It’s easy to see why Hallmark movies are so very popular to women who long for romance in their lives, and those who already have it but love to celebrate it. Finding that special someone gives even the simplest thing so much more pleasurable to experience when you’re with someone who truly understands you, faults and all. Poppy is somewhat of a misfit. She can’t seem to find her place in the world until she becomes a nanny for Ryan’s daughter Zoe and his son Zach. Through trial and error, and even some tears, these four lonely people come together during Autumn and make the days leading up to Halloween the most wonderful time of the year. This story is entertaining, engaging and a perfect way to celebrate my favorite season of the year. And on a side note, the colorful pumpkin illustrations throughout the text made me wish it was October instead of the dog days of Summer. I read an early copy of this book and all opinions expressed in this voluntary review are completely my own.

I know they say to never judge a book by it's cover, but feel free to judge this one by it's cover because October Kiss is just as good as the cover is gorgeous. This was the perfect book for fall! It made me ready for caramel apples, pumpkin patches, and to see the leaves changing colors. It was a sweet, funny, and enchanting story. I finished reading this book after only a few hours because I couldn't put it down. I definitely recommend that you pick this book up!

Poppy just needs to find her niche and Ryan needs to spend more time with his children. A really sweet story that keeps your attention - loved the children. Can they help each other find their way?

I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review Poppy Summerall is a young woman with an enthusiastic outlook on life who is having a hard time figuring out where she fits in the "adult" world. She's tried working in a dental office, a pizza parlor, and as a yoga instructor but hasn't been able to fully commit to any of them. As she tells her sister, Megan, "I may not know what I want, but I know what I don't want." Widower Ryan Larson knows exactly what he wants. He wants a Japanese conglomerate to buy his app technology, so he can secure the future for his family. Nothing can distract him from his goal - not even his children, Zoe and Zach. Ryan desperately needs a nanny as he is working long hours, and the children have already chased away several. Megan knows about Ryan's situation and believes Poppy is the right person for the job. After all, she relates to and handles her nephews with ease. "Maybe all she needed was some time with children to turn her into a full-fledged adult." Poppy is young at heart and connects with Zoe and Zach through the fun of Halloween. She brings life, love, and laughter back to their home and helps Ryan reconnect with his children. Poppy and Ryan realize they both want the same thing - family and each other. October Kiss is a sweet little gem of a book that was enjoyable and heartwarming. Kristen Ethridge's writing paints vivid images of fall in the Northwest and the joys of the holiday season. I would definitely recommend it.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. READER BEWARE: If you are waiting eagerly for fall to start and to be done with the incessant rain and are ready for apple cider, pumpkin spice everything, this book is for you. You will want a blanket, a fire, some apple spice cake and a family recipe of pumpkin soup that you can find at the end of this book. This book is based upon the 2015 movie called October Kiss (that I did not see, but will be stalking the Hallmark Channel now for) that aired on the Hallmark Channel. The main character, Poppy was played by Ashley Williams (who most recently made an appearance in James Patterson's series Instinct) and Ryan was played by Sam Jaeger (who most recently appeared in Reverie). We begin the book with Poppy, being the stereotypical Millennial, experiencing difficulties with the things like adulting, paying bills on time and everyday grown up things. As Poppy is teaching yoga, she forgets the name of one of the most common poses and realizes that teaching yoga was not going to be the career path for her. We are then taken to her paying job which is an utter disaster, only to be taken to a blind date that is another disaster. This poor girl just cannot catch a break. At 28, Poppy is reeling with what to do with herself until her sister Megan pointed out how good she was with her two sons. Megan works her magic and hooks Poppy up with a father in need of a Nanny, Mr. Ryan Larson and his two children, Zoe and Zach. Ryan is a workaholic working on an app. Zoe and Zach can be compared to the evil children in Mary Poppins that chase every last nanny away until Mary arrives and gives them the discipline that they need. Poppy has an abysmal first day with the children and basically quits at the end of the day, but Ryan talks her into staying until the end of the month. A lot happens in a month and we are taken through the journey as Poppy bonds with the children, experiences more conflict. This books ends in a flair and after reading this book all in one day, I now have it set to tape on my DVR. I cannot wait for my apple cider and apple spiced everything. I am not a big fan of pumpkin spice, but pumpkin pie here we come!

This was a very sweet autumn romance about Poppy and Ryan. Poppy becomes the nanny to Ryan’s two children Zach and Zoe. Poppy is a really sweet woman who is feeling a little lost in life. Ryan is a really sweet man who is trying to juggle between being a single dad while working and still making time for his kids. I really loved this book. I instantly fell in love with Zach and Zoe. For me they made the book so much more than just a romance book. They made me laugh and smile with everything they did. I loved this book from start to finish and I am really hoping that the movie does it justice. Thanks Net Galley for the chance. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.
