Lia Riley takes her readers to the town of Everland, Georgia, for the first book in her new series of the same name; It Happened on Love Street.

Everland, Georgia wasn’t your everyday sort of place…

I am a huge fan of the small town romance genre, in series form this is one of my greatest joys to read because when written well you are introduced to and get to know and love a plethora of recurring characters as the stories develop while giving you individual charact

I enjoyed this small town romance overall. I have been wanting to read Lia Riley for a while and once I read the description for this book, I knew that I wanted to give this one a try. It was a light-hearted, fun story that went pretty quickly for me. This is the first book in a new series and I just loved the little town of Everland, Georgia.

Pepper has just relocated to Everland for a new job. She shows up for her first day of work
All of her life Pepper was the responsible one, the one who would do anything for her family, the one who carried too much weight on her shoulders, self-imposed or not. Now life has sent her to quaint Everland, GA, uprooting her Big City self for her first big job, a done deal until it was undone when she is “fired” on her first day. Although things don’t quite work out as planned for Pepper, one sure can’t say her eyes weren’t opened to life, fate and learning to live for the moment as the loca ...more

Pepper moved to Everland for a job position that was actually given to somebody else before she even got to the town. Pepper is in a new town without a job, but luck seems to be on her side, when she bumps into a local vet Rhett, who offers her a job. Being a dog walker is not something Pepper would have wanted, especially because she is afraid of dogs, but there's not much of a choice. There's chemistry between Rhett and pepper since they met, but because of Rhett's past, he wants to keep thing ...more

*I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

*3.5 Stars!*

Small town romances are truly one of my most favorite types of romances, but I don’t often get to read many since I have trouble finding them. So when I heard about Lia Riley’s upcoming release from Nick over at Nick & Nereyda’s Infinite Booklist, I decided to give this new-to-me author a shot, hoping that this sweet, southern romance would give

I can't wait to introduce you to Everland, my new small-town contemporary romance series. What will IT HAPPENED ON LOVE STREET deliver? A sexy (Southern gentleman) vet, a missing pirate treasure, a dog walker who doesn't like dogs, a dog (and gossip) obsessed town, an evil church organist and finding love where you least expect it.

I wasn't too crazy about this small town romance! While certain parts were lighthearted and funny, other times it was just too sugary sweet and cloying. There wasn't enough tension to keep me truly invested, and I ended up skimming when I felt like the book was dragging. Normally Lia Riley is a win for me, so I'll definitely give the next book in this series a go (I can already tell I'll like the spark between the next couple more, anyway).
I am a sucker for anything set in the south, so I was pretty excited to read this one.

I liked Pepper and Rhett. She's a bit of a martyr and he's a bit bitter, but together they're adorable. They're both genuinely good people and I enjoyed getting both sides of the story.

Plot wise, it's exactly what you would expect: prying neighbors, sassy older sisters, and a lot of dogs. The conflict {aka: the break up} and the resolution didn't take too long. There was an entire thread of plot that seemed t

I’m a huge fan of Lia Riley and when she announced a new series, I may or may not have done a happy dance. There’s something about her writing and her characters that I adore, and I knew I was in for a treat from the very first page of It Happened on Love Street. It’s very much a signature Lia Riley book, and I enjoyed every moment of it.

Lia Riley’s characters are always charming and endearing, and nothing is different here. Pepper has just moved to a small town in Georgia only to discover that
My gosh, Lia Riley never disappoints!  I have been a huge fan since I read her first book, "Upside Down", three years ago, and I've enjoyed every one of her titles I've read since.  While "It Happened on Love Street" was certainly more lighthearted than Riley's "Off the Map" series, I loved the change of pace and small town feel here.

Pepper Knight was a fun character. She's a bit introverted, highly driven to succeed, smart, sassy, and feisty. She's also petrified of dogs, due to a traumatic inc

Lia Riley is a contemporary romance author. USA Today describes her as "refreshing" and RT Book Reviews calls her books "sizzling and heartfelt." She loves her husband, three kids, wandering redwood forests and a perfect pour over coffee. She is 25% sarcastic, 54% optimistic, and 122% bad at math (good thing she writes happy endings for a living). She and her family live mostly in Northern Califor ...more
