Series: A Bluff Point Romance #2
Published by Berkley
“Jenn’s style is very fun and light in this series.”
~ Under the Covers
Jenn McKinlay returns to Bluff Point with BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE. This is the second in the series and you don’t need to read the other books in the series to enjoy this one. If you’re new to Jenn and her books, this is her very first Contemporary Romance series. She’s a Cozy Mystery writer at heart, but I like that she’s expanding her genres and trying something new.
Jenn’s style is very fun and light in this series. There’s quite a lot of humor and banter in this series, which kind of reminds me of books like Jill Shalvis. However, I will say that the humor can take the place of plot in these books. Since the entire book is quite light, there’s not too much focus on conflict, which is my only real complaint about this series. I do like the romance and I do like all the characters but I don’t necessarily get that urge to continue reading to find out what happens next like some of her Cozy Mysteries do. So if you plan on starting this series, I do think you need to be in a certain mindset to enjoy it. Be prepared for something much lighter in tone and fun because that’s really where book shines.
If you’re an animal lover, well, you’re in luck because this book has lots of great animal appearances. Once again, they offer some great comic relief and some of the reactions from these characters were hilarious.
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!
