Brewing up trouble one pint at a time.
What’s a girl to do when the only person who can help her is the man who betrayed her? After years away, Miranda returns to Salvation, Virginia to save her family’s brewery, but her fate is in the hands of her first lover turned enemy, Logan Martin.
Logan, Salvation’s de facto prince, can’t believe his luck when the woman who smashed his heart to smithereens walks into his bank asking for his help. What she doesn’t know is he needs the land her brewery is on. When she tempts him with a bet—if she wins, he gives her the loan; if he wins, she forfeits the land—he knows it’s a sure thing.
An Irresistible Combination
But soon it’s a battle between their attraction for each other and their determination to win, and it’s in each other’s arms that they realize there might be more at stake now than the bet. With the town dead set against the Sweet Salvation Brewery’s success, Logan has to choose between what’s expected of him and what he really wants—even if helping Miranda means she’ll run out of his life once again.
I hoped I would be getting a pretty decent story when I started this book, and for the majority of the book it really is entertaining.
Both Miranda and Logan are descendants of the town's founding fathers, but they couldn't be more opposite from each other. Growing up, Logan was the privileged golden boy of the town, while Miranda and her two sisters were always treated unjustly and shunned simply because of their family name. Even after being gone from the town for several years, the same attitudes and prejudices reappear once Miranda goes back to deal with the Sweet Salvation Brewery, only now there is more at stake in regards to the land the brewery is on.
I liked the story overall, I thought the characters were developed fairly well, with the right of amount of tension between Logan and Miranda. The story's pace moved along at a good speed, but I thought it took a bit too long to explain why Miranda's family were always looked down on. I was also a bit confused on a couple of issues that weren't fully explained, like (1) what was the reason that Logan's father was so dead set against there being any possible relationship between Logan and Miranda and (2) where was his father and what was his dad's reaction to the council meeting that occurred?
A fairly quick and definitely entertaining story, one I would recommend as a good beach read.
Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
