Back Cover Blurb:

Perfume chemist Josh Stevens has spent years making a life for himself in New York City and climbing up the corporate ladder of Kiss and Makeup, a global cosmetics company. Though his cousin, Emma, whips up soul mate predictions with their late grandmother’s pink enchanted mixing spoon each Monday during Batter Up night, he’d rather experiment with vanilla perfume oil than vanilla extract any day. Buttermilk Falls and magic are not for him.

Little did he know that a run in last summer with the one woman from his hometown he’s tried all these years to forget would turn his bachelor life upside down and bring him back for good.

Caitlin Reynolds just needs a second chance. Sure, she’s done some questionable things in the past, but as the new owner of the Majestic Theater she is determined to turn her life around, contribute to the town’s livelihood, and prove to all of Buttermilk Falls that she’s more than the spoiled rich girl who got pregnant.

While Josh and Caitlin adjust to their new normal, they begin to realize just how strong their feelings are for one another. But are they destined for each other? A ghost who likes to roam the Majestic theater in a wedding dress and watch classic movies might be able to answer that.

My Review:

This light-hearted, fun romance held me captive from cover to cover. Neeley makes Buttermilk Falls the town that you’re dying to go to in order to find your own true love. The mix of romance and real people, with a dash of romance on the side, makes this the perfect way to spend a day, lost within the pages of this unforgettable novel.

Caitlin and Josh were pricelessly endearing in this one. I loved the way that they danced around each other without admitting what they were truly feeling. The comical and at times heartbreaking interactions between the two led me to get to know them on so many levels. Neeley’s character development was phenomenal. It is all woven into the seamless plot of the tale, creating a one of a kind approach to romance (and baking). I loved the details as well as the overall plot.

Neeley never fails to charm and enchant me with her magical writing. KISS AND MAKE UP was no exception. My final thoughts? More Batter Up Night please!
