Maybe what they needed most was there all along…

Delaney Phillips, a divorced mom, works for her longtime best friend Wyatt Andrews at Cabins in the Pines. Wyatt inherited the rustic resort from his father, and both he and Delaney have made countless happy memories there. After a highway bypass leaves it a little too off the beaten path, they’ll do just about anything to keep it open.

At Delaney’s urging, Wyatt auditions for a reality TV program that helps businesses in trouble. The show’s glamorous host arrives with her camera crew, turning the place upside down in hilarious and alarming ways.

But Delaney doesn’t like the woman’s new plans for the business…or her designs on Wyatt. Because even though Delaney’s known him since the first grade, she’s slowly but surely falling in love with him. Can she help him see the cabins―and their relationship―in a different light?

This clean romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe for Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes.

Book Review:

With a wonderful setting, lovable characters, and friends to something more trope, Love on Location has something for everyone. Delaney is fierce in her desire to save Cabin in the Pines and equally determined that falling in love with Wyatt is out of the question. Delaney is a devoted mother and a true friend, but her growing love for Wyatt could put everything at risk.

I found the setting very picturesque. Cabin in the Pines is one of those places where I could move in and stay forever. But my favorite thing about the book was the characters themselves. While Delaney and Wyatt are the main attraction, secondary characters round out the story with additional humor. I could easily see some of them getting their own books one day. Ursula was probably my favorite secondary character. Her spunk and never-say-die attitude helped keep Delaney on track while providing moments of levity to the seriousness of the situation.

Another facet that interested me was the behind-the-scenes look at TV filming and production. The arrival of the film crew changed everything, tossing Delaney, Wyatt, and the rest of the Pines crew into a topsy-turvy world they never expected.

The best part was in the not knowing. While I thought I knew what would happen at the end, I was still second-guessing myself until the very end. Would Cabin in the Pines be saved? If so, at what cost?

Love on Location moved like a symphony, creating highs and lows that consistently worked your emotions to a fever pitch before building to an award-worthy crescendo.
