I haven't read Book One of the series and never felt lost. It definitely stood alone.

Elaine, a doctor, is used to working hard and getting what she wants. She used to spend many summers at the Bluebird Bed-and-Breakfast and has very fond memories. She wants to spend her time fixing things up to give others the same opportunity to make their own memories. I like how well-rounded she is--she practices medicine, decorates, and even takes up knitting.

Dean is the son of the owner of the B&B. He's ha

Shelves: 2015-reads, romance
First of all, this is a typical, sweet romance, but to be honest, that is the strength of this romance novel. You get exactly what you expect. No bedroom scenes, no profanity, and it is a quick read too. I didn't know that this was the second in the series but I had no problem jumping into this story. I never felt lost at all.

Even though the story is predictable, the author adds a few twists and turns along the way. The chapters are short and filled with sweet interactions between the two princi

The Bluebird Bet is a gentle, slow paced, light romance about two people who want to own the same property. Dean and Elaine both love the Bluebird B & B but envision different things for it's future. Elaine wants to restore the Bluebird to it's original glory and bring families back. Dean wants to focus on the fishing which is something that he loves. These two very different individuals have to learn to work together while they plot against each other.

The plot of the story is good - rivals who

Dr. Elaine Watson never loses, has to be first in everything she tackles--until she decides to learn how to knit. More important is winning the opportunity to buy the Bluebird B&B and bring it back to its former glory.

Dean Collins, son of the current owner, stands in Elaine's way, just as intent to win it and make it a fishing camp for loners like him, lately come out of a war zone with nightmares. His photojournalist cred is top-notch, but he's not sure he'll win the bet and be able to stay ho

I love that this wasnt your typical boy meets girl and falls in love romance.
These characters couldnt stand each other! Each wanted to prove they were right about what should happen to the Bluebird.
I could really relate to both sides and was torn about whose side I was on….all the while hoping they could just learn to work together.
But they were so headstrong! I didnt know how things would turn out, and for me that is proof that a story isn’t just good, but fabulous.
I enjoyed this authors writi
