The First Kiss of Spring (Eternity Springs #14) Reviews
*received from NetGalley for review*
I'm usually pretty anal about reading series books in order, but when I received an email from NetGalley that this book was available for forty-eight hours I immediately downloaded it. I've not previously read anything by this author, but I've heard good things about her, and one friend compared her to Robyn Carr, so I was excited to give her a try.
Each chapter is prefaced with a short “Journal Entry”. We don't know at first which character is journaling, but ...more
Okay, let’s be honest. I am a sucker for strong and flawed people who figure out a way to make their lives work. In Eternity Springs, these people find a home and community that help them achieve their dreams. I love this world that Emily March has created. These books are wonderful.
His past is one of the best kept secrets in Eternity Springs and Josh Tarkington wants to keep it that way. His greatest fear? His past has cost him dearly and he has vowed never to taint anyone with his affections or to risk having his heart shredded again. Josh didn’t count on a chance encounter with the lovely Caitlin Timberlake who has come home to find that everything she left behind just may be exactly what she needs in her small town.
Caitlin is an idealist, perhaps sometimes a little too ...more
I jumped into this series late- The First Kiss of Spring is book 14 of the series, and my first Eternity Springs novel. I can say it can be read as a standalone. There were couples and past events mentioned that I assume are from prior books, however it did not detract from the story at all.
I really liked the heroine and hero, Caitlin and Josh. Caitlin is a determined woman. She knows Josh is the one for her. She just can’t understand him, and he doesn’t want to be understood. His past is where ...more

God bless good small-town romance contemporaries. This book had me on a roller coaster of emotions from the very first chapter. It's my first Emily March read, and for heaven's sake, I'd read anything she'd write if it's half as good as The First Kiss of Spring.
The chemistry between Caitlin and Josh was obvious from their first encounter. The fact that Josh owns a crippled dog called Penny for ...more
I'm not gonna lie - I was totally sucked in by this cover. I just love the look of the colorful house in a small town Colorado setting... the whole thing is just appealing. I have not read any of Eternity Springs books, and I have not previously read Emily March. So I was trying something new here. And I'm glad I did! I want to move to Eternity Springs now... and I definitely need Celeste working her matchmaking magic to set me up.
Side note - while I didn't feel lost without having read the earl ...more
Eternity Springs #14, Eternity Springs is where the heart goes to heal, and we've seen that in the previous thirteen book from near death experiences to falling in love again. Emily March has covered a wide range of issues and and trauma for these people and it never gets old, I love this series more now then when I first found it. It's the perfect place to fantasize about living there, about soaking in the hot springs and just letting the place heal whatever maybe wrong with your he ...more
Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for providing a copy for an unbiased review.
This book was a bit of a one-off for me for a couple of reasons. (1) I rarely like to jump into the middle of a series - I do love a good series, but I like to start at the beginning and read through in order. (2) I tend to shy away a bit from books that I think may get to be a bit too sweet or uplifting. “Eternity Springs” - it just sounded a bit too inspirational for my taste, especially when there’s a whole ...more
