“Return to the beloved, quaint town of Evergreen Valley for an enemies to lovers flirt romance and discover how your favorite side characters find their sweet happily-ever-afters along side the Hallidays in these novella-length stand-alone flirt romance books!
Hudson Deveroux is proud of the billion-dollar developmental corporation he’s built from the ground up. Blueprints, contracts, and cold-hearted board members have filled his life for the past five years. So when the fun-loving and beautiful Avery challenges his decision to demolish an old building holding back a major project he’s equally irritated and intrigued by her beauty and wit. He tells himself it was only a sweet kiss one heart-warming afternoon, but he never anticipated the power of a woman on a mission.
In desperate need of a story, award-winning journalist Avery Grant returns to Evergreen valley in the hopes of refilling the creative well while visiting family. Only the quiet getaway she’d hoped for is upended when a roguishly handsome Hudson steps into her family’s floral shop with an ultimatum and an impossible deadline. Never did she think her next piece would fall into her lap, but she senses there’s a bigger story behind those sexy hazel eyes and she aims to find out before her family loses everything they’ve worked years to build. Renewed with a goal and armed with an arsenal of sweet kisses and small-town persuasion, Avery sets out to prove even the ice-cold heart of a bigwig can be melted in a small town like Evergreen Valley. ” (description from Goodreads)
In Walks Love is what the series name suggests. It’s a flirt of a novella. A hint at a small town called Evergreen Valley. I haven’t read Hart’s main Evergreen Valley series yet, but having read this novella, I want to.
While I didn’t think this was the best novella I’ve read, it was still a good quick read. It was cute and light-hearted. I feel that the characters and the story itself weren’t able to be fleshed out enough to do them justice. There’s a good start here. It was just over fast and done a bit shallowly. Rewrite this as a novel and I think it’ll be amazing. I’m intrigued by Avery and the town.
Having read this novella, the Evergreen Valley main series is now on my radar. I think it’ll be well worth my time to visit this small town again.
