    A feel good story by Dennis Hunter called Honeysuckle Dreams. It was a good story and grabbed from me page 1. I liked it. I did not read the first book in this series but it was fine as a stand-alone book. It’s a quick read.

    I was asked the other day when I planned to review this book. I wanted to. I kept planning to... but I just didn't know what to write! So today, I am finally making myself sit down for a few minutes and sort out a couple thoughts on this book! ;PI feel like this is pretty typical of a Denise Hunter novel so if you enjoy her writing, chances are high that you're going to like this book. I don't often read series out of order, but I haven't read th...

    Honeysuckle Dreams was just what I expect from a Denise Hunter novel. The story was engaging, the characters likeable, and the romance was amazing. I loved the contemporary marriage of convenience storyline; it was unique to have it in a contemporary setting and I think the way it was done was great.After being introduced to both Brady and Hope in Blue Ridge Sunrise, I was eager to read their story and see how everything played out. Brady just lo...

    I love Denise Hunter's books. I'm always on the lookout for the next book coming from her and I feel like a lucky girl to be able to read and review them. I got a glimpse of Brady and Hope in the previous book in this series so I knew that this was a story I wanted to read. Brady and Hope have been great friends for quite awhile. When circumstances lead them to a marriage of convenience, they decide to do it because they they do love each other i...

    Definitely have to say this is the Denise Hunter I am used to reading and enjoying. Book 1, Blue Ridge Sunrise, was a disappointment. It was rather edgy and the spiritual content was very light; not what I normally see in her Christian fiction books. Honeysuckle Dreams is better written, has wonderful spiritual content, and very good character and plot development. I loved Hope and Brady's story. In one sense, it reminded me of a mail-order bride...

    Denise Hunter has once again created a community you want to visit and characters you want to be friends with. In the second Blue Ridge Romance, Hunter combines a friends-to-more story with a marriage of convenience story and it’s one I could not put down.Brady and Hope respect each other, help each other out, and share their joys and struggles with each other. So, when an assumption is made that could help Brady keep his son, Hope willingly ag...

    Honeysuckle Dreams is the second novel in the Blue Ridge Romance series (third if you consider the loosely related companion novel, Sweetbriar Cottage). Honeysuckle Dreams shares with these sister books a sweetly romantic story of second chances, facing fears and finding happily ever after.Hope Daniels would do just about anything for her friend Brady Collins. So when Brady’s life is turned upside down and he faces losing the custody rights of ...

    You are going to love Brady and Hopes story, Oh I can't forget about Sam too.You will never see this ending coming. Hunter as always has outdone it again. Her best book to date, wait don't I say that about every book? Well I think that you will feel the same way after you read Honeysuckle Dreams.This is a 5 star two times book. I HIGHLY recommend it!The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not requi...

    Every book I’ve read by Denise Hunter has been fabulous. She creates believable characters, charming hometowns, page-turning suspense, and heart-tingling romance. She’s truly a gifted storyteller!I’m so blessed to receive an advanced copy of Honeysuckle Dreams. It is the second of the Blue Ridge Romance novels, and serves nicely as a stand-alone, but Blue Ridge Sunrise will familiarize you with some of the characters of this book and their ...

    Denise Hunter produces a great story again! This story is part of the Blue Ridge series. This book focuses on Brady and Hope who are two secondary characters in the first book in the series. You do not have to read the previous book in the series to read this one, but the first one will give you some insight into this book. This book examines how we can let fear limit us instead of letting God lead and direct our paths. I really enjoyed this book...

    "He was so tired of trying to convince other people he was worthy of their love. Tired of being forced on people who didn't even want him."I have been a fan of Denise Hunter's a very long time and I've read all her books. She never disappoints. This second in her Blue Ridge Romance series is sure to please all her loyal readers and earn her new ones.Brady Collins is a full time dad to his baby son Sam since his ex wife died suddenly. He is also r...

    I feel...maybe dispassionate is the word. Not a bad story, definitely better than the first couple books in this series, but I wasn't anxious to turn every page and see what happened next. Hope and Brady are a sweet couple, but I confess I was hoping for more than a custody battle and a little romance. Aside from Hope's emotional struggles, I saw the plot coming a mile away in the last installment of this series. If you're a Denise Hunter junkie,...

    The author has given us a story of two longtime friends, broken from past relationships and yet trying to be there for one sweet baby, a catalyst to bringing them together, or not.Can these two forge a convincing union to make a home for a precocious infant, who desperately needs them. Will they be able to let go of the past, and move on with a picture-perfect marriage, at least in the eyes of others, or will their worlds come tumbling down?Answe...

    I enjoyed Denise Hunter's novel, Honeysuckle Dreams and would recommend it to anyone who looking for a good love story. I related to the theme of overcoming fears from past relationships that can hurt current relationships. Sometimes learning to trust and give our fears to the Lord is hard to do, but this novel is able to show healing without being preachy. I look forward to reading future books by in this series.

    This is the second novel I've read by Denise Hunter, and I'm officially hooked. Honeysuckle Dreams is a fantastic read. I love the Copper Creek characters, Hope and Brady. The growing romance is believable, not sappy. The feel of the little hometown of Copper Creek is charming and makes me miss the Blue Ridge mountains. Even if I wasn't lucky enough to read this advanced copy of Honeysuckle Dreams, I would add it to my bookshelf. I love this writ...

    I love the romance stories where the main characters start out as best friends and Hope and Brady are. She is between jobs and helps Brady out by taking care of his son. Brady's ex wife has recently died in a tragic accident. The deceased ex-wife parents want to claim custody of Brady's child. They claim he is not the biological daddy and has no rights to the baby. Hope would do anything to help her friend. I loved the chemistry of Brady and Hope...

    Fear. If there was ever a thing that robs your emotional & spiritual freedom, this is it. When we are so consumed by fear - there is no room to breathe. Both Hope & Brady have plenty to fear. Much of this story focuses on Brady's battle for his son. It is well written and clearly researched. I appreciate when an author puts in the time to cover all the details accurately. In the beginning you believe that Brady is the one shouldering the majority...

    I'm always drawn to this type of story and I really loved Brady and Hope. I especially loved the timeline of the book and how deep inside both their relationship and also their own personal lives we got to see. Hunter is a master of backstory for her characters. The more you learn about their individual pasts the more you realize why they are the way they are and it is very enlightening. I love seeing their personalities develop through their exp...

    Denise Hunter's newest novel, Honeysuckle Dreams, is a story where you become totally absorbed in the fate of the characters. Brady and Hope are compelling and complex characters that are so easy to fall in love with! As I read the story, I found myself completely absorbed in Honeysuckle Dreams, much to the dismay of those around me. I felt as if I was right there in Copper Creek watching this story unfold, and that's because of the well-written ...

    4 1/2 stars. After Blue Ridge Sunrise, I was really looking forward to reading Brady's story. It did not disappoint. This is a sweet story of friends to more. Hope is a really good friend to Brady. She's already watching Brady's baby son (the baby's mom. and Brady's ex-wife, died recently), and she loves doing it. Due to some other circumstances, Brady and Hope get engaged and later married. I loved seeing how their relationship developed, even w...

    Oh to be back between the covers with Denise Hunter in this wonderful series is a treat! From page 1, I was hooked and I read flat out to the last! The characters are so well-written, easy to relate to and even the idea of marrying a friend to gain the guardianship of not-his-baby seems believable, and well, quite reasonable! I was definitely rooting for this couple! The romance is lovely, the humour throughout enjoyable and the court case is edg...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. What I Enjoyed-For most of the book I really liked both Brady and Hope. I thought they made a good team and I enjoyed their blossoming romance. I liked how they interacted with Sam and their friends.-This is more of a Marriage-of-Convenience story than the Fake Relationship I thought it was, but I still liked that aspect of it. It’s one of my favorite tropes and I thou...

    Honeysuckle Dreams is a beautiful book, both inside and out. The story is so sweet and natural, and the perfect read for this “hopeless romantic”! It is a modern day marriage of convenience story, based on a custody situation. The path that leads Brady and Hope to consider marriage is one that makes sense in this storyline and is entered into with much prayer and consideration.Brady and Hope are truly likable characters. Each one carries burd...

    I really enjoyed Denise Hunter's Chapel Hill series and the Summer Harbor Series. They weren't like the majority of contemporary romance published. She digs deep into her characters and really hunts for the deep flaw in their lives and tosses it to the wind while creating a masterful climax with the a member of the opposite sex. But with her new series, A Blue Ridge Romance, I don't feel the same way.The writing is still top notch. Hunter really ...
