Britt Franks Red Hatter Book Blog
Divining Elise was such a unique blending of sweet romance with just a hint of the paranormal sprinkled throughout! I wasn’t sure what to really expect after reading the blurb, I just knew I was throughly intrigued and had to read this. I’m so glad I took that chance because I was completely hooked on this one! The deliciously swoony single parent romance captured my heart and the glimpses of ghosts and premonitions snagged me even deeper into Elise and Rob’s story.
There’s quite a lot going on

Elise is a unique kind of heroine for me. She's lovely, sweet, strong and resilient. She's moved herself and her little boy to Granite Lake for a better life, a more thriving life. She's the Mama Bear you hear about in jokes, or see mentioned in memes. She'll do what's necessary to protect her own, moving heaven and earth to ensure her family is safe and flourishing.

Rob isn't all that different, I don't think. He gave up corporate law to go into business with his brothers in Granite Lake and wou

Elise never thought she'd leave her family and home behind, but circumstances dictated otherwise. Elise's ex is up for parole and she doesn't want anything to do with him. When her best friend offers her a job to manage a bookstore in Granite Lake, she jumps at the opportunity to start over. Even though she's hopeful, Elise foresees trouble ahead.

Rob is tired of the grind of corporate law and the big city. He's ready to leave his job and join his brothers in their newest endeavor--making craft b

A romance with many twists and turns! Elise and Rob are both in complicated situations...and yet drawn to one another. Elise is a psychic and mother of a deaf child. Leaving her past behind to start anew in Granite Lake, she meets Rob in an unexpected manner. And it something she knew ahead of time? Being psychic isn’t all sunshine and roses though, and Elise is wary of trusting what she has seen in her dreams.

I Love books like this one. Elise is a mother to a deaf child and she is a psychic. She's leaving everything behind to start over in Granite Lake. She then meets Rob in a bit of a unconventional way.

A great addition to the Granite Lake series with Rob Everett as the Everett brothers build their Black Bear Brewing in town. The story has soo many great layers to it, a surprise baby, a single mom, strong loving support in the Everett family and a crazy best friend, with second chances for both Rob Everett and Elise Martinez.

Elise is a single mom, fleeing Arizona from an abusive ex. Leaving everything she knows to move her son Colton somewhere safe, her best friend has set her up as the manager

Elise moves to Granite Lake with her son, Colton, to start a new life, leaving the problems of their past behind.
Rob is also moving to Granite Lake to open a brewery with his brothers, but before the move he got unexpected news and ended up with a baby in his arms.
The first meeting between Elise and Rob is not one of the best, but from there they build a friendship and, although the attraction between them is huge, they are both a bit afraid to take the next step in their relationship.

Another great book by Jody Kessler! I am loving the Granite Lake Series. Rob and Elise were such realistic characters and Colton and Maisie were so adorable. Plus, I loved the fact that Elise’s friend, Autumn, is a romance writer. She was a quirky character and I hope she gets her own book.
Rob is Brodie’s brother, who was one of the main characters in “Unwrapping Treasure” and “Chasing Treasure,” Book 1 and 2 of the series. Shane is the third brother and I’m expecting his story is coming soon. R

Elise was running to a new adventure, leaving the chaos that surrounded her behind. She was focusing on her new business and not looking for love, but isn't that what they all say when it smacks them upside the head. He had enough on his hands with a new baby and starting up the brewery, the last thing he needs is the complications that come with Elise. This author gives us a great story of being blindsided by love but not only that, healing so that love can be accepted and returned. They have b ...more

This is a fantastic read about Elise Martinez, a single mom to a deaf son, and Rob Everett, a lawyer that quits his practice to open Black Bear Brewing with his brothers. Before Rob moves to Granite Lake, he learns he’s a father. These characters are all well written and lovable. I love the chemistry between Elise and Rob. The interactions between Colton, Elise’s son, and Rob and his brothers is amazing. I’m not going to leave any spoilers because I really want everyone to read this page turner.

This is a new author to me, but my word, I will certainly be looking out for her in the future, and 1-clicking her work. Elise is a single mom to a deaf son, and Rob is a lawyer who leaves his practise in order to open a brewery with his brothers. The chemistry between these two is explosive. No spoilers though; this is a definite must read page turner, you will not be disappointed. This is a well written flawless story, which is emotional, steamy, and with twists and humour, which all had me en ...more

Rob at times needs to keep himself in check, "Elise’s gaze traveled over his body so quickly he almost missed it. There was a knowing gleam in her eyes, then she dropped those lashes so he couldn’t read her. It was probably for the best since he didn’t need a hard-on in front of her kid." Rob is just a playful man at times, “are you also demanding my body in this agreement?” Rob asked, and lowered his face so his lips hovered just in front of hers." I really liked this book, Parker was a good ma ...more

I received an advanced copy and this is my honest review. What a story. Right from the start you have a vagrant telling Rob that a beautiful girl awaits him, then he meets his daughter. Then you have Elise moving into Granite Lake to run the bookstore. Then you have a ghost with a mystery happening. Oh My! I liked the line Rob used when he was reading a book that Elise brought him: He was instantly sucked into the story. That sums its up, you get instantly sucked into the story. Would recommend ...more

I enjoyed this story that had a nice sprinkling of paranormal activity to spice up this romance. Both characters were likable, though Elise was a bit standoffish due to her history. The plot moved along nicely, with a little bit of drama, but nothing over the top. The descriptions of the beer recipes made me want to go buy a fictional brewery's beer, they sounded that delicious. Overall, an enjoyable story. * I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntary and honest review.

Can Love Overcome Stubbornness?

Elise and Rob are two super stubborn characters. Both are starting a new life in a Granite Falls, California, but for two completely different reasons. Being single parents just adds to their daily drama. Throw in a ghost, mind-blowing sex, and a crazy ex and this story has it all. HEA and No Cliffhanger! I loved these characters!
