Dreaming of Dayton

Dreaming of Dayton
A Barbourville Novel #4
Carolynn Carey
Jill has given up an established career as a counselor to follow her dream of owning a restaurant. She moves to the small town of Barbourville to be near her best friend. One morning she arrives at work to discover her cook is out sick for the week and a man she never expected to see again is pounding on her door. Jill has been in love with Dayton forever. But her move to Barbourville convinced her that she needed to let go of that dream. So what is he doing here messing with all of her plans?
This is the fourth book in the series and it was obvious because of all of the references to the other characters. But this didn't deter from the story. It made me want to check out the other three books. The book was small with only about 180 pages. But the story was cute. The characters were fun and realistic. I think my favorite character was actually a secondary character named Millie. The romance was sweet, but not over the top. The author could have done quite a bit more with the story and made it into a more full length novel. There were some leads that were dropped and characters that needed more depth. But overall it was a gentle southern romance that I enjoyed.
I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
