Don't miss this Return to Snow Valley Romance by bestselling sweet romance author, Cami Checketts
Daisy Castleton won Singing with the Stars and a huge recording contract, but when she discovers she has throat cancer, she escapes to Snow Valley, Montana. She didn't plan on literally running into her childhood hero, Jamison Hall, on a hiking trail. Jamison makes her laugh and forget her bleak situation and that might be more dangerous than the predators in the music industry.
You know what this means? I've missed a Snow Valley anthology somehow. I'll have to go ferret out the other stories.
Anyway, here's another fun story from Checketts. Daisy is quite stubborn about trying to keep Jamison at a distance. All the reasoning why makes sense, even if you do want to kind of slap her for it. And Jamison! He definitely doesn't have any lack of confidence. Even though he comes off cocky, you can still see that he's a really good guy with his own insecurities. The two of them together have great chemistry and there are several moments that are just funny.
I did feel for Daisy too. She had so much fear about the cancer because of her mother dying from cancer that she couldn't allow herself to hope for the relationship she wanted with Jamison.
As always, Checketts' writing made it easy to fall in the story and not come out until the very end.
I give Romancing the Singer a Clean rating with a 4.5 on the scale. Nothing pulled me out of the story and that's a big deal for me.
1-5 scale and what it means:
1: I couldn’t even finish it / just plain bad
2: I hope I didn’t pay for this / disappointing
3: I didn’t hate it, but it was still missing something / forgettable but inoffensive
3.5: On the line between good and ok / like, not love
4: Solid mind candy / worth reading
4.5: So very close to perfection! / must read
5: I could not put it down and I’m still thinking about it! / a true treasure
Movie Ratings in relation to my review:
Clean--Hallmark movies, some kissing, no nudity, no sex on or off "screen"
PG--Some innuendo but nothing kids don't hear every day, sex is all closed door
PG-13--some language (swear words not related to sex), more talk about sex, heavy petting, removal of clothing on screen, but sex is closed door.
R--swearing (F bomb, on “screen” sex, sometimes feels like the whole story is about the sex and not the relationship or some other plot, but not always
