Every autumn, Moonbright, Maine, is the picture of charm with its piles of crisp leaves, flickering jack-o'-lanterns...and a touch of the sweetest kind of enchantment.

Getting dumped was not how Lara wanted to start her day. Toss in an increase in her rent and an unsustainable job and things might not be able to get much worse. However, after a trip to Bellaluna's, she scores a new job working for Mayor Jack Hanson - planning the Halloween parade. But as the two work to create the most memorable Halloween celebration Moonbright has ever seen, old feelings are stirred up.

Here we are again in Moonbright!! This town sure loves Halloween and that bakery. 

This time we follow Lara and Jack. Lara is having a DAY. Her job is in jeopardy because of slow business, she got dumped, and now her rent is going up. Joyful. However, things start looking up after a trip to Bellaluna's. She scores a free cookie and then a new job working for Jack who is the mayor and needs someone to plan and execute the Halloween parade. As they work together, feelings rise. 

This was absolutely adorable. Lara is cute and Jack is hawt. The two are perfect for each other. They knew each other in High School, but they were on different social levels so they never really got to know each other. I really love how this was friendship and then more. It felt natural. I honestly don't think they needed that magical cookie to realize they are soulmates. 

There wasn't much drama here and I appreciated it. Sometimes it is nice to see a couple just be together and fall for each other. However, I wish there had been something. Not drama, but something they had to overcome together. Everything was a little too easy. Even the "drama" at the parade seemed like nothing. 

The narrator was good. Her male voices still sound all the same, but it's not a huge cast so you can't really notice. Maybe that is why she didn't need to change it up too much? I am curious to listen to more by this narrator. I've listened to a few in the past. 

Overall, this was very sweet. A beautiful couple who are saints. They deserve the best in life. I do wish we had something. Everything went a little TOO easy for everyone. I'll give this 4 stars.

Oh, this sounds perfect for a quick read. You wrote, "Here we are again in Moonbright!!" Does this mean there is an earlier book in a series?
