Welcome to the Land of Bourbon and Bluegrass...Welcome to Bourbon Springs, Kentucky...

She’s the love of his life.

She’s also the woman he left at the altar.

When Prent Oakes, former playboy and wealthy half-owner of Commonwealth Cooperage, Kentucky’s oldest barrel-making business, left Dr. Miranda Chaplin at the altar over two years ago, he was sure it was over.

Except since that day Miranda had never been able to tell him to get out of her life. Undaunted and with the faintest hope, Prent pursued the fiancee he abandoned and knows he doesn’t deserve.

Just as he thinks his win-her-back campaign has finally been successful, their tentative efforts to revive their love are threatened by Prent’s past, problems in their professional lives, and the disapproval of family—as well as a secret Miranda has harbored since their wedding day.

There’s no doubt the heat still burns between them—but will their love be resurrected from the ashes or will they both be left burned?

Toast and Char is the eighth book in the Bourbon Springs Series.

To marry, or not to marry. Miranda and Prent were headed to the altar when Prent did the unthinkable yet Miranda, well, she had her own doubts. This is a journey of 2 people deeply in love but both fearing the idea of commitment. As much as they loved each other, they both had some growing up to do about themselves before being truly ready to commit to marriage. This is an honest look at the struggle to be happy with yourself before being happy with the love of your life. All the while, we get to interact with the full cast of Bourbon Springs as Miranda and Prent’s journey intertwines with the whole crew giving us updates on their journeys. Truly a wonderful series that lets you immerse yourself into a town as if you lived with these characters.

It continues to amaze me that at eight stories into the series, Ms Bramseth manages to keep the story and its characters fresh and exciting, never loosing its edge and draw to the reader. Prentice and Miranda's story is filled with heart sighing, toe curling romance, along with angst, drama, greed, and suspense. The author orchestras carefully thought out plots and subplots without them being confusing or too busy. The emotions that flow between Prent and Miranda are deeply felt and have definitely left a lasting impression...even after the end of the story. I have to say that this HEA is the most "pull at the heart strings" of any story I have read in quite some time. The story was tied up very nicely, leaving a smile on my heart. There is one story left in the series, Drake and Cara's story, it will be bittersweet to read that last one. The characters of Bourbon Springs have become like family and friends and will sorely be missed...though I can definitely see myself re-reading all the books in the series over and over...they are just that good. This book was provided by the author for my honest review.

Wow!!! It seems like every time I read one the Bourbon Springs books I am constantly blown away. I keep thinking, how can the next one be better. And every time I'm pleasantly surprised. Toast and Char is a poignant story of lost and found love. Ms. Bramseth has a real gift of writing! Her character development is superb. You are rooting for Prent & Miranda meanwhile you can't believe hateful and cruel Kurt is to his nephew. This like all the other books in this series is a must read. You won't be disappointed

This is the book I have been waiting for since book 1 when there was a vague reference to Miranda being left at the alter by Prent. It is a standalone book but its also book 8 in the series and there are a lot of history and characters so you should really read it in order. This story is about Miranda, she is the town gynecologist. She was engaged to Prent and almost married him almost 3 years before. Prent basic issue is he always felt like a loser. He was wealthy but his uncle made him feel horrible, added to that his uncle controls the purse strings too. So he just felt Miranda was too good for him. Miranda just loved Prent partly because he brought a fun and lightness to her life. The thing is Prent was cowardly about how he cancelled the wedding and immediately he was sorry. So for the last few years he has been trying to get her back. This story starts when Miranda having some money issues with her practice decides to join the distilleries and cooperage (which Prent works and owns) in a free clinic for their employees. Which means a lot more time spent with Prent. This book had lots of surprises along the way for both Miranda and Prent and I am not spoiling any. I will say this book was worth the wait. I loved seeing all the characters. Getting to know Drake and Cara who is the next couple and I loved Maisie and Cord. I totally see a romance with their names on it. I also loved that both Prent and Miranda stayed true to each other. In the years they were apart they stayed single.

Both had secrets, both had fears, both had insecurities, and both truly loved one another two and a half years before when their wedding was called off. Second chances…can they work? Dr. Miranda Chaplin and Prentice “Prent” Oakes III will find out before the end of this novel. Prent has never given up on the idea that one day he and Miranda will be married. He has constantly worked toward that goal and at the beginning of this book his efforts are beginning to pay off with the two beginning to test the waters of a potential future relationship. It is not smooth sailing for them. She has financial issues to deal with and he has the uncle from hades to contend with. There are other unexpected twists and turns the couple has to contend with that can bring them closer together or tear them apart. The fact that both Prent and Miranda are older and hopefully wiser should stand them in good stead as they dip their toes in the water that could lead them to a happily ever after. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Prent and Miranda are wonderful together. The story is well written and pages were turned rapidly as I read to find out how the story would end. Bourbon Springs is a place I wouldn’t mind living and it was fun to catch up with some of the characters of previous books. I can’t believe there is only one more book in the series and hope that there will be future books from this author in the future. Thank you to the author for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Mention Bourbon Springs and I am in the front row. Ms. Bramseth brings love, loss and liquor to the table with this dramatic series. Toast and Char (Book 8) is a story centered around regret, secrets and second chances. Miranda and Prent were young and in love until an act of desperation destroyed their chance at happiness. Will they succeed at regaining everything that was lost? Jennifer Bramseth is skilled in telling true to life stories with the dedication and emotion that easily captivates her readers. With this series she holds nothing back and that is what I find so appealing.
