Summary : A recommended read for contemporary romance fans
In Kate Hoffman’s new novel The Mighty Quinns: Cameron, the Quinn boys haven’t had the easiest few years, having lost their parents in a boating accident, and being sent to live with their grandfather. Fortunately, their grandfather adores them and has given them the best life possible, and wants to continue to do so. So when he sends his four grandsons off to different parts of the States for six weeks, to start from scratch and figure out what to do with their lives, Cameron’s confused by what this will achieve, but goes along with it.
Ending up in a dusty town in New Mexico, Cameron wonders about the next step. He’s a yacht designer, and there’s not much call for people in his profession in New Mexico. So he’s got to find a job, any old job, and somewhere to live, fast.
In the town diner, he bumps into a beautiful local, Sofie Reyes. It turns out she’s a private investigator, and could actually do with some assistance on her current job, so Cameron is in luck. Not only does he have a job sorted, but it means he gets to spend time with a totally hot woman.
Sofie is attracted to Cam, too, but she refuses to let anything come of it. She’s not interested in romance, in a relationship, because she’s been burned in the past. However, Cameron is nothing if not tenacious, and as the two of them give in to the sparks between them, can they have their six weeks of fun without their hearts getting involved, too?
I only realised after reading this book that it’s part of a huge series of books by Kate Hoffman. But it didn’t matter in the slightest, as this was written very much as a standalone tale. There are references to the other family members involved in the quest, but you wouldn’t miss out on vital information by not reading them, though I’d definitely look out for them.
This is a very enjoyable read by Kate Hoffman. I like her characters and writing style, and although things happen pretty fast between the couple in this book, it still works. I’m not going to give any more away, but let’s just say this is a recommended read for contemporary romance fans. I’ll be looking for more works by this author.
