Now that I’m four stories deep into the Treasured Dreams series, I know for sure that the 12th will be my favorite days on the calendar for a few more months.

This is another great story from Hatler. And it’s also another time I can’t really say much about what I read. It’s too easy to dive into the deep dark Spoiler Ocean when talking about these short stories when there’s so much story leading up to each one, but I can say that the series isn’t losing steam. If anything, it’s picking up steam and getting even better each time.

I can also say that I was surprised with this one. As the title and description promise, there’s some sort of proposal involved. What kind of proposal is it though? How will the characters handle it? There’s a lot to be assumed when reading this, but I was caught off-guard with the final outcome. And it gave me a deeper appreciation for Hatler’s writing.

Now I only have to sit and twiddle my thumbs for another month before I can read the next story. I hope I can last that long.

This is the third story in Susan Hatler’s Treasured Dreams series. I think of the three, this pulled a head slightly as a favorite. I feel that this is where the series will really start taking off and expanding, as Holly and Dave’s relationship does the same.

Holly has to make a big decision in this story. No matter what what she finally decides, her life will change. With it, the course of this series. I know what she decided, and I can’t wait until story four is released. I don’t think I’ll get tired of Holly’s story.

#Review Repost: An Unexpected Date, by @SusanHatler

Just over three years ago I read my first story from Susan Hatler. After that, I continued to read more or her work, but the first one stuck with me. It was short, simple, and a great, quick romance.

Recently, Hatler released a sequel/continuation to that story. Before I go out and read that one, I wanted to reread the first to get ready for what comes next. I did that today and I enjoyed the story just as much, if not more the second time around.

Instead of re-reviewing it, I decided to post my old review of the story. It reflects pretty much the same way I feel about the story today, and also it will give you a glimpse of where I was as a reviewer at the time since it was one of my early reviews. I hope I’ve shown improvement since then, tough.

Without further rambling, here’s my 3 year old review of Susan Hatler’s An Unexpected Date. (Stay tuned for a review once I read story two, and story three when it’s released.)

An Unexpected DateTitle: An Unexpected Date (Treasured Dreams #1)
Author: Susan Hatler
Rating: 4/5 stars

Holly loves living in her cozy mountain town and all the surrounding beauty soothes her soul. She treasures beading jewelry for her own small business while watching nature and its amazing creatures outside her window. But, her mom begs her to move back to the city so she can find a man to marry. Holly doesn’t want to give up on her dreams, but does that mean she’ll have to give up on love? (description from Goodreads)

This short story was just what I needed to rewind from the day. It’s lighthearted just like I enjoy when I read a romance like this one. The main character can be anyone who’s out there working her dream job, even if it doesn’t pay the bills, and enjoys it. Her spirit is great. This could be a good set up for a mini series of stories. I was left wanting to read more, but in a good way. It was complete in itself, while at the same time leaving it open to the imagination for what will happen next.

#NewRelease: Every Little Kiss, by @SusanHatler

Kissed by the Bay

            Book 1            

                                                    

You’ve heard me talk about Susan Hatler’s writing before. I’ve posted a few reviews and shared a few other books that are on my TBR. Today, here’s another one that’s going up on my TBR. Susan has released Every Little Kiss today, the first book in her new series Kissed by the Bay. I hope you’ll take a look at it, and be sure to check out her other writing. They’re short,  sweet romances and I’ve enjoyed all that I’ve read so far.

Every Little Kiss

goodreads-badge-add-plus-8aed1006260a5092a7ebb2a64fe3968c

When Wendy Watts left Blue Moon Bay, she vowed never to return to the small coastal town where her parents had abandoned her and her brother. Now she’s a successful Realtor, and a workaholic who stays away from complicated emotions—until her grandmother dies, leaving Wendy the Inn at Blue Moon Bay and mandating that if Wendy sells it, she must put it on the market herself “in person.”

As soon as Wendy arrives in Blue Moon Bay, bad memories, the inn’s poor condition, and her brother’s pleas to keep the inn overwhelm her. Then she meets a sexy laid-back stranger on the beach, and Wendy does something she never does . . . she opens up and confides her problems to him. Since Max Huntington’s only in town for one night, Wendy spontaneously kisses him, hoping to be distracted from her troubles for just one evening.

But when Wendy begins the painstaking process of fixing up the inn in order to sell it, Max tells her he’s staying on longer. He’s enchanted by the charming inn and even more with the kisses they shared on the beach. He wants to help her with the repairs, and she reluctantly accepts his offer.

Although she’s determined to remain detached from the allure of her inn, Blue Moon Bay and Max, every repair, every stroll on the beach, and every moment spent with Max, draws her in and reminds her of the local legend she’d believed as a child: that being kissed by the bay under a blue moon will lead to love that lasts forever.
