In the second installment of the Beachy Bride series, we follow the story of Katherine and Holst. A tale of shaking off the past, embracing the future, and finding true love.
*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
Katherine in Gold is the second in The Beachy Bride series by J.B. Hartnett. Not only was I excited when I saw it arrive on my Kindle having loved the first book I the series Bride in Bloom. But also intrigued by the warning author had added at the start the synopsis. I’m a big fan of the author, and I do love books with the hint of a possible wedding so I couldn’t wait to dive in!
“It all starts with the dress. The guy comes later”
Well, I wasn't disappointed I loved it. Katharine was independent and sassy, and heartbreak had left her with her walls up, vowing never to let any get close until Holst that is. Holst is all man alpha and sexy, and the one who makes her see things differently the man. I like Katherine and could totally understand because of her past, why she reluctantly let Holst get too close. Holst is a man who is going to make you swoon; he is so my kind of man.
“I would embrace the fact I was following my dreams, and ignoring everything else surrounding it”
“There was much more to Katharine, and each and every time I was in her presence, I felt a pull to learn more”
Katherine in Gold is beautifully written romance book about true love, trust, friendship, healing, moving on from the past and taking a chance. It was emotional, funny and intense at times with characters that you can’t help but love, as they pull you into the story. It’s a must read for all you romantics out there. J.B Hartnett is an amazing writer, who knows how to write a great romance story that make you feel with great characters.
“When someone gives you happiness, try to fill their world with beauty”
And one part did make me laugh, and I have to message Julia to let her know I have a brother called Devon!! ;-) If you have read the book and seen a photo of me on social media, then you will understand what I’m saying. Hahaha
Julie is a Southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin) and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers).
She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she could be a singer songwriter...the 'writer' part is the one that stuck.
Julie is obsessed with pi...the equation(and the food). She's allergic to cats and cantaloupe and hates mushrooms...so if you ever want to give her a gift, those are out for sure.She currently lives with her own romance hero husband and two boys in Melbourne, Australia.
