Book Release and Review: Coming Around by Carmen Cook



Coming Around by Carmen Cook

A Sapphire Creek Novella (Sapphire Creek Series)

Mountain Coast Media, LLC (July 10, 2018)

Contemporary Romance



Chief of Police, Connor McCabe is in the middle of one of the toughest cases Sapphire Creek has ever seen. But what’s really weighing on his mind is his wife, Bethany. She’s been acting strange for weeks, even before the Thanksgiving disaster, and he’s not sure why. He’s made plans for a romantic weekend away, but the investigation keeps threatening to interfere.

Bethany McCabe is a planner. She had to be in order to get her life back on track after an unplanned pregnancy twelve years before fast tracked their plans for the future. Now Bethany has a successful business, a family she adores, and everything is exactly how it’s supposed to be. But with yet another unplanned baby on the way, Bethany needs to figure out how to get Connor alone before he finds out the news from anyone else.









Coming Around is a novella following the series first book, Coming in Hot where Connor and Bethany have planned a much-needed weekend away.  This is a well written story with likable characters. I loved that Connor didn’t allow the council and a few citizens to bully him. He’s truly dedicated to his job and his family. He has a tough case to solve and loyal family and friends to help him. Bethany is a hormonal mess and I adore her. A quick read that left me satisfied. Carmen Cook has created a wonderful small-town romance series and I’m looking forward to more books. Note:  I think you would benefit by reading book 1 first as the storyline continues.
