    Vacation turns serious

    If Laurel Morgan has a fault it's that she's too responsible. Taking care of the family business and acting as an extra parent to her younger sister Ginny has left Laurel feeling trapped. She regrets not having the chance to attend college and hasn't had a date since her Senior Prom. Now her rebellious sister appears headed down the wrong path. Laurel hopes a mountain vacation will be the chance to reconnect with her sister and change the direction Ginny's life is taking. The story takes place almost entirely in a remote mountain area with one small town nearby. Clayton does an excellent job in depicting the differences between small town and city life as well as the culture shock a city dweller might experience visiting such a place. The main characters, Laurel, Ginny, and Michael are all likeable with very different and distinct personalities. Laurel's seriousness is continually getting her in trouble as she misinterprets the intentions of others and provides plenty of laughs while doing so. Ginny's happy-go-lucky attitude provides an excellent counterpoint to Laurel. Michael, the local forest ranger, knows he's attracted to Laurel, but feels like everything he does to demonstrate this backfires. You'll vicariously experience a wide range of emotions from the sorrow of dealing with family tragedies to the joy of new love as these three attempt to work through their differences. This book was first released on Silhouette Romance (a Harlequin imprint) twenty years ago. The author updated it slightly so it would feel contemporary and modified the language to insure it was appropriate for younger readers (15 and up) for this eBook only re-release.

    Love comes in with a Stranger

    What a wonderfully delightful book....The story will take you on several twists and turns as misunderstanding turns into understanding. You will find humor, compassion and grief in this book. It is a tale of that grief turning into happiness and love just when it is least expected. It happens after finding the love of a stranger. I truly enjoyed this book and recommend to everyone, young and old alike.

    Note: I read this as an advanced copy.

    A Perfect Weekend Getaway Read

    Mountain Laurel, by author Donna Clayton, is great entertainment, upbeat and heartwarming. It's a book that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. I found Clayton's characters to be both human and realistic, and I loved the romance between hero and heroine. This is a story that will take you away from the day's stresses to a mountain retreat where anything is possible. For those who have ever been in love and want to feel that thrill again, don't miss Mountain Laurel.

    I paid 99 cents and that was too much money! The novella was written 22 years ago.

    The Characters are as enjoyable as the Story!

    From the moment I opened the book, every character in this story was real and enjoyable to follow! This is a must read for anyone who enjoys reading romance books.
