You will never see this ending coming. Hunter as always has outdone it again. Her best book to date, wait don't I say that about every book? Well I think that you will feel the same way after you read Honeysuckle Dreams.
This is a 5 star two times book. I HIGHLY recommend it!
The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.
I’m so blessed to receive an advanced copy of Honeysuckle Dreams. It is the second of the Blue Ridge Romance novels, and serves nicely as a stand-alone, but Blue Ridge Sunrise will familiarize you with some of the characters of this book and their backgrounds—plus, it’s a great second-chance romance sto ...more

This is the second novel I've read by Denise Hunter, and I'm officially hooked. Honeysuckle Dreams is a fantastic read. I love the Copper Creek characters, Hope and Brady. The growing romance is believable, not sappy. The feel of the little hometown of Copper Creek is charming and makes me miss the Blue Ridge mountains.
Even if I wasn't lucky enough to read this advanced copy of Honeysuckle Dreams, I would add it to my bookshelf. I love this writer's style of good, clean romance.

After Blue Ridge Sunrise, I was really looking forward to reading Brady's story. It did not disappoint.
This is a sweet story of friends to more. Hope is a really good friend to Brady. She's already watching Brady's baby son (the baby's mom. and Brady's ex-wife, died recently), and she loves doing it. Due to some other circumstances, Brady and Hope get engaged and later married.
I loved seeing how their relationship developed, even with everything against them. Highly recommend!

What I Enjoyed
-For most of the book I really liked both Brady and Hope. I thought they made a good team and I enjoyed their blossoming romance. I liked how they interacted with Sam and their friends.
-This is more of a Marriage-of-Convenience story than the Fake Relationship I thought it was, but I still liked that aspect of it. It’s one of my favorite tropes and I thought it was well done. I liked that they went into th ...more
