#WOTR23 #EnemiesToLovers #InstaLove #SmallTown #KU – The Sweetest Thing, Starlight Harbor Book 1 by Bria Quinlan

Starlight Harbor’s Sweetheart has had enough…

Lyra Grigor is the easy going, sweet, smile-at-everyone owner of The Sweetest Things.  When an annoying travel site puts Starlight Harbor on their Top Ten Tacky Tiny Towns list for the fourth year running, she knows it’s time to give the writer a bit of spicy tart instead of a teaspoon of sugar.

An outsider who just wants out…

Spence Côte has no idea what hit his site. Nearly a thousand replies on some little baker’s comment and everything has blown up. Since the site is up for sale, it couldn’t have happened at a worse time. Now he has to drive up to the middle of nowhere coast of Maine and get this resolved. ASAP.

Two worlds collide…

Between the puppies dressed as pirates, the older women masquerading as tavern wenches, and the sweetest little baker he’s ever seen, Spence knows Starlight Harbor might not just be freakishly adorable….it might be what he’d been looking for.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

I am not sure where to begin with this book except to say it landed in my lap during a much needed time.  I needed some light.  I needed some sweet.  I needed a delicious buttercream frosting cupcake that only Lyra and Spencer could provide.

This book is ab-so-lute adorable fun.  It is insta-hateish love???  Is this a thing?  I dunno but Bria did it and I loved it.   This book has banter…lawd the banter between Lyra, the harmed town baker and Spencer, the journalist and or Mob Boss???  I loved the town history and why they do the Christmas celebrations year-round.  I loved how the town rallied behind Lyra when she was throwing Spencer out of town…Angie and her dog did make me smile A LOT.

I was reading this book and laughing so much.  The townspeople are nuts but in the best dang possible way.  Lyra and Spencer and both head over heels about the other but pride keeps them at bay from admitting feelings pluuuuuus they aren’t really sure if feelings are reciprocated.

I had the best couple of hours reading and admit I might grab the next book in the series just because I wanna see how Cam is going to win Vi.  She is a disgruntled female who is going to be wooed in a biiiiiiiiig way.

But honestly this book was just a fun read.  It’s a good book when you just need some happiness or feel good in your life.  Don’t we all need and want some happiness and feel good!!??

Finally putting those English Literature and Creative Writing degrees and Copy Editing cert to work, Bria’s excited to get her quirky stories on the page to share with the world (or at least a segment of it).

She’s represented by the awesomely amazing Lauren Macleod of the Clan…. Oh, wait. Of Strothman Agency.
