Good story. Entertaining and endearing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summer is a perfect time to snuggle up in the air conditioning with a lovely romance that will warm your heart. Set in Honeymoon Harbor, a small town with a big heart, this one is a great choice.

Written in a women's fiction manner, this book is a sweet story that is both entertaining and very endearing. I love the character pairing and development. These two just felt right together.

Gabe is a driven man that realizes he has to

I really enjoyed Summer on Mirror Lake by Joann Ross . It had a little bit of everything. I loved the romance between Gabe and Chelsea. NYC bad boy meets innocent librarian. There were a couple 🔥🔥 scenes, but also a nice slow development of their relationship. I also thought the story of the two abandoned foster children was well written and added a lot to the story. And of course I loved the cast of characters and the development of the town of Honeymoon Harbor. I definitely need to go back and ...more

Summer on Mirror Lake is the third book in the Honeymoon Harbor series. This is Gabe and Chelsea's story. Gabe has returned home for a summer off from his high profile Wall Street job. Chelsea is the town librarian who is more than willing to help him relax over the summer. For the most part, I enjoyed the book. It held up well as a stand alone. I felt like there was a good connection between Gabe and Chelsea and did find myself rooting for them. But more than the romance, I loved the couple's r ...more

This was so cute! I loved the kids and main characters / romance. I feel like it got very repetitive toward the middle and end though - too many of the same conversations and situations. The ending was also abrupt but that could’ve just been because I thought it would be longer (there was a novella in the back). I love this town so much.

This was the first of this series ive read. I enjoyed it but it was way too long. The characters talked too much and it didn't seem authentic. I liked the depiction of small town life. The ending was very abrupt. Adding the instant family into the mix was a bit over the top because I feel like we never even got to know the hero and heroine as a couple

Originally published at Reading Reality

When is a fling not a fling? Possibly when it comes with two children and a boat. But definitely when it begins with thinking you’re having a heart attack. While serving as a pallbearer at the funeral of someone you looked upon as a mentor.

For Gabe Mannion, wanting to be just like his mentor Carter Kensington has taken on a whole new meaning. The man is dead at 46, his heart a victim of the adrenaline rush that is high-level high-stakes trading on Wall Stre

I have been reading enjoying the Honeymoon Harbor series by JoAnn Ross. So far I've found it to be wonderfully written with characters that I've really enjoyed spending time with. A plus in any book I read.

In Summer on Mirror Lake, we have Gabe and Chelsea. These two for me are a complete opposite. They both lead very different lifestyles. Ones main goal is to make money, the other is to make sure people realize wh

If you want a summer read with depth and heart, JoAnn Ross’s Summer on Mirror Lake is it. Set in the charming Pacific Northwest village of Honeymoon Harbor (one of those towns that doesn’t really exist, but you totally wish did), this is a charming romance with a dash of social justice thrown in.

Main Characters Chelsea the librarian and Gabe the Wall Street mogul-turned-recreational-shipwright who works too hard come together in the way of all summer romances, when the former asks the latter to

The blurb says this Honeymoon Harbor book is perfect summer reading, and I can’t disagree. If you enjoy romance, this small-town trip is worth taking in the next few months.

Gabriel Mannion lives a fast-paced, high-stress life and finds himself in need of a break. When he heads to his hometown for the summer, he begins to see the perks of a slower lifestyle—especially with librarian Chelsea Prescott and her two foster children in the picture. As the end of summer draws near, it’s a classic cho

I was sent a copy of Summer on Mirror Lake as part of an Instagram/Review Tour. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.

Summer on Mirror Lake is the third book in the Honeymoon Harbor series. I was lucky enough to read the second book in the series so I was interested in reading this as well to see if the story followed the same characters or not. I ended up loving this one so much more tha

Summer on Mirror Lake is a thoroughly enjoyable novel involving the many changes and chances taken in the life of a man on a much needed break from his life.

Chelsea Prescott, the local librarian, piques his interest when she approaches him about the summer reading program and about showing kids his Viking boat a

This was such a fun story! I loved the characters and enjoyed the story line. I thought it was well written and I loved the setting. Though I must admit I live in a small town on the Olympic Peninsula and although I’m pretty sure its not actually based on Gig Harbor (Where I live) it was close enough to have fun comparing! I also loved all the Pacific Northwest mentions, which served to endear the book to me even more! Overall I had a great time reading this and am looking forward to the next on ...more

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my fair and honest review.

I really enjoyed this story from JoAnn Ross, this book is part the the Honeymoon Harbor series. I loved Chelsea and Gabes story. What a emotional journey this was, up and downs. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
