I read a lot and post my reviews
Christmas at the Grand Hotel: White Pine Island Novellas #1 and #2 - Amie Denman, May Williams Christmas at the Grand Hotel: White Pine Island Novellas #1 and #2 Liked the story line and thought cover was basic, simple and to the point. Am new to this author so excited to read this book and others. Love the recap of the two books in this series without giving the whole thing away. Island sounds so perfect! Love that it involves a golf course as I am a fan. . Ned and Bethany's story, White Pine Island by May Williams Phillips family owns the huge Grand Hotel sitting on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Ned runs the golf course and he's compliant on all the regulations. There is a group that wants him to make changes... Ned's sister Ellen took care of transportation..other cousins handled other areas. Mr. Hinkle and his daughter Bethany would tag along and not play. Ned couldn't believe how much she had changed over the years-she was now a knockout! They cut that night short and went to the hotel to check in-she's got her own room, early for the wedding preparations of her sister. She's there to spy on Ned, sending pictures of the golf course to her old boss who will go after his course as it's not compliant with rules and regulations. She has a lot of secrets and he hopes to find out about them all. Love her new career choice, same direction but getting an education for me. Also the history of the area is fascinating. He hopes to get closer to her to find out her secrets....hot steamy sex scenes. Misunderstandings arise and you wonder if they will continue their relationship.... Next in the series sound really good also, can't wait to read them. . White Pine Island Novella 2 by Amie Denman Pete's family owns and runs the golf cart family business. He's happy on the island, an electrical engineer and there's just enough to keep him busy, things that challenge his mind. Ellen also works for the family business on White Pine Island, in transportation part. They are both lifetime friends over the years and both just want to work and inherit their families businesses when the time comes. His father are ready to sell and move to the mainland... steamy sex scenes and you wonder how they will remain to be the best of friends ... Really enjoyed this read also and can't wait for the next in the series. I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
