The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

My Review

I have always been a big fan of Melissa Foster so I was elated when I was given the opportunity to participate and review one of her books! She does not disappoint and I think they just keep getting better. I am most impressed by the way she portrays each of the characters. She has this way of making you want to jump into the book and become a part of the story. 

I was very excited to hear about the addition of the Seaside Summers series beginning with Seaside Dreams. This book starts out the series with the cast of friends introduced in book 5 of The Remingtons. They are a close knit group and you really wish you could join them by the fire and just be a part of them. We start out meeting Bella and Caden. Bella is the mischievous one out of all the girls. We find her at the beginning of the story dedicated to starting and building up her summer project which she hopes will develop into a full time position. She is not looking for a man, let alone any kind of relationship. 

Well......when you least expect it guess who shows up but the newest member of the local law enforcement. Yes, I mean Caden Grant. Our most yummy man in uniform and father to a teenage son. Caden was looking for a safer environment for him and his son after a tragic loss. What better place in the world than Wellfleet, Mass.? I found myself more than once rooting for this relationship. 

All in all I can say that I was so pleased when I found out about the newest series and can't wait to read about the rest of this group of friends. They are such a good fit and care about each other so much. As I was sitting reading this book it just felt like being surrounded by a warm blanket on a wintry cold night. I hope that everyone will start one-clicking this book as soon as they can and I would love to hear your opinion!
