Review: Home for the Baby's Sake by Christine Rimmer (Blog Tour)

Book Description

He’d do anything for his son…including returning to the town he left behind. 

Valentine Bay’s the perfect place for real estate developer Roman Marek to raise his infant son. But when he snaps up the charming local theater, he doesn’t bargain for tempestuous director Hailey Bravo. Hailey won’t let Roman wreck the thing she holds most dear—and she’s certainly gotten under Roman’s notoriously thick skin. As the duo spar and sparks fly, Roman’s surprised to find that Hailey’s the perfect missing piece for his family. But how can he convince her that this partnership’s for keeps?

My Review 

Roman Marek returns to his hometown of Valentine Bay, Oregon with his infant son. He figures it’s the perfect place to raise his child. His mother is even there to lend a helping hand. She convinces him to purchase the local theater, although she can’t seem to convince him not to tear it down and build a hotel.  However, for now, the theater still stands and is operating. 

Hailey Bravo is quite involved in the small theater and it’s productions. She’s determined to stop Roman from destroying something that is so important to her. She never expected to be attracted to the new owner. 

Roman and Hailey have a hard time fighting their attraction and the sparks fly high between these two. Their chemistry is strong from the beginning. Christine Rimmer did a wonderful job of creating two endearing characters as well as a town filled with realistic characters. She immediately transported me to Valentine Bay. 

This was a quick read for me. It’s a heartwarming, sweet read with a touch of spice. It’s filled with characters I truly cared about. 

This is the 8th book in the The Bravos of Valentine Bay series. It’s the first one I read, although many years ago I read another Bravo book, but it was from one of the previous Bravos series. The Bravos have been around for a long time in the romance world. Christine Rimmer has been one of my favorite romance authors since I read the first Bravo book in the 1990’s. It was before I started blogging so I don’t even remember which one it was.  Although members of the Bravo family show up in this one, this is Roman and Hailey's story.  It really didn't matter if I hadn't read the previous books.

This wont be my last Bravo book. Home for the Baby’s Sake swept me away and provided me with many relaxing hours. A “feel good” type of book.  I need more of them on my reading list.
