This is the third book in the Mill Pond series, and by this point I had hoped it would be evolved than it currently is To be fair, the story is okay, if rather monotonous, by constantly going through Paula s day to day routine It felt like diary of a chef that list down Monday do this, this and this, Tuesday do this, this, this and thaten off day on this and that day , continuing on and on from chapter to chapter, which was rather boring The food cooked wasn t even original, just copied from al [...]
2.5 starsNot my favorite of the Mill Pond romance series To be fair the story is okay, if rather monotony to my taste it centered on Paula Hull, the chef at Ian s MC from Cooking Up Trouble resort And when I say centered, it literally evolved around her and from her point of view Yes, there is romance between the pages Although the chemistry between the characters were barely there Personally, I wasn t even sure despite the blurb if Paula and Chase actually attracted to one another and would end [...]
I received and ARC of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review When I m choosing books to read, I try really hard not to end up with a book that is in the middle of a series Even when the author says books and the series can be read individually without confusion I d rather have the tapestry that the author is creating as the series progresses in my mind When I requested this book I found no indication it was part of a series I found out before I read it that it kind of is thou [...]

Love on Tap by Judi LynnMill Pond 2Cast of characters there were many with side stories aplentyWriting of a diary than an immersion into the action of the storyFood plenty of meals and ingredients listed that made me want to get out a cookbook or google onlineRomance there was some but it was rather tame and late to the partyHero Chase, a handsome hunk that had women chasing after him why did he want Paula Heroine Paula, a widowed mother of two and a chef she had the hots for someone other than [...]
This was just an ok read for me It s a very sweet read Little to no angst Everything is just so perfect A little too perfect is you ask me I also found it very repetitive It took me a bit to really figure out who the hero of the story was Paula the heroine, has feeling for someone else for most of the story but then her feelings change Overall this wasn t a bad read I just think a little conflict would have made it a bit interesting.
Paula grew up with everyone she loves leaving her, so when chase came into the picture she just viewed him as a friend and then one day something happened and her whole world changed forever Chase was a guy that didnt keep relationships so when things started to show the colors of.love he did.what he had and faced it head on.
I found this book largely confusing and a little stilted I didn t really buy the main romance and I couldn t fully keep track of the immense number of characters Many of them felt like caricatures rather than characters I was so intrigued by the plot, but unfortunately, this one let me down.
via netgalleyan enjoyable read.
