Gah! This was a difficult review to write, especially since this is an author I have always, hands down enjoyed from start to finish. But this was one of those reads where my focus was all over the place. I wish I could say I loved it, as there were moments I really did, but there were times I felt completely removed from what I was reading and found myself skimming.
It was hard for me to make a real connection with the main characters. It may have been due to all the side stories going ...more

Enter Pippa Turner. A woman who left her small town of Ghost Falls, as soon as she turned 18, to make a name for herself in L.A. After enjoying success as the host of a makeover show, things take a turn for the worst when her ex-boyfriend/producer humiliat ...more
Ghost Falls #1
Having read Sarah Hegger’s historical romances but never her contemporaries I was interested in finding out what they would be like – and – I found out they are delightful if all are like this one. They have family, drama, ups and downs, great characters, love, romance, decisions to be made and an ultimate HEA for the main characters.
Pippa returns home to Ghost Falls to lick her wounds and figure out her future after the TV show she hosted was sabot ...more
As a fan of Sarah Hegger's Sir Arthur's Legacy series, this is my first time giving her contemporary romance a shot. I'm not a huge reader of contemporary romance because I have gotten rather picky (it's a side effect of finding gray hair, I promise). But I will be adding Sarah to my trusted authors list for contemporary. Positively Pippa checked all my boxes with mature characters, a likable heroine, a fun flirty hero, a lovable secondary character, minimal angst and drama, and an awesome setti ...more
As an avid reader of Sarah's book I wasn't sure what to expect from this series. Let me say I loved it. It is a fun and witty book that has lot of layers to it.
Pippa is at rock bottom she goes home to her Grandmother's (Phi) to heal. She doesn't expect what she finds there. As time goes on the way she perceived things her whole life really aren't the way she thought. She really has a lot to learn.
This book will keep your interest from beginning to end. You will have ...more
This is a fun read, whilst still addressing some pretty serious issues. It is an interesting mix of discordant families and deep devotion. And at the same time is a sexy, satisfying second time around romance.
Pippa a tv star on the wane, thanks to a nasty producer boyfriend's dirty editing of her show, has returned to her home town to hide out. We get to meet all the small town's characters - the biggest of all being her ...more
I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! The release date is slated for May 30th.
This story is the first in a new series for Hegger. As I had been previously introduced to her work, I was excited to see what she had in story for us with this new series.
This story sticks pretty much to the formula one is familiar with in this genre, there is not too much to ...more

Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you figure out what life is really meant to be. Such is the case for Agrippina “Pippa St. Amor” Turner. When her life unfairly implodes on national television she does what any self-respecting woman will do: she goes home. Home is Ghost Falls, Utah, her grandmother Phi, and Matt (though she doesn’t know it at the time). As Pippa tries to get her life back on track, Matt tries to become more than just “St. Matt” who gave up everything when his father d ...more
The chemistry between Pippa and Matt was outstanding and completely drew me in. I loved this book and found I didn’t want to put it down. What can I say about Phi, except that everyone should have a Phi in their life. That character was a freaking trip and had me laughing from the beginning to end. The support characters gave the story depth and set the series up perfectly. I can’t wait for Becoming Bella. All in all, I will be definitely recommending this ...more

I absolutely loved this book. Ms. Hegger is a new to me author but I certainly will be reading more of her work, she has a great writing style. I also enjoyed the small town setting. I highly recommend this book.
It’s a fun read with heart. You’ll love it.
I received an ARC of this book, via Net Galley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.

POSITIVELY PIPPA, the first book in a new series by Sarah Hegger, takes place in the delightful small town of Ghost Falls, a small mountain town in a growing resort area. We are introduced to a new cast of interesting characters, many of whom I’m sure will be back to tell their stories in upcoming series installments.

I'll admit I've never read a Sarah Hegger book, but this one sounded really cute, so I decided to give it a try. I'm so happy that I did. I really enjoyed it.
For both the main characters in this book there are some complex family dynamics that come into play. Pippa, the heroine, is home after being disgraced in Hollywood. She used to host a show that did makeovers for women. Her ex, who also produced the show, decided he wanted a younger version of her running the show so using fancy ...more
