Review: Positively Pippa (Ghost Falls #1) by Sarah Hegger

rom author Sarah Hegger comes an exciting new series set in small-town Utah, where secrets don t keep for long and love turns up in the most unexpected places.

For Pippa Turner there s only one place to go when her life self-destructs on national TV home to Ghost Falls, and her heavily perfumed, overly dramatic, but supremely loving grandmother, Philomene. If anyone will understand how Pippa s hit makeover show was sabotaged by her vengeful ex, it s Phi. But she s not the only one who s happy to see her and Pippa can t help but wonder if Matt Evans, her gorgeous high-school crush turned Phi s contractor, is game for a steamy close-up
Matt owes his whole career to Phi and her constant demands to embellish the gothically ridiculous house he built for her. Getting to see red-headed, red-hot Pippa is a bonus, especially now that she s no longer the troublesome teenager he remembers. He s willing to stay behind the scenes while she gives her own life a much-needed makeover, but not forever. As far as he s concerned, their connection is too electric to ignore. And the chance to build something lasting between them before she can high-tail it back to Hollywood is going to the top of his to-do list

Paperback, 352 pages
Expected publication: May 30th 2017 by Zebra

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  The release date is slated for May 30th.

This story is the first in a new series for Hegger.  As I had been previously introduced to her work, I was excited to see what she had in story for us with this new series.

This story sticks pretty much to the formula one is familiar with in this genre, there is not too much to surprise the reader.  In other words you get exactly what you expect from this genre when you pick this book up.  Solid characters, hot men, steamy bedroom scenes, and just enough angst to keep the story moving along.

What I enjoyed the most about this story was some of the eccentric characters that were along for the ride.  From the "Diva" Phi, to the perky Bella, there were a lot of fun characters to get behind.  Then there is the whole Evan's clan.  An entire family of hot men?  Yes please!  Take their mother out of the picture (talk about train wreck) and I could focus in on these brothers all day long. 

As the first in a series, I think this has given me enough of a taste to keep an eye out for the future instalments of the Ghost Falls series.  A sneak peak of the next story, featuring Bella and another one of the Evan's brothers) was provided at the completion of this one and it looks like it will be good.   I look forward to it

About the Author

Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.

Mimicking her globe trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother.

She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books
