➳When destiny has a path fro two individuals that is blocked from being together, but years later are put back together to just be simply inseparable...

➳Not a lot of the time do I encounter upon a novel that is written in the third point of view in which I end up loving. However, with this beautiful romance my mind is set to keep reading more of Miranda Liasson's novel. Her writing is one that at first had me questioning whether I would love the novel or not due to all the drama and "extra"

4 - "...The angels are never wrong." Stars!

Then There Was You is the first book in Miranda Liasson’s new Angel Falls series. We have a bit of a second chance vibe going on with Police Chief Colton Walker and Dr. Sara Langdon’s reconnection, when she returns to town after a decade away.

Irritating her was too much fun…

You know the boy at school that pulled your hair, called you names and generally seemed to be a nuisance wherever you went, and not because he didn’t like you, but for reasons yo

Favorite Quotes:

He had one claim to fame: he’d bedded more women than an eighties rock star.

He doesn’t beat children or kill cats. Plus I’m twenty-nine. He’s not perfect, but who is? Maybe he’s as close as I’m going to come.

Don’t ever marry a man who doesn’t look at you like you’re chocolate ice cream…

Life is just too short to hate cake.

My Review:

Regardless of the author, I seem to brace myself when diving into the start any new series with an equal sense of trepidation and anticipation. My resp

My first book from this author but not my last one for sure. Second chance at love in a small town. Sara is a doctor and came back to town to help out her dad's practice. A year ago her fiance had dumped her for the cake girl from his bachelor party. She is now back and ends up sparring again with her ex's best friend who is also the Police Chief, Colton. After sharing a kiss do they really hate each other and then her ex pops back into town. Made a very good read. One paragraph had me laughing ...more

Four stars: A sweet second chance romance with delightful characters.

Sara is hesitant about returning home to Angel Falls. She is happy to be home to help with her grandmother who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, but she isn’t thrilled to be returning to the place where she was left jilted by her fiancé two days before their wedding. Then to make matters worse, she keeps running into Colton Walker, the police chief, who teased her in high school. As Sara settles in, she begins to see th

I absolutely adored this. It was a wonderful story filled with so much heart and love that completely filled me up. Excellent read!

Fun fact: the cover pulled me in. Seriously how cute is it? Then the synopsis got me because I love tension and animosity between characters so I was really excited about what was to come and I was not disappointed. I loved this so much. Colton and Sara were the best. They were great characters, genuine and hard working and so caring. They had this great antagonism h

Thanks to Forever Romance for this free review copy!
This super sweet romance has so much small town charm combined with the always-popular long-lost hometown love drama. A female doctor returning to her hometown after being abandoned by her fiancée right before their wedding + the town’s male police chief who was a teenage crush = a delightful cozy reading experience. The family dynamics were wonderful with the addition of Cookie and Nonna, the matriarchs of the two families. I loved how the fa
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

A definite must read by Miranda Liasson. I loved both Colton and Sara and really enjoyed reading about their trials and tribulations. When they finally saw past the past and looked into the future, the only one that they could see was each other.

Colton. Yes he was a regular bully in high school. But, he reminded me of the little boy pulling the little girls pigtails just to get her attention because he liked her and didn't know how to tell her. But, there were quite a few miscues between him and

I admit completely to the fact the reason I wanted to read this book was because of that beautiful cover.  Something about it just screamed READ ME NOW!  I love small town contemporaries and this sounded right up my alley.  What I wasn't expecting was to fall in love with this story from the very beginning.  THEN TH

I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for a honest review.

MIranda Liasson is a new author for me and since I was recommended to try her as an author because she had a new book coming out (this one) by the publisher, I decided to give it a go. And I don't regret it.

Then There Was You follows Sara Langdon, a doctor, who returns back to her hometown of Angel Falls after her grandmother grows more and more confused due to her dementia. Sara was seen as someone who wa
4 Stars

Miranda Liasson’s new series starts with a bang, with a mix of deep emotions, antagonism, humor and a heartfelt romance that kept me completely engaged.

Sara and Colton are the perfect antagonists. They have a history, one that ended in a not so pretty fashion but needs to be dealt with. The push pull between them was perfect and both Sara and Colton surprised me with their more vulnerable sides. Both are hiding insecurities that have plagued them for most of their lives.

“He had one claim to fame: he’d bedded more women than an eighties rock star.”

Ah, the second chance romance. The troupe that gives a couple a chance to try again. Rebuild, rekindle, and reevaluate. But will it work? Serafina is headed back home to begin work with her father. A medical practice with him will be just what she needs after the disaster of her failed engagement.

I will sum this up for you. It’s funny, sweet and is what I consider a perfect handbag book.

Get it. Read it. Love it.

Nice small town romance where h/H have set ideas of who the other person is.
May 11, 2018 rated it it was ok
A good enough premise, which was what caught my eye.

However, in the end I found it to be lacking.

The writing felt a little forced and the story, well, it wasn't as good as the summary portrayed it to be.

Overall execution was a 2 star rating for me, because I was able to get through it, so it had to be just okay.

Okay was not what I wanted. I barely managed to finish it and that was because I took breaks. If a book really grabs me then I barely take breaks.

This was a classic Miranda Liasson book and just what I needed. I loved the family aspect and watching Sara navigate her relationship with her father. Maybe because I've always been a bit of a daddy's girl, I always have a soft spot for father/daughter relationships, and their scenes toward the end of the book were really well done. I enjoyed the slow burn between Colton and Sara as well. I'm looking forward to reading about the rest of the siblings and this small town.
A small-town romance, my first thought - sign me up, but it was a bit of a bummer for me. The book has a good premise, one that caught my eye, sadly I just wasn’t keen on the execution, the magic wasn’t there for me, this fact led to some skim reading about 35% into the book and then again at about 62%.

Man, oh man. Aside from the enemies to lovers trope being one of my absolute favorites, the characters just DID it for me! Sara and Colton are my new favs and would it be too much to ask for more of them? They're just too perfect!

I picked this one up at random after I received a copy and it certainly lived up to its front cover blurb because I seriously couldn't put it down! I was so enamored with not only our main couple, but with all of the amazing and lively secondary characters whom I can't

Generally, I really enjoyed this. The writing was good, as were the characters and their dynamics. My major issue was just that this particular story was driven by negative motivations from both Sara and Colton. First Sara was scared to start a relationship with Colton (because reasons), then Colton lost his nerve (because reasons), and then again a third time one of them changed their minds about being together. I was getting whiplash.
But again, overall I liked it and, I will definitely

I love a good enemies to lovers romance, because both hate and love require such passion, and there can be such a fine line between the two. After all, the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference. And so much of the animosity between Sara and Colton seems to stem more from misunderstandings and fear than from actual dislike of each other. This book was like rolling in enemies to lovers catnip and it was g-l-o-r-i-o-u-s.

When her grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Dr. Sara Langdon came back to her hometown to be near her. Her first shift at the Angel Falls Community Hospital ER and she gets her nemesis as a patient. Colton Walker is the police chief and oh yeah, the man she blame for helping ruin her engagement a year ago. Sara also have to deal with the fact that working with (and for) her dad doesn't quite work as she would have liked.

On his side, Colton doesn't understand why Sara can't

I enjoyed reading this story because it demonstrated how love hurts, missed opportunities, fear of rejection (male & female), & second chances to get it right can make a story so entertaining that you will complete it in a few days. There were sex scenes in the book but explicitly graphic; just enough to bring the imagination alive. I'm looking forward to the 2nd book in the series. ...more

What a great enemies to lovers romance! Sara and Colton make the perfect pair. The conflict draws you in and has you rooting for them to find their way into each other's arms and hearts. The build-up in the story is wonderful, and you won't be disappointed in the end.
Back in town to care for her aging Grandmother, and taking a place in her father’s medical practice after Colombia, Sara never thought she’d ne back in the place that held so many difficult memories. Her engagement fell apart two days before the wedding when her fiancé slept with the “cake girl”, and she’s not been able to eat cake since. His best friend, Colton, the bane of her teenaged years, also is to blame in her mind – with the added resentment for his relentless teasing, so she’s determin ...more

Was a decent enough read, but its cons were unfortunately too problematic to ignore. The writing is okay but nothing special or groundbreaking and lacked that emotional punch, feeling a little too impersonal; and there were quite a lot of moments where you had to suspend your disbelief. I'll leave a few quotes to give you a feel of the uncomfortable girl-hate and evil-painting-of-a-woman concerning a girl they barely knew that occurred somewhere in the first third of the story:

“Well, Sara had certainly acted jealous about Colton’s date. And he had to admit that made him really…happy. He’d enjoyed sticking it to her too, and had taken a perverse pleasure in seeing her all riled up. Could it be possible she was interested in him, even after that just-friends speech?” 1 likes
