The Brides of Blueberry Cove #2
Donna Kauffman
Released Sept 29th, 2015
Kensington: Zebra

There’s no place like seaside Blueberry Cove, Maine, at Christmas—and there’s nothing like a wedding, the warmth of the holidays, and an old crush, to create the perfect new start…
Interior designer Fiona McCrae has left fast-paced Manhattan to move back home to peaceful Blueberry Cove. But she’s barely arrived before she’s hooked into planning her big sister Hannah’s Christmas wedding—in less than seven weeks. The last thing she needs is for her first love, Ben Campbell, to return to neighboring Snowflake Bay…

As kids, Fiona was the bratty little sister Ben mercilessly teased—while pining after Hannah. But Fi never once thought of Ben like a brother. And that hasn’t changed. Except Fi is all grown up. Will Ben notice her now? More importantly, with her life in a jumble, should he? Or might the romance of the occasion, the spirit of the season, and the gifts of time ignite a long-held flame for many Christmases to come…

Something old might just become something new…

My Review

A wedding at Christmas in the beautiful and romantic Blueberry Cove: how can you not love this book? This is the classic book to read lying on the couch near the fireplace (access and decorated as it should), with the snow falling and a hot chocolate. It 's romantic and fun romance, perfect to get into the Christmas spirit.
Fiona is very busy planning the wedding of her sister Hannah. They want to get married at Christmas and with little warning, they decided just two weeks before Thanksgiving. Adding even more anxiety arrives the great love of her life. When she was a girl had taken a crush on Ben, the best friend of her brother but he had eyes only for her sister Hannah. Then they both left Blueberry Cove and were not seen again. Fiona has decided to return home for good while Ben is helping parents in the busiest period of the year, (they sell Christmas trees). One look and Fiona understands that she had never forgotten him and to fell the exact same emotions of when she was a girl. But this time it seems that Ben is not indifferent. But how do they handle a long distance relationship? Ben will have to choose whether to build something important with Fiona or give up to continue his activities in Portsmuth.
Fiona is an independent woman and was brave to give up her life in New York. Her work was not gratified her more and her life had become too hectic. She's very nice, clumsy, sweet. One can't help but love and cheer for her. It's through her eyes that we see Ben and then we fall in love with him just as her....
I love McCrae family. I like the relationship of Logan with his sisters and it's nice that in each new chapter we know better the whole family. Although it is the second book in this series can be easily read as a stand alone but read the series in order makes better involved in this wonderful family.
I love the style of this author, writes  romantic stories with realistic and believable characters with which it is easy to identify with and are never lacking humor and fun (the moment when Fiona meets again Ben is hilarious). I look forward to reading the third chapter.
If you are looking for a sweet romance then you need to read this one.

USA Today bestselling author of the Cupcake Club Romance series, Donna Kauffman has seen her books reviewed in venues ranging from Kirkus Reviews and Library Journal to Entertainment Weekly and Cosmopolitan. She lives just outside of DC in the lovely Virginia countryside, where she is presently trying to makeover her newly empty nest into something that doesn’t have to accommodate piles of sports equipment falling out of her coat closet (okay, out of every closet...and under every bed....), size 13 cleats and sweaty uniforms cluttering her foyer (and stairwell, and laundry room, and...), and a kitchen that should have come with a traffic light. And a pantry monitor. (Anyone with a clever idea on how to repurpose lacrosse sticks into matching reading lamps, she’s all ears!) When she’s not stripping paint, varnishing an old auction house find, or trying to avoid bodily injury with her latest power tool purchase, she loves to hear from readers!
