AN AMAZON BEST OF THE MONTH SELECTION

Blue Hollow Falls may be a small Blue Ridge Mountain town, but it’s big on love—and second chances . . .

 
When former barrel racer Cheyenne McCafferty left the circuit, she left her past behind too. Now, as part owner of Lavender Blue farm, she’s content rescuing and rehabbing horses, and growing a new business. She’s only got one regret: letting go of Wyatt Reed. When he professed his love, she was too young and foolish to know her heart. After that he disappeared. But when his beloved horse turns up on the auction block, Chey makes a bid and wins more than she bargained for . . .
 
Chey believed she was ready to face Wyatt again, to explain herself. But seeing the man he’s become, she’s unsure. Gone is the quiet, gentle boy she knew. In his place is a rugged, confident adventurer who’s seen the world. Yet the longer Wyatt sticks around, the clearer it is that the feelings of their youth aren’t so easily dismissed now that they’re adults. In fact, the timing may be just right to make the dreams they’ve shared under a firefly moon come true . . .

What would you risk for a second chance with the one that got away? Would you be willing to give up the life you have built, which has begun to give you fulfillment and happiness after you have moved on, past the pain and grief that has plagued you for years? That is the question that runs throughout this book, as Cheyenne and Wyatt connect for the first time since their teenage years. This is a story about finding happiness, and learning that love is not always an all-or-nothing prospect, and that making a successful future together often involves changes, and compromise. I really connected with the story, the characters, the town - this was a fantastic read! What I liked about this book series is that all of the female characters are strong, and aren't waiting for a man to save them - Cheyenne is no exception. She is strong, confident, and knows what she wants, and is working to build a future for herself on the Lavender Farm in Blue Hollow Falls, and in addition, she is rescuing horses that need her help. Wyatt has also moved on from the rodeo circuit after he disappeared, and he has been hugely successful with making his own difference in the world. The two of them come together to help preserve Firefly Lake, and sparks fly. I would recommend this book for romance readers that appreciate a true romance in a quaint small-town setting. If you are looking for a happy, uplifting story, this one is for you! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, through netgalley.

We finally get former barrel racer Cheyenne McCafferty's story and best of all it's a second chance story! These stories set in Kentucky's Blue Ridge Mountains are just so rich in small town connections and beautiful settings. This story highlights being environmentally enriching without destroying the charm of the area and making the world a better place. I loved how the town got together to fight the deep pocket developers. Cheyenne's life on the rodeo circuit destructed with the violent death of her brother bull riding and the loss of her two best friends, fellow barrel racer Victoria- Tory Fuller, and Wyatt Reed. They both left the circuit about the same time and she spiralled in her grief. When she met the now Fearsome Four life changed for the better. She found a home with these women. This story starts out with her old friend Tory contacting her that Wyatt's favorite horse Buttercup is in bad shape and on the auction block. Cheyenne comes to bring Buttercup home to her horse rehab at the Lavender Blue Farm. When Tory arrives after her place is sold she comes with Wyatt forcing the two of them to reconcile after so many years. One of the most delicious part of this story is watching Vivienne Baudin in all her Broadway glory deal with rich Paul Hammond, Mr. Deep Pockets. Then there's the revelation of what Wyatt Reed has been up to since he left the circuit and his violent, drunk father. We get to see these two people grow to understand each other once again as adults and see they are both good people trying to help others. I love getting to visit old friends we have come to know in this series. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We are back at Lavender Blue Farm! A place for healing, hope and as many chances as you need to find your way home. This is number four in the series. The women who own the farm are like family to each other and they have all suffered in their lives. But here they have found safety and their own inner strength and are all following their dreams. This is Chey’s turn. The former barrel racer has worked hard to forget the pain of her past and what she lost. She has found healing at Lavender Blue and is perfectly content. She let her shot at love go willingly and regretted it instantly. She misses her two besties from her life growing up on the rodeo circuit. Wyatt Reed left the rodeo after she put him in the friend zone. Her other BFF, Tory, did as well. This is the story of what happens when Tory pokes her little nose into the lives of her friends. She finds Wyatt’s horse in very bad shape and who does she know that rehabs horses? Yes! Chey. Chey is happy to take Buttercup but when Tory shows up to stay, she brings Wyatt Reed right smack into Chey’s life. But not the same Wyatt. A different, calmer and gentler Wyatt. Will, she let him walk away again? Or will they fall in love under the firefly moon? What did I like about this one? All of it. This series is a powerful look at what women can do when they support each other. These are stories of hope and a reminder to all of us that we can get back up and change our reality.

What would you do if the love of your life that you had left in your past suddenly walked right up in front of you? That's what Chey and Wyatt have to figure out. They have both moved on and have different/separate lives now. The love is still there beneath the anger and so is the desire for each other. Kauffman does an excellent job of displaying their thoughts and emotions as the story unfolds. This fourth book in the series (also a spin-off) brings the characters of Blue Hallow Falls together to fight for what is right for their small town. I loved having the characters of the previous books show up in solidarity and the introduction of new characters. I'm ready to head back! I was given a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley. All thoughts are my own.

I just adore the Blue Hollow Falls series and was super excited to read Cheyenne McCafferty’s story. Although it is a standalone, it is part of the Blue Hollow Falls series even as the publisher lists it as book one of a new series. Sorta confusing administrative pieces but the story and the book are perfect. I have read and loved all the previous books and waited impatiently for this story. No spoilers so I will say what I loved about this book. When we were introduced to Cheyenne and Lavender Farm, we as readers didn’t know anything about her or her background. Since this is her story, we meet a very old friend of hers, Tory, and Wyatt Reed – not just another old, dear friend but Cheyenne’s everything. Chey and Wyatt are the most vulnerable and wonderful characters. They aren’t just a little broken, they are held together with old chewing gum. These two really need each other. I so enjoyed their reconnection, for lack of a better term, because they both needed to work through trauma and all kinds of feelings from their respective pasts. My heart broke for these two but I loved how their relationship played out. Working together, they were able to help each other and their HEA is the best. There is more to this story, it ties into Chey and Wyatt, but I don’t want to say too much as the author does such a great job of weaving a bit of intrigue and fun and bumps and bruises that you will have to read and enjoy for yourself. Great book, wonderful series, and I wanna move there!

I just love this series, there is such a warm feeling in the Blue Hollow Falls community, and the lavender farm in this book, which sounds like an idyllic place to live. The lavender farm part of this series is about four women, who met at a grief meeting and each had their own sad story, who became great friends and in the end business partners who invest in the lavender farm together, but all have their own living space on the property. This book is mainly Cheyenne's story who runs the stables and rescues horses. Chey was a former barrel racer, but after certain events ends up leaving that life and eventually starting over at the lavender farm. She is quite content with her own company and her rescues, but is forced out of that when her old friend Tory gets in touch about a horse that needs rescuing that she knew from her past life. Tory ends up moving to the lavender farm, and brings along a surprise guest in the form of Wyatt, another friend from their past lives, who Chey was very close to during her barrel racing life. There is unfinished business between Chey and Wyatt, and the story is about how they work through things, with Wyatt helping the Blue Hollow Falls community with business issues about a potential development around their lake. Also surrounding the development story is a really lovely story about Vivi, the eldest of the four owners, who contacts an old love during the course of trying to stop the lake development. So romantic - I really loved this side story! Every time I read the current Blue Hollow Falls book I change my mind about which is my favourite, and this is now definitely my favourite! Such a really lovely series that I would highly recommend. Long may it continue.

I received an ARC through Netgalley. Under a Firefly Moon contains a combination of my two favorite tropes: second chance and friends-to-lovers. Cheyenne and Wyatt grew up together on the rodeo circuit. Wyatt had feelings for Chey, but they weren’t reciprocated. Wyatt left and Chey realized her mistake too late. They haven’t seen each since until a mutual friend and beloved horse brings them back together. The camaraderie and connection they had growing up is still there, as well as chemistry. Blue Hollow Falls needs helps and Wyatt is in a position to offer assistance, keeping him in town longer than he intended and presenting him an opportunity to reconnect with Chey. Under a Firefly Moon is well-written, engaging, emotional, and romantic. This book is number four in the Blue Hollow Falls series, but it can be read as a standalone. It is also listed as “Firefly Lake Book #1” on some sites as the publisher, Kensington, is marketing it as a spin-off from Blue Hollow Falls.

Cheyenne was a barrel racer but left that life behind to make some much needed changes in her life. She became part owner in a horse rehab and rescue farm called Lavender Blue. She loves her new life and has settled in quite nicely only regretting one thing, leaving a certain cowboy behind. She felt like she was to young to make any important decision at that time in her life. He disappeared right after revealing his feelings for her, she turned away from him thinking that was the right decision for her. She gets quite a surprise when she finds his favorite horse on the auction block. She wins the horse and is shocked when Wyatt is there. The young boy she remembered is gone and a man she doesn't recognize is in his place. She soon learns that Wyatt isn't going anywhere and she isn't sure she how she feels about the situation. Neither can forget the past and the passion they shared between them. Follow along as these two dance around their true feelings for each other. Is it the right time to let love in or will they let it pass them by again.

In Donna Kauffman's Lavender Blue story we met former barrel racer Cheyenne McCafferty and one of the owners of the Lavender Blue farm. Chey doesn't have many regrets in her life but letting Wyatt Reed go was her biggest. When Chey reconnects with Tory Fuller, another former barrel racer the last thing she ever expected was to see Wyatt standing at her farm. It seems that Tory was tired of Chey and Wyatt not talking and decided to do something about it. As Chey and Wyatt spend more time together, they start to realize that they really missed being with the other and old feelings start to surface again. The only problem these two have in order to find their happy ending is their very different lifestyles. Chey enjoys rescuing horses and rehabbing them at the her stables, while Wyatt runs Planet Reed which takes him on adventures all over the world. It will take a whole lot of help from others for these two to find a solution that will make everyone happy. I just adored this story and love the second chance trope. It was fun learning about Chey's backstory and it made you realize the reasons for how she behaved. I really loved how Chey and Wyatt were able to just pick right back up where they left off even though so many years had passed. I also really enjoyed the side story of Vivi's past....especially when Chey and Wyatt were following her! ;) Overall I love the new additions to Firefly Lake and can't wait for the next book!

Under a Firefly Moon by Donna Kauffman Blue Hollow Falls #4 Marvelous second chance romance that sees Cheyenne McCafferty and Wyatt Reed come together over a decade after they parted in their teens. They had perhaps been too young to find their HEA back then but by the time they meet in this book they are definitely ready to be together forever – in some ways it is like “coming home” for both of them. It wasn’t all smooth sailing but there definitely was not drama or push-pull and I enjoyed that aspect of this story. What I liked: * Wyatt: my oh my...a great book boyfriend and someone I would like to call my friend. He was a man with a purpose and found himself in those years after he left the rodeo behind. * Cheyenne: a good friend who has found her purpose and a safe haven to call home. She has no blood family left but has created a family of her own * The Fearsome Foursome: Loved reading the previous books and loved hearing about Vivi and Cheyenne’s romances in this one. The four women central to the lavender farm are wonderful! * Buttercup & Tory ;) * The small town characters that have been in the series and added their presence to this book, too. * The way everyone worked together to find the solution for the town...and thwart the bad guys * What Wyatt and Cheyenne for a living * Being able to return to Blue Hollow Falls * Wondering if Tory will get a story of her own AND wondering if perhaps some of the people working on Wyatt’s live-stream will get stories of their own. What I did not like: * The corrupt councilmen * Having to say goodbye to the group till the next book comes out Thank you to NetGalley a nd Kensington-Zebra for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
