Review: The Holiday Romance Series: One Small Town, 4 Great Stories

For this review, I chose The Holiday Romance Series: One Small Town, 4 Great Stories by Robyn Grady.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Her Mother’s Day Miracle 
Nothing will stop Riley Mathis from giving his infant daughter a safe and stable life growing up. After his wife passed away during childbirth, Riley moved to Point St. Claire, Maine, where families are close and people simply care. So, who had he ticked off to be lumped with this neighbor from hell? 
Aster Lawrence could do without her friendly, happy, handsome new neighbor poking around in her business. This time last year, her world was shot down in flames. She’d been keeping her head above water before Riley Mathis introduced her to his baby. How could she keep her distance—keep surviving—when they were both so easy to love? 
Hers For The Summer 
Ten years ago, Melanie Beachmere had been given the responsibility of her life: assume legal guardianship of her much younger sister. Melanie is still determined to make all the right choices for high school senior Phoebe…even the unpopular ones linked with a seventeen-year-old bad boy who recently breezed into town. 
When a lawyer from Portland brings news of an inheritance left to Phoebe by a stranger, and a scandal from the past, Melanie’s world is rocked. Then her sexy lawyer crosses the boundary from business to the bedroom, and Melanie discovers…attorney Logan Taylor has some dark secrets all his own. 
One Haunted Moonlit Night 
Former dot-com success Jack Mason doesn't believe in ghosts or goblins. He hadn't bought this old lighthouse and keeper's cottage in Maine because of its eerie past, but to indulge a childhood dream. Then photographer Sammy Briar blows onto the scene. 
Sammy's story, delivered the night before Halloween at the site of a haunted grave, would raise the hair on the back of anyone's neck. Jack is intrigued, and not only by her tale. Everything about Sammy is captivating, mesmerizing, including her kiss. It's as if... 
Well, it's as if they'd met before. 
One Christmas Knight 
Five days before Christmas, Emma Bagwell’s structured existence spirals out of control. Her wayward sister has blown into town with a six-week-old who needs an emergency sitter for a week. Emma knows zip about babies, but after one look, she falls in love. And being a substitute mom is a great diversion from the one problem she can’t seem to solve. 
Doctor Damon Knight is even more infuriating than he is hot. Emma can’t decide which she’d sooner forget…their no-holds-barred public argument or his very private bone-melting kiss. But when the baby comes down with a fever, then an alarming rash, Emma doesn’t hesitate. Dropping his festive out-of-town plans, Damon comes to the rescue, and in more ways than one. 

Book #1- Her Mother's Day Miracle
Riley Mathis will do anything for his infant daughter.  He lost his wife.  Aster Lawrence has been through a lot and her neighbor has an infant daughter.  She is not over with what happened to her last year.  This was my favorite of all 4.

Book #2- Hers for the Summer

Melanie Beachmere has been the responible guardian of her younger sister.  She would do anything for her and that includes putting her life on hold.  She meets an attorney in her bakery one day because the cat that lives there ran out in front of him.  He wanted to make sure the cat was fine.  I think the cat had matchmaking plans of his own!

Book #3-One Haunted Moonlight Night
Jack Mason does not believe in ghosts.  He brought an old lighthouse and cottage.  A photographer, Sammy Briar, looking for answers about her relative who had history with Jack's property.

Book #4- One Christmas Knight
Emma Bagwell has a reputation of being a hard person to get along.  Her sister shows up with a 6 week old and needs her help watching her so she can go tell the father.  Emma has never taken care of an infant.  She looks for advice to the town's doctor, Damon Knight.  I think this was a sweet story about a woman who finds herself and not knowing that a little baby can change her life.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
