Written in the Stars: A Cricket Creek Novel by LuAnn McLane
Publication Date: October 6, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
From the USA Today bestselling author of Walking on Sunshine comes a new novel set in Cricket Creek, Kentucky, starring a city girl who meets the man of her dreams in a least likely place—a sweet, small town nowhere near the big city…
No one is more shocked than Grace Gordon when her cosmetics line makes her a millionaire in need of new investments. Bailing out Mason Mayfield’s Cricket Creek craft brewery seems like the perfect solution. It doesn’t hurt that the sexy country boy makes her weak in the knees…
Sure, Mason is grateful to Grace for saving his brewery. But her upscale marketing plans for his down home business are driving him crazy. She needs a good man to reel her in, and he happily takes the job—especially since it’ll involve some time behind the brewery’s closed doors.
Unfortunately, Grace has never been good at staying in one place. And now that she’s thinking about leaving, Mason has to convince her to call Cricket Creek home—and admit their love was written in the stars…
I loved this light romance about a charming small town, the people who live there and mostly the people who stumble upon it. The whole story was just a feel good journey of not only Mason and Grace finding love and themselves but also the people around them. They joked that love was in the water and I began to wonder that myself. I smiled at the lighthearted humor and melted at the heartfelt romance while enjoying the community coming together for each other. I did get real frustrated with Grace toward the end but that was also a part of her story. Overall it made me happy and now I want to move to Cricket Creek but will have to be content with reading the next book in the series.
