"Foster convincingly brings her characters to life against the idyllic backdrop of Kentucky farmland. This down-to-earth romance will especially appeal to animal lovers."—Publishers Weekly on The Somerset Girls
No one knows you quite like a sister...
Summer in Sunset, Kentucky, means long, hot days—and sometimes surprising new beginnings. Through it all, the ties of sisterhood will be there, guiding Autumn and Ember to the lives, and loves, they need...
When they're running the animal-rescue farm they inherited from their grandparents, Autumn and Ember Somerset are perfectly in sync. At all other times, not so much. Dependable Autumn would rather curl up with a good book than paint the town red with Ember. After the disaster that was Autumn's last relationship, it's pure self-protection. But when her high school crush comes back to town with his adorable young daughter, igniting memories best left forgotten, there's only one person Autumn can turn to...
Beneath Ember's free-spirited facade is a layer of deep hurt. She'll gladly nudge Autumn toward a second chance. But risk her own heart? Not likely. The closer Autumn gets to her own happily-ever-after, the more Ember wonders what she might be missing—and if it isn't her time to be bold, too.
Don't miss The Honeymoon Cottage, an all-new romantic family saga by Lori Foster where locals of a quirky small town help an on-the-shelf wedding planner find her own happily-ever-after.

Reseñas Varias sobre este libro

Lori Foster’s The Somerset Girls was a book I dearly needed and I didn’t even realize it. I needed to be transported into a lovely, small town where despite gossiping busy bodies, there is a real sense of community. I needed to watch two sisters grow in their love for one another while helping each other through life changes. I needed to watch those sisters realize that despite their parent’s faults they were loved deeply by them. I needed to see a single dad vow to transform his young daughter’s life into something magical. I needed to watch two different couples fall madly in love in two very different ways. The Somerset Girls is a feel good, relaxing, joyful, story that I found impossible to put down.

Autumn and Ember Somerset inherited their grandparent’s farm and despite busy careers, they’ve chosen to use that farm as an animal rescue. These women who are vastly different but each other’s fiercest protector work long hours and are happy to do it. While Ember has no problem enjoying an active social life, ever since Autumn’s wedding that never was she’s mostly closed herself off from the world. She doesn’t mind until Tash Ducker, the object of her teenage crush, returns to down with his seven year old daughter, Ruby.

While there were two romances going on throughout this book, Autumn and Tash and Ember and Mike (who works on their farm) this book has many layers and was really about relationships of all different kinds and I loved that about it. I also must mention Ruby who was precocious and precious and absolutely melted my heart on numerous occasions.

I don’t want to spoil the story because everyone should be able to experience it I did, completely immersed and living on that land as everything played out. Every conversation, every action, every little bit of this story was meaningful and perfectly written making the Somerset Girls is one of my favorite books of 2020.

Sisters Autumn and Ember Somerset are doing a wonderful job of continuing to run an animal-rescue farm their grandparents started. They will take in any animal, no matter to cost or expected difficulty. The sisters live in their grandparents home, redesigned and turned into a duplex. Their parents live on the property and the girls show loving attention to their needs. Autumn is a designer and Ember is a builder, and they love working with and protecting the animals and they have a full-time to handle things when they are doing other work.

When Tash Ducker asks the sisters to work on his house in order to provide things that will make his daughter feel happy and secure after the death of her mother, Autumn begins consulting him on the designs that will work for the both of them. Meanwhile, animals that need rescuing and care are also provided for by Autumn and Ember. When the design plans are complete, Ember will step in and begin the building phase for Tash and his daughter.

Tash is no stranger to either sister. As a matter of fact, he is the object of her teenage crush. Not only do Tash and Autumn soon realize that business and pleasure will soon mix, Ember is quickly on her own road to romance.

The Somerset Girls is a truly heartwarming story on several levels. Not only is the bond between sisters truly refreshing, the tender loving care they show their parents is remarkable. Also, Tash's daughter Sadie is a delight, and I loved her role in this book. Quite naturally, the romance that bloomed between Tash and Amber was wonderful. Then there was the secondary love story when it came to Ember that was enjoyable. Last, but not least, the animals. I loved each and every rescue as the animals showed up in the story. Lori Foster has hit another one out of the park. I can't wait to read her next book.

Autumn and Ember Somerset inherited their grandparents’ farm and transformed it not only into a home for themselves but also as a rescue for farm animals. Turkeys, cows, goats and pigs find themselves happy here. Can Autumn and Ember find theirs?

Foster shares two very different sisters, pigeonholed by their mother and the baggage that they carry.

Autumn loves her romance novels, but after her fiancé jilted her, she hasn’t thought about marriage or love. That all changes when Tash Ducker, the man she crushed on as a teenager moves back to town and Ember sets him up as a client for Autumn’s design business.

Ember has suffered tragedy, but carries a no-worries persona armor. However, Mike, the ranch hand who lives on premise and helps with their rescue get’s under her skin and makes her snarky. The outcome is delicious!

An adorable child, parents and an ex added to the story. The main romance belonged to Amber, and it delivered a slow-burn with plenty of swoons, laughter and heartfelt moments. The second romance surrounding Ember was equally entertaining, sizzling and delicious.

I loved the interactions with the animals and family members. I appreciated the matchmaking shenanigans and even laughed out loud. Foster had me grinning. I longed to wade in the cool lake waters and dreamed of living on a farm. This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer11 s Mary Jackson _TheMaryReader1,314 174

I loved this story if these two sisters. I connected with Autumn her love of reading and working on the farm. I wished she was my sister. Sadie was so cute. The two romances were icing on the cake for me. This was a great light summer read. I highly recommend it. 202010 s Macy1,518

I am not sure what everyone else read, but I read a very different book. I did not enjoy any of it. Okay, I loved the little girl and the animal rescue, but the rest... not at all. I even had to stop listening at times. I got to chapter 7 and wanted to throw my phone on the ground and stomp it into a million pieces. Most people in this book are not likable. Not even a little bit. Autumn is sweet and kind, but needs some self confidence and a backbone. She just sits back and lets life happen and cleans it all up for everyone to her own detriment. She just goes along with what everyone wants and takes it. I just couldn’t deal with her. Ember has been through some terrible things, but who hasn’t. Doesn’t explain why she has been manipulating her family for the entirety of her life, think she is adorable, that her looks and body can get her whatever she wants and treating her sister crap unless it it is self serving. She messes with Autumns life just for her own entertainment. When she wants more and it doesn’t immediately happen she again decides to use manipulation rather than have an actual conversation and then completely stick her nose into her sisters business rather than trying to be an adult. Reading about Ember makes me so happy I have a brother. The mother is certifiable and if she were my mother I’d have run away when I was a toddler. She created the way the sisters act, Honestly, I found her behavior emotionally abusive and a hideously craptastic mother. It was clear to any and everyone around who was her favorite and that Autumn didn’t see it was because she was so completely used to being treated a second class citizen. Big boned? Ugh. And don’t get me started on Tash. Grow a spine and a set. His only redeeming quality was his daughter. He didn’t deserve Autumn. And Mike, no. Just a big fat no. He and Tase deserved each other! So I did finish because I paid for the audio version and was hoping I would start to it, but it didn’t get any better in my opinion and I want my 10 hours back.7 s Amy ~ Love At 1st Read536 33

the rest of the world, coping through this pandemic can be a little overwhelming for me. I was in desperate need of a read to lift my spirits. Just a book that would make me feel a little better, a little happier, a little safer. Thanks to The Somerset Girls, I got my escape with this feel good read full of lush writing and a full and loveable cast of characters.
I fell in love with sisters Autumn and Ember. Who wouldn’t love girls that ran an animal rescue? While completely different personalities, their love for each other was evident and I found myself identifying with both of them. While Autumn was responsible, no frills, more reserved and insecure, Ember covered her vulnerability behind a fun loving, light hearted mask. Both sisters were strong, sweet, intuitive, and caring. And both deserved their happy ever after.
Tash had grown up in Sunset, Ky and had recently returned to raise his daughter and re-establish his life. She was his primary focus. He’d put women from his mind and was putting all his attention on his child. But he couldn’t ignore his reaction to Autumn. Mike had come to Sunset and the Fresh Start Farm in search of something new. A place where he could restart his life and decide what he wanted out of it. The more time he spent with Ember, the more he knew what that something was.
When both of these couples find each other, sparks fly and emotions are tumultuous. Their journey to love is intoxicatingly quirky, perfectly paced, and all around fun to read. While their attractions were instant, the building of their romances was slow, sweet, and sizzling.
I love romances that aren’t just about the relationship between the main characters but also the relationships between family and friends. The Somerset Girls is a heartwarming story about those sometimes complicated relationships. It’s filled with vivid characters in honest, believable relationships. Those kinds of connections where you may drive each other crazy but you’re still each other’s biggest supporter. It’s a humorous, heartwarming, and emotional story. If you’re ready for an escape, turn off the news, and curl up with this un-put-downable book. It’s just pure FUN.

This was a cute and heartwarming read! I enjoyed reading about Ember and Autumns story on their journey of finding love and happiness. However, this wasn’t really anything special! The relationships were underdeveloped and the storylines were rushed especially near the end. However, I adored the relationship between the sisters. The sisterhood and the bond that they shared was truly special. I also loved the relationship that Autumn formed with the hero’s daughter.

I think that if you need a cute summer read as a pick me up then this is a good one to read! This has a couple of my favorite tropes single dad and small town romance.

3 "That was easier than I expected." Stars

This book was a nice, summer-type read. Set on an animal rescue farm in the small town of Sunset, Kentucky, two very different sisters are working their respective ways to forever right along side each other. When an old crush and his spunky 7 year old daughter move back to town, Autumn Somerset gets the jolt she needs while Ember Somerset, her sister, finds something kindred in a man she's known for a few years.

The story is heartwarming and fun, full of familial craziness including the blunt and sometimes annoying honesty of sisters who are best friends. The addition of the child really lightens the whole story up as we see everyone make strides in growing together thanks to the innocent eyes of a precocious young girl.

The book was well written and the plot charming. There was just nothing that truly overwhelmed me about the story to gain a higher rating. Between the two sisters, I did feel that one got more story time than the other and wasn't sure why because the other couple was just as interesting. And further, some of the earlier quips from sister to sister I found distasteful but realized how they played into the overall growth of their relationship by the end. I didn't feel there was a big conflict or resolution to overcome rather just a well flowing story with a meaningful impact thanks to realizing ones true desires and being honest about them.

I think this women's fiction story is great a day in the sun to relax and let yourself be a part of these two sisters lives. arc5 s Teresa1,290 8

4.5 stars

This was a charming read! Family and relationship dynamics are always fascinating to me and I loved seeing the similarities/contrasts with sisters, Ember and Autumn. Mike and Tash, respectively, were perfect romantic matches for Ember and Autumn, although I felt Ember and Mike’s relationship was put in for an easy wrap-up to their ending. It was Tash’s daughter, Sadie, however, who stole my heart and the show! Her innocent love and appreciation of little things warmed the heart and her resiliency in a tough situation-gah! And her obvious love of all the animals at Autumn and Ember’s place was just too adorable for words.

Overall this was a satisfying read! I loved the various relationships and connections and got a kick out of each character’s courtship. But seriously, Sadie and her flock of furry friends are what I’m remembering most because they were just too darned cute and stole any pages they appeared on.

*I received a free copy of The Somerset Girls. This has in no way influenced my review which is honest and unbiased.*

I truly enjoyed getting to know Autumn and Ember - and while I'm usually a little indifferent to stories that follow two couples, it worked really well here!
I got the sisters and how supportive they were towards each other, and I loved both that and them. The romance was also very well done, and I got enough time with each of the couples, so I didn't feel one of them was left out.
Foster always manages to write characters that are well fleshed out, and I felt they were all completely tangible here - even side characters had enough characteristics to be realistic, and there were no flat ones that were just there decorating the background.

THE SOMERSET GIRLS by Lori Foster is a contemporary, adult, erotic, romance story line focusing on the Somerset sisters, and the men with whom they will fall in love: interior designer/animal rescue operator Autumn Somerset and single father / advertising executive Tash Ducker; and builder Ember Somerset and farm hand Mike Brewer.

Told from several third person perspectives THE SOMERSET GIRLS follows Autumn Somerset as she comes face to face with her high school crush Tash Ducker upon his return to Sunset Kentucky. Tash is a divorcee/widower with a seven year old daughter, and is looking for someone to redesign a few rooms but Autumn struggles in the wake of a failed relationship where she was left at the altar by her cheating ex-fiance. Rebuilding her friendship with Tash Ducker has the added benefit of his daughter Sadie, a precocious seven year old child who struggles with her own issues of trust and love. Tash, claiming he has no time for a sexual relationship finds himself falling for the woman that will steal his heart.

Meanwhile, Ember Somerset struggles with a heart breaking secret, a secret only her sister knows. Mike Brewer ‘s attraction to Ember pushes all of her buttons, an attraction that is mutual but one Ember refuses to admit. Mike is desperate for some one on one time with Ember Somerset, and makes Ember an offer she is reluctant to refuse. Both have secrets that neither one is willing to share but a mutual compromise reveals a growing love for this story line couple.

Lori Foster pulls the reader into a heart warming and emotional story of family and love; of betrayal and loss; of acceptance and moving forward. All of our story line characters, including Autumn and Ember’s parents Flynn and Tracy, have life experiences that are tragic but it is the experiences that form the person that each will become. The character driven premise is inviting and enjoyable-the conflict is minimal; the romances are seductive and intimate; the $ex scenes are passionate; the characters are real and animated. THE SOMERSET GIRLS is an uplifting and inspiring story of two sisters who find love and their own happily ever afters.

Sisters Autumn and Ember Somerset work together, live side-by-side in a duplex-style home, and hang out together in their free time. Autumn is a designer, Ember is a builder. Both sisters also run an animal rescue on their family farm, which they inherited from their grandparents.

Each sister has her own romance storyline, and I think they're really good. There is a low amount of angst and the love interests are respectful of Autumn and Ember, which I think is super swoony. One of the love interests has a 7-year-old daughter, Sadie, that ends up with a great storyline of her own. Sadie's scenes made me smile because she's such a cute little kid.

I love the animals on the farm and the ones featured in the rescues in the story. There is a family dog that the sisters share and he's adorable. I think the thing I loved most about this story is the relationship that Autumn and Ember have. They genuinely love one another and they want the best for one another. Each sister gets happy and excited when good things happen to her sister, and wise they both are angry or protective when the other one feels pain. I kept waiting for the sisters to have a Big Bad Thing happen to nearly injure their relationship, but nope, not in this story. The sisters' quirky parents also play a big role in the story, which really emphasized the importance of family. After finishing the book, I tend to think that Autumn's story is the prominent one in this story, but I genuinely enjoyed both sisters' storylines equally.

I had never read anything by Lori Foster before, despite owning several of her previous books. This one was a perfect read for me. I sat down with my digital copy yesterday morning and the entire thing in one day.

The Somerset Girls is a light, easy, read- perfect for a lazy weekend afternoon. Although my sister and I no longer have a relationship, it’s nice to read about ones Autumn and Ember- opposites who may not agree on everything but are always there for each other, no matter what. I d the way they bantered, but still had the other’s back when needed- especially Ember. She didn’t hold back when it came to wanting Autumn to step out of her comfort zone, but she was also the first one there to defend and “protect” her when needed.

I enjoyed the the way Ms. Foster was able to weave Autumn and Ember’s stories together. Considering they work and live together it would have been hard to have one’s story without the other- it would have felt something was missing! They may have been complete opposites- Autumn the quiet, unassuming bookworm, and Ember, the vivacious, outgoing, “party girl”, but deep down they both were dealing with some very personal issues. I appreciated how Ms. Foster handled those issues- not allowing the story to be weighed down by them, but also not glossing over them.

The romances were sweet- well Autumn and Tash’s was, I’d say Ember and Mike’s was more on the spicy side! Which actually fit for these sister’s personalities. I loved that Tash put his daughter as a priority, wanting to make sure she felt safe and loved after her world was turned upside down. Sadie was such a sweetheart, I just wanted to hug her!
This was a definite feel-good story, all around.

I have to admit, that lately, I have been feeling restless and just can't settle my mind enough for anything. Given what has been going on lately, I know I'm not alone. One thing I have been craving is a really feel good story that makes my heart sing. The Somerset Girls hit the spot. I am trying to find the words to say how much I loved this book and how much I needed this book. On the surface, it's a simple story about two sisters finding the loves of their lives. But dig down deeper it's so much more than that. It's about letting insecurities go. It's about making and loving family.

I loved the bond between the two sisters. Being an only child, I have always wanted to have a bond that. I'm not sure I can pick a favorite couple. I loved Ember and Mike as a couple as much as I loved Tash and Autumn as a couple. Tracey and Flynn were hilarious. I wish I could see a picture of Tracey's art. Add in a sweet little girl who needs the stability of family and you have a cast of characters you wish you could keep reading about. I highly recommend this one, especially if you want to escape for a while. 2020 for-review kindle3 s Nancy2,242 53

I believe this was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. I fell in love with sisters Autumn and Ember and their quirky personalities... While completely different, their love for each other was evident, along with their love of the parents who live on the farm with them. Autumn is the responsible one and Ember is the fun loving one. Both sisters are after a happily ever after and it is kind of hard not to root for them...

With a small-town feel following two sisters and their inherited animal rescue farm, this one had such a cozy vibe. I absolutely loved the sisterly bond between Autumn and Ember. Despite being complete opposites and receiving unnecessary comparisons from family, their relationship remained strong.

Being so different from each other, I loved how this was reflected in each of their developing romances. With a friends-to-lovers situation between Ember and Mike, longtime employee of the farm, PLUS Autumn’s second chance, single dad romance, there were so many moments to swoon over.

Despite all the goodness, I wanted something more. It had a lot of great heartfelt moments, including the topic of miscarriage, but a lot of the book felt it just scratched the surface. I think the third person perspective kept me from being totally immersed.friends-to-lovers second-chance-romance single-dad-romance ...more2 s Michele2,144

The Somerset Girls is, simply put, amazing. Lori Foster combined the feel of women’s fiction and contemporary romance to make this a touching novel that is definitely keeper shelf material.

Being a long-time fan of Lori Foster’s work, I was more than ready for a new story of hers to lose myself in. And from page one I was hooked. Autumn and Ember had the quintessential sisterly bond we all probably think of, but with some fun twists. They bickered a little bit and teased each other you’d expect. Of course they also had each other’s backs when it came time to stand up for their sibling... Read More

Autumn and Ember run an animal rescue farm. They bring in animals that have been abused. Care for them, and hopefully find them forever homes.
At first Ember made me a little upset at how she spoke to her sister Autumn. Soon though, once I heard her story and got to know her better, I d her a lot. She wasn't trying to be mean, in fact she was trying to be helpful. Mike, the hot guy who had been working on the farm, teased her constantly and was a thorn in her side and starred in her dreams, pointed out that maybe Ember needed to rephrase some of her comments. Soon those two grew close and had a heart to heart talk and cleared some misunderstandings up. I loved Mike , even though he could be a bit judgy, until he too learned a few things. To say their love story was great and charming and funny and hot would be an understatement.
Autumn was a gorgeous , full figured woman..who had no clue she was...the gorgeous part anyway. Tash was the guy she had crushed on in high school. Him being 2 years older and her being shy was an obstacle back then . He came back to town years later with an adorable 7 yr old daughter Sophie. Feelings quickly form between Tash and Autumn and Sophie. There are things in their pasts you will learn about that are heartbreaking. Issues they all need to deal with in their own way and with the help of each other. Tash and Autumn are wonderful together but at one point Tash totally confuses me. You'll know what I mean when you get there. I thought at one point, "What? But you said? Oh my gosh man tell her what you want!" Needless to say he did so they did and... ..yeah. SO along with all the amazing humans in this story...including Tracy and Flynn, Autumn and Embers parents, we get to meet the amazing Povlov who has a way with scared animals. Olivia and her sister Matilda, and Tracy. You will meet them all, you will fall for them all and want to take them home. There are a few more but there should be a bit more mystery when you are reading this yourself. Agreed?
I have tried not to give too much away other than the fact that this was a great story with wonderful characters.

The Somerset Girls was an utterly delightful summer surprise. Lori Foster outdid herself with this contemporary romance. It was so much fun and super cute with a much-needed, perfectly positive vibe.

The Somerset Girls featured a dynamic sisterly duo, and I totally admired their close friendship, despite their differences. I respected the strong female characters, the adorable, quirky animals, and the understanding, kind-hearted male counterparts. I also found the mother in the story absurdly entertaining. I enjoyed the very creative, interior design and personal construction aspects of the story as well.

I really loved everything about this sweet and endearing story which proved to be pure reading bliss.2020 2020-romance-contemporary romance-contemporary2 s Susan Wagner23 1 follower

The two sisters are running the animal-rescue farm they inherited from their grandparents, Autumn and Ember Somerset are perfectly in sync but yet so different. Autumn would rather curl up with a good book (that's me) and Ember is a free spirit.

This book was so much fun to read, I loved it. The sisters were so much fun and they had their own special things they do The rescue brought me close to what my niece does in Alabama. Autumn was so cool to be that talented. with power tools and Ember with her designs. Both had bad memories of passed relations but finally but it behind them.

Then everything changes when Autumn get a job working for her a guy she had a crush on in school when he comes back to Somerset with his daughter. His daughter gets really close to Autumn. Neither one of them want to admit they have feelings for each other. Ember keeps pushing but she won't admit she has feelings for Mike who works for them at the recuse farm. Then they go to swim party at the beach where the whole town goes.

I could not put this book down because I had to keep going to see what was going to happen next between the four of them. But they helped their parents who they had built a house for on the farm since their father had a stroke. Loved Loved Loved this book.2 s Kathy Hartfield8

I don’t to read that tell all about the story. To learn that read the synopsis or download a sample, then if you d what you read, buy the book. This story has a lot of emotion and brought home many memories of my life.
To me a review is 6 things and I have written my response to each item:
(1) how well it was written, ----- great story line, very emotional.
(2) How it flows from introduction to ending, ----- was easy to follow the story line and characters.
(3) If it grabs your attention early, so that you cannot put it down, ----- definitely did but slowed down some toward the middle, then caught up again and I didn’t want to put it down.
(4) if it has too many or too few romantic areas or is just right, ------ for me, perfect. I a story with a good beginning, a believable story line, with a happy ending and a few romantic areas throughout.
(5) if it has enough mystery or suspense to make you read to the last word plus want more, ----------
I personally would have d a little more mystery and suspense, but for this story line, it was adequate.
(6) how well it was edited, such as any glaring grammatical errors, ------ no comment as it was ARC.

This book was one of the better books of this series and it grabbed my attention quickly. It had enough action and suspense, but for me, I would have d a little more. The grammar cannot be reviewed as this was an ARC, but I have given my honest opinion of the book. I give it 5* and do recommend this book.2 s Jennifer1,164 596

Lori Foster's newest release  The Somerset Girls is a feel-good story about two sisters who find their HEA afters with two hunky men.

Autumn is the older of the two sisters and she's the shy one. She was cheated on by her ex-fiance weeks before their wedding. Afterward, she swore off men.  Until Tash (I really disd this name. I kept changing it to Dash when I was reading because Tash made me think of Trish a female name) her teenage crush comes back to town. Tash is back in town because he needs a good place to raise his 7-year-old daughter, Sadie. 

The two work closely together because he hired Autumn as their designer to fix up Sadie's bedroom and a play area in the yard. There's chemistry between them and Autumn and Sadie fall in love with each other. Autumn's not sure if Tash wants her for her or if he wants her around because she gets along so well with his daughter. Tash has the same confusion, wondering if Autumn sees him as a man or just Sadie's dad.

Ember the younger of the two sisters works with Autumn on some of her designs as a carpenter. They live side by side on their family's farm. They have their own careers plus they work to rescue animals and run their livestock farm. Ember has chemistry with their handyman and friend, Mike. Mike is a brother to Autumn but his no brother to Ember. Their sexual tension is off the charts. 

All four characters are dealing with past issues from cheating exes, to divorce and losing a baby. They are great cast of characters and I really enjoyed seeing them all come together as a close family unit. The Somerset Girls feels a standalone (as it's marketed to be) since both sisters get their HEA, in the end, I don't see Ember getting her own book. But I guess Lori Foster could revisit the town of Sunset, Kentucky with more stories or other townspeople. 

If you're looking for a fun, enjoyable read with a touch of heat then look for farther, The Somerset Girls will check off all the boxes for romance readers who love smalltown setting with charming characters.2 s HeidiAuthor 38 books430

I enjoyed the relationship between the sisters, Autumn and Ember. Their farm for rescued animals is a clever subplot. I d how they joined forces for a common goal (caring for their parents as well as the animals) yet the story also highlighted their distinct personalities and attitudes. This novel combines elements of women's fiction as well as romance. Mike and Tash are two very different men and the author did a nice job structuring both romances and carrying all four characters on interesting, plausible journeys.
The little girl in the story is adorable and made me smile often as I read.
For me, the stakes didn't seem real high in this story. The obstacles the protagonists had to battle in order to achieve their goals didn't seem all that difficult to overcome.
The role of Chuck as an antagonist confused me. I kept expecting him to add an element of suspense to the story and when that didn't happen, I was puzzled. He seemed a non-issue and a lame ex-boyfriend, rather than a significant obstacle for Autumn.
This is a sweet, heartwarming story about the Somerset sisters and the people they love. Fans of Lori Foster will the characters, the animal rescue farm and the balance between romance and the sisters' close relationship.
