  1. ARC REVIEW Back again in the quaint little town of Nugget California In the last book Second Chances we are introduced, quite dramatically, to Samantha Dunsbury and almost immediately you see sparks fly between her and Nate Breyer Nothing really bad happens in this story for the exception of the cook leaving the Lumber Baron Inn with no notice, the Abernathy s still trying to sabotage the Baron, and the stubbornness and blind dislike Nate has for Sam.Nate has his reasons for not liking Sam, but [...]

  2. 3.5 stars The Nugget series is one of those series that I enjoy because I love that small town feel of it You get to not only come to know the H h but all of the various, quirky characters that inhabit the town and end up wanting to know and about all of them So I was excited to get my hands on Starting Over after getting a glimpse of the tension between Nate and Sam, and while I enjoyed the book overall I have mixed feelings about Nate and Sam.Sam Samantha I actually really liked, and that wa [...]

  3.

  4. This is the fourth book in the Nugget series by Stacy Finz I read the first book and really enjoyed it I have not read books two and three but didn t really need to in order to love this story I certainly will catch up with the two I missed because the people of Nugget are truly interesting characters This story centers around Nate and a New York City socialite named Sam I loved Nate in the first book, I adore him in this book He comes off like a jerk, but you can t help but believe there is to [...]

  5. Even though this is the fourth book in the series I adored it then the first book This one was focused on the two main characters then the whole town I didn t like Nate in the beginning and by the way he was acting towards Sam he was a total ass but as the book progressed Nate got better I loved the way Sam and Nate would bicker Even though they were fighting attraction their relationship worked out for the best I think Nate was a little unfair to Sam but I liked how Sam stepped up to the plat [...]

  7. I really enjoyed this book The main characters Nate and Samantha work perfectly together Neither seem to fit the small town image He s a polished businessman splitting his time between Nugget and San Francisco, while she s a New England old money socialite working in a small town hotel Together though, they seem to be right where they should be Both have been hurt in the past, so trusting and loving each other won t come easy but when it does it s honest perfection A great read that I highly rec [...]

  8. Starting Over is the fourth book in Stacy Finz s Nugget series While it s an enjoyable story, I don t feel it s quite as good as the first three books in the series My main issue is the hero of the story Nate Breyer and his behavior towards Samantha Dunsbury the heroine Of course the development of their relationship is the basis of this story so if they had no issues there wouldn t be much of a story to tell Still Nate being so often outright rude to Sam because her family background is similar [...]

  9. I really liked the heroine, Samantha The hero, Nat, not so much, but hey, no one s perfect and that s what makes this small, mountain town romance so sweet Really enjoyed the book.

  10. Instead of showing up for the society wedding of the century, Samantha made a run for it, driving clear across the country with no clue where she was going or what she would do when she got there When the sleepy little town of Nugget had her hitting the brakes, she found herself with no work experience and no marketable skills But she s smart and willing to work hard, and her knowledge of planning classy events seems like it may come in handy at recently renovated Nugget Inn If only the owner wa [...]

  13. 4.5 Stars I think the western small town of Nugget, California, is becoming one of my favorite places to get lost in Starting Over, the fourth book from Stacy Finz s Nugget series, is a fun read with charming characters and an engaging plot, which is surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Sierra Nevada mountain range After reading this book and one other in the series, Going Home, which was really good , I may have to experience the area for myself on my next vacation.This is the unique lo [...]

  14. Sam was too painful of a reminder of a woman Nate had once been engaged to Beautiful, wealthy, flighty, and inconsiderate of others and their feelings She abandoned her fiance at the altar, like Nate s did to him years ago The difference was Sam s no good would be husband was an unfaithful bastard who had no plans on keeping it in his pants even after they said I do , while Nate s ex decided marriage wasn t for her The reasons for abandonment are as different as light and dark, but Nate didn t k [...]

  15. I ve read one of Finz s Nugget stories all the way through and flipped through the other two None really caught my interest and I was ready to write off the series But I saw this one on NetGalley and was curious as to how Ms Finz was going to pair Nathan Nate Breyer I had liked him in the first book, a business like man who was enigmatically kind toward his sister and agreed to donate sperm to his best friend so that she and her partner could have a child Nathan is now dealing with the consequen [...]

  18. This is my first book by Stacy Finz and despite not having read the earlier books in this series, this could be read as a standalone.I really like Sam For a socialite, I liked that she is down to earth and courageous to get out of her familiar life and find a niche for herself even though it may have been prompted after seeing the true colors of her ex fianc Royce.As for Nate, I do like him enough even though he is such a jerk to Sam I didn t really like that he judged Sam for her actions just b [...]

  19. I received a copy of this novel for free through NetGalley in return for my honest opinion This is the first and only book I ve read out of the Nugget series I didn t realize it was a fourth book when I picked it up through NetGalley That being said, I didn t feel like I was lost or missing out on anything not having read the three previous novels You can easily pick this one up and start reading.I enjoyed this novel It was a quick, easy read In this book Nate is prejudice against Sam based on h [...]

  20. Starting Over by Stacy Finz is another entry to the Nugget, California series I must admit that this one is not my favorite of the series It is well written with developed characters However, I just did not connect with the two main characters My emotions were so tied up in Finding Hope, that I think I thought I would always fall for the characters in Nugget That just didn t happen this time.Nate has plenty of baggage of his own but instead of identifying with him, he came across as a the bottom [...]

  21. The book is okay Second Chances is by far, my favorite novel of the lot thus far I was actually looking forward to a combustible love hate relationship between Sam and Nate instead it was all fluff, no meat They both were highly one dimensional characters Sam is an heiress who wants to be called as something than a socialite Whereas Nate is a hard working businessman who has his heart in the right place Since there is no monetary divide between the two, there of sexual tension premise at play [...]

  22. Nate plays the part of confirmed bachelor with zeal, but underneath he s a softie Uncharacteristically, he has an immediate dislike for Samantha She reminds him of his ex from a decade ago Samantha is the runaway bride, and no one knows why she ran She s never had an actual job, but turns out to be an excellent planner Nate and Sam sizzle.Stacy Finz has created a wonderful town in Nugget, CA Her characters are well developed and realistic they could be your neighbors I really enjoy Nugget and th [...]

  23. I ll start out that I love this series, but Nate the male protagonist in this book, I just could not stand I really liked Samantha, but found Nate to be a total for most of this book I definitely could not get into them as a couple and was even somewhat repulsed by how he acted I had thought at first of just giving this 2 stars, but when the story did not involve Nate, I liked the book I d probably give this book 2 and a half stars if I could I look forward to future books I just hope they do no [...]

  24. Nugget is a town that you can t just drive right through You have to stay awhile or forever The town will steal your heart and heal your soul Starting Over is an excellent read Nate and Samantha are perfect for each other If only they could get beyond their past failed relationships They are both in need of a do over an opportunity to get it right Nugget is the perfect quirky and quaint little town to get it Excellent writing and well developed characters make this book and this series a sure be [...]

  25. A nice book, and I m always tempted to read the next one by the teaser chapters in the back of the book Nugget is a wonderful town where the people and the tourists care about each other It is a safe place, that keeps sadness out There are people in Nugget that have known heartache, rejection, and unhappiness They succeed in building new lives by working hard and practicing forgiveness They are not preachy, just human.

  26. This is the 4th book in the Nugget series I really enjoyed this book and the romance between Sam Nate The story revolved around Nate and his businesses and less about the town Sam was able to show Nate how great she is at event planning and surprised him by being able to multitask and provide a great experience for the clientsTE I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion review.

  27. An excellent read I enjoyed the characters of Sam and Nate, how their misconceptions coloured their relationship initially but as they work together their respect and love grows It was a lovely, well written story that reminded me of Susan Mallery s Fool s Fold series with its warm small town characters and setting, and I can t wait to read the next in the series ARC provided by NetGalley and the publisher in return for an honest review

  28. So so.This book was just so so for me I m sorry to say The storyline was all over the place and in places it really bogged down and lost my attention I didn t see much definitive character development for either Nate or Samantha and the emotion and sexual chemistry just wasn t there for me Knowing how talented this author is, I was rather disappointed.

  29. Loved It Starting Over is another great little romance in Nugget This book is about Samantha, the runaway bride and Nate, the co owner of the Lumber Baron This book definitely shows how sometimes we all need to start over again Stacy Finz has done a wonderful job with her fourth book in this terrific series I m already looking forward to the next book in the series.

  30. Questa serie mi piace molto, ma avevo difficolt a iniziare questo libro perch il protagonista maschile, gi visto nei precedenti volumi, non era nelle mie corde Devo per dire che piano piano il libro mi ha conquistato e soprattutto nella sua parte finale mi ha preso.Quattro stelle solo perch il secondo della serie mi rimasto nel cuore e questo un pochino sotto a quel livello.
