Junebugs, Haunted Houses, & Jack-O'-Lanterns by Kaitlin Maitland


Stacey is tired of sharing Donal with his job at McKinloch’s Pub. She wants a husband who puts her first. Besides, sometimes being married to the hottest guy in the room means you spend all your time wondering who else is volunteering to warm his bed.

Donal has never wanted any woman but Stacey. There is no way he’s letting her walk away from their marriage without a fight, even if he has to step out of his comfort zone and sweep her off her feet. Fortunately, chemistry is on his side, if only he can make Stacey understand that the sparks they have in the bedroom could be carried over to the rest of their lives.

It doesn’t take Stacey long to realize that the guy you have might be exactly what you need. After all, nothing worth having comes easy. Worse, she’s starting to realize that she might have unfairly judged the one guy she needs to make her life complete.

Veronica☆☆☆
Once you get into this story it is easy to see how Donal and Stacey ended up on the road to divorce. Stacey is very insecure, immature and believes everything her stuck up parents say. Donal on the other hand works too much simply doesn't communicate with this wife so the ideas planted in hear head grow unchallenged.

I really felt for Stacey at the start of this book and I understood her insecurity. As the story went on Stacey's immaturity started to drive me nuts. Donal wasn't much better. I wanted to yell at him to just talk to his wife. I really wanted to bang their heads together or lock them in a room until they sorted themselves out. Donal and Stacey are a very hot couple though and this is a good story. It left me wondering how many real life couples on the road to divorce are in the same situation – too scared and stubborn to talk to each other.

In this the third book in the series we start just as the last book ended. Unexpectedly, Donal's soon to be ex-wife turns up at the wedding with her new beau in tow. However, he does not seem like a nice guy at all. As we discover, Stacey has been fed some terrible untruths, and as the book unfolds all is not as it seemed.

This is a departure from the previous two stories, as Donal already has a wife, even if she is petitioning for divorce. It does a great job of dissecting a relationship and the issues on both sides. Loved the way that it was resolved, and the learning that both leads had to do to get there.

I'm going straight onto book 5. (I started with book 4, and have only just had time to catch up on the rest!)
