As the youngest mayor Trillium Bay has ever elected, Brooke Callaghan wants to prove she’s up to the challenge. She’s stepping out of her practical teacher flats and into her sister’s treacherously high heels…with disastrous results. But if she’s going to (literally) stumble her first day on the job, why not fall into the arms of a handsome stranger?

My Kind of Forever is wonderfully romantic, heartwarming, book, filled with charm and humor! As always when I read one of the author’s books, I find myself chuckling throughout, and sighing as well! There is a bit of a mystery in this book, exposing long-held secrets! The characters and dialogue are impeccable; aside from the delightful main characters, the rest of the inhabitants bring their own quirky and fun personalities to the story.

MY KIND OF FOREVER (Trillium Bay #2) by Tracy Brogan is a charming contemporary romance. This cozy romance has an adult romance with no explicit sex, an endearing and funny heroine, a handsome newcomer, a quirky island population and a side mystery to be solved. This is the second book in this series, but it can be easily read as a standalone.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via Netgalley

So this is not a first book from Tracy Brogan, I've read some before, but this one I didn't like.
This is a chick lit. Only kissing scenes.
This story is so much slow paced, finally I was in need of some songs from Iron Madden, beautiful voice of Bruce Springsteen didn't help me to get through this book!!

This is proper Contemporary Romance.
It's heartwarming and enjoyable.

This is the second book in the Trillium Bay series. When I received an offer from the publisher to read and review, via Net-Galley, I eagerly accepted. My opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way.

This book has a great deal to offer. he small—town aspect is well done. Ms. Brogan’s writing is clean and flows well. The characters are engaging, including the secondary characters. The plot is unique, and there are a lot of delightfully humorous moments.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the second book in the series, and as I adored the first book, I had no hesitation in requesting this one! I think that the just-off-the-mainland Island romance novel lends itself to some wonderful characterisations, and this series is no exception. The pace is also slow, sweet and drama can be magnified.

Brooke is, let's be honest, a bit of a mess. She has become mayor and has to adjust to the role, just as she
A cute small town romance with loveable characters. It's a good read for an easy day. Romance readers will enjoy this one.

Oh, what can I say. I love these books . I love everything Tracy Brogan writes. My only complaint is I’ve read them all. She’s one of my favorite writers of romance novels.

A good story with an island full of quirky characters. I especially loved Gigi. Brooke is the newly elected mayor and the old mayor stepped down instead of waiting. Now she is in charge before she is quite ready. On her way to her first town council, she loses a shoe and meets a great looking guy. When she next encounters him, he is the new bartender. He is only on the island temporarily, but she can't help but wish he would be permanent. Leo takes the job as a bartender to get information, but ...more

Who is Leo and why is he on Wenniway Island? And what's this about a jewel thief? Brooke is the newly elected mayor and she's got a big job modernizing things. She's also got a history of bad relationships. You know, don't you, that when she meets Leo cute that things are going to heat up (not a lot but enough to keep you reading). Will there be a HEA? My one quibble with this was Brooke's negativity about herself; she's 36 and she won an election so she should push back her shoulders and buy he ...more

Brooke Callaghan, the new mayor of trillium bay is aiming to bring changes on the Island and in people's mind. She doesn't have time for distractions, especially if the distraction is a sexy bartender. Leo Walker is new on Island and is looking for peace and quite to write a book. They have an undeniable chemistry which Brooke is trying to deny with all her might. No one is listening to her ideas at the council meeting. She is envious of her sister and her perfect love life.

The delightful second installment in the author’s Trillium Bay saga…

Tracy Brogan’s My Kind of Forever is the delightful second installment in her Trillium Bay saga set in the small town of Trillium Bay located on Wenniway Island off the coast of Michigan. The island is famous for its fudge and has one grand hotel called the Imperial Hotel. Automobiles aren’t allowed on the island. It’s a tourist’s mecca during the summer, but in the wintertime, the residents, who mostly sport old Irish roots, ta

I had the privilege of reading an ARC of the second book in the Trillium Bay series. Tracy Brogan takes us back to Wenniway Island and the Callahan family. This is Brooke’s story. As the oldest of three, Brooke has always felt responsible for her sisters and the family since her mother died when she was fourteen. Brooke is taking over as mayor of Wenniway Island at the end of the Blackwell dynasty of mayors after being one of three teachers on the island for 12 years . As she faces the challenge ...more

Juggling her new job as mayor, the town gossips, her sisters and grandma's love life, and being thirty-six and single is more than what a girl can stand. Brooke is at the crossroads where the decisions she makes now will define the rest of her life.

This book is both endearing and full of all those quirky characters that make life fun. This island is a world upon itself. Traversing the complications that come with knowing everyone's business, and having your own business exposed, makes for a wond

I love returning to Trillium Bay and this was no exception. Brooke is the new mayor and has a lot to prove to this little quaint town. Leo has arrived in town temporarily under false pretenses but can not deny the chemistry between him and Brooke. The only problem is Leo does not do forever. Soon long held secrets come out in regards to a jewel thief living on their small island, that Brooke deals with the help of postmaster, Shari. Now the reason of Leo on the island, comes out and will Brooke ...more

This is the first Tracy Brogan book I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The residents of Trillium Bay are quirky, funny and very hilarious. Leo and Brooke were clearly meant to be together even if huge obstacles were conspiring to keep them apart. I'd totally recommend this book to all romance readers as it was a beautiful read.

My Kind of Forever is a sweet read that has plenty of humor from the towns people of Wenniway Island and a little bit of mystery! Can we please get the younger sister's story next? There's so much there, and I"m dying to know if her current relationship will work or not!

Brooke just can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to life and love. Leo has arrived in Trillium Bay during the off season but is really on the up-and-up? There’s a rumor going around town about a jewel thief being on the island- but how does Leo fit in this equation.

A cute story about a school teacher that becomes the youngest mayor in her small island town. The cast of characters that surround her are hysterical. Falling in love while becoming mayor isn't easy. Add is some island lore and you have a very enjoyable book.

This is part of a series and it is actually the third one, when I agreed to read this I did not know that but I didn't feel lost.

She has been made mayor and she really has her work cut out for her trying to bring this town up to date or in this century.

In true Brogan fashion, I laughed (out loud), cried and went through the whole emotional gamut I was not disappointed with this latest installment of the Trillium Bay series.

If you like quirky, small-town romances, you’ll really enjoy this novel about a fictional Northern Michigan island community. Think of Mackinaw Island with a slightly bigger population, but the same laws banning cars. The place is just full of oddball characters and sort-of presiding over the craziness is newly elected mayor, Brooke Callaghan. Brooke is single, not because she wants to be but because there is a very small dating pool in this small community. But there is a new hunky, handsome, a ...more

I'm a huge fan of Tracy Brogan's books unfortunately this one not so much. It's a sweet chick lit story that is just a little too cute and silly for my taste. Of course the writing is exceptional with well developed characters but I found the pace of the story slow with several parts too drawn out. Overall not a bad book but not one I really enjoyed.

This is a sweet story about Brooke Callaghan, a teacher and lifelong resident of Trillium Bay, who now finds herself as the new mayor; and Leo Walker, a new to town bartender/writer, who has certainly caught Brooke's eye. Sparks fly when these two meet but Leo is not permanent and Brooke doesn't really want a quick fling. Can she let herself have what she wants despite the end date she knows they have?
When it turns out Leo may have been less than honest about his reasons for being there, Brooke

This is the second book in the Trillium Bay series but can be read as a standalone. Brooke Callahan is the new mayor of Trillium Bay and determined to make positive changes. Leo is a new transplant to the small town but he is waiting on a few job offers elsewhere so his time in Trillium Bay is short. Because of this Brooke is hesitant to start anything with him despite their chemistry. Can they make a fling work or will someone get hurt?

This was my fist by this author. I really enjoyed it! It seemed to have a little bit of everything. The story was funny, romantic, and sexy with some mystery, danger and quirky characters thrown in for good measure.
Ms. Brogan had me from the very beginning when Brooke, who was wearing her sister's clothes and shoes to her first meeting as mayor, manages to flip her high heel into a pile of horse manure. The hero, sexy Leo comes up behind her and says something like, "Need some help, Cinderella?

My Kind of Forever is a heartwarming, romantic, book, filled with so much charm and just the right touch of humor. I found myself not sure whether I wanted to chuckle or sigh throughout the book. There was just so much to feel good about. There is a perfect balance of secrets that will be exposed and sweetness that doesn't leave you feeling like the story is too sweet.

The characters are so perfectly written that you'll feel like you know them, it's not just the main characters but also the side

It's been awhile since a book made my heart swoon. That good 'ole, get caught up in a book and the characters feelings to where you feel genuine they were your friend. That's what this book did for me. From how utterly relatable Brooke was, to how genuine in her feelings for everyone were, just hit me with all the feels. A book worth picking up <3

Thank you Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
