Overview

My Kind of You by Tracy Brogan

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Brogan is back with a sweet, hilarious series about family, forgiveness, and what it means to go back home.

Emily Callaghan never expected to spend another summer on Wenniway Island. Yet here she is, back in her quaint northern Michigan hometown of Trillium Bay, divorced, flat broke, and dragging along her precocious twelve-year-old. It’s a simple arrangement: Emily, a house flipper, will renovate one of her grandmother’s rental properties in exchange for a much-needed loan. Once a wild child, the reformed Emily also hopes to remodel her reputation and show her family she’s all grown up.

But coming home is never simple. Emily’s dad is more distant than ever. Her younger sister is dating a much older man, and Emily’s worried it’s a mistake. The cottage remodel grows increasingly daunting. And then there’s handsome out-of-towner Ryan Taggert…

Ryan has his own family drama. A smart, ambitious land developer, he’s come to Wenniway to rescue his father from the grips of a new girlfriend and protect their family business. But he’s quickly distracted by gorgeous, witty Emily Callaghan.

There’s no denying the attraction between Emily and Ryan. But will their conflicting interests destroy any chance at love? Or will Emily finally get the chance to rebuild her life—and repair her heart?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have read a couple of books by Tracy Brogan before. I love writers that can write real characters! They seem like people you might know. The island community brought so many funny moments. Tracy writes with humor! I love that about her! I am all about the HEA, but I want some humor in my books too! The characters were very likeable. Emily & Ryan were meant to be from the moment they met in that airport! The daughter of Emily was so precious! And Mama owes her so much! I don't want to give away too much. This was a wonderful summer read. You can't go wrong taking this one along on vacation or a day at the beach! “I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.”

A small-town yummy contemporary romance with plenty of humor and a family focus... I loved it! My Kind of You by Tracy Brogan is a highly entertaining contemporary romance with a great island setting. It is the hilarious story of house flipper Emily Callaghan and land developer Ryan Taggert. As the story opens, we meet single mother Emily and Chloe, her daughter, as they are traveling to Wenniway Island, Emily’s hometown. It’s not a happy time for Emily. She is flat-out broke because a project of hers took a dive. She is also uncertain of her welcome once they arrive. When she was young, she had a wild streak that resulted in an impulsive marriage, a union which also gave her Chloe, Emily’s pride and joy. She hasn’t been home for the last seven years as she is estranged from her father and not close to her older sister. However, without an extra dime to her name, she has accepted her grandmother’s offer to renovate one of her rental properties. Emily fully intends to pay her grandmother back in full. On their last stop before reaching Wenniway Island, Emily and Chloe meet Ryan and end up sharing a taxi to the nearest town where they can catch the ferry to the island. While in route, they learn that Ryan is on his way to the island to save his rich father from the clutches of a gold-digging bimbo. When Emily and Ryan end up joining forces to break up Ryan’s father and his girlfriend, they discover sparks of their own. I really liked both Ryan and Emily. They are alike in so many ways. They are each driven and creative. When they put their minds together on Gigi’s project, they fed off each other’s ideas. Their chemistry flared from the beginning and the sparks only got stronger as they spent more time together. But, there were obstacles to any lasting relationship for them. Would they be able to overcome them to have a chance at a future together? There were many wonderful supporting characters. Emily’s grandmother was a hoot. I choked laughing when she admitted to being “good at burying men.” Chloe, Emily’s twelve-year-old precocious daughter, was a standout too. She liked Ryan from the moment they met and her matchmaking skills were on full display herein. In addition, there were the quirky characters who made up Emily’s work crew and Dmitri Krushnic, the man who is never without his beekeeping hat even when he’s nowhere near his bees. Amy McFadden is the narrator for My Kind of You. Her voice is crystal clear and easy to understand. She exuded the proper emotions and differentiated between the characters to where I had no issue discerning who was speaking at any one time. That said, I didn’t care for Amy’s male voices - only because they sounded too female to me; I got used to her interpretation as the story progressed. Other than that, she did a great job and I look forward to hearing her again. I might even pick up this book to listen to again sometime. My Kind of You is a sweet romance with some heat and oodles of comical overtones. It’s also a family saga that emphasizes forgiving and reconciling. I listened to the last fifteen minutes of this audio at home in my garage because I just had to hear the ending before exiting my car. The ending was a complete surprise, until the very last. I highly recommend My Kind of You to anyone who enjoys small-town yummy contemporary romances with plenty of humor and a family focus. My full review is posted at Reading between the Wines Book Club. Please check it out there!

Emily Chambers felt like a failure when she returned to her childhood home, on Wenniway Island. As far as anyone knew, though, Emily was a successful business woman, who came back to the Island to renovate her grandmother’s cottage. Emily’s grandmother was the only person who knew, that Emily couldn’t make ends meet, without borrowing money. Ryan Taggert of Taggert Property Management Company traveled from California to Wenniway Island. He had a company project to complete, but he was also there to check on his father. Apparently, his father, who was the CEO of the company, was infatuated with a woman, more than half his age and was talking nonsense. After being on the island for a while, though, Ryan could understand his father’s attraction to it. Ryan liked the Island himself. He especially liked Emily Chambers. In fact, he couldn’t stop thinking about her. But, Emily was not a complication, which Ryan could afford. He had to stay focused, complete his project and get his father off the Island. But, life doesn’t always work out the way we plan it to. Sometimes it works out even better. My Kind of You is a sweet story, so captivating that I stayed up late just to finish it. It’s a well-written humorous romantic tale, with likable characters and realistic dialogue. I loved it. Thank you, Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

This is the first book in Ms Brogan’s new series , Trillium Bay. A town in Michigan filled with quirky, nosy dwellers . The story centers around Emily Chambers, who has returned home after a divorce , with no money and hopes of mending fences with her father. She wants to renovate an old house as a means to get a loan. Ryan, is a land developer , in business with his brothers. He has been sent to the town to check on his father’s girlfriend’s intensions, who is Emily’s sister, and protect the family business. In the midst of family loyalties, these two are attracted to each other. It’s a story about family relationships, or lack thereof, about forgiveness , going back home in hopes of a do-over and about love. Mix in some laughter, and you have a winner. I was gifted this book by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Loved, loved this book!!! Emily, single mom, broke has returned home for the summer to Trillium Bay to help flip a house. The last thing she was expecting to meet a man. Ryan arrives to Trillium Bay for family issues. They first meet in route to the island. They both have family issues and are only going to be there for a short time, why start something you can't finish. They soon can't fight their mutual attraction. But the island is small, everyone knows everyone's business, love it. This book will have you laughing out loud, and you might even shed a few tears. Lots of family drama with both characters. Both characters are very likable. Oh so good. The typical small Michigan town that I loved vacationing in growing up, brought back so many memories. Small town homemade fudge, I could almost smell it myself. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book!!
