Caitlin Timberlake's spent several years in New York City working her way up the corporate ladder. While her mom and dad are thrilled, Caitlin is not happy. She longs for true love and a blissful family life in the country.
She's in town for a friend's wedding. There, she gets stuck in a gondola with Josh Tarkington. He seems to be everything she wants, even if he is determined to remain a bachelor. What Caitlin wants, she's determined to get.
The longer he's around Caitlin, however, the more Josh is tempted. He's determined to stay single, but he can't help but also want Caitlin in his life. What's a guy to do?
The First Kiss of Spring is another book in the Eternity Springs series. I've read past books and loved them. I liked this one, but I didn't connect to it as much as I had previous novels. I liked Caitlin and her determination, but one of Josh's secrets fell short with me. I can't understand why he wasn't just honest from the start in terms of one of his big revelations. After going through what he had, I would have thought that being honest would have been a priority for him.
That niggle aside, the romance is steamy and I loved seeing how some of the other characters are doing. For that reason alone, The First Kiss of Spring is worth it.
