Always Be Mine
Watch love bloom in the new feel-good Sweetbriar Cove romance from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!
Actress Lila Moore is starting over. Escaping Hollywood scandal, she’s hiding out in Sweetbriar Cove to plan the next chapter in her life. The last thing she wants is an annoyingly handsome man snooping in her business, even if It turns out that he’s not the paparazzi… but her new gardener.
Landscape designer Griffin Hart doesn’t care about gossip, and he definitely doesn’t have time for a high-strung client like Lila. He prefers getting dirty planting spring bulbs, not walking the red carpet at a fancy premiere. As far as he’s concerned, their relationship is strictly business. But it turns out, Lila isn’t anything like the diva he expected. And when sparks fly, he can’t stay away…
Soon, the gardens aren’t the only thing blossoming at Rose Cottage. But can Lila trust enough to open her heart again? And when the past catches up with them, will this unlikely couple find a way to keep love in flower all year long?

Love small-town romance!
Small town romance is my favorite sub genre of romance, and when I think of small town, I think of Melody Grace. I’ve been intrigued by Griffin for awhile, and I was so happy to see Lila and him have a story! Witty, heartwarming, and sexy, plus cameos from all of your favorite Sweetbriar Cove residents!
Sweet Briar Cove Series
I have given this five stars because the light happy stories kept me reading. So much so, that I read the whole Beachwood Bay series followed by the Sweetbriar cove one! I really love how the author relates back to the previous books and continues with the stories twisting and weaving the relationships throughout. BUT... I do wish she was a bit more consistent. The timeline does not always seem to follow the correct order which is distracting when you know all the stories. I also would encourage the author to find a new editor as I found numerous typos and omitted words etc. That being said it was not enough to distract the reader in entirety as I have seen in a number of books :) All in all, I would purchase and read these books again.
Lila Moore comes back to Sweet Briar Cove, after leaving the groom at the alter earlier in the year, to hide from the paparazzi and restart he life away from Hollywood. She literally runs into Griffin at the store before rushing away before she is recognized. Fast forward to later in the day when Griffin goes to check out the yard of Lila's house without her knowing and Lila, thinking she has been found by the paparazzi, soaks poor Griffin with the hose. Needless to say a rocky start for the two of them. Both Griffin and Lila are battling not only their attraction between each other but each of their pasts as well. Sweet read that is a wonderful addition to the Sweet Briar Cove series.
