Enemies make the worst neighbors, but the best lovers
After losing her job, her home, and her friends in her divorce, Nora Pitts is determined not to make the same mistakes when she starts over in the small town of Shadow Creek, Washington. No more toiling away in the lab at the expense of her social life, and definitely no more men. Ever. But making friends in her thirties is so much harder than she anticipated. And when it comes to her gorgeous yet obnoxious neighbor, it's a whole lot easier to make enemies.
Eli Hardin doesn't have a lot of sympathy for his uptight neighbor, until he overhears her so-called new friends making fun of her un-datable status. Suddenly he finds himself volunteering for a date with a woman who's been leaving angry hate-notes in his mailbox, and in way over his head. Because all it takes is one disastrous date with Nora for Eli to fall hard.
But falling for Eli isn't something Nora's ready for—not when he's her complete opposite, and especially not when he turns out to be the best friend she's made in Shadow Creek. But as her attraction and her feelings for Eli grow hotter, resisting him might just lead to heartbreak anyway.

The second book in the series and just as enjoyable as the first book n the series. After her divorce Nora moves to Shadow Creek hoping to make a fresh start and take back her life.
Moving in next door to Eli, one of the owners of the Holy Grale Brew Pub she finds it hard to fit in and is frustrated by all the noise Eli makes whilst renovating .
I liked both Eli and Nora easy to relate to and the characters were strong and engaging. I found myself smiling throughout the story even though Nora and Eli started off as enemies and soon morphed into so much more.
Eli and Nora are totally opposites but as they say opposites do attract and these two certainly prove that as you read the book. When Eli introduces Nora to the Books & Brews Book Club he hopes that she will make some friends and feel more welcome.
This is most certainly a stand alone but as it is only book two I would recommend you also purchase book one as the quirkiness of Shadow Creek and it’s inhabitants will draw you in.
This book was so good that I really didn’t want to put it down. I loved this book from start to finish; it was a fabulous read, full of great moments that really brought a smile to my face.
I cannot wait for the next release in this series.
This is book 2 in the Books & Brews Series and just like book 1 it had me smiling and feeling good which for me is a sign of a great read.

Enemies make the worst neighbours, but the best lovers ....
Two people that at the start seem very different but as the story unfolds you realise just how much they have in common,this book is a romance but it’s also a story about forming friendships and learning to trust again it has great characters and you will laugh and cry alongside the owners and their partners at the Holy Grale pub which Eli is a part owner in. This book can be read as a stand-alone but I’m sure after reading this you will want to learn more about the residents of Shadow Creek. Looking forward to the next instalment in this great series.
