A jilted bride. A struggling innkeeper. And a romantic mountain getaway that changes everything
Rising Hollywood star Mia Emerson is looking for a safe place to land in the wake of a public breakup and celebrity scandal, and she finds it in the lake town of Bluebell, North Carolina—the location of her canceled honeymoon. She wants nothing more than to hide and wait for the tabloids to die down.
Soon after her arrival at the Bluebell Inn, Mia meets Levi Bennett, who runs the inn along with his two younger sisters. Drawn to one another from the start, Mia trusts Levi to keep her location from the press, and Levi confides in Mia about the precarious financial state of the inn—a secret he’s been keeping from his sisters.
When Mia and Levi discover an old journal that hints at a rare diamond necklace hidden in the inn, they set off on a treasure hunt to find the long-lost heirloom. What they don’t expect to surface are feelings they thought were safely locked away. Mia and Levi must decide if falling in love again is too big a risk—or if it will uncover a treasure of its own instead.Pick up your copy here...

Set in Carolina what could be finer. As with all of Hunters books I read though this book so fast, (I hate that I do that) I loved the romance and the family dynamics and the setting and the plot, Can you all tell I am a HUGE Hunter fan? I won't give anything away, I want you to buy the book and devour it just like I did.
All I can say is I can't wait for book number three in A Bluebell Inn Series.
5 stars two times. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
