Synopsis:

Vanessa Pearce has returned home to Honeysuckle Cove from the runways of New York, where she enjoyed a charmed life as a plus-sized model until an accident brought that career to a crashing halt. The opening of Sweet Tea and Summer Dreams, a children’s tea party boutique, provides an escape from the heartache of shattered wishes.

The recent adoption of his niece Lanie has taught Colton James to appreciate the simple things. Everyone in Honeysuckle Cove seems to have forgotten Colton’s rowdy past—everyone except Vanessa. But when a visit to Sweet Tea and Summer Dreams causes their paths to cross once again, it’s Colton’s opportunity to prove to her that one shattered wish can lead to a beautiful dream come true.

I am grateful to Mary Manners for giving me a copy of this book. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


My review

Sweet Tea & Summer Dreams is the latest book in the Honeysuckle Cove series by Mary Manners.  These novellas are sweet romances that take place in a small town with an interesting legend.

The story started strong with a sudden conflict as a stray puppy Colt rescued wreaked havoc with Vanessa’s new tea party boutique.  The characters and their attraction and relationship were believable and fun to read.

There were quite a few things mentioned in the story that I wish had been expounded on at least to some level.  The accident was a big one, and I also didn’t get that Colt was a player for a while, yet he harbored an attraction for Vanessa that he never acted on (until now).  Why would he have followed her career?  I wish the author had made those things a little more clear.

Though the books in the series all build upon one another, they can also stand alone.
