This was a great story. I loved the themes – “letting go and starting over” and “finding your own passion”. The chemistry between Dalton and Hazel is also a lot of fun as they are learning just the right mixture. It’s light read that will satisfy. – Amazon reviewer

Dalton is a delightful and well-written story that speaks of letting things go that hold you back and about finding your way to what you are passionate about.  The story line is fresh and moves along at a steady pace while being engaging, captivating and attention grabbing. This story hooked me from the very start and I could not put it down. The characters are easy to connect with and well developed. Vivi Holt knows how to create a story with enough romance and action to keep the reader entertained and interested. This is another fantastic book from a remarkably talented author. – Between the Coverz

Wow! This author has done a smashing job of writing this book. I got so involved in the characters that I feel I had breakfast with them over a stack of pancakes. How did you do this to me, Ms. Holt? The character development made me feel part of the family and I knew all of them. Hazel is a strong character with lots of talent; Dalton has the biggest heart in Georgia; Eamon and Parker are wonderful brothers; and, the storyline is excellent. I felt myself smiling here and there throughout the book and I didn’t want to stop for anything. (Let the phone ring!) I loved this story and highly recommend it for anyone. It is a stand-alone book, but I hope we get to hear more about these characters in the future. – Amazon reviewer

She’s definitely outdone herself with Dalton this time!! I loved it – Goodreads reviewer
