I always enjoy it when one can revisit characters from other books in the series and see how their lives are coming along years later As the author has noted this is not a stand alone story you pretty much have to read the other books in the series to understand what went on in the past and who all the characters are otherwise you ll be a bit lost I enjoyed this epilogue I thought it was well written and gives closure to Page s relationship with her father Hugh FitzSimon It helps if you ve read the first 4 books in the series This is a novella that takes place uring Christmas 12 years after Page Iain s story Basically it catches you up on everyone s lives How many children they have ect Page s father Hugh has spent 12 lonely years by himself Now with the winter solstice approaching he gets a letter telling him of his wife s Billy Bragg death It gets pretty far out with her spirit visiting him telling him what he musto to make amends not ie alone Now I m not opposed to some paranormal in my romance but it just wasn t sitting right

I Pucking Love You (The Copper Valley Thrusters #5)
A hockey/fake date/not quite a virgin very wrong romantic comedy
You know those stories where an adorably misunderstood clumsy girl needs a fake date to a wedding so she asks her brother’s best friend and they accidentally fall in love?
I wish that was the kind of life I lead, but it’s not.
I don’t need a date to a wedding. I need a date to a funeral.
Clumsy sometimes fits, but then, that’s true for all of us, right? But adorable? No. Misunderstood? Nope again. I’m just your average girl, standing in front of a funeral invitation, asking it to be a winning lottery ticket instead.
And I don’t have a brother, or a best friend with a brother available, which means I’m stuck with Tyler Jaeger.
Sure, he’s a professional hockey player who also knows advanced calculus, but let’s say we’re not compatible and leave it at that. I should know. I am a matchmaker.
Not a very good one, but that’s beside the point.
I know a mismatch when I see one.
Still, Tyler’s what I’ve got, and I am not going to this funeral solo, so he’s what I’ll take.
After all—what could go wrong at a funeral?
I Pucking Love You is a hilariously wrong romantic comedy about the world’s worst matchmaker, a hockey player with a problem he doesn’t want to talk about, and an awkward date of convenience that everyone would prefer to forget. It comes complete with a cat working his way through his nine lives, all the sexy times, fish and chips, and a swoony happily ever after.
