I recently reviewed the last True North series book, and it was also great, and yet here’s another. It’s amazing how Sarina Bowen can put out so many high quality books so quickly. I’m amazed. I have a feeling the series has been pointing in this direction for a long time however, because it intertwines so much with the previous books, going all the way back to the beginning.
We finally find out who nearly ran over Zara. We found out who Benito has been carrying a torch for. We find out more about what the Shipleys and Rossis were like as teenagers. And of course, mean old Jimmy Gage. I think his plot even wraps up Jude’s story with the weird drugs.
Skye and Benito’s story has a lot going on: teenage love and misunderstandings, abuse, the damage that can be caused by neglect in childhood, people making wrong choices, women not sticking up for themselves at work, the importance of female role models in the workforce, and the portrayal of consent.
God, this woman could rip my heart in half again. I know it, and I don’t even care.
Of course, I recommend starting from the beginning with Bittersweet, Griffin and Audrey’s story. There are unique dynamics and stories to each couple, but they all center around the same area, from different perspectives. The sexy times are hot, the stories are sweet and heartwarming, and there’s real emotional plot development with all of the characters. You can’t go wrong visiting this part of fictional Vermont.
