Carolina Breeze by Denise Hunter



A jilted bride. A struggling innkeeper. And a romantic mountain getaway that changes everything.

Rising Hollywood star Mia Emerson is looking for a safe place to land in the wake of a public breakup and scandal, and she finds it in the lake town of Bluebell, North Carolina—the location of her canceled honeymoon. She wants nothing more than to hide and wait for the tabloids to die down.

Soon after her arrival at the Bluebell Inn, Mia meets Levi Bennett, who runs the inn along with his two younger sisters. Drawn to one another from the start, Mia trusts Levi to keep her location from the press, and Levi confides in Mia about the financial state of the inn—a secret he’s been keeping from his sisters.

When Mia and Levi discover an old journal that hints at a rare diamond necklace hidden in the inn, they set off on a treasure hunt to find the long-lost heirloom. What they don’t expect to surface are feelings they thought were safely locked away. Mia and Levi must decide if falling in love again is too big a risk—or if it will uncover a treasure of its own instead.

This Bluebell Inn romance takes us to a quiet North Carolina retreat that holds more secrets than it shares.


Once again Denise has penned another great story. I just love her and I try not to miss any of her books!
I just finished this book and it was awesome as always!
With a great plot, and what the characters were thrown into unexpectedly I liked how they all matured throughout the book.
Don't you just love how life manages to keep throwing twists and turns, misunderstandings, and maybe some adventures? I do it keep it interesting and on your toes that's for sure!
I'm glad to see Molly, Grace and Levi again! How I've missed them and I am glad they're back.
I felt sorry for poor Levi. I really wanted to reach in and give him a hug and tell him to just give it all to God but really, it isn't that simple. Most of us want to take things in our own hands thinking we need to control everyone, everything and most of ourselves. He certainly had a lot riding on his shoulders! I wouldn't want to be him since he had so much responsibilities to protect his sisters at all costs. He deserves love too.
I think the one I really felt sorry for was Mia. She was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time!
And in my opinion it was caused by that ol green eyed monster named Jax! I couldn't stand him! I wanted to reach through the book and tell him a thing or two!
Although some things seemed far fetched it had to do with Mia but it was still an enjoyable story and that's what fiction is all about.
I"m like the other readers. Is this a real place? I would love to check it out myself! Such a fascinating history! I love old houses and the name of the town.
I think the message in this book is that God loves us all and He would never abandon us no matter what station in life we came from or who has put us down to make us feel unworthy of their love. All we need to do is ask Him and He will be with us throughout our lives here on Earth. No one can take that away from us.
I loved that Hunter included Molly and Adam. They are such an interesting couple!
I love Molly's enthusiasm! Her outlook on life sure is interesting! I'd love to have her energy any day!
I"m looking forward to Grace's story too!
Will she go to college like her brother wants her to or will she end up staying at the inn?
I can't wait to find out!
At least I won't have to say goodbye just yet! This is such a beautiful series!
The cover is really inciting! It makes you feel like you are in the picture itself.
