[Kame's Review]: "Stirring Up Trouble"

Stirring Up Trouble by Kimberly Kincaid
Publisher: Zebra (October 7, 2014)
Series: Pine Mountain, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Looking for inspiration...

Sloane Russo's turned a decade of crazy jobs and whimsical travel into a career writing steamy novels set in exotic places. Trouble is, Sloane's flat broke now—and she can't channel sun-drenched beaches in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The only fast cash in town comes with some seriously distracting temptation: Gavin Carmichael, hot, handsome and oh-so-hard-headed.

Gavin isn't the impulsive Don Juan of Sloane's novels. He's raising his thirteen-year-old half-sister, and he's pretty sure he's supposed to act like he's never heard of fun. Sloane is way too sexy and irresponsible to be his idea of a good tutor for Bree, but the unpredictable anti-nanny may be irresistible as well...

Kame's Review:

Another great Pine Mountain Book. There is something about this series. It is just a comfort to read, not the steamiest book I have ever read.  The interaction of the characters, both new and returning,  make you feel like you are right there; a member of the small community.

I always find it interesting when an author writes a book where a character is an author. Sloane is a best selling author who wants to go in a different direction but her editor has other ideas. She has never stayed in one place long and helping Gavin with his sister will help fund her next adventure. I enjoyed the interaction between Sloane and Gavin's sister Bree. And as a mother of a daughter the same age as Bree I think she did a great job representing a teenage girl. Sloane and Gavin develop a love and a great friendship; I think more time was devoted to their relationship (together and individually) with Bree than each other.

I will read every book in this series as the characters have become great friends.
