Since reading APPLES SHOULD BE RED, I've developed a "thing" for Penny Watson. I am fairly certain she is aware of my admiration . . . to date no restraining orders have been filed.
For me, Penny is an author (one of a select few) leading the charge in redefining the contemporary romantic fiction genre. By tweaking the traditional/formulaic recipe, Penny has carved out her own niche with quality writing, the right amount of quirk, an acerbic sense of humor and damn good stories.
You are probably thinking, "If I have read one lumberjack story, I have read them all." I IMPLORE YOU TO THINK AGAIN! This novella is not a run-of-the-mill story of opposites attract. Marcus is a super-hot and brawny mountain man felled by a Flatlander. He unwillingly finds verbally sparring with the adorably snarky city slicker impossible to resist. Ami is a sassy (and brainy, too!) woman in search of a good cuppa. She endures all things "nature-y" in Vermont for her family only to discover the man of her dreams comes wrapped in facial hair and flannel. Watson has stacked LUMBERJACK IN LOVE with layers of sweet, sexy humor and dialogue and a quirky yet believable cast of major and supporting characters. It's flirty, fun, feel-good fiction about falling in love.

This was such a fun, quirky, enjoyable read! Penny Watson had me at lumberjack! Why aren't more romances written about the bearded man who is oooh so manly sexy. The characters were funny, sassy, and utterly charming. I already bought the first in the Klaus brothers series and can't wait to read that one next. I bet they'll be bearded too! Woot! Highly recommended read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

When you don't have time for a 400 page book but want a wonderful romance, let me recommend Ms. Watson's Lumberjack in Love. Truly a delightful treat. It's funny, sexy, has a "meaty" story, and is a perfect romance. This is a story I'll reread over and over. Marcus is delightful (beard and all!) and has a bulldog! Need I say more about Watson's scrumptous hero! Ami is a tornado that enters his life and changes it forever. Give yourself a treat this holiday season-you won't be sorry!!Was this review helpful?
