After a rocky start, wood nymph Laurel and bear-shifter Aiden have made a happy home together in Nocturne Falls. Sure, Laurel is still getting over the trauma of being stalked and almost killed by an old boyfriend, and Aiden keeps having nightmares about his time as an NYPD Detective, but overall, they have a calm, peaceful life. Until their relatives enter the picture. Before they know it, they're on a road trip to Nashville – accompanied by Laurel's sister, Aurora, and Aiden's buddy, Wade – in order to prove that Aiden's country music superstar father – who he didn't even know was his father – didn't commit the crime he's being accused of. All Aiden and Laurel want is time alone together, but that's not happening anytime soon. Can they save Aiden's father and wrangle everyone else into shape before they lose their minds? Or could all the family drama push them over the edge?

I love returning authors to the Nocturne Falls Universe. We get to check in on old friends or as the case with this story, have a new adventure with them. The characters are well developed and amusing. Another delightful afternoon read.
It was short but a good story.
What a treat to once again get to read about Bailey the talking dog. This was such a delightful fast read. I couldn't put it down. I was a little disappointed that we never got Aiden's story about what happened in NYC when he was a cop that caused his nightmares. I'm hoping the next book will tell. This wasn't anything that took away from the book. It was just a side story but I'm one of those readers that can't stand to wait and likes to sneak peeks at endings before the book is over lol. I want more of this author's stories in NFU!
