Book & Author Details:
Once Upon a Time in Bliss by Lexi Blake (writing as Sophie Oak)
Publication date: 16th July 2019
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Go back in time to Bliss’s first happily ever after…
CIA operative John Bishop arrived in Bliss, Colorado, seeking a respite from the high-stakes game of blood and lies that sent him to the worst corners of the world. A week playing the role of vacationing professor Henry Flanders would recharge his batteries, especially if he found a gorgeous woman to occupy his time.
Nell Finn has spent her life focused on helping others, but when she meets the tall and mysterious Henry Flanders, she can’t stop imagining what he might do for her. When Nell and her mother are threatened, Henry comes to her, offering his protection and comfort.
But as the threats escalate out of control, Henry discovers that the beautiful and innocent Nell is much more than a plaything. Can he save the woman he loves without exposing the secrets that would drive her away?
This is hands down, my favourite of the series. I had thought, given that I had missed some of the earlier books, that I might have missed Nell and Henry’s story (particularly as he is referred to in other series). I’m so very glad that I didn’t.
There is, I think, something very pure about this story. And that is fitting, given that Henry is essentially born in Bliss. No game playing. No massive relationship dramas. Just two indviduals working out how to be together.
This is simply lovely.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
