Cider Brook by Carla Neggers (Swift River Valley #3)
Unlikely partners bound by circumstance…or by fate?
Being rescued by a good-looking, bad-boy firefighter isn't how Samantha Bennett expected to start her stay in Knights Bridge, Massachusetts. Now she has everyone's attention—especially that of Justin Sloan, her rescuer, who wants to know why she was camped out in an abandoned old New England cider mill.
Samantha is a treasure hunter who has returned to Knights Bridge to solve a 300-year-old mystery and salvage her good name. Justin remembers her well. He's the one who alerted her late mentor to her iffy past and got her fired. But just because he doesn't trust her doesn't mean he can resist her. Samantha is daring, determined, seized by wanderlust—everything that strong, stoic Justin never knew he wanted. Until now…
My Review: Cider Brook by Carla Neggers
Cider Brook is the #3 in Swift River Valley. I like Swift River Valley. There are a lot of characters from past books that are back.
New characters. Small town life. Lots of secrets, romance, pirates. A welcoming feeling to the town.
Samantha studies pirates. She is following clues to Knights Bridge. She has her Uncle & cousin drop her and her backpack in middle of town. She finds her way to old Cider Mill in bad weather and breaks in. Soon she realizes it is on fire.
Justin is checking for damage when he sees the Mill on fire and his padlock off the door. He finds Samantha on the floor and gets her out in time.
This is the second time Samantha has been to Knights Bridge. Last time someone saw her and talked to her new boss and she was fired for not revealing her secrets to him. Samantha does not lie but she is not forthcoming with everything either.
Justin does not trust Samantha and he is having her watched.
I really like Justin and Samantha's family they bring a lot of fun, and life to the story. Lots of family connections with the characters.
I like how they share history of the area as part of mystery with each book and drama with modern day couples. It makes the book so much more. It does make me want to eat apples. I wonder what the next book in the series will be.
Their is one love scene that I just skipped over.
I will keep reading books by Carla Neggers in the future.
I was given this ebook to review and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
