Hey all! Another second book review of the week! This time it is Somerset Girls by Lori Foster
No one knows you quite like a sister…
Summer in Sunset, Kentucky, means long, hot days—and sometimes surprising new beginnings. Through it all, the ties of sisterhood will be there, guiding Autumn and Ember to the lives, and loves, they need…
When they’re running the animal-rescue farm they inherited from their grandparents, Autumn and Ember Somerset are perfectly in sync. At all other times, not so much. Dependable Autumn would rather curl up with a good book than paint the town red with Ember. After the disaster that was Autumn’s last relationship, it’s pure self-protection. But when her high school crush comes back to town with his adorable young daughter, igniting memories best left forgotten, there’s only one person Autumn can turn to…
Beneath Ember’s free-spirited facade is a layer of deep hurt. She’ll gladly nudge Autumn toward a second chance. But risk her own heart? Not likely. The closer Autumn gets to her own happily-ever-after, the more Ember wonders what she might be missing—and if it isn’t her time to be bold, too.

I found this book as an audio book on Scribd and so decided to try out this one.
This story is set in a small town called Sunset, Kentucky, set during the summer. This is a story about two sisters, Autumn and Ember who is running the animal rescue shelter which they have inherited from their grandparents. Autumn would love to snuggle up to bed with a book than pain the town in red with Ember. But the tie between the two sisters is strong and they seemed to be supporting to each other even during the hard times.
Then the story starts with Autumn’s high school crush returning back to the town with his adorable young daughter thus igniting the past memories and feelings, when Autumn was asked by him to redecorate his daughter’s room. Then there is the growing romance between Ember and Mark who works in the barn with the sisters.
So the writing was engaging and I do really like the sister bond that both Autumn and Ember shared with each other. Even the characters are likable as well. Autumn is somewhat an introvert type who would read a good book rather than partying but when she meets her crush, her life changed a little and she was afraid of getting into a relationship after her ex betrayed her. Ember is going through some emotions after losing her baby and Autumn is helping Ember to cope up with the emotions. I also like the growing relationship between Autumn and Sadie, who is Tash’s younger daughter and the growing romantic relationship between Autumn and Tash and Mark and Ember. The writing was engaging and since I listened to the audio, the narrator did a good job reading it. The descriptions were realistic and vivid and overall, and the author did a good job, getting the reader engaged into the story.
For those who love a good summer cheesy romantic novel, this book will be a perfect option for you all! Worth five stars!
