When I saw Love at Cooper’s Creek by Missouri Vaun listed on NetGalley I was intrigued. I have really enjoyed the other books that I have read of hers in the past. This book was no exception.
Here is a short blurb about the book:
Successful but suffocated by the demands of her corporate career, Shaw Daily walks out on it all. She returns to her grandparents’ rural property in Cooper’s Creek, North Carolina, with a plan to hide out and reboot her life to be simple and stress free. But escapism eludes her when her attentions are captured by small town beauty Kate Elkins.
Kate has spent almost her entire life in Cooper’s Creek. For Kate, the bonds of small-town life are a source of strength and comfort. When her aging mother weakens, Kate takes a leave from teaching to care for her. Romance is the last thing on her mind when she bumps into her unrequited teen crush Shaw Dailey just back from California. Long-buried feelings resurface for Kate, but all Shaw sees is a beautiful woman saddled with the responsibilities she is finally free from.
I really enjoyed this book. I also liked how the story was told from both Shaw and Kates point of view. It gave a deeper view into their relationship. I liked how each of the characters had a side story to go along with their relationship. Shaw was on a search to find out about herself and she discovers the truth about her family. Kates Story hit close to home for me because Kates mother had Alzheimer’s and my grandmother also had Alzheimer’s and recently passed away. I really appreciated Kate taking care of her mother. I also enjoyed how Shaw is portrayed as Butch. When she stands up to the redneck boys I was on the edge of my seat. This book has some of the best sex scenes that I have ever read.
I would recommend this book for anyone who loves a sweet romance and steamy sex scenes. Also, if you like strong butch women this is a great book for you.
A big thanks to Bold Strokes Books and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read and review Love at Cooper’s Creek.
