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 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.
