Book TWO in the Blueberry Springs series -- All STANDALONE novels from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jean Oram! 

One nature guide. One accidental forest fire. And one steamy investigator hot on her tail. 

Jen Kulak's good at running from her problems, so when she finds her best friend and boyfriend in bed together she burns rubber, never looking back. When Jen finds the quirky town of Blueberry Springs, she finally feels as though she's found a place she can call home, settle in, and get to know herself. With help from her boss, she rediscovers her love of nature and begins giving wilderness tours, which would be perfect if it weren’t for the fact that she may have accidentally just burned down the forest she depends upon for her fledgling business. And it would figure that Rob Raine, the man of her dreams, also happens to be the fire investigator hot on the case. 

Can Jen find the strength to fight the accusations that could cost her everything? Or will she run again, ignoring the sparks that fly between her and Rob, and torching her chances at a happily ever after? 

Find out in this small town contemporary sweet romance, the second standalone book in the Blueberry Springs series.

  • Quick, mindless read!

    By PelicanFreak
    Hi there - I anxiously waited for this installment of the Blueberry Springs series as I was a big fan of the prior two! While I'm generally not a fan of 'chick lit' or 'romance' I was promptly sucked into this series with the first installment as I am often drawn to small town life-settings. While Oram is consistent and maintains great continuity from one installment to the next, and the book did hold my attention, it was highly predictable as it was much like its predecessors. Probably I'll continue reading from this author as I do get into them and keep turning the pages, done before I know it. Anything that can at least do that is a great distraction from real life or a great way to spend time. I am honestly not sure if I liked it less than the other two in the series or if it simply was more predictable because I've come to like this author and subsequently know what to expect from her. I do hope she surprises me and I will keep reading - thus giving her the chance to. I do not mean to be harsh, only honest so I would like to say that I find nearly everything I read predictable - it is an infuriating thing about me that is not the fault of every writer, hollywood director, etc. in existence! Personally I did take note of some of her choice of wording, particularly in the 'girl talk' parts; perhaps in her circles they do talk like this - with a bit of reserve despite trying to sound dirty? I'd have been more blunt myself, but that is not always a desirable characteristic! Guess I'm just sharing what little bit I would change if given the chance. Ms. Oram produced another solid read, maintaining continuity which not enough people bother with, while helping us to get to know another character better in the small town of Blueberry Springs. I do hope to see more in this series.
  • Great addition to a wonderful series

    Rum and Raindrops is book 3 in the Blueberry Springs series. This is a fun story and a great addition to the Blueberry Springs series. I loved Jen and Rob. I'm looking forward to see what Jean Oram writes next about this fun town full of characters.
