A very sweet and light romantic story.
Summer was a beautiful character, full of dreams and inspiration, dreaming to open her own pastry shop. Her landlord was Grayson, a quiet person who liked his routine.
It was uneventful, with no sparks or emotions and had plenty of narration.

Favorite Quotes:

She’d learned the hard way it was easier just to agree with everything her mom said. And live halfway across the country from her, too. Her father had the same idea: he’d divorced Eve when Summer was six, and now lived up in Alaska with his third wife and five Husky dogs.

The only buns she needed in her life were the kind that came with pistachio crumble and caramel glaze. After all, once people had a taste of her sticky morning rolls, they all swore they were better than sex.

Incredibly enjoyable book with the kind of food porn that makes you (me) want to bake. Like Lisa Kleypas’ Dream Lake, the heroine channels her love of life through her food. I’m not a big pastry person personally, but when Summer starts on about the croissants, the tarts and most especially a Bourbon soaked peach cake I am all in.

I am currently contemplating this

Anyhoo, back to the story. Summer slaves away for a

Summer Bloom and yes that's her real name has always loved cooking, but baking has been her dream, and she has always dreamed of opening her bakery. For years, she has been trying to earn her way in the world and working her way up the restaurant industry as things are complicated when your mother is a famous television cook and published cookbooks. A lot of people think she has gotten where she has because of her mother Eve Bloom, but that is far from the truth, in fact, her relationship with h ...more

Who doesn't love yummy cake? I admit when I saw the goodies in the cover I wanted a taste. All for you is book two in this series but works great as a standalone. The location sounds the perfect place to open a quaint bakery with it's own garden just idyllic. Summer had a great idea there and reclusive Grayson might be in doubt but can't resist the goodness.

Oh the stress in the busy fast paced kitchen life is not for all. I can understand Summer's dilemma after all the shadow of her family name

Sweetest Tale Of All

Five Winning Stars

I was absolutely thrilled to now read the second series, Sweetbriar Cove. Written by the fantastic author, Melody Grace. Centred on Poppy Somerville's closest best friend who ventures into her life making the sweetest cakes and desserts too.

Summer Bloom wanted a holiday. She needed a break from her work as a Chef. She needed relaxation time to herself. She was heading out to work on a Bridal cake. Hoping now not to miss the Wedding Party too. All she ever h

This book is a slow-burn to a five-alarm fire!

Summer is trying to find where she belongs. Her love and gift for baking is the perfect conduit for her to make her mark. She is not after glory or attention. She just loves to watch people when they first bite into one of her confections. That moment when the eyes close and a yummy sound escapes as they savor her wares.

Grayson is looking for the safety of being by himself in a life without drama. He has been hurt before and it took him a long time t

This was a light, sweet, perfect Sunday afternoon read. First off, lets take a moment of silent to admire the gorgeous cover. It is simple, stunning, and adorable. Summer and Grayson are a delightful combination of chaos and order. Summer is wild, determined, and as sweet as the desserts she whips up. Grayson is your resilient alpha with a sexy accent.

I always enjoy reading Melody Grace -
I fell in love with Beachwood Bay and I am feeling the same for Sweetbriar Cove !! Summer and Grayson fall into an easy routine despite neither looking for the other. Summer is busy with her job and her mother looming over her every move while Grayson is busy avoiding most people and all drama. Not to say that Summer is drama BUT she has him considering breaking his routine and that may be a problem.

A baker and a bookstore owner.. Sounds like a match made in heaven.. Or not!
Grayson and Summer are polar opposites and I seriously wondered several times if they were
ever going to get their happy ending.
This book is definitely a slow burn, there is no fast paced race to a happy ever after. There are lots
of hurdles for this couple to jump first. The biggest one being that Grayson is so set in his ways that he has a

Melody Grace is one of my favorite authors and this book was such a sweet and beautiful love story!!

Grayson & Summer are two opposites who are attracted to each other. Summer is lively and wants nothing more than to make it own her own, and what better way than to do that in Sweet Briar Cove!! Grayson loves the serenity of Sweet Briar Cove and loves that he controls his own life, but when he meets Summer, that control goes out the window.

Summer was a great character. She was funny, sweet & loves

Is it crazy this book made me crave something sweet? Because it did. I have a appointment with a very mouthwatering eclair in the very near future.

Summer is Poppy's friend from book one. Grayson is the brooding Brit that was from the bookstore. If you didn't read the first book or can't remember, it's ok. This can be a stand alone.

These characters are all so great. Also after reading Beachwood Bay I didn't think there could be another town I could love more but Sweetbriar Cove is pretty spectac

I seriously love it when authors include animals in their stories, especially cats because I love cats, “so tell me, Marmaduke. How are you with a mop?” He purred in response, then settled down to lick himself. She smiled. “Figured.” Grayson understands his woman is not like most, “no, I love it,” Grayson answered. “I was just thinking, if you’re this excited over the farm stand, what’s going to happen when we go pick our own strawberries?” I absolutely adored this book, and I can't wait for mor ...more

A sweet love story that is light-hearted and feel-good...

I went into All For You excited by the blurb. It sounded like an endearing chick lit rom com. I'm going to go about this swiftly - there were elements that I loved and there were parts that weren't my cup of tea. I'm not someone that only loves Insta-Love or slow-burn, but I am someone that needs a good pace. It's such a pity that two thirds of this book are just slow and dare I say— draggy. It felt like I was in the fast lane stuck behind

Once again, Melody Grace brings us more fabulous characters to fall in love with in the new release in her Sweetbriar Cove series, All for You. She once more delivers a heartwarming romance that will make your heart quiver and swoon.

Summer has always lived in the shadow of her mother, a well-known celebrity chef who has always been self-absorbed. But although she followed her footsteps into the kitchen, Summer was never interested in fame. She just simply wanted to open a bakery and find a life

If you have read Meant to Be, the first book in the series, then you will remember Summer as Poppy's best friend who was working herself to exhaustion as a pastry chef in a high New York restaurant. As All for You opens, we see exactly what Summer's life is like as the head chef verbally abuses everyone in earshot in the kitchen and acts like a tyrant. When he forces Summer to cut her visit to the Cape short with ridiculous demands, she finds herself questioning whether a different life might be ...more

All For You (Sweetbriar Cove #2) by Melody Grace is a feel good delicious novel with a lovely heroine chef/baker, and a gruff, bearded British hero who owns a book store just because he wants to own a book store. This is a perfect read for anyone who enjoys small town contemporary romance. You also might have a craving for dessert as the heroine tries to open a bakery, even though the odds may be against her, which includes a Martha Stewart type mother who thinks of only herself and not her daug ...more

Reviewed at Romance Is Ageless

I was looking forward to Summer’s story even before I finished up Cooper and Poppy’s romance in Meant To Be. After all, with a best friend like Summer around there’s no way she’s staying back in New York City for very long. And Summer’s romantic adventure was well worth the anticipation.

We met Grayson in the first story and if he seems like a nice, quiet, unassuming Englishman then you’d be correct… and wrong at the same time. Grayson has trained himself to avoid ch

“What a curious man. Curious, unreadable, and undeniably handsome.”

“She felt a shiver of longing. It had been too long since she’d felt this way, the spark of possibility warming her blood and circling lazily in her belly.”

“Life’s unexpected detours were the best parts; that rush of heat, the thrill of possibilites. Summer thrived on it, and she knew her instincts led her to the right direction, every time.”

All for You was my first book from Melody Grace. The blurb sounded sweet, mostly light and fun so I definitely wanted to give it a try and I'm glad I did. This book was a quick, enjoyable read to me and has me looking forward to the next in the series.

I really liked Summer, right from the very start of the book. She is such a relatable character. Her mom is a cooking celebrity so Summer has that in the back of her head to try and live up to. Of course there is pressu

All for You: Sweetbriar Cove Book 2 is by Melody Grace. This book takes us back to Sweetbriar Cove on Cape Cod. The characters are somewhat developed although they could be a little better developed.
Summer is a pastry chef who has come to Sweetbriar to visit her friend, Poppy, and get some well-deserved rest. However, she isn’t here even one day before her boss, a chef, calls her back to work. In a fit of rebellion, she quits and decides to open her own bakery here in Sweetbriar. She finds the
Gata Leitora / Cat reader
Summer always wanted the support and attention of her mother, but she was always dedicated to her television profession, little cared for her daughter. Summer was not discouraged and took her place in the world of gastronomy by herself. Only his current boss a renowned and stressed-out New York chef is consuming all Summer’s energy. While delivering a cake at a wedding in a seaside town near where her best friend Poppy (Book 1) lives, she ends up being literally run over by a different cat.

I enjoyed this book so much I read it in one sitting.

This story centers around Summer, a pastry chef who loves what she does, but hate where she works and Grayson, a bookshop owner in the small town of Sweetbriar Cove.

Grayson lives a quiet, calm, organized (dull) life, and that's just the way he likes it... or so he claims. However, Summer comes sweeping into his life.

Her best friend, Poppy lives in the small town and when visiting her, Summer co

This was my first read by Melody Grace and I'm in love. I am a major sucker for a classic romance similar to a Hallmark movie on a written page. But this was better; it's my dream life in a book. Eeeeeek 😍😍

Upon meeting Summer Bloom, I knew this was a special book 💜 Her fire, passion, grace, and humor made for a delightful, yet spunky, character. and the charms of Sweetbriar Cove I can't even get started!!! Small, lake side towns wth charming bakeries, bookstores

Well this book was as sweet as Summer's peach cake!!!

I always love to read a Melody Grace book because I know I am getting a very sweet and romantic read. This was no exception...Summer was ready to break out on her own out of her Mother's shadow. Grayson just wanted to live his life according to his plan and his schedule with zero interruptions.
Well his plan went to hell the minute he laid eyes on Summer.
