Call Her Mine

Harmony Pointe Series

If a woman can’t find love in the quaint town of Harmony Pointe, it’s sure to find them—whether they’re looking for it or not. Here, the remaining single Dalton siblings are about to discover that they’re next in line to get swept away by love. A sweet and sexy spin-off of Melissa’s beloved Sugar Lake series.
Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.
Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.
But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after . . . just not one either of them expects.

The first book in the new Harmony Pointe series is all about friends to lovers and unrequited love. While crossover characters from the Sugar Lake series appear in Call Her Mine, it isn't necessary to have read any of these novels but they do come highly recommended if you do.

When the lives of best friends, Ben Dalton and Aurelia 'Rels' Stark get complicated because it isn't normal to find a baby on your doorstep!

I liked how Ben quickly accepts the unexpected situation he finds himself in even before official clarification has been obtained. It's especially welcome after we find out how he coped to distract himself when Rels was dating other men. This latter fact tainted his character but 'manning-up' to the consequences of his actions is admirable. Rels is the best friend anyone would be happy to have and Ben is a lucky man even though he doesn't deserve her support and love. Yet, the tricky situation highlights how close Ben and Rels are and how the foundations of their unconditional love for each other make it easy for them to become a couple within a short space of time, now they are both unattached. However, nothing is straightforward and both have to make sense of their pasts and communication skills to move forward, together.

Many times throughout the novel where the protagonists' reactions are a bit over the top for this 'less is more' reader like myself. The flamboyant verbal gestures accentuate the slapstick humour generated by two hopeless adults with zero childcare skills. Even though it's a bit over the top, any parent like myself will raise a smile and laugh out loud at their comedy of errors in a 'been there, done that' way.

Overall, a fabulous start for what promises to be another winning trilogy from Ms Foster. The storyline is engaging, the characters are like friends with a delightful community backdrop. What's not to like?
