Kauffman returns to the Maine coast with her third book in the Bachelors of Blueberry Cove series. While her usual trademark humor isn’t in abundance this time around, she continues to spin a heartfelt tale with multidimensional characters set against the allure of small town life. The story packs an emotional punch that makes the lead characters’ relationship all the more poignant.

Former Army Ranger turned town hermit Ford Maddox and diner owner Delia O’Reilly share a tragedy that has shaped their lives. But more than that, they share the memory of the one night that they spent together. With the threat of losing her diner looming over Delia, and with a little push from his well-meaning sister, Ford steps out of his self-imposed isolation to help Delia attempt to save her business. Will Ford and Delia finally get their happily-ever-after? (KENSINGTON, Sep., 316 pp., $14.00)
