Summary

When Lacey Winters escapes her stressful New York City life for a relaxing winter vacation in the Caribbean, she's ready to get some sun and enjoy a little time to herself. But her plans for peace and tranquility are shattered when she finds that her ex-boyfriend is already at the same resort - and with the same woman Lacey found him cheating with.

Reeling from the shock and determined to prove she's moved on, Lacey impulsively kisses a handsome stranger she spotted on the beach for all to see.

As for the stranger in question, Drew Mitchell was just looking for a fun getaway from his busy life in Chicago. He's surprised but pleased at this unexpected turn of events and agrees to pose as Lacey's new boyfriend.

As they explore their tropical surroundings as a couple, Drew finds himself drawn toward Lacey. Now, all he has to do is convince her their romance is real and strong enough to flourish once their vacation is over, while Lacey must decide if she's ready to take the leap and fall in love.

Once upon a Kiss is a sweet romance.

What a vacation souvenir!

You think it's a book about a vacation romance, but you are so wrong. It's so much more than that! Carina Rose will hook you into the lives of Drew and Lacey, as we enjoy their journey. It all starts with Lacey taking her birthday vacation alone, after a bad break up. When her ex shows up with his new girlfriend, Drew comes to Lacey's rescue as her new boyfriend. And love is now in the cards. This story is filled with romance and holiday magic. It's about long distances and compromise, determining their goals and seizing the moment, trust and most of all a boundless love. I loved every minute of this one. Finding out this is a debut novel was surprising, and I will be following Carina Rose now that I have found her! Just keep putting them on audio and I will be there!

Penelope Graham is new to me and she is a fantastic story teller! I love when I find a new narrator, and she is wonderful. Great voices, lots of style and a warmth that just pulls you in. I will be watching for more from her.

lovely holiday romance

Drew and Lacey, how could you not root for them from the very first meeting. Learning to love love, and trust again isn't always easy.

A good story!

This is so much more than just a sweet island romance. These two meet in the island but the story follows them back to their respective homes. They find out how life is with them not being together everyday. Can they survive the romance or will everyday life pull them apart?

Lacey is uncomfortable in her role of life. She had a terrible breakup and between that and her job she just doesn’t know where she belongs. As the story moves along she changes and becomes stronger. It is nice.

I did listen to this on audio. Penelope Graham is the narrator and did a good job. Her voice is easy to listen to.

Looking for a sweet soft story?

If you're looking for a sweet, soft story that's the right book. There's no angst and everything flows as it should, almost predictable, but sometimes you need to relax and hear only that everything is good and love conquers all. Narration is soft as the book, every voice is recognizable and clear.
