Thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to participate in the blog tour for Camilla Isley’s new rom-com Sweet Love and Country Roads.
Sweet Love and Country Roads
Falling for the wrong cowboy never felt so good . . .
Samantha Baker is a high-flying movie producer living in New York City. She loves her shoes, drinking cosmopolitans, and wouldn’t trade the comforts of city life for anything in the world. But when her job is put on the line, Samantha has no other choice than to move to the middle of nowhere to straighten out the filming of her latest romantic comedy blockbuster.
Her new country home has no Starbucks, no Pilates, and the one pub in town has never heard of appletinis—only serves beer and whiskey neat. On the plus side, the views are scenic. And not just for the aerial shots, as the local eye-candy provides a welcome distraction.
At least until Samantha discovers a native cowboy, Travis Hunt, is the source of all her troubles…
And the battle begins.
Each has something the other wants, but as Samantha and Travis go head to head, they might discover the endgame has changed. When hate turns to heat, all becomes fair in love and war for these two sworn enemies who’ve been playing a game of hearts.
But will a roll in the hay be enough to make Samantha decide there’s no sex in the city and convert to country living?

My love for Camilla Isley’s romcoms is well-attested- they are sweet, short, fast-paced, and incredibly entertaining. What’s girl to do, but wait impatiently for Camilla’s next book?
The protagonist of Sweet Love and Country Roads, Samantha, is a hard-working, successful movie producer and a New Yorker to the marrow of her bones. When she is asked to move to a small town in Indiana to supervise a production, which has been stalling for some unknown reason, Samantha is absolutely horrified. Once on location, Sam discovers that the views are indeed gorgeous, if you are into rural landscapes (Samantha isn’t, give her New York skyline and traffic noise to make her happy) and cowboy washboard abs (yes, her landlady’s son Travis is a sight to behold), but work comes first, and Sam always valued brains over brawn. Well, the joke is on her, as there’s much more to Travis than just his cowboy looks and Sam might have found both the source of her work problems and her match in terms of intellect and steely spine.
Camilla’s sense of humour is as good as usual- she had me laughing out right from her encounter with Betsy, the cow that just wouldn’t move to let busy movie people pass- and why should she? If you love a good romcom, you’ll probably read this one in one sitting, as it is so much fun and difficult to put down. Fans of enemies-to-lovers and a small town setting, look no further!
Lots of banter, an easy-going, fun writing style, and a sweet, romantic message- communication, compromise, and commitment to working on your relationship will go a long way (or should I say long distance?). If you are a fan of strong, independent heroines and kind, attentive, smart heroes, you’ll love this couple and their journey to their own unique happily-ever-after.
Can’t wait to read Camilla’s next book!
