The cover is cute, though it seems like it’s taken up by the authors’ names a lot. Perhaps there was a different way to do that?

The story is fun and interesting. Eva has returned to her hometown to run her late grandmother’s coffee shop. She’s making some changes, including removing the magic drink of Coffee Amour from the menu because she doesn’t believe in its magic. But she faces lots of flak from the town and all the believers in the drink.

Mac is just looking to find some answers to his family history and get out of town. But he needs some coffee to boost his research and before he knows what’s hit him he and Eva have both sipped some of the magic elixir and love is in the air. Well, it’s not love, initially. But something’s definitely up. And the whole town is buzzing about it helped by the three little old ladies that seem to constantly occupy the corner table in Coffee with a View, Eva’s coffee shop.

The pace is brisk and the story is fun in this small town by the sea. I enjoyed it so much that I immediately bought book two, September Breeze by Nikki Lynn Barrett; and when I was done with that, I bought book three, Playing Doctor by Monique McDonell. Both books were just as good as Love on the Boardwalk and fit right into the series. I’m looking forward to reading all seven books in this series. Recommended.
