Welcome to Apple Grove, Ohio (pop. 597), a small town with a big heart.
Caitlin Mulcahy loves her family. She really does. But sometimes they can drive her to her last shred of sanity—from her dad (“I’m not meddling, I just want what’s best for you”) to her eight-months-pregnant older sister to her younger sister, who will do just about anything to avoid real work. Cait just needs to get away, even if for only an hour.
When she sees someone in need of help on the side of the road, of course she’s going to pull over. She might even be able to fix his engine—after all, the Mulcahy family is a handy bunch. She’s not expecting that former Navy medic Jack Gannon and a little black puppy named Jameson will be the ones who end up rescuing in her.
This is the tenth book I read from my post Credit Where Credit’s Due. I read about One Day In Apple Grove by C.H. Admirand from Ionia at Readful Things Blog. You can read her thoughts on the book here.
I really enjoyed the first chapter of this book and then it all went downhill from there.
Basically it became a load of romantic drivel that dragged on and on. I was torn between rolling my eyes and gagging.
As I never let a book beat me unless it has sex or gore, I actually skipped ahead to try and find a sex scene so I could justify not reading it anymore. And I found one so that’s my reason for not continuing – however really i don’t think I’ve ever been so thankful for a sex scene in my life.
If you’re into romantic passion and desire, and that’s really all, then I’m sure you’d love this book however I need a bit more substance and story to go with my romance novels.
I was actually quite disappointed as I thought this book was going to be really enjoyable and well written with a good story and it wasn’t. I don’t like being so harsh however there you have it.
