A Cute Hallmark-esque Story
4.5 out of 5 stars
I was thrilled to see that most of Monica McCallan’s books were being produced into audiobooks. Tapping into love was one of the ones I was most excited about. I know many stories are set in small towns, similar to Hallmark Christmas movies, but I found it hilarious that in this one, the characters talk and joke about it at least twice.
Tapping Into Love was a cute, funny, and heartwarming enemies-to-lovers sapphic love story. Set in a town roughly an hour outside of Portland, Maine (a place I’ve frequented since I was a kid), I knew that I was in for a book that the scenery would have me smiling as much as the story.
McCallan does what she always does and has scenes where I’m crying tears of happiness following a scene where if anyone walked by me, they’d see me smiling like a buffoon, just being happy that the characters have figured it out or found each other. Tapping Into Love was no different. McCallan knows how to tug at my heartstrings and take different aspects of the “she didn’t have all the information” trope and make it both lovely and believable.
Overall, mixed with the performance by Lori Prince, Tapping Into Love was really enjoyable. Leaving me feeling good and hopeful when I finished it. Full of real characters that I feel like I could meet in small towns like Maple Run.
Lucy Parsons wants absolutely nothing to do with the Westmoore family or the maple syrup they produce. When Sierra Westmoore blows back into town after her father’s death and tries to rent a room at Lucy’s family’s bed-and-breakfast, The Maple Inn, Lucy kicks her out on the spot. It doesn’t matter that Sierra hasn’t set foot in Maple Run in fifteen years—the Westmoores are not allowed.
But small towns don’t leave a lot of room to hide, and Sierra and her brother, Drake, have set their sights on improving the town’s opinion of them now that their father is gone.
Lucy doesn’t believe any Westmoore could have good intentions, and although she may have to play nice with Sierra, it doesn’t mean she’s going to like it.
