Reviewed: Westmore by Carol Cassada...

Westmore (Volume 1)
Set in a fictional New England town, follow the lives of three families; The Greens, the Braxtons, and the Reynolds. The Greens: * Widowed matriarch Charlotte never thought she could find love again after the death of her husband Michael, until handsome Detective Bryant comes to her rescue. * Youngest son Peter returns home from college with his new girlfriend, who's ten years older than him, and is a problem for Mama Charlotte. * Scott and Alicia are singing siblings who are on their way to the top, until tragedy strikes one night. The Braxtons: * Andrew Braxton is a ruthless and powerful businessman who runs his household the same way he runs his company, with an iron fist. Upon learning his son Wayne plans on abandoning the family company, he'll do everything in his heart to stop him from leaving. The Reynolds: * After the divorce Laura Reynolds and her daughter Megan move back home with her father, where she plans to start life anew, but little does she know that it's not easy to escape your past.
Westmore is the first book that I have read from Carol Cassada. Carol describes this series as "a romance novel meets soap opera." And a soap opera is exactly what her style of writing reminded me of. Westmore revolves around the characters of three different families and the story continues to switch back and forth between these characters. The three families consist of the Greens, the Braxtons, and the Reynolds. My favorite couple is definitely Scott Green and Melissa. I just love them. I also like Jacob Reynolds and Alicia Green and I can't wait to see what happens with Charlotte Green and James. Westmore is a good read that definitely has that soap opera feel. There is no sexing at all, which was disappointing and I will warn that it ends in a major cliff~hanger that left me eager to read the next book. 3 out of 5 rating.
