    First off, isn't that cover so cute? And it just feels so warm and inviting to me. The cool feel of the blue background with the added stack of books and cute, warm looking mittens...it all makes me feel happy. And let me tell you that not only does the cover make me feel warm and happy, but the inside story made me very happy (and smiley) too!I am a huge fan of the Pine Valley series by Heather B. Moore.

The cool feel of the blue background with the added stack of books and cute, warm looking mittens...it all makes me feel happy. And let me tell you that not only does the cover make me feel warm and happy, but the inside story made me very happy (and smiley) too!I am a huge fan of the Pine Valley series by Heather B. Moore. I was beyond happy when she went past the initial three books that I thought she would be writing for this series. Each time I see that she has announced a new book, I give a little squeal and look forward to the time that I get to set down and enjoy this quaint town, and the great characters who live there. I'm really hoping that one of the somewhat main characters in this book gets their own story...fingers crossed. I think it might be a bit of a complicated story, but I think there will be many pleasant surprises knowing the amazing writing talents of this author. If I sound like I'm gushing a little bit, well, it's because I am. I can't help myself. Heather is one of my top clean favorite authors...doesn't matter the genre!For those book lovers who love stories about libraries, librarians, and authors, this is the book for you. Livvy is the librarian, Mason Rowe is the author and Slade is our resident Dr. We get a little bit of a love triangle here but those of you who don't care for love triangles, never fear, it's resolved and it's a great resolution. Definitely not a love triangle in the sense of the young adult, young girls angsty love triangles.The romance was very well written in this and very sweet. The friendship and development of the relationship between the two characters who fall in love was a delight to read. I was laughing many times at their banter and silly dialogue. It was a story that was very fun to escape to during this busy time of year, and it just kept calling to me until I had read the last page.Oh, and I have to say that the characters you love from previous books still have little appearances throughout this book. But if you haven't read any previous books, no worries, you'll not be lost. It's a great series that you can read one, all, in any order, or from Book #1 to Book #6 and be happy. My opinion for optimal enjoyment is to read them all (of course if you have the time)!Content: Clean. A couple kissing scenes where the main couple makes out but nothing further than some kissing.I received a copy from the author. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.Happy Reading!!!

    This is my first Pine Valley book to read and it's #6, yikes I can see what I've really been missing. This book was so atmospheric, I really felt as though I was in Pine Valley in all that cold, piling up snow and as if I were drinking hot chocolate right along with Livvy. Can't go wrong with hot chocolate, or any type of chocolate really. This is Olivia, but she goes by Livvy, she's a librarian and Mason's story. I really loved seeing the character development .

This book was so atmospheric, I really felt as though I was in Pine Valley in all that cold, piling up snow and as if I were drinking hot chocolate right along with Livvy. Can't go wrong with hot chocolate, or any type of chocolate really. This is Olivia, but she goes by Livvy, she's a librarian and Mason's story. I really loved seeing the character development . Livvy has had a childhood fantasy of being the perfect doctor's wife. She's carried that fantasy with her into adulthood passing up dates with anyone but doctors. We know she's passed up a lot of great guys out there. Dating Dr. Selfish Put Livvy Last In Importance aka Doctor Dr. Slade McKinney is what she wants he's perfect for her, she's snagged her doctor. But is it what's best for her and is it really what she wants? He's a doctor so he's always on call and is often late for dates and has to leave in the middle of dates. he also doesn't make time often enough for her. When fate has a different plan for her she doesn't realize it yet but she will soon in the form of hunky lumberjack looking writer, Mason Rowe. He's been ordered by his publicist to break his writers block and rent a cabin in beautiful snowy Pine Valley to get his book written. Writing doesn't involve librarian ladies,dating or socializing it entails full on relaxation and writing his book. But when Livvy and Mason seem to keep running into each other Livvy realizes Mason knows how to properly treat a lady and she actually has fun with him. Slade seems to be up for a challenge when he sees Mason may be interested in her and starts to spend more time with Livvy but he still breaks dates and needs to leave dates early. I really,really,had a connection with this book. I absolutely loved it. Will Livvy stay with Slade and not get the respect she needs or will things progress with Mason who is set to go back home to CA soon? I NEED to read more by this author now that I've discovered her!Published December 4th 2018 by Mirror PressI was given a complimentary copy , thank you. All opinions expressed are my own

    I've been following this series from the beginning and this one is my favorite! I loved it so much and read it in one sitting. Couldn't put it down!Livvy thinks she's got her life figured out and has everything planned. Then she meets Mason and her plans don't work anymore. Mason was awesome. I loved how protective and concerned with her he was from the beginning and I loved that he was writer. I really liked how their relationship progressed and the ending was worth waiting for.

    Livvy decides when she's very young that she's going to be a doctor's wife. She's taken this dream so far that in high school she'd screen guys by asking what they wanted to studying after graduation. If it wasn't in the medical field she wouldn't date them!! In college she dated a couple of pre-med students, and now she's dating one of the most eligible men in Pine Valley--Dr. Slade McKinney, who definitely takes her easy going nature for granted. I wouldn't exactly call what they're doing dati Livvy decides when she's very young that she's going to be a doctor's wife. She's taken this dream so far that in high school she'd screen guys by asking what they wanted to studying after graduation. If it wasn't in the medical field she wouldn't date them!! In college she dated a couple of pre-med students, and now she's dating one of the most eligible men in Pine Valley--Dr. Slade McKinney, who definitely takes her easy going nature for granted. I wouldn't exactly call what they're doing dating, because Slade seems to cancel on her so frequently they only go out every couple of weeks, and even when they go out he's always on the phone and/or leaves early. You'd think he's the only doctor in Pine Valley.Enter Mason Rowe, an author of thriller novels who has a bad case of writer's block. He's in Pine Valley, far away from San Diego to write his new novel, and goes to the library everyday to write. What are the odds that the head librarian in the small town of Pine Valley is a huge fan of his books? Mason and Livvy hit it off and she soon realizes that Slade aka Mr. Dreamy Doc may be a doctor, but he doesn't treat her very well, and maybe it's time she put away her childhood dream of marrying a doctor.What's better than a librarian getting together with a bestselling author? Livvy and Mason's first meeting is so funny--homeless lumberjack 😂. These two had instant chemistry and I'm surprised they didn't set the books on fire with all that kissing going on between the bookshelves. It didn't take much for me to be on team Mason because, other than being a doctor, Slade didn't have much going for him in my book. He and Livvy sounded more like buddies than girlfriend/boyfriend--one kiss in 5 months?! Plus there's no way I'm going hiking with some guy at 5:30 a.m. in the snow, not even if he looked like Paul Newman in his prime (yes, I'm showing my age). Especially if he hiked like a possessed mountain goat, and then leaves me to fend for myself when I get a charley horse in my calf. Mason was the perfect gentleman--following Livvy home to make sure she got home safely in the snow, bringing her goodies from the bakery, opening doors for her, etc. He even shaved his beard for her!! Not too many guys would do that. I'd forgotten that Livvy's best friend is Felicity who works at the bookstore. How great is it to have a best friend work at a bookstore and your boyfriend is a writer? Plus Felicity always has ice cream in her freezer. Of course I loved this book--just like all the other Pine Valley books I didn't want to put it down. I had to find out how Livvy and Mason were going to work things out.

    Until We Kissed is another great book in the Pine Valley series. Each of these books are so entertaining and are quick, fun reads. It’s easy to fall in love with these Pine Valley characters and stories. I especially loved this plot, as there was an author and a librarian as the main characters. Livvy and Mason have fantastic chemistry and I loved how they interacted. And wow! Their kisses were amazing. The ending is one of my favorites of the series.

Luckily Mason walks into her life and starts showing her that her doctor man might not be all that great. Livvy and Mason start with friendship because that's a very good place to start. Also, Livvy has a boyfriend so there is that too. I loved how their friendship bloomed and then changed. The attraction was zingy and fun. Did I mention the kissing yet? Because it was awesome. :) I love this whole series. It's one of my favorites. This story is probably in my top two favorites of the series. I'm looking forward to the next book, Let's Begin Again, which is now up for pre-order and will be coming out the end of January.Content: kissing- I received a complimentary copy of this book.

    Livvy was such a fun character to read. I started reading this book at night, which was a mistake because I stayed up WAY too late. I just couldn’t put it down. The story is fun, the characters are relatable, and there are just enough of those moments where you can grimace in sympathy with the characters. I loved the book and now I have to read the rest of the series.

It read 'real' and with the beautiful heartfelt romance just a fun, romantic read. Perfect!I received a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review from the author. This in no way influenced my review.

Can a famous author make her rethink her priorities and her dreams of marrying a doctor?I absolutely loved this story! It reminded me of the Aliso Creek series written by the same author and they were my favourite series of hers. I inhaled this book. I just couldn’t put it down. It’s a really great, clean romance with lots of steam. Highly recommended!
