Couldn't understand - bad sentence structure, didn't care for Sadie and just overall not good. Gave up reading.

A superb novella! (“Superb” seems like a very fitting/British adjective to use!) A great starter to another wonderful series. Love Grace’s characters and the way she tells a story. Captures your attention from cover to cover.

This little gem is free, or at least it was at the time I reviewed it. This is another prequel to Ms. Burrowes newest series, a contemporary grouping called Sweetest Kisses. While the main novels are about the Knightley brothers, the first two novellas are about supporting characters. A taste, if you will, of the goodies to come! I have loved the historical novels by this author. Some say I'm her number one fangirl. That could certainly be true! In this story, Sadie is working hard to protect her sister and her nephew. They've had a very hard couple years and this is a new start for everyone. Gideon has moved into the apartment complex while his elderly farmhouse is getting a face-lift. Living with him is his very LARGE dog, Baby. Gideon is an investigator and he's looking for the young son of a client. We know where the lines are going to cross long before our characters do, and it kept me on tenterhooks. One of the best parts of this author's "tricks" is that she has her characters ACT LIKE ADULTS. They don't keep secrets, they work together...family is everything. I do love that. While she uses this "trope" in every book she writes, whether it is this new contemporary series, or her many historicals, this never gets old with me. There is a love scene in this book that was truly one of the most beautiful ones I've ever read. And there are no "f" words...or that horrible "c" word either. It's hotter than heck, and beautifully erotic, with no "bad" words. Whew...almost melted my iPad.

Thought was a longer book, but was short. A third of the books were previews of two of her other books.

This was a well developed, fast-paced good story. Believable, lovable characters all (except the "bad guy" of course)! Loved the dog, "Baby," too! An enjoyable cozy mystery you won't want to miss.

Grace Burrowes’ first contemporary series, Sweetest Kisses, has all the good things I’ve come to love about her stories and writing: too-good-to-be-true heroes, a stubborn damsel in distress, the cozy and intimate details of domestic life, and a seemingly insurmountable conflict.  This is a novella, so a lot must be packed into a short format, but I think it works here. Though I would have liked more from Gideon’s point of view–he seems kind of flat to me–Sadie and Gideon’s love story is a comfortable and sweet one, born of understanding and honor. Sadie protects her emotionally and physically damaged younger sister and nephew, an abused wife on the run with her child from her ex who has not paid child support. Sadie’s game design business keeps them all above water but it’s a lonely life. When she first meets Gideon, a neighbor in her apartment building, he protects her from his very large dog and, from then on out, everything else as well. Gideon is a British lawyer turned investigator who has an elusive client–it’s not hard to guess just who that is. A great coincidence but, hey, it’s fiction. This is a tense story, fraught with fear at times but consoled with loving and affectionate moments. We also meet Gideon’s friends, the gorgeous Knightley brothers–a nod to that stately gentleman from Jane Austen’s Emma–all of whom will be featured in future stories in the series. A thoughtful, if rather melancholy, read.

This is a cute prequel to the Sweetest Kisses series. It is Sadie and Gideon's story not Dunston and Jane's story. Introduces the Knightley brothers.

this story is cute but it's not the one that is advertised.
