Kylie Shaw has found a home and a quiet place to work as an illustrator of children’s books in little Knights Bridge, Massachusetts. No one seems to know her here—and she likes it that way. She carefully guards her privacy in the refurbished nineteenth-century hat factory where she has a loft. And then California private investigator Russ Colton moves in.
Russ is in Knights Bridge to keep his client and friend, eccentric Hollywood costume designer Daphne Stewart, out of trouble. Keeping tabs on Daphne while she considers starting a small children’s theater in town doesn’t seem like a tough job until he runs into Kylie. Her opposition to converting part of the old hat factory into a theater is a challenge. But his bigger challenge is getting Kylie to let loose a little…like the adventurous characters she depicts in her work.
Kylie and Russ have more in common than they or anyone else would ever expect. They’re both looking for a place to belong, and if they’re able to let go of past mistakes and learn to trust again, they might just find what they need in Knights Bridge…and each other.
My Rating: 5 stars
The Spring at Moss Hill by Carla Neggers is one fascinating romance. One that comes tapping the characters on the shoulders unaware. Or at least one of them is captured unaware. Carla Neggers never disappoints her readers. There’s always a new surprising story filled with adventure, suspense, and romance. The Spring at Moss Hill will show readers a realistic way of how one man sweeps a woman straight into his arms and into his heart.
Inside The Spring at Moss Hill, readers will get to see a fresh personality in a leading female character. Kylie isn’t just the average of your mill character. She has a creative side to her that is highly remarkable. Yet, unlike the characters she creates she is more shy to the outer world. In her books is where she comes out more adventureous than she seems. But then there’s the good looking stranger who is tempted to show Kylie how to let her hair down. Something about Kylie lures Russ to her. Like a moth to a flame both Kylie and Ross can’t ignore what they feel. However, there’s never an easy simple way when it comes to falling in love. Each of Carla Neggers’s characters needs to get past their own issues before everything else can fall into place. The question is can they do it, or will they let a blooming romance fade? Overall, I have loved reading this beautiful, creative and intriguing novel. I highly recommend this read to readers everywhere.
