Six Days of Spring

Charlee James. Tule, $3.99 e-book (198p) ISBN 978-1-956387-87-2

Love brings an end to a decades-long feud in James’s fourth Northampton Hearts romance (after Fourteen Days of Valentines). Potter Dahlia Reynolds temporarily moves home to Northampton, Mass., to look after her sister, Lacey, following a car accident. With the town’s Six Days of Spring farmer’s market fast approaching, Dahlia and her father have been conscripted to work the booth for Lacey’s pickling business. But Dahlia is unpleasantly surprised to find that the apartment she’s renting is owned by Tristan Stoll, the son of the man who destroyed her family’s livelihood. Since childhood, Tristan has lived with the shame of his father’s shady dealings and now he’s trying to right his father’s wrongs by running an ethical business. Proximity forces Dahlia and Tristan to see each other in new lights, and feelings bloom, but Dahlia is hesitant to start a relationship. Her father still holds a grudge, so to be together, they’ll first have to face their families’ history. James puts a lot of heart into their confrontation with the past, and makes it easy to see how these two will move together into the future. Readers will be invested every step of the way.
