Overview

"Perry is a storyteller, weaving magic wherever she goes, much to the delight of her millions of fans." – The Literary Shed

Gwendolyn Pierce has a secret. A big secret.

No one knows that the gourd artist is really the missing wine heiress who ran away fourteen years before. And that's the way Gwen likes it. No paparazzi recording her every mistake, no stern family disapproving of her life. She has her art studio in Laurel Heights and lives in peaceful bliss.

Until she meets Rick Clancy.

The last person she should get involved with is a private investigator who finds her as suspicious as he does sexy. Only she can't help herself, and she can't help wondering if she can trust him with her secrets--and her heart.

Meet the Author

Kate has tangoed at midnight with a man in blue furry chaps, dueled with flaming swords in the desert, and strutted on bar tops across the world and back. She’s been kissed under the Eiffel Tower, had her butt pinched in Florence, and been serenaded in New Orleans. But she found Happy Ever After in San Francisco with her Magic Man.

Kate's the bestselling author of the Laurel Heights Novels, as well as the Family and Love and Guardians of Destiny series. She's been translated into several languages and is quite proud to say she's big in Slovenia. All her books are about strong, independent women who just want love.

Most days, you can find Kate in her favorite café, working on her latest novel. Sometimes she's wearing a tutu. She may or may not have a jeweled dagger strapped to her thigh...

Another charming read by Kate Perry. This was another cute and charming read by Kate Perry. I've been waiting for the pairing between Gwen and Rick and this book did not disappoint. In previous books you could definitely sense the chemistry between these two. Yes, they was some hostility between them, but there was definite sparks flying. I loved both Gwen and Rick together. Not only were their scenes together hot but just I loved the dynamics between them. Gwen is a local gourd artist and has always been a less forth coming about herself and her past. She gets along with everyone with the exception of Rick Clancy. Gwen knows that if she has intention of keeping her past a secret she needs to keep away from the sexy private eye. No one can find out that she's actually the long lost Grape Princess. If they do, her quite life that she's come to treasure will be at an end. Rick knows that Gwen is hiding something. He's not exactly sure what it is, but his gut is telling him there is more to her story and his gut is never wrong. So he begins to observe Gwen in the hopes of finding what she's hiding. But the more time he spends observing her and talking with her, Rick is finding her charm hard to resist. Not only is she charming, but she's just so cute and sexy. I loved watching these two finally let down their walls and get together. The chemistry between them is great and they are both hot together. Like I said before, I really enjoyed this book and I am really enjoying Miz Perry's Laurel Heights series and I can't wait for more. **ARC copy provided by Author**

I really loved this book. It was sweet and had it's own personality. I have started reading a lot of romance driven novels lately and they can certainly fit into a very small little box at times. This one gave me the ending and steam that I love in this kind of books but certainly didn't get boring in between. Gwen made me want to be more comfortable being myself.

Gwen’s back story was a nice original twist in the romance genre. I picked this one up because of it and was not disappointed.

I have truly enjoyed reading previous books in the Laurel Heights series, and it seems they just keep getting better!  It's very satisfying that the author brings her charming lead characters along, weaving them into subsequent tales; have you ever read a really good novel and just hated when it ended, because you weren't ready to say "goodbye" to the characters you had grown to love? With Kate Perry's novels, no need! They are there, living their happy/sad/normal/exciting lives and being loyal friends to each other. -   In Looking For You, the heroine Gwen just wants to create her gourd art and keep her past at bay, but circumstances conspire to 'out' her eventually, and she must cope with the fallout. An intertwining story follows Camille, the reluctant journalist, who wants to escape her mother's expectations and find her own voice. She is the catalyst for Gwen's exposure to the public, but her regrets in having done so also change her life for the better. Kate Perry always delivers an engrossing story, but beyond that, I'm impressed by her understanding of human nature: how much we seek the approval of loved ones in our lives; how deeply we sometimes just need to be hugged and accepted; how passion can evolve between two unlikely people, who are just listening to their hearts and ignoring any societal attitudes about their coupling. - Don't miss this wonderful book! ~

Gwen and Rick struggle against an attaction that is stronger than they care to admit. Two complex characters with a lot of depth, you fall in love with them from the start of the book. The story has the perfect amount of heartbreak, hope, and passion. I had never heard of Kate Perry two weeks ago, but now can say she is one of my favorite authors. For those of you who have been reading this genre for decades as I have, you understand how hard it is to find new authors that this level of quality stories -- and aren't a one-hit-wonder. Kate - you rock!

CLOSE TO YOU by Kate Perry is a good quick read once your mind gets around the given name of TREAT and not wanting to make him a TRENT! Eve & Treat make a good couple once his mother is called out on her hateful behavior. Once she apologizes and makes some changes in her life another romance begins to bloom. Since I have already read Perry's 3rd book in this series, I am looking forward to 4 and 5. Sure hope one of them is about Anna (Freya's sister in an earlier book) and Max the chef. This book is a 5 star for me. Hope you like it as much as I did.

I am really loving the Laurel Heights series!! I have read all four books. This was a good book but too short. Did not like how it ended! I believe Rick and Gwen deserve a little more!!! What happens between Camille and Dylan, is this your next book! ;)
