    Samantha Bennett just wanted to get in and out of Knights Bridge undetected But her goal of doing that, and unearthing a three hundred year old mystery while trying to salvage her good name, is thwarted when she s caught in the cider mill as it goes up in flames Of course she s also rescued by good looking Justin Sloan in the process Now she s finding herself invited to weddings, falling in love with the town, and the center of attention Justin s the one who alerted her former mentor to her Samantha Bennett just wanted to get in and out of Knights Bridge undetected But her goal of doing that, and unearthing a three hundred year old mystery while trying to salvage her good name, is thwarted when she s caught in the cider mill as it goes up in flames Of course she s also rescued by good looking Justin Sloan in the process Now she s finding herself invited to weddings, falling in love with the town, and the center of attention Justin s the one who alerted her former mentor to her iffy past and got her fired two years ago So why is there this crazy chemistry between them now Why is her wanderlust gene suddenly wanting to stay Neggers never lets me down Never Though this book didn t have the edge of your seat twists I ve come to expect, I was nonetheless enthralled by the story The pirate angle tied together both with satisfaction and sweetness The secondary characters and setting were outstanding I also enjoyed the realistic approach between hero and heroine By not jumping the gun and laying their souls bare, they got to know one another on a gut deep level that made their journey fun This is part of the Swift River Valley series, and not to be missed

    I ve read a great many Carla Neggers books, and count her among my favorite authors in her genre She writes romantic suspense in a way that captures my attention and keeps it until the last page.That said, this installment left me feeling a little let down The story was good I was engaged and I kept reading until the end but it wasn t as good a tale as I have come to expect from this author I never did understand why there was so much angst over Samantha s past dealings with Duncan McCaff I ve read a great many Carla Neggers books, and count her among my favorite authors in her genre She writes romantic suspense in a way that captures my attention and keeps it until the last page.That said, this installment left me feeling a little let down The story was good I was engaged and I kept reading until the end but it wasn t as good a tale as I have come to expect from this author I never did understand why there was so much angst over Samantha s past dealings with Duncan McCaffery it s a driving force of the story, and it just didn t seem like that big of a deal to me There is a little bit of smolder between the main characters, but nothing like the usual electricity you find in a Carla Neggers book The pirate story line was interesting, and I wish it had been developed in greater detail It does seem, from the ending, that there may beto discover about this part of the story in hopefully upcoming books I received a free copy of this book from the Goodreads First Reads program in exchange for an honest review

    Nice story Hero is a carpenter in a little town in Massachusetts Heroine is not sure She s the granddaughter of an explorer, has done a little treasure hunting, is an expert on actual historical pirates, and the hero sort of got her fired 2 years ago She s sort of tracking down a pirate her granddad told her about, but not really Frankly, I found this story confusing I got no real sense of the conflict in the story, or why anyone would care about what was apparently supposed to be t Nice story Hero is a carpenter in a little town in Massachusetts Heroine is not sure She s the granddaughter of an explorer, has done a little treasure hunting, is an expert on actual historical pirates, and the hero sort of got her fired 2 years ago She s sort of tracking down a pirate her granddad told her about, but not really Frankly, I found this story confusing I got no real sense of the conflict in the story, or why anyone would care about what was apparently supposed to be the issue Maybe New Englanders aresuspicious of people they don t know I just didn t get it Nor did I really see the attraction between the hero and heroine I was told but if it was shown, I sure didn t see it But it was an interesting story Just really vague and confusing to me

    I thought this book was the weakest in this series I felt that the author tried too hard to make you feel like Sam was guilty of some major crime against Duncan Her supposed crime didn t feel like it was such a big deal to me I just couldn t understand why everyone would be so suspicious of her and how they thought she could possibly harm any of them now with her research into the Cider Mill and pirates None of them were ever involved in her previous employment situation with Duncan That pa I thought this book was the weakest in this series I felt that the author tried too hard to make you feel like Sam was guilty of some major crime against Duncan Her supposed crime didn t feel like it was such a big deal to me I just couldn t understand why everyone would be so suspicious of her and how they thought she could possibly harm any of them now with her research into the Cider Mill and pirates None of them were ever involved in her previous employment situation with Duncan That part of the story didn t make any sense to me I also thought that Justin was basically a jerk from start to finish and I didn t understand how Sam could fall for the guy since I never got to the point where I actually liked him very much I ve read and enjoyed other Carla Neggers books but just don t think this was one of her better ones

    Slow starting Could not figure out what Sam did that was so wrong She did not lie Loved the history of Knights Bridge, and the connection between the characters There are a lot of spin offs from this story Might be interesting to see where it goes At least it held my interest.

    I give this book an overall 3.5 stars The story was interesting and complex, but the not as filled with action nor suspense as I would have believed from reading the blurb While this story has a relatively slow pace, it is still very well written The main character has a lot of shadows in her past that must be dealt with before she can figure out what to do with her future, and Carla Neggers has always been good at spinning a good back story for her characters I didn t feel close to the main I give this book an overall 3.5 stars The story was interesting and complex, but the not as filled with action nor suspense as I would have believed from reading the blurb While this story has a relatively slow pace, it is still very well written The main character has a lot of shadows in her past that must be dealt with before she can figure out what to do with her future, and Carla Neggers has always been good at spinning a good back story for her characters I didn t feel close to the main character in this story for the first two thirds or so of the story The way she is portrayed made me unsure if she were trustworthy or not and I had a difficult time warming up to her There are also an abundance of other characters early on in the story and that made it hard for me to get to know any of them very personally What I did love about this story was the description From the very first few pages, the author managed to capture my adventuresome spirit with her beautiful descriptions of New England and adequately make me feel like I was there The love story is slowly built and has a nice ending, not entirely expected This was a good book to read on an evening when the weather outside made me want to transport to somewhere else I would recommend this to readers who like complex characters This review is based on a digital ARC from netgalley and the publisher

    From the blurb I assumed that the book would be a treasure hunt with action, adventure and bad guys trying to find the treasure first with the hero swooping in to save the day The book isn t like that at all The book follows Samantha who is on a personal journey to reconcile an incident from her past and discover her future The author has very cleverly weaved a historical story throughout the book Starting off with a pirate and his treasure and following on with a family who ran a cider mill From the blurb I assumed that the book would be a treasure hunt with action, adventure and bad guys trying to find the treasure first with the hero swooping in to save the day The book isn t like that at all The book follows Samantha who is on a personal journey to reconcile an incident from her past and discover her future The author has very cleverly weaved a historical story throughout the book Starting off with a pirate and his treasure and following on with a family who ran a cider mill How do these two groups of people connect and where is the treasure now This book is very much a drama it is set in a typical small town and we see lots of interference from many sources The book is slow paced, well written and keeps the reader guessing

    Disjointed, slow moving, and a weak premise for a conflict
