Reaching for Roots

Cartoonist Emmy Rivera loves everything about the quirky town of Bloo Moose, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to put down roots. That’s never worked out for her in the past. Undercover agent Ryan Ward is always on the move, taking down criminal masterminds like the one who caused his dad’s death.

Ryan doesn’t expect the only connection to his latest target to be a sweet and sexy cartoonist who makes him want to rethink everything. Putting down roots might not be so bad. If the lies don’t destroy them first.

***Reaching For Roots is the seventh book in the Bloo Moose Romance series by author Jemi Fraser. Each book can be read as a standalone. The book contains some strong language and sexy times.

My thoughts:

There is a place I want to physically visit, there are people I’d love to interact with, and shops I want to peruse looking to buy those unique, one-of-a-kind items. But I can only do these things in my mind. Why? Because this place, these people, and those things only exist in the beautiful fictional world created by an author with a sharp eye for detail and a keen sense of human relationships.

In the latest installment in the series, REACHING FOR ROOTS, readers get a look at the world of cartoonist Emmy Rivera, her insecurities, and her shy reach for happiness. Inserting himself into Emmy’s life is Ryan “Mitchell” Ward. Ryan is on a mission to do whatever it takes to take down a very bad guy. Ryan doesn’t realize he’s going to lose his heart in the process.

Through vivid descriptions and realistic dialog, the author quickly pulls you in to make you feel like a part of the story. The chemistry between the two main characters, enhanced by the quirky influence of the secondary characters, makes the story flow smoothly and quickly with many moments of amusement.

The author paints a strikingly intense story with her words connecting the reader with the whirlwind of the characters’ emotions. You’ll be laughing and sighing, and doing a little fanning for the smoldering sparks, but be sure to have the tissue nearby for the heart wrenching moments sprinkled about.

This is a story of overcoming challenges and fears, honoring loved ones, believing in better times, community support, friends, and taking chances. REACHING FOR ROOTS is a heart-warming romance filled with drama, suspense, and fun.

This is the seventh installment in the Bloo Moose Romance series but can be read on its own. This is a series where you find yourself wanting to know the story of ever person in Bloo Moose. The author has created characters you’ll come to love and a series you’ll hope never ends.

If you’re looking for romance, adventure, suspense, loads of fun, memorable characters, and stunning settings, then REACHING FOR ROOTS is the perfect solution for all your reading desires.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope I’ve enticed you to check out the Bloo Moose Romance series (if you haven’t already). Don’t you just love books that make you want to visit the town in the story?

FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the author. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.
