    This series continues to deliver

    Bountiful features an overlap of two of Miss Bowen’s current series when Zara, a Vermont native and True North character, falls for a hockey player from the Brooklyn Bruisers while he's on a summer vacation in Vermont. Though the book features characters from both series, this is a standalone and readers need not be familiar with either series to follow along and enjoy Zara and Dave’s story. I really loved these characters and couldn’t help but fall for Dave’s easy demeanor. I also really enjoyed the surprise baby plotline. It didn’t feel awkward or secretive, but rather made for an interesting storyline that gave Zara and Dave a second chance at a lasting relationship. There was a nice balance of angst and emotion driving the plot without it ever feeling overblown or dramatized, making for a wonderful story that was easy to get lost in. I had to admire Zara’s strength and really enjoyed watching these two navigate their shot at love. Miss Bowen has a true gift with pacing that was readily apparent in Bountiful. The book begins by going back to tell of Zara and Dave’s initial encounter two summers ago. Although there was enough detail to flush out the characters and build a chemistry that carries into the present, the pace never lingered so long as to lose my interest. I was also struck by the secondary characters. Because Miss Bowen was pulling from two series, there were previous characters and couples as well as a host of new characters. And as much as I was really enjoying Dave and Zara’s romance, these new characters definitely grabbed my attention and left me eager to see if we’ll eventually get a bit more about them in the future. There’s a reason every book in the True North series finds its way onto my physical bookshelf as well as my e-reader…and it’s not just because of the gorgeous covers. This series boasts incredible stories that alight a hundred different emotions in me. Bountiful was more of the same- an emotional, sweet story with wonderful characters and stellar writing that was next to impossible to set down. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

    Loved it

    Yes, I did. It’s 4.52 am and I simply couldn’t put the book down. It was a pleasure to read Zara’s story, and see how the unhappy girl in Bittersweet grew into a woman who earned her happy ending.

    Loved!

    4.5☆ I adored Bountiful from the very beginning! I loved seeing the evolution of Dave and Zara as individuals and as a couple and family. This story is such a journey of who they are becoming now and how different their life is with Nicole. Dave is adorable and I loved being in his head especially. I was super sucked in and didn't want to put it down! It is possibly my favorite in the series, I loved it!

    Missed the mark for me

    Bountiful is book 4 in the True North series.  I have enjoyed  all of the stories up to this point very much.  The strengths in the first 3 books are the couples whose love story is told and then all of the secondary  characters, especially the Shipley family.  Usually, the books are well rounded and each character's life is told in a deep and meaningful  way so that the reader can fully  understand their struggles.  I didn't find that as much with Zara and Dave's story.  The flow of this book felt a bit disconnected. Storylines were started and then not finished, i.e. Jimmy Gage or the person who almost ran into Zara with his truck.  What was the point of that in this story without a follow up?  I didn't really like Zara too much and her family  drove me nuts especially Uncle Otto.  Ugh!  I did like Dave.  He's a big teddy bear and it was amusing to read his absolute naivete when it comes to dealing with a baby.  I also liked  his sister Bess.  Hope to see her again in the Brooklyn Bruisers series maybe.  Lastly, I was really disappointed with Griff and Audrey's wedding.  Since they started this whole series, I felt their wedding day deserved better.  Overall, I love this  series, but this particular story was least intriguing.
