No strings. No mess. No complications. It was supposed to be just a month of fun. But two blue lines have them both considering a future that neither of them knew they wanted.

KATE BEARD Kindergarten teacher. Tequila connoisseur. Expert in finding Mr. WRONG. Ever since Kate discovered the man she thought she’d marry macking on his boyfriend, she has had nothing but bad luck in love. What she needs is a fresh start. When MURPHY and his damn LAW drop the perfect man right in front of her, it’s just her luck that he’s only there temporarily.

WYATT JACKSON Captain, Special Forces. Confirmed bachelor. In the running for uncle of the year. One month stateside to enjoy top-shelf tequila, lose himself in a gorgeous woman, and to try and forget the desert. What he needed was a reset. What he got, was a sassy southern woman hellbent on bringing him to his knees.

Neither thought they’d find forever between tragedy and tombstones.

    In the weird way that social media is creating, I would say the Karin Enders and I are becoming friends, even though we’ve never met in real life. We hang out in a bunch of the same online venues and share some interests. I find her funny and earnest. She’s a relatively new author, with only three books in her Beekman Hills series so far. I’ve enjoyed them, so of course I was excited to be offered an ARC of the fourth release, Tombstones, to review.

    The blurb will tell you straight up that this story uses the “unplanned pregnancy” trope, so I’m not spoiling anything there. As a general rule, I don’t pick my reading material by trope, but if pushed, I’d have to say that I’m neutral when it comes to the idea of procreating as a major plot point of the story – I don’t hate it, but I don’t seek it out. That said, I’d say that this one is well done.

    Kate and Jack are my favourite kind of leading characters. Well rounded, fully developed, satisfyingly mature with the regular amount of baggage. No dark secrets or horrific circumstances, just the usual flotsam and jetsom that accrues when you try to live your life. Circumstances bring them together for what they think is going to be a satisfying tryst, and this being a romance novel, that plan is quickly complicated.

    Readers who are familiar with McBride’s will have met Kate before and most of the previous characters make at least a cameo in this book. However, I think you could quite easily read this as a standalone without losing anything major. I chortled quite frequently as I read this and laughed so much during the epilogue that my giant dogs came to check on me on the bath and made a mess. I also cried at one point, which doesn’t happen often. I think this is a testament to the strength of the development, even in the secondary characters. 

    There is a scene or two that could use a bit of polishing but overall this was an engaging and satisfying read. I genuinely look forward to more stories from Karin, and maybe even the chance to meet her for real some day.

    From the very first book in this series, I’ve been obsessed with these characters. They are a family that I felt I became a part of from the first page of Troubles and because of that, this was a much more emotional read knowing it’s the end of the series.

    Kate and Jack’s story could definitely be read as a standalone but Beekman Hills is such an amazing place that I think people need to read them all.

    Every book in this series has been fantastic but there was just something a little extra in Tombstones that made it my favorite. Maybe it’s the fact that Kate is so strong, sweet, and sassy. Maybe it’s that Jack is swoon personified. I couldn’t put this book down but I never wanted it to end. Theirs was the perfect end to this series but I’m going to keep hoping this isn’t my last visit to Beekman Hills.
