To me a good romance novel needs to be more than a bodice ripper - there also needs to be some romance and a relationship between the couple. There are so many problems in day to day life that it's always wonderful to read a story with a happily ever after ending. I always enjoy reading a good romance and here are reviews of several that I've read this year.
I found this to be a very interesting look at OCD. Clare is a very likable main character and Helen Barbour does an excellent job of presenting the day to day issues of someone with this disorder. This book gave an informative view of the various types of OCD as well as being an enjoyable read.

One Last Fling is a light fun book. Daisy was a lot of fun to read and her chemistry with Ryder made this an enjoyable book to read.

As always, Debbie Macomber comes through with the perfect light read of the summer. This is the end of the Rose Harbor series and she wraps up the main plot involving Jo Marie and Mark, a secondary plot involving Emily and Nick plus brings us up to date on various couples from the first four books in the series. In the main plot, Mark (the handyman from previous novels in this series) has left Cedar Cove to right a wrong from his past. It's a dangerous mission and he tells Jo Marie not to wait for him to return. After waiting over a year and starting to date again, she receives some shocking news about Mark that will change everything. It's wonderful to see the Rose Harbor b&b work its magic and provide peace and happy endings for the people who stay there and to bring the readers so much enjoyment.
It's a great series and if you haven't read it yet, it's time to read it. I promise that you'll enjoy Debbie at her best!
