Title: Autumn Deception

Author: N. Jade Gray

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Book Blurb: 


Money can’t buy you love…


Stressed and burned out, Sierra Scott is coerced by her grandmother into taking a vacation to Harts Valley, Oklahoma for the annual apple festival. Owning and running a multi-million dollar company is a piece of cake compared to deflecting the matchmaking efforts of a determined senior citizen and her sidekick. Before long, Sierra needs a vacation from her vacation.


Widowed Sheriff Cade Collins isn’t prepared for the naked female hiding by Dooley’s pond when he responds to a disturbance call. His days are filled with juggling his job and raising a teenage daughter. No matter how strong the pull of attraction, he simply can’t afford to fall for a woman who is out of his league.


My Review: 


Sierra should’ve known her grandmother was up to no good. Autumn Deception is a funny romance with zany characters, dialogue, and situations. It’s easy to get addicted to this story. There were times when I read late into the night because I had to know what happens next.


Let’s start with the characters. Sierra works too hard and is in need of a vacation. She relents and takes a vacation in her grandmother’s town. From this moment on, she’s at the mercy of her matchmaking grandmother. Poor Sierra. I felt for her and her plight. Sierra is a likable heroine many women will relate to. Cade is a terrific hero and a perfect partner for Sierra. Sure, he’s a single dad raising a daughter. Sure, he’s small town while Sierra is big city. They are opposites in many ways and that is part of their charm. Sierra’s grandmother is a hoot and a half. She’s hilarious. The characters are so vibrant, so quirky, they are the reason why I loved this book so much.


This book reads more like a rom com than a pure romance. The dialogue is full of one-liners. The writing is comedic. An A+ in my view. Would I read it again? Heck yeah!


My Rating: 5+ stars
