New Release Review: Bountiful (True North #4) By Sarina Bowen

Bountiful (True North #4)
by Sarina Bowen
Release Date: October 20, 2017


No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.

Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on. 

Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life. 

Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.

Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.

Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

My review: 5 stars!
Sarina just did a Shipley Farm/Brooklyn Bruisers crossover for us and it WAS FABULOUS! We met Zara in the True North series and when we last saw her, she was pregnant and keeping mum about the identity of the father. Turns out we get to meet him in Bountiful and he's a player for our favorite hockey team. What are the odds? :-)  I adored Dave and how he stepped up and was so patient with prickly Zara. Turns out Zara brings out the best in Zara and these two are SO GOOD TOGETHER.  
It was super fun to catch up with Griff and Audrey (newly married and expecting!) and Trevi, and please, Sarina, give us more Castro! Bountiful can absolutely be read as a standalone, but it's so fun to be in Sarina's world of cider and hockey, I really suggest you read them all.
