Saved by the blog!
This just in, fair readers! Chic and stunning, that gorgeous new woman about town is none other than our very own little Ellienow ElleOwens. She's a far cry from the frumpy, bookish student we used to know, but then, living in Italy will do that to a girl! Still, this blogger can't forget the infamous video that caused her to leave!
Apparently Miss Elle has been spotted with yummy contractor Cam Dumont but we thought her heart belonged to his little brother. Are Cam and Elle a new couple? They were seen cooling their passions in the bay in April! If this is love, let's hope she's swimming with the right brother. The Bayside Blogger will keep you posted.

'Falling for the Right Brother' by by Kerri Carpenter is book One in the "Saved by the Blog" series. This is the story of Cam and Elle with about 225 pages. Elle has just returned to Bayside, Virginia after going off to College then doing a Tour of Italy. The first person Elle sees is Cam who is Jasper's older brother. Jasper was Elle High School crush and she had done something very embarrassing when she attempted to let him know how she felt. So much so that her dad had encouraged her to leave the small town for a while to start fresh. Cam has come to pick her up at the airport to help her father out. Elle father has cancer but is still try to stay busy working some. Cam is taken back about how much Elle has changed. No longer is she wearing loose jeans and shirt and doesn't appear the 'bookworm' type anymore. Elle has waken feeling in him that no other women has. This was a sweet romance that I enjoyed and could see myself wanting to read this a second time. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
I really liked this series starter! I think having the blog posts of the anonymous Bayside Blogger was a good way to begin the chapters and her postscript at the end of the book had me even more curious as to who she actually was. Elle--don't call her "Ellie"!--made her fair share of missteps, but she was a likable heroine, and being with Cam helped her realize a few things, especially with as far as where she wanted to be in her life. The whole thing about having feelings for Jasper ten years ago and having feelings for Cam now didn't play out the way I was expecting and thank goodness for that because I love when an author manages to surprise me and keep me on my ten toes! Cam was such an easy male main character to like. He knew what and who he wanted and while he had certain feelings of guilt for choices he had made in the past, he still chose to stay the course and stand by his decisions. I also liked Jasper and am looking forward to seeing who he's going to be partnered with when his time comes to share his story. As to how our mystery blogger will play matchmaker yet again? Well, I'm sure she'll keep things more than interesting once more. Falling for the Right Brother was a great start to the Saved by the Blog series, and if you're looking for a small town romance with it's own creative twist, give this one a whirl. It gets four stars. ♥
Who says you can’t go home again? In the kick off of Kerri Carpenter’s “Saved by the Blog” series, we meet a hometown girl trying to redeem her reputation and finding love when she least expects it! The town is cozy and the characters are fun to spend time with. Looking forward to reading more of the series! Elle Owens is back home in Bayside, Virginia after years of living in Italy pursuing her art career. She left all those years ago utterly humiliated over high school drama, and now the busybody town blogger is stirring it all up again. She can’t catch a break! Cameron Dumont is the older brother of the guy she crushed on in high school, and while she should be steering clear of the whole family amidst all this gossip, she can’t resist the pull Cams seems to have on her. He’s really easy to talk to and super sweet. Was she lusting after the wrong brother all this time?
The appeal of Kerri Carpenter is that for every heartache, there proves to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Beyond the sadness lies a chance to smile again. Falling for the Right Brother never takes itself too seriously, yet manages to reiterate a number of adages that may seem cliche, but still ring true. The most important one: In order to achieve true happiness, acceptance of who you are is key. Cam and Elle proved that Ms. Carpenter can still wrap readers around her finger, with her trusty magic pen.
What can I say about this book to show how much I enjoyed it? My favorite thing is that I was entertained from the very beginning. I had an idea about the concept from reading the back cover info and the inside did not disappoint. I liked that it was a wonderful and witty mix of classic favorites of mine such as Saved by the Bell, Gossip Girl and the movie Sabrina. I've read other books by Kerri Carpenter and she has this fabulous laugh out loud humor that comes through in her stories but also gives you some very touching moments. And the secrecy of who this Bayside Blogger is! I loved that aspect too. It's a definite romance that will take you away and leave you feeling really wonderful and ready for the next installment! Highly recommend if you're looking for a wee bit of escapism and entertainment in your day.
