Harvest Grove News:
Another Halloween season is upon us! As usual, please be mindful of the movie fans traveling from Vine Street to Cinnamon Way.

Favorite bar owner, Ford Prescott, is back in town for his yearly stay, making this his sixth October in Harvest Grove! Be sure to welcome him warmly when you see him at the Wicked Pub and Grub. Single ladies – try not to overwhelm the poor man with so many baked goods this year.

Sidney Tanner wants residents to know her Severed Head Succulents will be buy one, get one free before the countdown to midnight begins on October Eve. Since it’s likely she’ll be in jail at some point that night, please text her your orders.

Still seeking volunteers for various events around town:
*Someone to organize pumpkin carving night at the Gore House.
*An extra, bloody cheerleader for the yearly viewing of The Babysitter’s Last Halloween. Costume will be provided.
*A brave soul to keep an eye on the Tanner girls this month. We don’t want a repeat of last year’s corn maze incident, or the mashed potato fiasco in poor Jarvis’s yard previously.

We assume Ford will be volunteering for that last one, since he and Sidney are always joined at the hip when he’s in town. A little bat tells me these October best friends will be heating things up in town this year. Sparks will be flying–no offense to Colleen or the Tanner girls who set her garage on fire–and these two might just be carving out some time for love this Halloween!

Fasten your sheet belts, Harvest Grove! Let’s hope when the clock strikes midnight on October 31st, our dear Sidney won’t be ghosted again…

“I don’t just want a fling; I want everything.”

Harvest Grove is a special place that brings all things Halloween to life in a big way. When Sidney first encountered Ford, she never expected to feel anything for him. And when he rejected her flirtations, she accepted just being his friend for six long years. But with November first looking over her, Sidney is ready to take a stand.

This was such a cute story. I love Tara’s ability to twist sweet with steamy and create magic. This town was beautifully described, and I totally want to move there.

I loved the characters in this book. If there are three things you can absolutely expect in a Sivec book, it’s going to have epic one-liners, going to have spicy scenes, and the characters will steal your heart.

Sidney was such a great leading lady. Sassy, funny, and loving. Ford was the best leading man, his charm and wit balanced with Sidney so well. I loved the side characters so much, though I think if Tess ever met Penny and Ginger, there would be five-alarm trouble and tears (IYKYK).

I loved reading about Sidney and Ford and their lack of communication skills. I loved the friendships, the chaos, and even the hot dogs on sticks in the front yard.

This is the perfect spooky season book. There are beautiful doses of fall, embracing the beginning of the Halloween season, and of course, pumpkin-flavored things.

There is something magical about reading a themed romance book, especially when it features strong women, devoted men, and solid pop culture references.
