Starting Over by Stacy Finz (Nugget #4)


"A charming small town filled with inventive characters and sweet romance" --Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author
Starting Over (Nugget, #4)
The mountain town of Nugget, California, may be tiny, but with its breathtaking scenery, fresh air, and lovable locals, it has everything. Not to mention it's the perfect setting for firsts—and seconds—of all kinds…

On the day of her glitzy New York City wedding, society girl Samantha Dunsbury ditches her Wall Street groom, and hops in her convertible. Her only plan is to head west. But when a pit stop lands her at a lovely Victorian inn in Nugget, she doesn't want to leave. And when the innkeeper needs someone to fill in, Sam is thrilled to take the job—her first! For once, she's going to do what makes her happy. She just has to figure out what happy looks like. She never expects it to look like her surly new boss…

The last thing Nate Breyer needs is a debutante dilettante mucking up his business. How his sister—and co-owner—could've hired Sam is beyond him. Nate's known women like Sam before—he was engaged to one once. With no options, he'll just have to keep his eye on her while also keeping his distance. But to his surprise it turns out Sam's got a knack for the job, and for putting folks at ease—including Nate. As business—and pleasure—heat up their relationship, Nate finds himself ready to do anything to persuade the runaway-bride to stay permanently gone… 
My review:   Starting Over by Stacy Finz (Nugget #4)


I like this series a lot and have read all 4 books so far.  Can't wait till the next book comes out to. (I read the tease & was so disappointed that I had to wait.)

There are so many characters returning from previous books.  We finally find out why Samantha was the runaway bride.  She is the main character.    Samantha Dunsbury has taken her first job at the Lumber Baron as Maddy replacement while she is on maternity leave.  She is also going to be event planner for the bread & breakfast.

Nate Breyer with his sister bought the Lumber Baron.  He is also part owner and manager of 10 there hotels.  He is spending more and more time in Nugget since his daughter was born.  He is the father but never planned to be.  He donated the sperm so his friends could have a child.
Nate is positive that Samantha is not going to last for long in Nugget.  He does not date people who work for him.  Besides Samantha reminds him of his ex-fiance.

We also meet a few new characters.  I really like Lucky.  Can't wait to see his story unfold more.

There is a lot of drama, event planning, romance and a couple of love scenes that I skipped over.  I hated when I had to stop reading for one reason or another.  I want to come back and visit Nugget again.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Kensington Books.  In return I agreed to give honest review of Starting Over.
