Every part of her felt warm and glowing. She’d thought the light inside her had gone out long ago. How crazy and wonderful that he had made it burn so brightly—a captivating stranger she would never see again.

I have such a good feeling about the ”Bliss Cove” series, after having finished the first installment. Nina Lindsey is an author I have loved for quite a while now. It’s her new pen name. To be honest, I’m not sure why she chose to go b

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.

Ominous music filtered through the uplifting movie trailer in her head.

My Review:

This was a slowly developing yet thoughtfully written and relatable story that could easily happen in any small-town. The book was the first of a series and w

4.5 heart swelling stars!!

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 creative imagination brought to life the enchantingly quaint small sea-side town of Bliss Cove. And it's the perfect romantic setting for Aria Prescott and Hunter
Jessica  (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
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 and the man

Romance, saving a neighbourhood and family. A lovely book. Aria and Hunter are flawed and wonderful characters. Their relationship is both romantic and spicy. A little bit predictable but still a fun read.

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.

A cute and feel-good small town romance. I loved that Aria was a cat cafe owner. Enjoyed the story!!!

Being a completely unplanned read for me, this surprised me with its perfect blend of sweet and heat. Beginning as a hilarious, unexpected cat chase during a thunderstorm, Aria and Hunter share an immediate banter filled with sexual attraction.

Unknown to Aria, owner of the local cat café, Hunter is responsible for convincing the residents of Mariposa Street to sell their business to Imperial Properties, potentially landing him the CEO position. As the two compete for a majority vote from the lo

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.

The youngest daughter in the Prescott family has lived her life starting new things and visiting new places on the whim. But now she’s back in Bliss Cove starti

Note: An ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

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.

The romance however was too quick for my like. Already they

Loyalty and friendship is even better than becoming a CEO

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 book. I wis

A Heart Warming Romance

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. Hunter grew up in a totally different world. He is a work alcoholic, no real friends or family. Opposites do attract! I loved this c

I never read this author before but the blurb caught my eye..and I am so glad I read this story!
I love small towns, there's nothing like it, the community and sense of belonging, and that's what Aria is looking for when she goes back..but suddenly everything she is working for is threaten by a huge corporation, Hunter leading.
These two have serious chemistry, yet there's both their futures on the line..
I found the story very quirky, sweet, with great characters and I enjoyed it a lot.

This was such a sweet read. Small town meets Big city.
A little bit of suspense a lot of feels and a bundle of romance all come together to create the purrfect storm.

Hunter is the businessman determined to stay on top. Cold and calculating. Ruthless. Always above (yes even physically) the noise and commotion of common folk. Until he ends up in a small town B&B, on the ground floor.
There is a storm brewing outside his window, one that might well change the direction of his life.

Aria is the dream
Unfortunately this was one of those it's not you, it's me situations.

Cute, sweet story, but I just wasn't able to connect.


In case you didn't know (it's not a secret), Nina Lindsey is a pseudonym for Nina Lane. Her writing is amazing as always, just less explicit than her usual.

If you haven't read her Spiral of Bliss series yet, you definitely should. Some of the best romance books out there.

Soooooooo sweet

My 1st book by Lindsey and I can't wait for next one as I just don't want to give up the enjoyment I experience reading her stories! Sweet romance .. Hallmark with a kick of sexy. Aria was a bit awkward but her champion of causes will endear you to her while Hunter will have you dreaming of meeting him at a small town hotel yourself.

The Butterfly Secret

Hunter is trying to sway votes towards his company's purchase of all the businesses on Mariposa Street.

Aria is against selling as she doesn't want to relocate her business or home.

The two hit it off on a personal level but when the "real" plans show up it looks as though they may lose each other ~

Small town romance are always a favorite. Though I’ve never read anything from Nina Lindsey, Aria and Hunter’s sweet story captured my heart. I look forward to more tales from Bliss Cove and spending more time with these characters.

Development of destruction?

Hunter comes to Bliss Cove to buy properties for a development. Aria has recently bought a building in a historic area and opened a business there. She does not want to sell. Can he won her over?
Totally 5 stars read...

Um, It was really a great thing to read, I read it in between about 2-3 hours.
I love how Hunter is, And mainly I adore fierce heroine.

A truly enjoyable read centering around Arie and her cat-filled life in her historic hometown. Her life is running her café/cat adoption business making lots of room for her friends and neighbors. She has recently returned after an absolutely horrible relationship and is much the better for making both moves. Enter Hunter who works for a property development company. He has been sent to gain approval from the town and purchase the necessary properties for a “renovation”. They meet one
