Blog Tour- Painting Kisses


About the book: Lia Carswell is good at what she does—even if it isn't as glamorous as her old artist life in Manhattan. The popular waitress works hard in a small Salt Lake City diner, with the goal of easing her sister's financial strain. And with her witty personality and good looks, she's something of an enigma to the male customers who vie for her attention. Ever the professional, Lia keeps her distance—with one exception. Aidan is a breakfast regular, and his gentle, clever teasing draws Lia's attention and builds an easy rapport between them, though Lia would never let their relationship get serious—especially since he's not the only one trying to catch her eye. Her handsome neighbor Griff has been hinting that he wants more than a neighborly relationship.

Then her old New York artist life comes knocking, and an offer is made for a series of commissioned paintings. Lia knows it would ensure financial security for her family, but she doesn't know if she wants that life anymore. When she undertakes on final project, she reawakens her heart and soul. And as she finds herself falling in love and needing an outlet more and more, she realizes her paintings might be her saving grace.

My review: Melanie Jacobson is one of the best LDS contemporary romance authors out there. Her books are fresh, fun and usually humorous. This book is just as great as her other books that I've read. The characters are amazing, I really loved Lia. She's had plenty of heart ache, but she's working way hard to help out her sister and her young daughter Chloe. I love that you can tell just how much Lia loves Chloe, she's always trying to do something to better her life. I love how she works hard as a waitress, even though she's been an amazing artist and can basically charge anything she wants for her paintings. It was really neat to see Lia overcome the heart aches that she had been facing by starting to paint again, even though she felt that she would lose herself completely in her painting. I love how she banters with Aidan, a regular customer of the diner, so fun! I also really liked the unassuming neighbor Griff. This book is full of great characters, sweet romance and some humor. I highly recommend this and any of Melanie Jacobson's books if you want to read a sweet, clean, fun romance!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
