Overview

Welcome to the Aliso Creek Novella Series!

Liz, Gemma, Arie, Jess, and Drew have been best friends since creating “the Five” at Aliso Creek High School. But that was over ten years ago, and each is still trying to find that perfect someone . . . if perfect is even possible.

In fact, Liz Carlson will settle for a normal man. A normal man with a job, that is. Married twice, then divorced twice, Liz had her rose-colored glasses fall off and shatter on the ground a long time ago. Her main focus now is raising her six-year-old daughter and surviving long days at work on her feet as a hairdresser. When Sloane Branden answers her call for help, quite literally, Liz doesn’t even give him a second glance. She has sworn off dating for as many years as it takes, and it seems that Sloane has done the same after his own tumultuous marriage. But when Liz discovers that Sloane defies every stereotypical deadbeat she has dated, she might just find room in her heart and discover the third time’s the charm.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Julie Wright
Liz is a great heroine, a little jaded from past failed relationships and determined to make it on her own so she can be the kind of mom her daughter needs. But when Sloane shows up and acts like a decent man (the kind she hasn't ever met before), Liz discovers that taking a chance might be as wonderful as it is terrifying. A delightful tale of second (or third) chances at love. SO. Much. FUN.
Amazon - Rachel DeVaughn
I love all books by the author Heather Moore, so I was thrilled to see this new ebook release. I would describe it as a short romantic read. I loved it!! and I love that she is doing a series of these short reads in the future.
Amazon - Mindy Holt
This novella is very close to perfect. It has great characters that you care about quickly, and an all around fantastic story. Liz is an adorable character that had me smiling with her funny quirks. I laughed when she would text Gemma (part of the Five) for pep talks. I loved Sloane instantly.
Amazon - LuAnn Staheli
An absolutely delightful and clean read that will satisfy romance fans, and leave them wanting more. As a matter of fact, although the novella came to the perfect conclusion, I'm hoping Moore will someday revisit this couple and answer some of the questions I still have about their future together, and what happens to the nasty, mean ex-wife!
Amazon - Pam Sullivan
I so enjoy love stories that sweep me off my feet. Everything Heather writes I love! This is one of those stories that's all about the kissing!!

    Clean, cute, can read in one sitting.   According to Goodreads,

    Clean, cute, can read in one sitting.  

    According to Goodreads, this is the first book in the Aliso Creek Novella Series.  This is a short story (thus why it says "novella") that I was able to read in one evening.

    It is short, clean, cute, and sweet.  I will read more of the novellas in this series.

    Warnings: Some mature themes, including being a single parent and mention of someone being a nymphomaniac.

    This is a quick, cute romance with some fun characters. I liked

    This is a quick, cute romance with some fun characters.

    I liked the bond Liz has with Gemma. Distance doesn't seem to have hurt the friendship they formed back in high school, and Liz relies on Gemma quite a bit (their 911 text idea made me smile).

    I liked that Sloane was a bit of a knight in shinning armor (ok, a dripping faucet isn't a huge deal, but the way he took care of the problem and then got to know Liz and her daughter was sweet).

    Sloane's ex was not one of the fun characters, but she definitely added drama to the story.

    The downside to Third Time's the Charm (if you want to call it that) is that it is over so fast. I would have liked more time for Liz and Sloane to develop their relationship. And it would have been fun to learn more about "the Five".

    As far as content, I think there was one swearword, and the reason for Sloane's divorce was a bit shocking (although there aren't a lot of details about it).

    *3.5 stars. I received an eCopy of Third Time's the Charm in exchange for a review.
