Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Harper Landing, a small town filled with people who believe in happy endings.

Left raising his newly orphaned nephew after a tragic accident, Aaron Baxter fears he’s not cut out to be a single dad. But to give baby Jack the life he deserves - and to find a peaceful refuge for himself - Aaron moves to the idyllic Pacific Northwest town of Harper Landing. 

Julia Harper, descendant of the town’s founder and successful frozen yogurt shop owner, is mostly resigned to her role as the often-overlooked girl next door. But when the town newcomer, Aaron, reaches out for help with Jack, she finds herself yearning to take part in a sweet love story of her own.

To Aaron, the grace Julia extends is a balm for his aching heart and the guilt he feels over his sister’s death. To Julia, Aaron’s adoration is the key to finally realizing her own worth. With a baby in the middle, can these two hurting souls find completeness in each other?

'Uncle Dad'

The more I think about Aaron's relationship to Jack, the more I like the term 'Uncle Dad' or 'Uncle Daddy'. Uncle Aaron doesn't seem close or intimate enough to encompass the relationship... but Uncle Daddy just sounds perfect to me. 💗

Very Enjoyable Listen

Sweet Bliss kept me interested in what was to come, unlike so many other books of this genre where after a few chapters I can easily fall asleep and wake up and not care enough to want to rewind.
I really liked the author’s writing style and liked the fact that it was so current. Look forward to the next book.

Sweet Bliss

This was a book I picked up because I liked the cover.
I am glad I did, it was exactly what I needed after my last book.

A lot of people like Julia she is member of the founding family she is not the owner of most of the shops on Main Street but she is overlooked a lot of the time. People tend to walk all over people like her and she doesn’t know how to get a backbone.
Aaron is new to town but also raising his newly orphaned nephew. Becoming a single parent and coping with the loss of his sister and brother in law is a lot.

When these two meet you can see the sparks, they are drawn to each other, it happened at a nice steady rate and I really enjoyed getting to hear them fall in love.

I really enjoyed the narration for this book as well. I don’t think I have heard either one of these narrators before.

What small towns should be like, and sometimes are

Could relate to the single dad. Loved story and town. Reminder that life can be short. Look for the connections.

Cliche

Why oh why do these feel good, romance type stories have to be about people under 30? Do people over 30 not fall in love or have romance in their lives?! Furthermore, throw in a main female character who has poor self esteem, a male character full of the usual guilt over something and you've got the full package. There's a good premise for the story but with all the poor pitiful me crap, it's a let down.

Love it!!

I was hooked on this one immediately!! The characters are well developed, and the story was so charming. It made me want to live in Harper Landing. Definitely worth a listen!
