I think the father will discover an illness (nothing life-threatening) and will end the relationship, realizing that he was going through a mid-life crisis.

Brook will become Mayor and that brings about all kinds of obstacles for the construction plans and family dynamics. May even be the path to a romance between Brook and Tag. Lots of possibilities left open.(less)

3.5 stars.

My Kind of You is the first book I've read by Tracy Brogan and, with a writing style which was easy to get along with and a cast of quirky, funny characters, she's an author I'll be checking out again.

"Too bad he was officially the enemy."

I love an enemies-to-lovers story and this is one which doesn't bring too much drama. Divorcee and single mum, Emily Callaghan is returning home to help her Gran renovate a rental property and repay her 10k loan when, whilst stranded at the airport, she meets developer, Ryagain.
Twelve years ago, Emily left Wenniway Island. She ran off with her summer romance, and burned all her bridges on the Island. Now divorced and with a twelve year old daughter she finds herself flat broke and back on the island. Her grandmother has offered her a lifeline, a job renovating one of her cottages and turning it into high end tourist accomodation.

Ryan is a project developer who finds himself on Wenniway Island when his recently widowered father takes up with a woman. A woman he is conv

ARC Review

I began reading Tracy Brogan's MY KIND OF YOU last night around 10 pm. At 2:30 am, I was still awake reading and laughing so loud and hard I was sure I was going to wake up the people in the condo next door. I finally called it quits when I fell asleep while reading and my Kindle fell on my face and split my lip. That's the only reason! I went right back to reading as soon as I woke up today and finished it with a smile and a satisfied sigh. This funny, heartwarming, can't-

Best narration EVER.. You gotta listen to this book. BUT don’t listen to it unless you have a good sense of humor.

What can I say about this book? Other than I absolutely loved it. Why? Because of Amy McFadden. She was just phenomenal. So many characters she was able to do and so many emotions. This was the best narration I’ve ever heard. You can’t go wrong with a book that’s free with KU and $1.99 through Audible.

It was a story about a 59 year old man having an affair with a 26 year

This book reminds me so much of That Second Chance. Old small town community who make their business to knows everyone business. Do I like it? Nope. I think the story is too much of characters and not much characters development. The romance is also dim in the background. What I can not really stand is the dragging.

I mean yes i know that is shocking a 59 years old dating 26 years old especially in a small town. But does it have to be the highlight of the entire book? It bored me to tear

This was such a funny book. As you know I love family sagas. This one did not disappoint at all. The standout character would have to be Chloe. She was a hoot.
This story was about Emily Callaghan and her daughter Chloe going home to a small island in Michigan for the summer. Emily has been a single mother for the last 7 years officially but since day one unofficially.
She has had basically no family support of her choosing because her father (Chief of Police) did not make it easy t

Loved....loved....loved this book! I was reading it and couldn't stop laughing out loud. Finally my husband asked me what was so funny and as I was reading him a scene about horse back riding he started to lose it too! I love when a book makes me feel so happy!!!!!
A small-town yummy contemporary romance with plenty of humor and a family focus... I loved it!

We don’t have to tell secrets. We don’t have to talk at all. We could just, you know, kiss . . . and stuff.”

My Kind of You by Tracy Brogan is a highly entertaining contemporary romance with a great island setting. It is the hilarious story of house flipper Emily Callaghan and land developer Ryan Taggert.

First, I want to share about the idyllic locale. Michigan’s MacKinac Island

This book was ok. The writing was fine and the characters were likeable. My problems were that the plot was far too predictable and the descriptions of Emily's romantic intentions were too long and drawn out.

Not the best

I love all of Tracy Brogan's cheesy romance books. But this one was slow. Took too long for me to care about the characters. And one I did, it was over.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is a real gem of a book - I definitely recommend it to you in all circumstances except one ... if you have had surgery and it will hurt to laugh, because truly some of the things you read will have you in fits of giggles.

When we speak of genres we never mention the "island off the coast of" romance - and yet there are some truly superb examples - and this is clearly going to be a winning series in the game. There is a hu

Cute start to a new series...
This is a cute and sweet start to a new series. An story set on a charming lakeside town, with a host of quirky characters., makes it an easy albeit predictable book. My complaint is that it felt very rushed towards the end, and we didn't get any resolution to a couple of issues. The ending is HFN at best, I would have liked a little more time with the main couple as an actual couple, they come together officially at the very end, and we don't get to read about anything be

After reading 7/8 horrible books in a row, I thought I was never gonna find an interesting book ever again! My Kind of You was a breath of fresh air!!! I loved it! I just totally fell in love with the plot and the characters! And my God, Chloe is just so adorable!!! The reason it didn't get a 5 star rating was cz I found the ending a bit lacking,,

I still loved loved loved the book! I can't wait for the second or third or I dunno how many books this series is gonna have!

Sweet, romantic, funny

Tracy Brogan has once again written a warm, romantic story, full of humor. My Kind of You is a book that made me laugh, cry, and feel the love between its wonderful inhabitants. The characters in this book are sweet and quirky, feisty and lovely. Each page of this book is filled with tenderness and humor, a heartfelt story that will provide readers with hours of joy and love.

A nice, fun, an easy read. A perfect book when you don't want to think too much about plots and storylines. With that being said, a plausible and believable storyline with interesting characters. Yes, you will guess the ending, but who doesn't in romance books?. I will read the next one in the series!

This was okay. Your basic formula romance. Beautiful man and woman fall in lust, then at some point realize it’s love. Misunderstandings pop up, but ultimately a happy ending. Hallmark movie type of book. Fluffy, basic beach read.

Whenever I want a light-hearted fun book to read, I always check to see if Tracy Brogan has a new one out. I was so happy to see she did! I started it this morning and finished it tonight. Thank you for keeping a smile on my face through out the book and the day. Perfect read for the beautiful day it was! Thanks @TracyBrogan!!

This was an okay read. I didn't dislike it but can't say it was memorable either.

First time reading Tracy Brogan and it won't be my last. A fun loving romance story about the meaning of family and forgiveness. A very hard book to put down because I had to find out what would happen next. I loved every minute of it and hated to see it end.

My Kind of You is funny, thoroughly charming, and brimming with warmth.

Life has not been kind to Emily. Flat broke from a house flip gone bad, and trying desperately to shield her daughter from the reality of their situation, Emily has sunk to the last resort of borrowing money from her eccentric grandmoth
