Something's brewing between friends. Rachel Miller knows opening a café with coffee and pastries will make her struggling bookstore the place to hang out. But when the bank turns her down and her best friend Shane steps in, she vows business will never ruin their friendship. Gourmet ice cream maker Shane O'Hare knows food, not women. To sweep Rachel off her feet, he secretly sells his beloved '67 Shelby Mustang and becomes a partner in her café. And then she sets him up with a friend. As they build the café together and Rachel learns what Shane has sacrificed for her, she finds herself falling for him. Now way too much is riding on the success of this business venture - her career, her best friend, and her heart.
Another fun story in Clover Park
Another charming story by Ms Gilmore in her Clover Park series.
This time we have Shane O’Hare ,and Rachel Miller. Shane is the owner of the town’s gourmet ice cream shop and has been in love with Rachel. Rachel, is the owner of the local bookstore, that is on the verge of closing if she doesn’t create a draw . Her solution is opening a cafe next to the bookstore. She considers Shane a friend . She tends to gravitate to losers as dates, while Shane stays in the sideline.
Shane decides to go into partnership with her and sacrifices a special possession to make her dream come true.
But more than the storyline, it’s a story of a woman full of insecurities. Her way of keeping men and marriage away from her, is to date losers. A woman who fears to give part of herself especially to Shane.
We are also reminded that families can be messy but loving , that life is not perfect but that love does overcome everything , when you find the right partner.
Thank you , Ms Gilmore , for another “trip” to Clover Park and it’s inhabitants.

Another great story in the series!! Shane is all kinds of yummy! Rachel is slightly annoying at times but she comes around. These two are great friends and Rachel doesn't want to do anything to hurt that relationship but Shane is looking for more. He always has been and now is the time to do something about it. This book takes us along for the crazy ride as their relationship works it way from friends to business partners to lovers. Problem is Rachel doesn't have faith that she can really sustain a relationship with any man so she fights Shane at every turn. Will she be strong enough to really give them a try??
I listened to this one on audio and loved it! The story is great and the narration is excellent. This is one I highly recommend.
Bad Taste In Men: Clover Park, Book 3
Shane has had it bad for Rachael for a long time now and she just wanted them to be friends. When Rachael wants to expand her bookstore into a cafe and needs a backer Shane steps up and puts up the needed money. He is now a partner and that scares Rachael. She is so afraid it will mess up their friendship. She is determined to pay him back ASAP! The more he wants to make them more than friends the more she backs away.
This is such a fun story in a lot of ways. The town is its own character! Shane's brothers and their wives, as well as Maggie, their grandmother and Barry another storeowner add so much to this hot romance between Shane and Rachael. I got very irritated with Rachael because she couldn't make up her mind. She wanted Shane and she didn't want Shane. The scene where it finally hit her about who Shane really was as a man was extremely moving. It took a long time for her to see what was right in front of her and when she did she finally got it!
Another hit for Kyle Gilmore. I can't wait for the next one!
