Mangrove Stories

It’s a lovely little life Kelly Seaton leads. He’s got his own landscaping business, a nice little house, and his best friend, Cosimo Renaldi, and Coz’s goofball family who have adopted Kelly as their own. Sure, it’s a little lonely at night, but it’s a sweet deal, and Kelly can’t chance ruining it by letting on that he wants more—has always wanted more—with Coz.

Then Kelly’s past comes to town, bringing bad memories and hurt feelings that start to break Kelly down, and Coz just doesn’t understand why Kelly won’t let him be the support and strength that Kelly’s always been for him. They’ve already been through war, Coz’s devastating injury, and starting new careers in Mangrove, Florida. Why shouldn’t they face their chaotic pasts and build their future of quiet nights… together?

Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog QUIET NIGHTS is the second book in the Mangrove series by Mary Calmes. Again, it’s freaking adorable and charming, which gets me wondering if Calmes could ever write a book where I don’t immediately love the characters. I don’t know what it is but she’s able to infuse her characters with so much personality that despite their flaws and the mistakes they make in the book, you love them. At only 80 pages, I thought this book would just be an okay read. I didn’t see how it was possible to fit a full-blown romance, have conflict and also build that romance so that it’s believable by the end, but MARY CALMES DOES IT. First of all, the introduction to the characters is downright hilarious. To be honest, the whole book is hilarious. Between Kelly running away from the man he thought he loved, to Coz getting all angry at him and then Coz’s mother Annie talking about her renewed sex life, there’s so much to love about this book. I was literally laughing so hard I had to put the book down. Calmes really knows how to have fun with her books and I think it comes across in her characters. They’re all so wonderful to read about. Kelly and Coz have been friends for a very long time and they are so close that Coz’s family considers Kelly to be one of them. While everyone else thinks they will eventually get together, Kelly and Coz are sort of blindsided by it. Oh, the attraction and chemistry is there for sure, but neither one was willing to risk their friendship in case it all fell to pieces. So while their get together is a bit rushed, it was an easy decision for them because it’s something they wanted for a long time. Now from the beginning Kelly has a conflict with Britton Lassiter, one his previous conquests. It’s kind of funny to read about what really happened and what Kelly made himself believe to be true – it’s all just a big misunderstanding, but makes Coz and Kelly’s union that much more easier so while a bit weak, it does open up an opportunity to tell Lassiter’s story as well. I can’t wait! *Review Copy provided by publisher

This book is a prime example of one of the reasons why I've been asking readers to try to include the#of pages in their reviews.I know alot of readers are kind enough and have been doing it already.I'm not saying the people that don't are unkind,I've just started myself and if more people would do it that could help to decide to purchase the book or not.Sorry you got screwed(1 below person) but it's nice that l'm not writing OH WELL, THAT MAKES TWO OF US. Thank you so much.GRANNY B.

Good story and nice continuation from Blue Days (although both can be read alone), but be aware it's a novella. As in, 56 pgs. I love this author and tend to get almost anything by her, but $3.99 for 56 pgs seems a bit ridiculous.
