Starlight Harbor's Sweetheart has had enough...

Lyra Grigor is the easy going, sweet, smile-at-everyone owner of The Sweetest Things.  When an annoying travel site puts Starlight Harbor on their Top Ten Tacky Tiny Towns list for the fourth year running, she knows it's time to give the writer a bit of spicy tart instead of a teaspoon of sugar.

An outsider who just wants out...

Spence Côte has no idea what hit his site. Nearly a thousand replies on some little baker's comment and everything has blown up. Since the site is up for sale, it couldn't have happened at a worse time. Now he has to drive up to the middle of nowhere coast of Maine and get this resolved. ASAP. 

Two worlds collide...

Between the puppies dressed as pirates, the older women masquerading as tavern wenches, and the sweetest little baker he's ever seen, Spence knows Starlight Harbor might not just be freakishly might be what he'd been looking for.

The Sweetest Things is book one in the Starlight Harbor Series by Bria Quinlan. This is my very first book by Bria. It was simply adorable. She had me falling in love with the characters before the end of the first chapter. Spence Cote lives in upstate New York and runs a travel blog called Roadside Adventures. It’s a snarky blog that he is hoping to soon sell to get himself out of debt. Spence has a top ten tacky tiny towns list and he has put Starlight Harbor on that list for four years running. Even though he’s never physically visited there. Lyra Grigor has lived her entire life in Starlight Harbor, Maine. She loves her town and the residents within. Lyra owns and runs the town bakery, The Sweetest Things. When she sees her town on the tacky tiny towns list, again, she’s had it. So she lets everyone know how she feels when she comments on the blog. Only, it seems this wasn’t the smartest move because hundreds of people commented and her ratings plummeted. This bakery was everything to her. Now what was she going to do? When Spence realized what happened, he thought he should travel to Starlight Harbor, apologize to the little old lady that he assumes owns the bakery, and then head back. His first surprise was that there was no little old lady. There was an adorable, little blonde that stole the words right out of him. He had to make this right somehow. So he decides to stay in Starlight Harbor for a few days and get to know this little town, and the cute little baker. Spence never really thought he was unhappy before in his life until he came here and realized what happiness really felt like. How could this little town feel like home in only a couple of days? It felt like he was where he was supposed to be. And that Lyra was part of that. The more time he spends with her, the more he knows he doesn’t want to go back to the way things were before, he doesn’t want to leave. This was the sweetest little book. This town is freaking adorable. There is something very special about what they do there but I don’t want to give that away. Prepare to get hungry because there is plenty of talk about cupcakes, cookies, scones, and all sorts of sugary wonders. Spence and Lyra were so cute. I would classify this as a clean romance. There are no sexy times. I didn’t really miss it though. The next book in the series will be Lyra’s best friend, Vivian and Cam’s story. I can’t wait!

A sweet story about a sweet woman who bakes sweet things. Loved the story with the quirky people and the love that grows out of hate. The writing is relaxed and draws the reader right into the middle of Starlight Harbor. I found myself getting upset when the book ended because I wanted to stay in this lovely community with these quirky but very real characters. This was the first book I've read of Bria Quinlan's writing, but it won't be the last. Recommended read.
