Silhouette Special Edition is a line of books that I have read and reviewed often on the blog. It is one line of novels that I have come to love to read and the author that I’m reviewing today is one of my favorites authors. This book is not the first in Victoria Pade’s Northbridge Nuptials series because it started before I found about the Silhouette Special Edition line. They are all out-of-print by the time I found out about the Northbridge Nuptials series and you probably won’t find the books in the series that I will be reviewing except the last book in the series to date. Hometown Cinderella is the seventh book in the series but it is a good book that I don’t feel as if I missed all that much by not being able to read the first five book in the series.
The heroine, Eden Perry, has finally returned to Northbridge since her graduation from high school and still she felt like an ugly duckling when she first stepped into town. Yet her gorgeous transformation impressed her small-town neighbors and not to mention her long-ago crush Cameron Pratt, who is the hero of the novel. And as luck would have it, Cam’s dark good looks had only improved with age and has Eden very attracted to him even though she doesn’t want to be. Now forced to work with him on a local investigation, Eden couldn’t slow her racing pulse or control her sweaty palms. But as the intimacy between them grew, could the way she looked on the outside conquer the fears of the vulnerable teenager living inside? I know she can because she is one strong woman who has grown much since she left Northbridge but has to face her past in order to finally be the woman that she really is inside. Cam is the sort of man to help her and to over come his own issues that he has that will help them both be one amazing couple together. I loved the novel and I was happy to find that there were going to be more Northbridge Nuptials series books because there are a lot of Pratt and Perry siblings and relatives that have their own love stories to be told. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
