Stormi's Review: Blue Ink (Blue Mountain #3) by Tess Thompson
APC PUBLISHER: 4kids5cats RELEASED: January 21, 2019 GENRE: contemporary romance, family saga LENGTH: 291 pages FORMAT: ebook
Charlotte Wilde gives her heart to the wrong men. The last one left with her life savings and their nubile neighbor. Her first published cozy mystery is a flop. Her literary agent’s about to dump her. She has a serious case of writer’s block. And she’s dead broke.
Which is how she finds herself in rural Idaho looking after her former boss's elderly mother-in-law. While Mrs. Lanigan recovers from her broken hip, Charlotte expects to have plenty of time to focus on her writing. What she gets instead are two very large distractions: the patient herself, and the patient's son Ardan Lanigan.
As Charlotte dutifully sets out to help Mrs. Lanigan sort through a box of old letters, both women become consumed with the details written on every page. What seemed at first to be ordinary correspondence between Mrs. Lanigan's mother and an unknown man makes her question everything she thought she knew about the identity of her father.
Then there’s Ardan. Intelligent, quiet, and bookishly handsome, Charlotte feels an immediate connection to him. Unfortunately, he’s made promises to someone else. Ones he cannot break. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
When I first started this story, I didn't know how it could continue now that both Heywood sisters were happy, but I forgot about Charlotte, Bliss's ex-assistant. This is her story, and I am so glad she got one. Charlotte finds herself coming to the aid of Mrs. Lanigan, mother to Kevan, Ciaran, and the other Lanigan siblings after a fall breaks her hip. Charlotte finds herself in Idaho to help and is directly in the path of another Lanigan brother, Ardan. A magical and mysterious love story follows. This story can be described in one word. MAGICAL. From the beginning, it seems like nothing is going to keep Charlotte and Ardan apart. I fell in love with these two, who we meet briefly in the earlier books, hook, line, and sinker. The story was well written and easy to fall in love with. These two have great chemistry that jumps off the pages. As characters, they are so easy to love. This story brought a mystery and some painfulness, but they made this all the better. Once again Tess did not disappoint. Each book I read makes me love her writing so much more than I thought I could. She is definitely my new favorite author. I absolutely loved this book. It was my favorite so far.
