Long Simmering Spring is a great mix of intrigue and angst, complimenting a really sweet second-chance love story. - Full review available on BookTrib or RomanticReadsandSuch on Wordpress

This was a great story because it kept you guessing and the characters were wonderful. You get so invalued in the story and wish things like that would happen to you in your life. Very romantic and it is the kind of book you want to read on a rainy day.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

For the past few days, I have been reading Long Simmering Spring by Elisabeth Barrett, which happens to be the third book in the Star Harbor series. While in the story we still continue with the drug problem that is troubling Star Harbor, we also get to know Cole Grayson a little better.
Cole is the sherif of Star Harbor and suffers from PTSD. Yet, he has done a very good job hiding it from the fine people of Star Harbor. Well, Cole has always had the hots for a certain doctor and finally finds away to get to Julie Kensington. Julie on the other hand doesn't really trust Cole, because all she remembers is the bad boy of Star Harbor. Cole tries his hardest to get Julie to understand that he's not the same guy as he was in high school.
I do like Cole, he's a pretty good guy always looking out for the good people of Star Harbor. I must say that's an excellent quality in sherif. Now Julie is a very independent woman. She feels like she doesn't really need anyone in her life. While everyone else in Star Harbor believes she works too hard and needs a social life. I really do like how Cole and Julie start to hang out and build a relationship. It's funny how each of the Grayson boys seem to gravitate to strong independent women and Julie fits the build.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. I love that how all the stories really tie together. I can't wait for Val's book. I wonder if they will be able get rid of the drug problem in Star Harbor. I hope so. I also wonder who's going to be Val's match. Julie and Cole are great together. Here's the bottom line: If you love a series that ties together, I would suggest checking out the Star Harbor series. However, if you have been following the the series and you like damage heroes you might love Cole and should read Long Simmering Spring.

The small town feel is prominent and the romance is steady and strong, creating a bond that is both uplifting and inspiring. ~ Under the Covers
In the third book to the Star Harbor series, Barrett presents readers with the sexy new sheriff, Cole Grayson. Cole suffers from PTSD from his time in the military and the hours he has spent in Boston’s police force also doesn’t help matters greatly. As a result, he’s a very reserved character, but that doesn’t mean he is completely toned down.
Physician, Julie Kensington knows just how potent Cole Grayson’s presence is. As a woman who is driven and has her eyes set on her career, even Julie cannot keep her eyes off the hot new sheriff.
Julie and Cole are very similar in personality. They are both quite reserved and this makes for a more toned down read. It’s mellow ad sweet and the whole way through, it feels like a blissful escape from reality.
The one thing that slowed down the book was actually their personalities, but I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing. In the beginning of the book, Julie is not ready to be in a relationship. She holds back so much that it sort of impedes the natural progression of the relationship, but slowly, she opens up and allows Cole in. Again, this is character growth so I don’t see it as a negative thing as much as it’s just a different taste from the previous books. However, Cole doesn’t just jump in when he gets the chance either. His PTSD keeps me reserved and the character’s core personalities really make for an interesting read because how can two similar people with trust issues really find love that is lasting?
The question is answered well and while not my favorite of the series, I do believe that readers will still enjoy this latest serving from Barrett. The small town feel is prominent and the romance is steady and strong, creating a bond that is both uplifting and inspiring. It makes me look forward to the next book in the series.
