The Inn at Laurel Creek From the best selling author of the Angela Panther series comes the contemporary romance novella The Inn At Laurel Creek Do You Believe in Love at First Sight Frustrated and hurt by the news of her ex
Love at first sight novels are a hard thing to sell me on And honestly for the first half of this novella I just wasn t buying it I m glad I stuck with it because by the time I hit the mid way point of this story I was sold and rooting for Carly and Ben.I loved the setting for this book The Bed and Breakfast owners Stan and Lou were a hoot I totally think the author should write novellas set at this magical retreat Georgia This is an 85 page novella but I felt the story was told well and I was [...]
Carolyn Ridder Aspension certainly has a way with the English language One of my favorite lines from the book is My relationship dropped further into the toilet and shortly thereafter, Matthew gripped the handle hard flushing it down into the bowels of relationship sewage This novella oozes southern charm and hospitality If this inn really exists I need a week there The author does a fantastic job of building up the story from page one You will not be disappointed You may even need a cold glass [...]
Very cute, sweet story Even though this is a novella the characters are really well developed and I found myself completely engaged.
I wanted to like it I really did Too much innuendo, too much language and not enough romance beyond the physical chemistry.Content mild language, implied intimacy
A sweet book with a fair amount of humor in it Likeable characters, from the innkeepers to the main couple Setting was nicely described I do feel the Southern dialogue was overdone and a bit cheesy, but it didn t detract from my reading too much Storyline was predictable, but since the story itself wasn t all that long, I read to the end It dropped off a bit there I wanted to know how the friends reacted to Ben s revelation.Overall, very clean No Cursing Sexual inneundo, but not steamy and witho [...]
This is a great book It is a novella, however, even though it is a shorter book, I feel like this is a complete story I was able to read it in one sitting, and loved everything about this book Carly is upset that her ex is getting married, so she leaves town and escapes to a small bed and breakfast When she meets the owners they tell her that bed and breakfast is a place where miracles happen While enjoying the sunshine Carly meets musician Ben, they are instantly attracted to each other, even t [...]

His touch caused the butterflies sleeping in my stomach to wake up and dance I desperately wanted to let them free was only one of the phrases in this delightful novella that caught my eye A synopsis of the story I will not give you since that is already there when you read the blurb provided for the book as well as in other reviews that are posted What I will tell you is that even though this book may have elements found in other short contemporary romances it also has great dialogue, chemistry [...]

Is it possible to smile the whole time while reading a story That s what happened with me on this one I loved this short story from page 1 The characters were relatable, sweet funny The Inn is somewhere I d love to go to relax, get away find myself again And for the author saying she doesn t normally write romance storiesI thought this was beautiful touching and she definitely needs to keep writing in this genre, as she hit it out of the park Definitely INN love with this novella
The Inn at Laurel Creek is a great feel good romance Aspenson is a favorite author of mine, and she doesn t disappoint with this novella I loved the twist that she put in it, and the banter between the characters was smart and fun as usual Ben was a truly believable leading man and was my favorite character I d love to read about Carly and Ben hoping there s to come I would highly recommend this novella for a quick romantic read.
Carly doesn t believe in love at first sight and she doesn t understand how her ex could leave her and immediately fall in love and schedule his wedding to someone else She decides to get away from the reminders of her exes wedding day so she chooses to get away to a bed and breakfast The unusual owners of the inn are charming and fun and Carly soon learns that love at first sight is not a myth when she meets Ben.
I was surprised to see a romance novella from Carolyn Ridder Aspenson, but just like her Angela Panther books, her main character, Carly, is completely human and self deprecatingly funny The setting, a gorgeous bed and breakfast in Georgia, sounds so appealing, as does Ben, the love interest It made me want to believe in love at first sight
Wonderful storyWow I have found another wonderful author I really enjoy this exquisite story It had wonderful characters and I read in one sitting I could not put down Read late into the night.
fun and flirtyThis is a fun, contemporary novella The Inn is a beautiful, peaceful place to get away from it all The girl with the broken heart and the pop star meet.
Goodthis short story is about how one woman went to an Inn to forget about a relationship that ways ended by her useless boy friend.
Nice innocent love storyThis story is a very sweet love story You can get to know the characters and enjoy their chemistry It flows quickly and is a quick read.
