Friendships and family abound during a week of love, laughter, and happily ever afters. Catch up with your favorite characters and enjoy Bones and Sarah’s wedding while falling in love with the newest Whiskey-world couple, Penny Wilson and Scott Beckley in this Whiskey series novella.
When everything you want is right in front of you, but it's still out of reach…Penny Wilson has a successful business, more friends than a girl could ask for, and a boyfriend she’s madly and passionately in love with. Scott Beckley is honest, loyal, hands down the best lover on the planet, and absolutely gaga over his nieces and nephews. Scott’s a keeper…as long as Penny doesn’t ever want to hear those three magical words that would take their relationship to the next level. Scott escaped abusive parents at seventeen and was forced to find his way alone in the world. Even though it’s been more than a decade and he’s reunited with his estranged sisters and built a good life in Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, he’s still tortured by his past. Penny knows he loves her with everything he has, but for a girl who wants a family and a guy who is afraid of having one, love might not be enough.

Thank you to Melissa for my copy of this book. I LOVE this series and I’m a big fan of Melissa’s work. In The Gritty Truth we heard about Penny and Scott getting together but this book is really their story. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone.

Penny has been in the background of many of Melissa’s other books and I’ve been looking forward to hearing her story ever since Melissa mentioned she was writing this story. Penny runs an Ice cream shop called Luscious Licks. I tell you now I want to visit! Pronto! I have the biggest craving for Penny’s sundaes after reading this book! Penny is passionate about her work and has a bit of a sweet tooth (just like me!). I really liked Penny she is an easy character to like and root for. She’s just such a sweetie.

Scott has been through hell. If you have read the other books in this series then you will know parts of his story. Scott goes through quite a journey in this book. We see Scott come to his lowest and it was beyond heartbreaking to see this.

I really enjoyed this short and sweet story. My only complaint is that it was over so quickly! Oh and my now huge craving for ice cream sundaes in December! I’m definitely adding ice cream to my shopping list!
