    Awesome

    Awesome read! I truly enjoy this series and this book is one of my favorites. Willa is such a unique character and Jackson is just so swoony. The story is wonderfully written with a great storyline and a nice pace to the story. Willa Brown wound up in Cottonbloom strictly by accident. Then what she thought would be a quick stop along the road turns into a home she doesn't want to leave. She may have no choice though if her past ever catches up to her. She would definitely miss Jackson Abbott. She knows it's a one-sided crush but a girl can dream. Right?? Jackson has never been the relationship type but what he feels for Willa is different and new. He knows she has secrets and while he won't push her he wants nothing more than for her to trust him. Can they find a way to each other or will Willa's past have her running for the hills? I highly recommend this one.

    Suspenseful and romantic

    Although there is no real violence in this novel, there is a strong element of suspense, and the reader is carried on one wave of tension after the other, right through to the end. Being ultra feminine myself, I always stand in awe of women who can do mechanical stuff and are not afraid to get some grease on their hands. I loved the characters in this book starting with Willa and Jackson, but the secondary characters are just as interesting and some even bring a light-hearted element into an otherwise very serious scenario. So many facets of running from one’s past and the need for healing were brought out in this story. Accepting River’s adoration and protection was a starting point for Willa as she allowed herself to start feeling again. The attraction between Willa and Jackson simmered all the way through, and when the relationship took a step forward, it was tastefully done. The book is very well written and although it is part of a series, it is nevertheless a stand-alone. The conclusion came to surprising end and the ground work was laid for a future book in this series. I received a copy of this book through NetGalley and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Sweet, small town romance

    I was given a copy of When The Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham in exchange for an honest review. This book is part of a series but can be read alone. The only thing that I did not like about this book, was that I was so into the book, I did not get very many of my chores or errands done the day and a half it took me to read it. The characters are sweet, the story telling was smooth and flowed well. I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the descriptions of the town, people, scenery even the imagery of the seasons. I really loved that the characters were relatable. I can't wait to read more stories by Laura Trentham. I don't even think I will care whether it is a part of this series or not... as long as it follows the same flow and interesting storyline that this book had.

    I love the Abbott brothers.

    I just love the Abbott brothers. We heard a little about Willa in the last book and I am glad Willa and Jackson got their story. Willa has been a mechanic at the garage for a couple of years, but the brothers know little about her. They know that she is an excellent mechanic and Jackson works side by side with her all the time. He never even noticed her as a woman before. But, when he does, he knows he can't ever let her run away. Willa has been running for years and has kept her background a secret. She doesn't want anyone hurt. She hasn't trusted anyone in a long time and isn't sure she should give Jackson her secret. As both Jackson and Willa are dealing with their past, they find they don't want to be alone any more.

    WOW!

    Willa and Jackson took my breath away, broke my heart a bit, and gave hope for the better days to come. This story literally left me gasping for a breath with the heart-wrenching realities of how tough life can truly be, how sometimes we just have to survive, and if we stick it out life can spur a surprise that can change our destinies. Jackson Abbott is a hardworking man who is trying to get a grasp of life after his father past away and one of his brothers got in trouble. The last thing that could tip the boat he is desperately trying to balance would be Willa leaving them and moving on. I loved Jackson. His honesty, his dignity, his kindness, tenderness, and protectiveness towards Willa made me admire him even more. He is just what Willa needs, they are so perfectly balanced with each other with their characteristics, talents, and imperfections, reading about them was like watching harmony in motion. Willa, oh my gosh, her spunk, her ability to survive, to take care of herself, to find the little things that made her smile and happy when life was kicking her to the curve again and again - I admire her immensely and wanted to hug her tight like she was my sister. Her skittish heart and untrusting mind had developed naturally after being on her own and on the road for so long. With the Abbott's she felt like she belonged, she fit in and was safe, she was truly an equal even though an employee. I loved her confidence in her skills with the cars, wished she learned to appreciate her other attributes as well. The story took a little time to set the stage, I haven't read the book one in the series, yet when the tale starting rolling, I could not put the book down. When the issues with the Abbott family is added to the troubles Willa has faced, to the secrets that needed to be unraveled, it all created drama and turbulence that rocked the foundation of all of their lives. There are heartbreak and sadness, yet there's optimism, there's hope for the silver lining, there's a heartfelt wish for normalcy in a life that could be filled with love, acceptance, and feeling safe and secure. An absolutely beautiful, touching story that woke my interest to the rest of the series, a desire to know more and keep living in the moment and find out how things will shape up to the Abbott clan. ~ Five Spoons
