Review: Vintage Dreams by Jannie Lund

You can never really know what to expect from a book. Even those penned by a favourite author. Sometimes you are surprised in a good way, and sometimes the surprise is jarring, and you are left disappointed. I didn't know what to expect when I decided to read Vintage Dreams, but then, that's part of the fun of reading. And I'm happy to say I was surprised by this novel because it was sweet and romantic and easy reading.

Series: Morello Cove, #1 
My Rating: ❀'s
Genre: Contemporary Romance

I think the first thing that attracted me to this novel was the cover. It looks fun and sometimes you need something on the lighter side and this one looked it could fit the bill. It did and I enjoyed this novel. It opens with Scott returning to Morello Cove, and he's not happy to be back. I wasn't sure how I felt about the hinting of his dark past--I had no idea if this novel was going to get angsty or sad, but luckily it was soon revealed that Scott had been treated badly in the town when he was a boy. And as much as he wanted to leave, he couldn't because of Danielle.

At first, Danielle was keeping him in Morello Cove because he was attempting to get her to sell the property her shop was located on, but it was quickly apparent that Danielle wouldn't sell for anything. So then she's keeping Scott in Morello Cove because she's Danielle, and he likes her and she likes him. It's as simple as boy meets girl but I liked that these two came together so organically and their banter and flirting throughout the novel made me smile. Danielle was feisty and had a temper, and it was cute because she usually coughed up to letting her temper flare. I liked her sass and I liked that Scott liked to rile her, but was also sweet about it being a good natured and down to earth guy.

The set up for the next novel is laid in place and I'm curious about the history between Fleur, Danielle's best friend, who is a very different sort of person, and Danielle's brother, Austin. I think they could make sparks fly!

All in all, a sweet and romantic story that will leave you smiling and with a feel good feeling. Who could ask for more?

I  would like to thank the author for providing me with a copy of the novel in exchange for an honest review.

Happy Reading,
