I read Carved Wooden Heart by Starla Hartless and Elizabeth Horton-Newton (twice) and when I heard that Starla was working on a new series I was so excited that I asked for an ARC copy. I wasn’t disappointed! This is the first in a series she calls The Cougar Love Series and it is off to a great start!
The Libby in Dear Libby is an advice columnist in Sweetwater, TN whose real name is Sadie and unbeknownst to her, her editor arranged for her to be considered for a national position at Stark Publications. Jake Stark comes to town to interview her and while she thinks he is good looking she also thinks he’s a snob. He invites her to dinner and she blows him off but they end up at the same restaurant where he requests the table next to hers. When her best friend cancels at the last minute he invites himself to join her and well I’m not going to tell you the whole story, you need to get the book.
It is a very enjoyable read, and I will say there are a few complications. The setting is wonderful from the little town of Sweetwater to the penthouse suite in NYC to the mansion in Southampton Long Island, the descriptions are so vivid you’ll feel like you are really there.
I give it 5 stars and I am certainly looking forward to the second book of this series.
