Frappe to Know You by Carly Greer: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

In the charming lakeside town of Willowbrook, NY, a tranquil escape from reality can be found at Maren Scott's cozy B&B and the quaint, attached Coffee Loft cafĂ©. Brooding and opinionated Alec Sullivan finds himself a reluctant guest, in town for his friend’s wedding but with serious reservations about the whirlwind romance that preceded it. Maren, a friend of the bride, shares Alec's doubts, but she's not one to let negativity dampen her spirits or the bride’s excitement.

When an unexpected late winter storm blankets the area, they become unlikely captives of the elements, snowed in with a handful of guests. Trapped at the Morning Glory Inn, Alec's reserved demeanor clashes with Maren's sunny disposition. But as the hours pass and they navigate the challenges of the storm together, they discover that beneath their surface differences lies a connection neither of them saw coming.

Will this forced proximity lead to a sweet, unexpected love story, or will it all melt away with the winter snows? Frappe to Know You is a sweet romance that proves love can bloom in the unlikeliest of places, even in the midst of a snowstorm.

Meet the maestro of happily-ever-afters, Carly Greer! Living in Western New York with her endlessly supportive husband and the Best Dog Ever, Carly is the author of sweet (though not always strictly clean) heartwarming contemporary small-town romance, sprinkled with laughter and sealed with the promise of a happy ending.

When she's not orchestrating love stories that warm the soul, you might find Carly immersed in her cozy writing nook surrounded by an array of dog-eared romance novels or exploring all the beauty of Buffalo and Western New York. She firmly believes that a good romance (and a great cup of coffee) can heal the weariest of hearts and add a touch of magic to any day; love and laughter are truly the best medicine! Also, Go Bills!

Frappe To Know You is part of the Coffee Loft series. This is a multi-author series with all books revolving around/featuring a Coffee Loft coffee shop in some way. All books are standalone and can be read in any order with no confusion. 

This was a super cute read! It felt just like a Hallmark romance in a book--- and I mean that it the best of ways. It was sweet, it was romantic, it was cozy. Maren and Alec don't click right away, but when a snowstorm keeps them (and a few other wedding guests) snowed in at the B&B Maren owns, they work together and find themselves falling for one another. While it was a fairly quick story (and quick attraction even), it still felt very much like a slow burn... and one that I really enjoyed. It wasn't just the romance that I enjoyed though, but also this sense of found family with all of the other side characters too. It all worked together to create this really warm story that I couldn't help but enjoy! If you're looking for a sweet Valentine's Day read, this is certainly one to check out. 

Frappe to Know You is a closed-door romance with kisses only.
