doesn’t change his adrenaline-fueled, workaholic lifestyle he could end up like his friend, Gabe reluctantly returns to his hometown of Honeymoon Harbor to regroup.

As he adjusts to the sight of mountains instead of skyscrapers, Gabe discovers advantages to this small Pacific Northwest town he once couldn’t wait to escape. But it’s irresistible librarian Chelsea Prescott who, along with the two foster children she’s taken under her wing, makes slowing down seem like the best prescription ever.

Over the course of their summer romance, Gabe gets a taste of the life he might have had if he’d taken a different path. But with his return to New York City looming on the horizon, he’ll have to choose between the success he’s worked tirelessly for and a ready-made family who offers a very different, richly rewarding future…if he’ll only take the risk.
I have been reading enjoying the Honeymoon Harbor series by JoAnn Ross. So far I've found it to be wonderfully written with characters that I've really enjoyed spending time with. A plus in any book I read. 

In Summer on Mirror Lake, we have Gabe and Chelsea. These two for me are a complete opposite. They both lead very different lifestyles. Ones main goal is to make money, the other is to make sure people realize what a wonderful world reading brings to you. 

I think it's those difference that makes these two work so well. If they were both alike I don't think it would have worked for them. More so for Gabe. He definitely needs someone different than himself.  

Not only does the book deal with the romance of both Chelsea and Gabe but the fact that two little girls need a home. 

I love when the author adds something to make the romance just a little bit harder. For poor Chelsea and Gabe, it was just to figure out when they could make time for sex while having two little girls in the house. The idea was funny. Anyone with kids knows how hard at times this can be. The author did a great job of making this a funny problem. 

She also did a wonderful job of showing us how they fell in love. Even with Gabe fighting it all the way, (he couldn't see giving up his job) you saw how he fell in love with both Chelsea and the girls. 

 I really hope we have more of Honeymoon Harbor because I really enjoy it there. So, have any of you read her before? If you have do you have a favorite book, series? Share with us.
