Monday morning and a great time for a cozy romance … and there’s a US giveaway too!
What they say: She’s about to launch her dream business. The last thing she needs is a distracting housemate and his son…
Shelby is excited to open a shop with her best friend. But with Janna just-married and moved out, she worries their hopes of starting a boutique will never come true. And things get more complicated when her old distrust of men is put to the test by her handsome new roommate and his little boy…
With Oktoberfest decorations forgotten and replaced by Christmas cheer, she slowly allows Shane and the child a space in her heart. But she doesn’t trust her second chance at romance or the success of her boutique when surprising news threatens her newly minted courage.
Can Shelby find the strength to let her ambitions flourish, along with her new passion?
Bedazzled Dreamer is the second touching book in the Inspiration In Cologne women’s fiction series. If you like heartwarming stories, cozy small towns, and festive holiday experiences, then you’ll love Deborah King’s romantic women’s fiction tale.
The Review: I had hoped that with the title of this would come a story as wistful and beautiful as the name and actually said title was the reason I chose the book and I most definitely wasn’t disappointed. I really enjoyed this book, the tale of Shelby and her dreams of opening a store. I was hooked into the business itself, both the actual business side of it and the store itself, which, after being in Germany just this year, I could picture what with the big affinity over there for markets and wholesome produce.
The setting and general ambiance was gorgeous, with the wistfulness I hoped for. The romance was spot on and I loved the characters although, to be honest, Shelby wouldn’t have been my favourite person.
All in all very much a book for people who like being swept away, with the descriptions, settings and general coziness something that was perfection for this time of year. Very much recommended and read as a standalone, although I’d say probably go back to book one to get the full story! Thanks so much to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for allowing me to be part of the blog tour and for the book in return for an honest review.
