✱✱Book Review✱✱ Starts with You by Claudia Burgoa


From USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa comes from a small town, friends-to-lovers romance.

I’m not sure how I ended up in Heartwood Lake.

One minute, I’m trying to help a friend, and the next, I’m being shipped off to a small town.

And the only person to blame for my predicament is Callahan Thorndale.

It was my mistake for letting my guard down.

Confession time: I have a soft spot for Cal.
A debonair FBI agent who also happens to be a billionaire.
He’s kind, intelligent, and always there when you need him.

He’s also my best friend.

How could I not help him?
How could I not fall?

But, in my line of work, I can’t trust anyone.
I shouldn’t get attached.
I shouldn’t let anyone into my heart.

Now, I have to find a way out of Heartwood Lake with my heart still intact.

Starts with You is a novella. The prequel to the Heartwood Lake Secret Billionaire Series - an emotional rollercoaster that combines the intense drama of Succession and the hilarity of Schitt's Creek. A must-read.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

A new small-town romance series from Claudia Burgoa equals one very happy me! Starts with You is a very quick read, basically just a taste of Heartwood Lake to introduce the series. We meet several characters, some crossing over from other series and some new characters to meet and fall for. Front and center are Callahan and Lake. We only get a hot minute with them, but it was enough that I'm anxiously waiting for the first novel in the series. These two have the potential to really mess with us (in all the best ways, of course). After reading this prequel, I'm betting that Claudia has loads of feels coming at us. So, if you like small-town romance series, I'd suggest grabbing this prequel to meet some of the characters of Heartwood Lake and get ready to dive into the first novel in the series.
