If you’re looking for your next summer vacation read, look no further. CAPE COD KISSES has everything you could ever want in the perfect beach read.
Melissa Foster is not an author I’ve had the pleasure of reading yet so I was thrilled to hear that she was writing something with Bella Andre, who happens to be one of my favorite authors. While I can pick out Andre’s touches here and there throughout the novel, there were enough differences from Andre’s own books that I found in this one that I really enjoyed and I think I can attribute those touches to Foster.
Family is something that Andre’s stresses a lot in her books so it’s really no surprise that the Rockwell family are a tight group. However, that isn’t to say that everything is perfectly fine between them. When their grandfather drops a bomb on them, the Rockwells will have to gather and decide on their next plan of action because now everything lies in her hands. I personally love this touch to the story because it just adds another layer to the romance although I will admit that there are some times when I think it draws away from the romance at times.
Speaking of the romance, Shelley Walters doesn’t actually have any in her life which is the reason she is at the island. In fact, she’s there on her solo honeymoon and when she stumbles upon Quinn Rockwell while a little tipsy, Quinn is unable to lend a helping hand to make sure she gets home safely after her little skinny dipping session.
Quinn and Shelley are absolutely adorable together. I loved reading about them. There are so many sweet moments between them but that is also interspersed with various experiences that focus more on the island and the people who live there. You can tell that Foster and Andre are looking to make this series a long one. So far, five books are already scheduled to be released and I can already see the possibilities with a lot of the characters. Fans of Toni Blake’s Coral Cove series will definitely get a kick out of this one!
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
