    Great read

    I really enjoyed this book. The main characters Nate and Samantha work perfectly together. Neither seem to fit the small town image. He's a polished businessman splitting his time between Nugget and San Francisco, while she's a New England old money socialite working in a small town hotel. Together though, they seem to be right where they should be. Both have been hurt in the past, so trusting and loving each other won't come easy but when it does it's honest perfection. A great read that I highly recommend. While this is the fourth book in a series it is easily read stand alone.

    Impossible to put down

    Instead of showing up for the society wedding of the century, Samantha made a run for it, driving clear across the country with no clue where she was going or what she would do when she got there. When the sleepy little town of Nugget had her hitting the brakes, she found herself with no work experience and no marketable skills. But she's smart and willing to work hard, and her knowledge of planning classy events seems like it may come in handy at recently renovated Nugget Inn. If only the owner wasn't such a jerk. The Verdict: Despite the fact that Samantha was from a wealthy, high society world that most of us can't even imagine, she was incredibly easy to like. She appreciated finery and certainly didn't turn her nose up at the better things in life, but she was personable, hard working, and intelligent. She didn't expect that the world would fall at her feet at the mention of her name (in fact, she pretty much hid and downplayed her identity as much as possible), and her thoughts and emotions were not those of someone spoiled rotten but rather of someone who simply wanted to find meaning in life. Nate is someone I never really warmed up to in previous books. He wasn't a bad guy, sure, but he was rather stiff, and while he may have been generous enough to act as a donor when his best friend wanted to have a baby, we never really got to see much of Nate as a feeling human being — until now. His inner conflict regarding the daughter he technically fathered but wasn't a father to allowed for a deep look into what made the man tick, and it was impossible not to feel for him in that situation. And then there was his past… Nate still harbored a lot of negativity after his fiance ran out on him before their wedding years ago, so Samantha's story of running off from her would-be groom definitely set him on edge. The consummate businessman, Nate couldn't get past Samantha's lack of useful education and work history, and on the personal side of things, her situation felt to him like another betrayal. No matter how nice she was, he couldn't see past his own issues — at least for a long while — and it took him a lot of time to finally let himself see who Samantha was on the inside. Both characters were strong and proud, so you can just imagine the head-butting that happened between them on an almost daily basis. Their mutual attraction certainly complicated things as well, but proximity has a way of making people get to know each other, walls and all. Plus, Samantha was such a sweetheart that it was only a matter of time before Nate fell for her. Watching him fight it, though, was certainly entertaining! As with the previous books in the series, Samantha and Nate are complex and fully developed characters, and their main interactions aren't only with each other. There's a full supporting cast of townspeople and family, all of whom enrich the plot and keep the story from straying into any dull territory. The Nugget series is so well written and rich with both main stories and side stories that it's impossible to put any of the books down once I've started, and now I'm just dying to get my hands on whatever comes next! ***FicCentral received this book from Kensington Books (via NetGalley) for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Good book

    Although it was not my favorite of the Nugget Series I couldn't put it down. Nate was a little sarcastic for my taste, but he was still hot and loved Samantha.

    Fun Story, great setting!

    Samantha Dunsbury was all set for her glittery society wedding to the scion of a prominent family, in spite of her misgivings, when she found out the day before the wedding that her groom had been less than honest with her all along and had no plans to be faithful to her after the big event. Determined to get away from everything, she got in her car and drove off, landing in the picturesque mountain town of Nugget, California. With its beautiful scenery and friendly locals, Sam doesn't want to leave and the perfect opportunity arises when the innkeeper of the Lumber Baron, the town's Victorian Inn, needs someone to fill in while she's away on maternity leave. Sam is used to organizing big society events, a skill she puts to use in her position at the inn with great success. Sam enjoys everything about her job except one: her disagreeable boss, Nate Breyer. Nate does not want a society princess from back east destroying his business. He knows all about Sam's kind of woman, having been engaged to one before and is just waiting for her to throw in the towel and move on to something more interesting but to his surprise, Sam has a talent for the job and enjoys it. However, he's not willing to let his guard down around her. STARTING OVER was fun to read, with an interesting story, likable characters and above all, a very quaint location. I loved Sam. She wanted to be valued for more than her last name. For a socialite, she was refreshingly down to earth and very courageous in leaving all that was familiar and starting over across the country. Her fun and outgoing personality made her the perfect fit for her job and I liked seeing how her confidence grew with every success she racked up at her job. I'm all for learning from past experiences but I think that Nate took his lessons too far and was a jerk to Sam. Even his love and caring for his family and friends was not enough to redeem him much. A lot of the drama comes from Nate's determination to dislike Sam for all that she represented, even though he was attracted to her and in spite of the fact that she had shown through her behavior that she was different from his ex and he really annoyed me with his stubbornness. But he did not count on Sam's tenacity and her resolve to prove that he had the wrong opinion of her. One issue I had with this story was that most of their interactions revolved around work and I would have looked more personal time between them. Also, their lack of communication was quite irritating and was responsible for the turbulence of their relationship. In spite of these issues, STARTING OVER was entertaining and enjoyable. I especially love the small town community and the close ties between family and friends. Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
