The sample worked fine for me. I already bought and read the book. I loved it! I'm so excited that Barbara Freethy is writing a new series. The Callways are an intriguing family and  Aiden and Sara are an awesome couple. If you love romance, connected books and lots of emotion, you'll love this book!

Romantic with a touch of mystery and I loved all the emotion that Barbara put into the story. The characters really come to life. Already looking forward to the second book in the series!

Before I started reading On a Night Like this by Barbara Freethy I assumed that it would be a standard love story. I could not have been more wrong. Book 1 in the Callaways series tells the love story of Aiden and Sara. It also follows the two characters as they search for answers within their own personal lives. Aiden is searching for the answers surrounding circumstances of the death of a close friend and Sara is trying to figure out her relationship with her last living relative. Her father. Their quest for answers causes Aiden and Sara to confront their feelings for each other. But are their feelings for each other strong enough to conquer the answers they find? Or will it tear them apart? On a Night Like This is a contemporary love story with suspense thrown in. I found this book to be an entertaining and emotionally charged read.

Barbara Freethy is one of the best. If you haven't read her other books, try them too. This is the beginning of a new series and I can't wait for #2.

4.5 stars! I love Barbara Freethy's books, she is an excellent story teller and keeps you engaged from beginning to end.  I am so excited for a new series. I loved the Callaway family! Sara and Aiden were fun and interesting, as individuals and as a couple. I am excited to read about the rest of the Callaway family.  Freethy did a great job of giving enough of a glimpse of each family member but still focusing on Aiden and Sara. Loved it!

Great story that has lots of twists and turns. Love that Barbara is doing another connected family book series. Absolutely loved the Angel's Bay books and am looking forward to more stories about the Callaway clan.

Not very impressed. Good story. Too redundant. How many times do we need to be told how smart Sara is or how handsome Aiden is. We get it . Just get on with the story. Hopefully will get better as the series goes along. Plan on reading the second book since the story is a good.

Oh the heartbreak this book brings it is really a story inside a story with two people who are torn apart by family and friends. I found it very easy to relate to Sarah having a father a lot like hers. Never being good enough always trying to be the best but never able to make him proud. Unlike her I said the heck with it at a younger age. She sticks it out demanding answers that won’t be easy to deal with. What a very good start to what looks like it will be a wonderful series. Aiden finds his self in a place where he feels the world is against him and he feel they might be right. Unable to remember all that happened that day when he lost his best friend he turns away from those that love him to try to put the pieces together. He is a very kind hearted man who takes the blame for many things in his childhood that got him in trouble. He really has a weakness but you won’t find out about that until later on. He loves action and adventure which is one reason he pick the job he picked. He gets high off of danger, excitement and thrills those same things that took his friends life. He has to take a step back regroup and rethink his life and how the information he finds out will not only affect him but those around him. Was he the cause of his friend’s death or was it an accident? My heart went out to so many characters but none as much as it did for Sarah. Her father I wanted so much to slap for the way he treated her. From the first page I wanted so much to jerk her out of them take away her pain and tell her how worthy she was. It seems there are secrets that will come to light and rock her world more than anyone can guess. She is a very strong wise woman in so many ways. Now face to face with her young love from the past she must put it behind her and move forward but one look and she isn’t sure she can to that. Only home for a few days that is until something happens that keeps her longer she finds her life intertwined again with Aiden’s. As they go on the hunt for the truth working together they just might find more truth to their emotions than either of them are ready for. The story moves pretty steady giving you a very touching romance. Their past comes to ahead when questions are asked, emotions are strong as things get out of hand again with one step forward and two back something has to give. As they each deal with their own issues they are pulled together as sparks fly, passion gets ignited and flames start a fire they can’t put out. Things will come to a head leaving them with a sense of peace as well as uncertainty as to the outcome. I really liked the Aiden’s family how real they are, how caring, loving and supportive they are but at the same time they have doubts, fight, but always come together and circle as one when need be. The ending is really good but leaves a few unanswered questions that I feel will be told throughout the rest of the series. The next one is on Emma I can’t wait to see how this turns out. Hopefully we will learn more about the fires and the nun as well as what granny was talking about. I have a feel this series is going to hold a lot of secrets that will keep us hook, on our toes and spell bound. I enjoyed how the author builds up their romance giving us the past history the why and just how painful it was. One doing what they thought was best leaving the other with painful memories that will last a lifetime. I like the mystery of both the stories from Aiden finding out the truth about his frie

I understand that the story is a way to get to know all the family members but there was nothing there. The story went around circles
