Juliet Montgomery absolutely loves her small town of Blossom Glen, Indiana, and everyone loves her. Except for the fact that she’s a couples counselor who suffered a very public breakup that no one can forget. And now her boss asks her to take a step back...which is exactly when the town’s good-lookin’ and unusually gruff mayor offers her an unexpected job.

Jack Monroe absolutely loves being the mayor of his small town. Except when he actually has to talk to people. Can’t he just fix the community problems in peace? Like right now, he’s mediating the silliest dispute two neighbors could possibly have. When the town sweetheart steps up and solves everyone’s problems in five minutes flat, Jack realizes what this town really a therapist.

Juliet is able to soothe anyone—other than the surly mayor, it seems. But there’s a reason they say opposites attract, because all of their verbal sparring leads to some serious attraction. Only, just like with fireworks, the view might appear beautiful—but she’s already had one public explosion that’s nearly ruined can she risk her heart again?

Each book in the Blossom Glen series is STANDALONE:
* The Sweetheart Deal
* The Sweetheart Fix

The Sweetheart Fix by Miranda Liasson is the second book in her popular Blossom Glen series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone book.  I loved this small town, opposites attract story very much.  

Story Recap: 

Juliet Montgomery is a small-town couples therapist but after a very public breakup that hurts her credibility as a couples therapist.  

Jack Monroe is the Mayor of Blossom Glen, and he loves his town and his job, except for the many petty disputes between neighbors.  When Juliet accidentally finds herself in a city meeting, she helps to solve a dispute between bickering neighbors and Jack decides to hire her as a city therapist and help him with what he feels is the worst part of his job.  

When Jack and Juliet start working together, they each find a new appreciation for their careers and each other.

My Thoughts: 

I enjoyed returning to Blossom Glen for this new story.  Jack and Juliet are both sympathetic and interesting characters, and completely different.  Jack doesn’t like to talk to people, especially people who can’t get along, and Juliet is a social butterfly and loves to talk to people.  

Blossom Glen is an adorable small town that I would like to live in.  Jack is the kind of mayor I would want for my town, as he cares so much for his hometown. And Juliet is the kind of therapist I would enjoy.  

The author does a wonderful job of putting both Jack and Juliet in interesting and sometimes embarrassing situations that add some comic relief to this sweet romance.  


I highly recommend The Sweetheart Fix to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance.  I received a complimentary copy of this book.  The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  1. I must admit that I would be hesitant to go to a couples therapist in a small town–especially one who had had a public breakup. I would just need to remind myself that it doesn’t necessarily take two to make for a bad relationship, despite the old adage. Good review, Wendy!

    This sounds lovely. I always enjoy reading about small towns in the US as it’s so different to things over here in the UK

    • Thank you, Janette. I lived in a tiny village in England for a few years and it is quite different than a US small town.
