Pumpkin Everything by Beth Labonte {Review}

Pumpkin Everything by Beth Labonte
Kindle Edition, 196 pages
Published September 1st 2018

Welcome to Autumnboro, New Hampshire, where the romance is sweet, the lattes are spicy, and more than leaves are about to fall...

After calling off her fall wedding, horror novelist Amy Fox is left with a broken heart, a mega case of writer’s block, and a serious aversion to all things pumpkin spice. When she receives news that her grandfather has broken his wrist driving through a Dunkin Donuts—literally straight through the front windows—five hundred miles away, in her hometown of Autumnboro, New Hampshire, Amy has no choice but to return to check on him. If she doesn’t make sure that he’s back on his feet, Grandpa may be moved into assisted living, and Amy’s beloved childhood home will be put on the market.

Knowing she must return, Amy worries about the only thing worse than pumpkin spice—a reunion with Kit Parker—her childhood best friend, first love, and entire reason for skipping town in the first place. As the two reconnect, a second chance seems possible...if only Kit weren’t holding on to a secret that just might unravel everything.

Set against the scenic backdrop of the White Mountains, New Hampshire, Pumpkin Everything is a small town, sweet romance, and the perfect way to kick off the fall season! A pumpkin spice latte wouldn’t hurt, either.

My Review: 3.5 Stars

Visiting New England in the autumn to enjoy the splendorous colors of the leaves is definitely on my bucket list and I loved visiting vicariously through the pages of this story. Autumnboro lives up to its name and everything pumpkin adds to the charm. 

Amy hasn't been home in years, but an accident involving her grandfather brings her back and right back to where she was before she left, giving her a second chance with Kit. Amy has a good connection with her grandfather, even though she hasn't been home in years, and I adored that relationship. 

Her reasons for skipping town were kind of childish, but she was young, so I'll give her that, but it kind of bugged me that things were just back to normal so fast. As a horror novelist, she based a lot of her characters on the quirky residents and had to deal with the fallout from that, so life wasn't perfect. 

I do enjoy a cute, clean, small town romance and thought this one was sweet and gentle and I could almost smell the pumpkin spice.
