A Dash of Love is the first book in the Pride, Oregon Series by Jill Sanders. Known for her sweet, charming and funny characters and equally good plots, Jill Sanders is definitely an author I don’t ever miss. However, this particular book was not a hit for me. While the prologue was mysterious enough to have piqued my curiosity, chapters following it washed off any traces of interest I had in the book.

Tall, tan, dark and sexy as hell, Parker Clark is headed towards the small of Pride in need of

Sweetly sexy, charming, fun, exciting and emotional romantic adventure with a twist of mystery thrown in. Loved coming back to Pride in this highly entertaining journey.

Sara Jordan is sweet, sexy and finally has the chance to run The Golden Oar that she has longed for. Parker is a charming, strong and the sexy know it all carpenter that was hired by Sara's uncle to update the old building. Sparks fly and tempers flair as accidents start to happen on the job site. Real page turner from beginning

It was so good to return to Pride and find out that they story had moved on to the next generation. All the original people were still there, just in the background. It was nice to see how life had progressed. One of Prides most popular haunts, The Golden Oar, is getting a new look and refurbishment however things don't go smoothly. This story had a bit of everything - romance, mystery and a few twists and turns along the way. This held my interest the entire time. I am really looking forward to ...more

Another wonderful sexy story with great characters, mystery, suspense, and romance based in Pride, Oregon. I loved Sara and Parker together in this small town romance where everyone knows everyone and secrets are hard to keep. It wasn't hard to fall in love with Parker.......sexy, hot, loyal, good with his hands, and a great cook! Loved it from beginning to end!

It is so good to catch up with some of the citizens of Pride. I really like Sara and Parker. Parker has gone through so much in his life and he thinks things might be settling down. Then he literally runs into Sara and the grocery store. Sara and Parker hit is off immediately, but there is trouble. Is it because of someone is Sara's or Parker's past. As they try to figure out who is causing all the trouble, they grow closer. I like the little surprise at the end.

A Dash of Love is such an easy and fun reading. It's a romantic novel, with a touch of mystery, that will keep you glued to the book.

Sara and Parker are nice, adorable people (as a couple and individually). Their love story was the cutest, and the way they look after each other is admirable.

Pride, Oregon, where the story takes place, is like the idyllic small town. It would be the perfect place to visit, or even to live, full of welcoming people.

This book brings us back to the Pride, Oregon series that was how I first discovered this author. It is still one of my favorite series and this book brings back all the old characters as their children now take center stage in the stories. I absolutely love the town of Pride Oregon and truly wish it were a real town that I could visit or move to as well! The characters are well developed and bring depth to these entertaining stories. The plot of this one in particular brings a bit of mystery ...more

A sweet and fairly undemanding read set in a small town where everyone knows everyone else's business.

Unusually, the romance plot was very straightforward, with all of the drama - and wow was there lots and lots of drama - coming from a pseudo jeopardy sub plot. I must say that didn't really do much for me; I wasn't too interested in solving the whodunit and it didn't feel dark or threatening enough to keep me feeling edge of my seat nervous. By about the fourth time something happened it

An uncomplicated read, even with evil machinations in play, the story doesn’t have much depth to it. The characters fell flat for me, lacking the type of dimension that creates the necessary connection to form attachments and investments in the story’s outcome. Sadly I lost interest in the goings-on in Pride, OR as the story just didn’t pick up enough steam with any type of emotional dynamics to capture and keep my attention.

This ARC book was complimentary, provided by the Publisher and

This is a really sweet romance and is just perfect to curl up with for the evening. Sara and Parker meet when she is in charge of the family restaurant while her family is away on holiday he has been hired to remodel the restaurant even though they disagree with each other the attraction between them is there right from the start and as they get to know each other it keeps growing. This was a really good sweet read and I really liked it.

This is a contemporary romance with a little mystery thrown in. It is quick reading and leaves you with a good feeling. The characters are likable, even if Sara didn't like Parker to start with. Parker more than made up for it with his attraction to her. A little romance, a little mystery, family complications, a restaurant and a sexy hero. The romance was balanced with some good steamy scenes. It's a go for me!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley.

DNFing at 11% because who plans to take off for a month and have their restaurant remodeled while they're gone, but doesn't share any of that with the niece who will be running things until just days before they leave?

Not for me.

It was lovely to return to the town of Pride with new resident Parker Clark. He wanted and needed a fresh start. Why not Pride? It's a beautiful small town, where everyone knows one another, and the perfect place to start his construction company - it was needed here. His first big opportunity was to refurbish the town's restaurant The Golden Oar where he meets Sara, the niece of the owner Iian.

This is second generation Pride, we get to meet some of the children of the original characters, who

Great love story of family and determination. Parker and Sara’s relationship start off a little rocky, but his determination quickly improves their relationship. When he is hired to remodel her grandfathers business they are thrown together and the adventure begins. Jill brings suspense throughout the story and the reader can’t help but get involved. A really great read.

It was such a joy to return to Pride! This series never fails to offer an awesome small town romance with hot sexy characters. Sarah and Parker's story doesn't disappoint. Sarah is finally going to get a chance to run the family restaurant while her Uncle is traveling. Parker was hired to revamp the same restaurant. Their chemistry is crazy. But somebody is trying to mess things up, so Sarah and Parker work together to keep things on track. Like I said, Jill's Pride series never disappoints! ...more
