A themed tour through Prism Book Tours.

One Perfect Year
By Melinda Curtis
Did you miss any of the tour? Go back and check out these exclusive excerpts and reviews…
Launch – Intro to the Series
Old clashes against new with fun and heartwarming results. Although each book is a step closer to bringing the town back to life, each book also stands alone (because I hate it when you need to read from book 1 to enjoy the series).
Katie’s Clean Book Collection – Review
“I loved returning to Harmony Valley. The characters are quirky and endearing and the setting is heavenly. I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this story and felt a lot of emotion in relationship to the events that happened.”
JoJo’s Corner – Review
I love reunion love stories and Melinda has crafted a fabulously romantic story about love and loss and hope for the future. . . . This is a fantastic story that you won’t be able to put down! I love this town and can’t wait to revisit it in the other books in the series.
Christy’s Cozy Corners – Excerpt
The day he met Shelby, she’d stumbled into his high school science class during his senior year. He’d felt as if he’d been sucker punched. Unbelievably, he, who’d always relied on proof and facts, had fallen in love at first sight. How else could he describe how discombobulated he felt just seeing Shelby? But while he’d over-analyzed those strange, new feelings, Nick, who’d never hesitated in his too-short life, acted right after Gage introduced them.
Getting Your Read On – Review
I haven’t read the first three books in the series but I never felt like I was missing out on anything. I’d love to go back and read the whole series though. . . . This is a sweet story of love and friendship. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
i blog 4 books – Review
Oh what a fun book! I enjoy books where characters already know each other. I’ve found that it can move the story along a little quicker while still allowing for plenty of tension. Melinda Curtis did a great job using Gage and Shelby’s friendship from years ago to create a lot of believable drama in One Perfect Year.
Melinda Curtis is a new-to-me author, but I will definitely be searching out more of her wonderful stories! Don’t miss One Perfect Year! [4.5 stars]
Mel’s Shelves – Review
This book is a clean, fun read! There was more to it than I thought there would be and I enjoyed that! I liked the different storylines that came together in the end. I also like that it’s part of a series yet easily stands alone. I want to read the other books to see what other fun characters are in this series and I look forward to future installments!
Southern Chelle – Review
I love a good homecoming, animals-horses in particular, and opposites attract love story, so this was a great novel for me (and so very easy for me to love). Gage and Shelby’s story can easily ring true with a wide variety of readers and is a short, wonderful read.
Bookworm Lisa – Excerpt
“Accept my apology, Sugar Lips?” Gage Jamero was up to his elbows in trouble with his latest lady love.
Well, at least one elbow.
Sugar Lips’ contraction built like a blood pressure cuff around Gage’s right bicep. His face heated, his fingers numbed, his body felt as if it was wrapped in a too-tight ace bandage.
“Breathe easy, honey.” Gage tried to follow his own advice. During his internship and residency, he’d gained quite a reputation as a horse whisperer when it came to peevish, pregnant horses.
I Am A Reader – Excerpt
“I can’t talk to you as if I just saw you yesterday.”
But she wanted to. That once young, innocent part of her she’d assumed was long dead and buried—that stumbling, lonely misfit—wanted to.
Letter From Annie (Douglass) Lima – Excerpt
What if she lost Gage, too?
Her vision blurred around the edges, tunneling to Gage’s bare, muscular chest.
“Shelby!” Gage’s voice sounded far away.
And in that faraway place, Shelby dreamed of Gage’s lips pressed to her forehead, of him tenderly whispering her name.
Christian Chick’s Thoughts – Review
One Perfect Year is … nice. That is to say, it’s a very pleasant romance with likable characters and an enjoyable plot. I very much liked Gage and could understand his hesitance to commit to staying in Harmony Valley. I also actually found the description of the wine business to be very interesting (this surprised me greatly).
My Devotional Thoughts – Excerpt
“Friendships take time, too, in case you’d forgotten,” Shelby countered. “I’d rather have a dog.”
“You’ve given up on relationships? That explains a lot.” Looking grim, Gage finally took a bite of spaghetti.
“I don’t…I haven’t…You know nothing.”
He’s coming up on her blind side
How can Shelby Hawkley forgive Gage Jamero for bailing on her when she needed him most? He and her husband, Nick, were the best part of her life. Now her former best friend is back, shaking up the widowed wine harvester’s world. The safest bet is to protect herself. Except Gage is awakening feelings that are decidedly unfriend-like.
Shelby is the woman Gage has secretly loved since high school. Starting over—together—could be the best dream he’s ever had. If only he can find the courage to say what he should have said all those years ago.
