All's fair in love and coffee wars.
Madison Porter loves Honey Springs, but her days are one big rinse-wash-repeat routine of working for the mayor’s office and caring for the town’s matchmaking cat, Belle. She once bid on the town’s ice cream shop with hopes of running it herself, but the sweet deal seemingly wasn’t meant to be.
Patrick Manning moves to the tiny town of Honey Springs to start over. After outbidding his competition for a building space, he now owns The Bean & Brew—and refuses to name his coffee shop with a bee-inspired moniker as per town tradition.
Madison soon uncovers paperwork proving she actually won the bid and is the rightful owner of the shop, but no way will Patrick forfeit his claim and rebuild his life again when he’s worked so hard. So when the town magistrate suggests a competition to see which business should prevail, they’re both all in. The winner earns the space, but soon their hearts are at stake.
Robin Neeley’s second book in the Purrfect Pair series, One Purrfect Summer, brings back the zany town of Honey Springs with all its lovable and quirky characters including, and most importantly, the matching making gifted kitty Belle and her four kittens, Hope, Faith, Blue, and Tux.
This time out competition is fierce between Bean & Brew coffee shop owner Patrick and the ever dismissed Madison. With her never ending vendetta against Patrick for stealing (in her mind) the Honey Cone ice cream shop from underneath her, Madison comes up with what she thinks is a sure fire way to get back what was rightfully (again in her mind) hers.
As with with the story before it, One Purrfect Summer is a delightfully entertaining read...it again left me remorseful about leaving Honey Springs when the story ended.
