My Thoughts:

⁣I loved the first book in the series but this book focuses on a different sibling so it can definitely be read as a stand-alone. We met the three siblings who are running their parents inn and this is Levi’s story. He is the oldest and feels a lot of responsibility but when he meets Mia – the attraction is undeniable. We also get to peek in on Molly and Adam from the first book.

Levi is compassionate and wants to help support his sisters and Mia is able to let down her guard and trust him. Their issues are realistic and easy to relate to. Their relationship is heartwarming and just like in the previous book in this series, a mystery pops up involving a journal and some old jewelry.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable, small town read with humor and a mystery!

Publisher Description:

A jilted bride. A struggling innkeeper. And a romantic mountain getaway that changes everything

Rising Hollywood star Mia Emerson is looking for a safe place to land in the wake of a public breakup and celebrity scandal, and she finds it in the lake town of Bluebell, North Carolina—the location of her canceled honeymoon. She wants nothing more than to hide and wait for the tabloids to die down.

Soon after her arrival at the Bluebell Inn, Mia meets Levi Bennett, who runs the inn along with his two younger sisters. Drawn to one another from the start, Mia trusts Levi to keep her location from the press, and Levi confides in Mia about the precarious financial state of the inn—a secret he’s been keeping from his sisters.

When Mia and Levi discover an old journal that hints at a rare diamond necklace hidden in the inn, they set off on a treasure hunt to find the long-lost heirloom. What they don’t expect to surface are feelings they thought were safely locked away. Mia and Levi must decide if falling in love again is too big a risk—or if it will uncover a treasure of its own instead.
