Winning isn't everything...

To other people Dr. Elaine Watson never loses. Period. So she won't miss out on a chance to restore the Bluebird Bed-and-Breakfast. The owner's son, Dean Collins, seems just as determined as she is. A famous photojournalist, he hasn't been home in years, so why does he want to turn the Bluebird, a charming old B and B, into a fishing camp?

With just a few weeks to create the winning plan, Elaine has no choice but to spend time with the guy. She's drawn to the handsome, wounded man, but being with Dean would mean giving up the future she's been dreaming of... And Dr. Elaine Watson never gives up.

The Bluebird Bet is a gentle, slow paced, light romance about two people who want to own the same property.  Dean and Elaine both love the Bluebird B & B but envision different things for it's future.  Elaine wants to restore the Bluebird to it's original glory and bring families back.  Dean wants to focus on the fishing which is something that he loves.  These two very different individuals have to learn to work together while they plot against each other.

The plot of the story is good - rivals who become friends who might become more if they allow themselves.  Even though both Elaine and Dean are determined to win, they also end up caring what will happen to the other if they do win.

As I said, this is a sweet, gentle book.  It didn't pull my emotions in or cause my heart to pitter patter, but it was a good book.  The romance is soft and slow building.  The Bluebird sounds like the perfect place for a weekend getaway.  I want to go there!  But only if Elaine wins...

I love the Harlequin Heartwarming line.  It is the perfect place for a girl like me to settle in because I like my romances sweet and clean.

  1. My favorite kinds of books are clean romance! I wish there was more of them! It's hard to sift through the yucky ones.

  2. I love the Heartwarming line! I've read several of them and they are all so sweet.
