Happy Tuesday, Reader Friends!!
I’ve got another book review for you. Today is the release of Denise Hunter’s Autumn Skies, the third and final book in the Bluebell Inn Romance series. I hope you’ve placed it on your TBR pile!
About the Book
Facing the past is easier if you don’t have to face it alone.
The Bluebell Inn is turning a profit, and it’s time for the Bennett siblings to sell it and move on. Only Grace has plans to stay in the small lake town of Bluebell, North Carolina, where she hopes her growing outfitters business will save her from the loneliness of her siblings’ departure and the persistent sense of unworthiness in her life.
A gunshot wound resurrects the past for Secret Service agent Wyatt Jennings, and a mandatory leave of absence lands him in Bluebell. There he must come to grips with the tragedy that altered his life fourteen years ago.
When Wyatt books a room at the Bluebell Inn, sparks fly between him and Grace. She volunteers to be his mountain guide, and he soon opens up to her, drawn to her strength and sense of humor. But both are reticent to talk about the survivor’s guilt they each carry, and when their pasts finally collide, their budding romance might not survive the truth.
I couldn’t wait to read the last and final book in the Bluebell Inn Romance. I’ve been a huge fan of this series and the delightful romance flowing through the books.
This book is about Grace, the last Bennett sibling. I wondered how Grace would be since she wa the youngest, but she’s an old soul and I could totally identify with that.
Not only that, but Wyatt also is an old soul and probably my favorite Denise Hunter hero to date. I loved the scenes with him and Grace. Loved seeing them observe each other and esteem one another. There were so many swoony parts (first kiss, declaration of love, etc) and so many parts that had me either laughing out loud (Grace’s blunders) or wincing (Levi’s blunders).
I was very happy to with this conclusion and I’m sad it’s over. But I’ll definitely revisit these trio in the future for rereading.
