All is well in Holly Woods.
My best friend’s love triangle is now a happy little circle. My sister-in-law just gave birth to my gorgeous new niece who is the world’s best cuddler, and Nonna’s not on my back every ten minutes about the fact we’re getting married in one month.
Until the mayor’s niece—our baker for the wedding—commits suicide. At least, that’s what the note says. My gut says we’re talking a different kind of ‘cide.’ My gut also says I should stay well away, and in the interest of Drake’s sanity, I plan to.
But when life throws you an unexpected curveball… Sometimes the best laid plans need tearing up.
Even if you don’t mean to do it.
Happily ever after…
If Holly Woods survives this.

“Tell that to my ovaries.”
“I think I did last night when I hugged Casey.” He winks at me.
I playfully shove his chest. “It made me think. That’s all.” I slide my hand down his stomach and, in a small voice, say, “I think you’d be a great dad.”
He smiles, pressing his lips to mine. “And you’ll be a great mom. When you figure out how to be an adult.”
I hit him again. Much harder this time.
He laughs, stepping back and moving to the coffee machine. “Stop getting your panties in a twist over every little detail, okay, babe? Take everything one step at a time and let me help you. Instead of freaking out in your office alone, call me.”
“What if you don’t answer?”
He shrugs, hitting the button on the machine. “Leave me ranty messages and I’ll come with cupcakes,” he says over the gurgling of the coffee spitting into his mug.
“And just like that, he makes me forget why I was ever worried about marrying him,” I tease.
He simply looks over his shoulder, smirks, and throws me a second wink.
And an idea flies through my head.
A crazy, stupid, ridiculous idea.
The moment the coffee machine stops, the kitchen fills with silence.
One that makes my idea buzz loudly.
“Mhmm?” He turns around, still stirring sugar and cream into his coffee.
“What if we did it? Got married. Eloped but kinda didn’t.”
“You’re confusing me now, sweetheart.”
I’m confusing myself. But still… “We’re registered, right? We both have each other’s rings in the safe in the closet. Why don’t we just…do it?”
He stills, but his blue eyes swing from his mug to meet my brown gaze. “Are you suggesting we blow off the ceremony, grab our rings, and go see Father Luiz right now?
4TLOR Review ~ by Donna
Ok so I may be the only person who hasn’t read the entire series of the Holly Woods, and I’ll let you in on a little secret Burning Bond was my first. Therefore, I had to read this as a complete standalone and honestly it didn’t spoil my enjoyment.
Yes I will now be going back to the beginning to find out more about all of these fascinating characters and the world that has been crafted and created so perfectly by Emma Hart.
This has everything, humour, craziness, suspense, twists and overall a beautiful heartfelt story. The World of the Bonds has been opened up and they have welcomed me with open arms. I for one absolutely adore this about this story.
I honestly feel if you have read the series then you are seriously in for a treat and I can understand that this will mean so much more to you right now. But with that said the next time I read it, I’ll have started from the beginning and and hopefully it will have the same impact on me.
What I can say is that Emma’s writing style in whatever genre she writes never disappoints and this book definitely didn’t fail. I loved it and adored the craziness, I totally get why this series is a favourite of many
4TLOR Review ~ by Jordan
And I needed them! This book was everything. I loved the investigation going on, and all the antics everyone got up to.
This is one of, if not my favourite series, I just love the dynamic between Noelle and Drake. He knows that how to handle her because lets face it Noelle definitely needs handling. He’s sweet and loving but also such an alpha male, I think I need a Drake For myself.
I am not getting in to anything about the book as I know I will let slip something and I think everyone needs to experience this themselves without knowing anything.
So yes it’s the end of a spectacular series but what a way to end it. It’s ended on a high without the risk of it being dragged out to much. I know for sure that I will be coming back to these to read again soon enough.
