4 SMALL TOWN CROWNS
I am generally not a huge fan of small town romances. I like my love stories to have a little more angst, a touch more darkness, sometimes a lot a more steam, but Melody Grace’s books just connect with me. I love everything about these little communities she creates and the people she fills it with.
Meant to Be focuses on Poppy, a romance writer, who is fleeing a relationship and looking for a little R&R. She seeks refuge at her aunt’s house. What is most admirable about Poppy is her unwavering faith in love. She fully believes in the love she writes about, and she is courageous enough to go searching for it, refusing to settle for anything less than earth shattering chemistry. She is a woman who lives what she writes.
Cooper is a hometown boy who had big goals, but ended up back home. Like most hometown boys, Cooper just has this charm. You sucked in by the thoughtfulness, the chivalry, and, in this case, that southern accent. I swear when he said Darlin’ my insides melted. Cooper, though, doesn’t believe in the romance, the soulmates, the can’t live without you feelings. He wants to, readers want it for him, and we spend most of the novel just hoping he will get it together before he loses it all.
This story is incredibly sweet with just a dash of steam. It makes the readers want to move to a small beach town where everyone knows you. This is the gift that Melody Grace has. She makes these towns come alive, and the people in it become like your family. You just want to pack up and find this place and settle in. Her books just provide pure comfort, like coming home.

Come take a trip to Sweetbriar Cove: the small town where true love is guaranteed.
Poppy Somerville believes in happily-ever-after. It’s the reason her romance novels have won devoted readers all over the world – and why she’s broken off her engagement just weeks before the wedding instead of settling for less than true love. Escaping to her aunt’s beach cottage in Sweetbriar Cove, Poppy is looking for inspiration to break her writer’s block and finish her new book. She just wasn’t counting on the handsome, gruff contractor making such a racket next door…
Cooper Nicholson doesn’t believe in soul-mates. He thought he’d found his forever once, and the world proved him wrong, so when the cute brunette comes storming over and demands he keep the noise down, romance is the last thing on his mind. But his new neighbor is full of surprises, and soon, their chemistry is too hot to ignore.
As they grow closer, they discover fiction has nothing on the plot twists life has in store. But will Cooper find a way to let go of the past and risk his heart again? And can Poppy find her happy ending – on and off the page?
