    Favorite Quotes:

    We went on a couple of dates years ago, but it ended up being just two old friends hanging out. Besides, it’s tough to feel romantic about a man who ate paste in kindergarten and who knows that you once considered getting a Justin Bieber tattoo.

    Love Walks In was a feel-good, heartwarming read chock full of memorable characters that I adored as well as a cast of ridiculously cute pets with the craziest personalities. A touching story that filled me with such joy, this series' first installment was both refreshing and a pure delight.

    Nina Lindsey's Love Walks In is a small town romance straight out of Hallmark. A big city real estate mogul meets the small town entrepreneur he's trying to buy out and an unexpected enemies to lovers romance ensues. This story was cute, a bit cliche, but smart and sweet and very enjoyable. I picked this book up as soon as I saw it was written under the pen name of one of my favorite indie authors. It's definitely a bit lighter and kitschier than her previous work but I'm telling you, if you're ...more

    Utterly delightful and full of the kind of charm that is addictive, Love Walks In is simply wonderful. Nina Lindsey writes from the heart as she tells the tale of Aria Prescott, her struggles to keep her cat cafe and the rest of her historic street intact, and the man whose world she turns upside down.

    Hunter Armstrong never expected to do anything more than come to Bliss Cove, convince the small town to embrace his company's development plans and then move on. But then Aria walks in

    Oh my gosh, I loved this book so much!

    When I read what this story was about it reminded me of a Hallmark Christmas movie and I’m obsessed with them so I just HAD to give it a try and oh my gosh, I’m so SO glad I did. It was everything I hoped for, in fact it was MORE than I hoped for. I’m in awe of this book and now I just want more.

    Aria and Hunter’s story was incredible and I’m so glad I had the honour of reading it.

    This book is one that hit all the points on the feel-good meter. This one will have a smile plastered on your face from start to finish.

    The characters in this book are what really brought things home for me. These characters really make the story what it is. I adored Aria's character. She is quirky and so full of heart. Hunter is a workaholic that didn't see her coming.

    Bliss Cove is book one in a new series from Nina Lindsey. I just love reading stories with cobblestone streets, lighthouses, cool breezes coming off the sea and communities of people who make you want to pack your bags and move there tomorrow. I really feel like this new series is going to be really good. Plus, I love this author’s work.

    This is one of the sweetest book I read this month. My very first book from the author. I become an instant fan.

    I enjoyed this book so very much. It is a funny read. I love the intimate scenes. You might need a cold shower. The community support is outstanding. The best lesson I learned is do not be afraid to fight for your own rights and be brave. You can find treasures when you look for it. I cannot wait to read for the next

    Love Walks In by Nina Lindsey is the first book in a new series Bliss Cove. I love nothing more than a good romance. Well, this book did it for me. It had interesting characters, a great story line and of course a HEA. Aria is one of three sisters and this book is her story. I loved her. She is funny, kind a quirky and all around nice person.

    This book was light and breezy, just like Bliss Cove, a small town in California. I’m a sucker for beach towns, it’s my dream to live 10 min away from the beach. So, the more I read about the town, the more I liked it, colorful, historical and charming.

    Hunter is a stiff and calculating human, the way he expresses himself denotes that. He has a job, and that job is to get the owners of a sector of Bliss Cove to sell their lan

    Aria Prescott is bound and determined to prove to her family that that her reputation isn't correct.

    LOVE WALKS IN is the perfect first book in a sweet yet sexy romantic series. Not only are you introduced to a quaint and inviting town, but you get to experience the budding relationship between Aria and Hunter. I love these two. Their chemistry is undeniable, and they genuinely prove that opposites attract. If you are looking for small-town antics, romance, and heart, this is the book for you. You will get all the feels, a little bit of humor, and possibly a hankering for a cookie. Move over Lu ...more

    This is the first book of Nina’s I’ve read, and now I’m wondering why it has taken me so long to read one of her books.

    Sometimes you just have to be at the right place and right time for your life to change. That is exactly what happened to Hunter. He had no idea that opening a window brought him sunshine in the form of a woman. He always had a plan and always stuck to it! He was on his way to the top and thought that is what he needed and wanted. But Aria and Porkchop put a wrench in his plans

The descriptive story had you feeling the small town vibes, where everyone knows each other, and you could hear the ocean sounds and feel the breezes coming off the water! Nina has a special knack for creating close knit communities where her hero’s & heroine’s meet and fall in love. Hunter & Aria appeared to be such total opposites, but sometimes you are more alike than you think. Although they instantly felt attracted to each other, I loved how they spe ...more

    This book has something more books should have CATS. Aria owns a cat cafe and I love this aspect, and that Aria meeting Hunter the first time is due to a cat. The book started out winning and never once disappointed. Aria living in a small town with her sister and mother there added so much to the charm of this book. Throw in several more cats AND fun townspeople and it gets even better.

    Hunter is trying to buy out the town and put in something "bigger"...too bad his heart beats again for Aria.

    This book had such an interesting summary, so points to that. I loved it.

    The personalities of the characters were relatable and boy could I feel their emotions all the way. Points to that too.

    The writing even in third view point was done well. Most authors really cannot pull it off without mixing up their time and who they were giving a voice to. So points to that.

    This sweet story was just what I needed. I loved Aria and Hunter. It started with a "You've Got Mail" vibe but quickly became its own. I loved Aria and Hunter's budding feelings and watching their relationship bloom. Their relationship felt natural and authentic and I loved that in the end they brought out the very best in each other. The conflict over to Mariposa Street renovations kept things interesting and was a great driving force for the story. The cats were sweet and slightly weird, but g ...more

    Love Walks In, is the first title in the Bliss Cove series, and the debut series of Nina Lindsey.

    If you enjoy a small town, enemies to lovers romance I recommend Love Walks In.

    Aria is a quirky, if somewhat flighty at times, she's also a fun and big hearted heroine. Determined and driven when it comes to anything she's passionate about.

    Hunter is a workaholic property developer who is determined to leave his past behind him.

    Love Walks In was such a great book! I loved that Aria, known for being a bit flighty in her family, comes home to work hard on her business (what a cool idea for a cafe w/the addition of a place for adoptable cats!) and show everyone she's dependable. Just when she's feeling settled, in walks Hunter.
    I loved watching these two circle each other while trying to deny their chemistry! They sucked me in! And I loved watching them both grow during the process!
