Sissy's Romance Book Review
Love and Landscape by Lacey Black is book Three in the Rockland Falls Series. This is the story of Kathryn Elliott and Jensen Grayson. I have read the previous books, which added to my enjoyment of this one, but I did feel you could make it a standalone book if you wish to do so. Jensen has broken up with his son's mother who is a good person. So he is trying to keep his Landscaping business going along with helping to keep his son Max happy and healthy. Kathryn is the girl that got away but is ...more

Let me start by saying I wish I could give this book more than five stars. I love that this was a second-chance at love story for high school sweethearts that were torn apart in the middle of the night when Kate's family moved to New York with out a word to anyone, but, what I loved more is that each of the relationships felt real to me. I know moving on isn't easy and there is usually a lot of bitter

Love and Landscape is the third book in Lacey Black’s Rockland Falls series, a spin-off of her Summer Sisters series, but you don’t have to read that series to enjoy this one. This book is a second-chance romance between first loves, Jensen Grayson, owner of a successful landscape business, and Kathryn Elliott, the girl who broke his heart with no explanation. This couple had a history going back to high school that was cut short by Kathryn’s unexplained, middle-of-the-night departure

This was the first book I’ve read by Lacey and I will definitely be reading the rest of the books in this series. I totally fell head over heels for this sassy and fun family. And let me tell you right now that “Just Max” will absolutely steal your heart.

Jensen is trying to navigate his life, after a divorce and trying to juggle his 4-year-old son with his landscaping business. He’s worked hard to get his business up and running, and he’s really proud of his accomplishments but he spending time

Skimmed to maybe 50%

This was a snooze fest. Hero is weak (lets his ex wife run all over him) heroine is an emotional weak mess. Don’t know which one I despise more. Probably the heroine. I hate a weak female lead.

The couple separated when they were 18 because people in relationships don’t know how to communicate apparently. Of course the hero decides to date and marry a woman that was a bitch to the heroine. This happens often and when it does a book is already doomed to a one star for me, espe

I quite enjoyed reading this book. It took some time for me to really get into it but once I did I was hooked.

For Kate and Jensen to find each other again after all those years and to fall back into love just made me heart so happy. With Jensen being a single father committed to work and his son and Kate starting over from a divorce and the loss of a parent, these two definitely needed each other. Fate and time brought them back together and they didn’t waste any time picking up wh

Oh my God what a book! This pulled at my heart strings in the best possible way!

I don't know how Lacy Black does it one minute I am reaching for my tissues as I silently cry with the emotion that surrounds Kathryn and Jensens love story then next I can't catch my breath as this beautiful story unfolds.

I didn't think anything could beat Megan and Nick's story 'My Kinda Forever' (Book 6 in the Summer Sisters series - this is the spin of from that series) but I think this book just might!

Love & Landscape is the third book in the Rockland Falls series from Lacey Black and it's a WINNER!!! I loved every single thing about Jensen and Kathryn's second shot at love! It's CHOCK FULL of allllll the feels that I've come to expect from Ms. Black (and a visit from those hilariously inappropriate grandparents from the Summer Sisters series, Emma and Orval, that brought the tears of laughter...AND some "I can't believe Emma just said that!" moments) I simply can't get enough of this series ...more

Lacey Black's Rockland Fall's series is so freaking good! It has a nice tough of sweet and innocent, but with a dash of dirty in it! Basically, there is something for everyone with this book!

Kathryn and Jensen grew up together and fell in love, at least, until one night where Kathryn was wisked away by her mother and never to see Jensen again.

When Jensen gets the new job at the home that holds all the memories and pain of his youth, he knows he must push through and get the job done. In walks the owner of that home and the only woman he ever loved. When their past collides with their present will it destroy their future? Oh wow! What can I say about this book first off... loved "just Max" Max totally captivated me. Kate and Jensen are just so perfect for each other.

I love my trips back to Rockland Falls. Like seriously. The place, the people, and my favorite family! And Jensen, Kathryn, and Max’s story is no different. I was hooked from the beginning and just needed to know what happened! Not to mention appearances by our other favorite characters, two in particular. But I just, I love so much being able to visit with one of my favorite families while also getting new stories! Love it!!!

Love and Landscape is the 3rd book in the Rockland Falls series and can be read as a standalone. However, you will want to read all the books in this series, because its just that darn good and the characters appear in all the books.

If you are a fan of second chances, single dad books, or small-town romances then Love and Landscape is right up your alley!

Jensen Grayson and Kathryn Elliott were torn apart years ago with Kathryn’s sudden abrupt departure from Rockland Falls. Now years later Jensen

I’m now 3 books into this series and I hope it never ends! Love & Landscapes is the story of Kathryn and Jensen. Old high school sweethearts who must figure out their rocky past before they can move forward. Jensen and Kathryn quickly find that the chemistry they had is still there, but what they must figure out now is how to work through their past and deal with Jensens ex wife, which all made for some rocky situations.

A second chance romance that will give you all the feels. There is a lot of hurt between Kathryn and Jensen. High school sweethearts until Kathryn disappeared in the middle of the night without a word.

Twelve years later and she is back in Rockland Falls but now Jensen is a single father to a little boy.

Kathryn didn’t expect that Jensen would be her landscape designer after all this time but the chemistry is still very much alive despite all the hurt. The two have a lot of stuff to navigate inc

Not only a second chance, but a single parent too..everything I love all rolled into one.
Jensen and Kathryn have a past, one that left a bitter taste in Jensen's mouth as Kathryn left without a word.
Now Kathryn is back and the attraction is still there..but Jensen has an ex and a son,and Kathryn has to explain what happened years ago..
Can these two finally have a happily ever after?!
This story was very emotional but also sweet and tender.

Love is never lost

Third book in the series and I enjoyed it so much. This is Jensens story of lost and found love. Kate was a fantastic character and I loved that she just took it all in her stride. A story of lost and 're found love with plenty of HEA and a little bit of Emma and Orville thrown in five stars

Love and Landscape is the third book in the Rockland Falls series by the very talented, Lacey Black. It can be read as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series since it’s amazing! Two of the Grayson sisters have found love and now it’s the brothers’ turn. Jensen is up single dad alert!

Love and Landscape was a second chance at love story that I really LOVED! I wasn't completely sure what to expect, because second chance love stories for me, can tend to be too frustrating, to where I don't even want the MC's together by the end. However, Lacey Black penned one that I couldn't get enough of, really had me engaged, and that I didn't want it to end. This is the story of Jensen Grayson & Kathryn Elliot, two people who loved each other insanely, and believed they would be together f ...more

So I have to be completely honest here… I was not excited about this book, at least not as much as the other Lacey Black books, for some reason I wasn’t super excited about Jensen and I’m just not usually a second chance romance lover but let me tell you I LOVED this book start to finish and that really took me by surprise in the absolute best way.

Love and Landscape is the third book in the Rockland Falls Series and as mentioned above it’s Jensen’s turn for love, he has the sweetest little boy

Laughter, shock, a lot of smiles, and more laughter. That is what Love and Landscape gave me. I laughed more than anything through this heartwarming love story between two high school sweethearts. Jenson and Kate were two young kids in love until something or more like someone took Kate away in the middle of the night with no explanation. For over a decade Kate blamed the one person, she thought was the best father in the world.

Love and Landscape is the third book in the Rockland Falls series by the fabulous and talented Lacey Black. I am loving this family, their town and the people they love. Lacey writes small town romance so perfectly! We've met Jensen in his sisters' stories and now it's his turn. He's a single father, running his own business and enjoying his life. Mostly. He has a new landscaping job at the house he hasn't been to in years. His Kate. His only love. The one who got away. Literally. When they were ...more
Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading
Love and Landscapes was a fabulous second chance romance.

Highschool sweethearts and lovers, Jensen and Kate knew they were meant to be together forever. But, when Kate’s family packs up and moves to a different state in the middle of the night giving her no chance to say goodbye, their romance is ripped apart and both are left broken hearted and forced to move forward alone.

Both find new love that end in divorce. Jensen is left with the best thing that has ever happened to him, his four year ol

I always get so excited when Lacey Black has a new release coming out, but I get extra excited when I know we are going to see previous characters from past books. I was not really sure what we was going to get with Jensen's book, but as usual I am not surprised with the outcome. Jensen and Katherine's book was so sweet and cute. Throw in a curious 4 year old, and it is that much better. Their story was light, and it showcased in the true sense of the word what a soul mate truly is. The chemistr ...more

Someone's taking it over and having it redone, he's got so many memories here, he will do right by this design for sure.

Love and Landscapes is the third title in the Rockland Falls series. I've thoroughly enjoyed each addition to this series, and Love and Landscapes was no exception. It was kind of weird to read a book about a character with the same name as myself as I've never come across the exact same spelling.

Jensen and Kathryn's story is an emotional and heartwarming second chance romance. High school sweethearts torn apart as teens and miscommunications, pain, secrets and misunderstandings kept

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little "spice" or hot guys in uniform pants, and I'm a happy woman. There's just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.
