SO funny and SO romantic. Love it, love it, love it!OMG. I laughed so hard. In fact, I had to stop reading, Love Finds You in Holiday Florida, in bed because I laughed so much I was keeping my hubby up. And those kissing scenes. Oooo la la. Smokin’. All I can say is…Sandra Bricker has done it again. Done what you may ask. She’s written another fabulous story, that’s what. She has such a way of creating the most memorable, fun-loving characters. Characters you want to revisit time and tim [...]
I'm not sure what it is about this series that I love. Yes, there's romance (Love Finds You in.) but, they're not overly romantic, and I love a good, clean romance. Most of the stories I read have a main character who is in her teens, 20s or maybe even 30s, but Cassie was mid-50s. I loved how Cassie grew and explored herself. I loved that Surprise Me box she got as a gift. I loved the quirky side characters, especially Millicent. And I loved the easy banter between Cassie and Richard. Cassie is [...]
I really liked this book, from the laugh out loud scenes to the tear jerks. I'm going to have to venture over to Holiday one of these days just to check it out! It's not far from here. Only thing is, I'll be looking for Cassie and Richard and Millicent and others and I don't think I'll find them. This is my first read by Sandra D Bricker, but you can count on me to read more!
I really enjoyed this book. It had a fun, realistic story line. It was a sweet romance that didn't have you tied in knots waiting for everything to work out in the end. I'll be looking for more books from this author.
Once again, another book in this series that I loved!In this book, Cassie is a recently widowed woman who decides to spend Christmas at her vacation home in Holiday, FL and put it up for sale. The characters living in this town made me laugh all the way through the book. Millicent, her neighbor from across the street calls her "hunny-bunny" and I just hear her in my head. While there, Cassie meets Richard, a fellow widower who reminds her a lot of herself.The antics all the way throughout the st [...]
There's no holiday in her plans when widowed Cassie Constantine arrives in Holiday, Florida. All she wants to do is spruce up her vacation house and sell it in the shortest possible time so she can get back to her life in Boston. The house was her late husband's idea, and Cassie never had his enthusiasm for the house, the little community of Holiday, pink flamingoes, or, come to think of it, for life in general. Then the self-described 'predictable' Bostonian buys a 'Surprise Yourself' box, and [...]

She's just here long enough to sell a vacation house she shared with her late husband, and then she'll hightail it back to her gracious Boston brownstone. But then Cassie gets more than she bargained for with house renovations and wacky neighbors. Then there's Richard Dillon, the stuffed shirt she's paired with on the dance floor, who seems involved in a mystery and makes her heart beat faster than the rhythm of the quick step. But the biggest [...]
Funny lady Sandra Bricker quickly jumped onto the top of my favorite authors list with her warm and witty style. I was immediately drawn in to the story, and how could anyone not be with an opening we can all relate to?"Cassie rounded the curve of the street and pulled into the driveway, and there they were! Those horrible, neon-pink flamingos, grinning at her from beneath the palm tree in the front yard."Yeah, I've seen those plastic birds and feel just like Cassie about them. Cassie and her la [...]
SUMMARY: Boston legal secretary, Cassie Constantine is on extended holiday--and not very happy about it. When selling her late husband's vacation home becomes more of a challenge than she bargained, Cassie is stuck in Holiday. Will she let loose long enough to find new love?REVIEW: Another book by Sandra Bricker at her rollicking, hilarious best. Right of the bat I knew I was going to like this book because the heroine is a middle-aged widow. It was so nice to follow a romance between an older c [...]
Enjoyable book about two "older" widows/widowers finding love again. Cassie is in Florida to fix up and sell a vacation home she had owned with her deceased husband. Richard had moved to the small community with plans to retire with his wife when she passed away suddenly. Neither was really looking for a relationship or love but it was there staring them in the face.I was glad to read this book about "older" people (not people in their 20's!) and I could relate because while I'm not 55 yet it is [...]

This is actually the second time I have read this book. The first time around I thought it was a little cute, and I liked the fact that it had a small mystery. With this re-read, I'm not as enthusiastic about it. It is still a decent read, but the heroine's grief got a bit annoying at times throughout the book. It also got annoying that she kept denying what her husband saw in her, and that she couldn't make a choice about her living situation, especially since it was hurting the people she was [...]
What a fun read! The storyline was something different than you find in most romances. This time, the guy and the girl were widowers in their 50s, and each have absolutely no intention of falling in love . . . in fact, Cassie doesn't even plan to stay in Florida longer than it takes for her to get her house sold! I enjoyed how love snuck up on Cassie and Richard.There was also a bit of a mystery woven into the storyline, and I liked that, too. I also really loved the townspeople of Holiday, and [...]
Cute fluff book. I liked that the main character is in her 50s. She's mature but not afraid to step outside her comfort zone and learn something new about herself. And she proves that you don't have to be 20 to fall in love. Shocking, I know! ;) It was fun to read a book with a setting very near where I live, and that shared a lot of the strange phenomena that come with living in Florida from the Christmas lights on palm trees to the ubiquitous lizards to never getting to wear that cute sweater [...]
I originally wanted to read this book because of my familiarity with Holiday, Fl. But, I found that I really enjoyed this book for several reasons: it was very funny & light-hearted; I liked the story line of older characters finding a second chance at love after being widowed, & I really liked the characters in the story. Well-written & an easy, delightful read.

I enjoy reading the Love Finds you series. You think you know how they all are going to turn out, but there are twists and turns along the way and sometimes you they go in a different direction. This one is about love after losing your spouse.
This was the first book by Sandra that I read and I loved everything about it, all the way down to the pink flamingos.I have been a Sandra D. Bricker fan ever since, you can never go wrong with one of her books!!
This one was super original. A widow moves temporarily to Florida to ready the vacation home for sale. Not only does she encounter friendship, but all answers to a secret crossword puzzle, corporate greed and what you predicted.love.
