Review: Prescription for Love by Aimee Nicole Walker (Road to Blissville #7)

It never fails--whenever I read one of Aimee Nicole Walker's books, I can guarantee that it's going to leave me with a smile on my face. Her seventh addition to the Road to Blissville series is the latest one to do exactly that, and Prescription for Love was just what the doctor would have ordered as the perfect weekend read while lazing around in bed with my beloved furbaby Oliver snoozing by my side. This had Walker's patented combo of heart, heat, and humor but in hindsight, I realized that Walker's books also have another "h" I had completely failed to mention: home. After all, these stories, including the author's much adored Curl Up and Dye Mysteries, take place in this fabulous--but sadly, fictional--town of Blissville in Ohio and it's got the usually hungry for gossip yet well-meaning townsfolk as well as all these wonderful tales of people making it their home for their hearths and hearts.

Trenton Love and Tucker Garrison are interested in each other. The attraction is a given and the connection is undeniable, but their first date is a bust when Tuck's insecurities and doubts get the better of him. After all, he's a thirty-two-year-old firefighter who never went to college, was raised by his grandparents, and has never really been anywhere outside of his hometown of Blissville. On the other hand, Trent is a thirty-four-year-old pediatrician from a well-to-do family in Seattle who moved to Blissville to get away from his estranged parents and to be closer to his sister and her family living in Ohio. But when the two men decide to give dating another shot, that connection isn't only still present, it's stronger than ever. The more time they spend together, the more they fall for each other, but when Trent's intrusive present drags Tuck's past into the picture, their future could be in jeopardy.

Le sigh. I adored Trent and Tuck and the supporting of cast of characters--from Trent's sister, brother-in-law, and nieces to Tuck's Grammie and his fellow firefighters--were a hoot. Oh, and let's not forget Boris and Natasha, the two cats who brought the two guys together again after their disastrous first date. I loved the friendship and the romance and just how absolutely perfect Trent and Tucker are for each other. Yes, they had different backgrounds, and yes, they definitely didn't agree on everything, but their story--just like all the others in Aimee Nicole Walker's books--highlights that those differences are transcended by what they do have in common, and that includes their love for each other. This book made me smile and it made me laugh, and when things got tough for them, it made my heart clench in empathy. My prescription for you is to read Prescription for Love as soon as possible. Five stars. ♥
