Addie Collins runs Quinn Valley Collectibles, the souvenir shop in town, and loves coming up with unique merchandise to highlight the different goods and services in the area. She has always been interested in advertising, and this has given her a way to bring all her talents together into one spot, and she’s living her best life. 

Jason Miller has his dream job too – he travels the country with a truck and trailer, writing magazine articles about the points of interest he sees along the way. He’s grown a little cynical, though, and his articles lack some of the human touches that would really make him shine. 

When Addie, his ex-girlfriend, writes a letter to the editor about his latest feature, he’s assigned to visit Quinn Valley and write a new feature about what makes that area special. As it turns out, the most special thing there is Addie, but it just might be too late for them to mend the broken fences and find the pieces of themselves they lost so long ago.

Addie’s Adventurer is the 9th title in the multi-author series Quinn Valley Ranch.  A list of titles in this series and links to reviews done here at Keeper Bookshelf can be found by visiting our Quinn Valley Ranch page.

Title:  Addie’s Adventurer
Series:  Quinn Valley Ranch #9
Author:  Amelia C. Adams
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Published:  January 27, 2019
My Rating:  4 stars

ADDIE’S ADVENTURER is a tender romance of two people who once upon a time were in love until their separate dreams could not mesh together and fear, mistrust, and anger pulled them apart.  Each has moved on to create those dreams in other ways but the memories linger on.  Now, because of one action on Addie’s part, they are brought together in the same small town.  It’s up to them now to make the changes in attitude that is needed to get back what they once lost – each other.  It’s not going to be easy, but when the love is real it’s worth the effort.

Addie and Jason both made mistakes in their past.  There were many times in this story that I didn’t like Jason much.  He is so closed off to anything but his own opinion and his fears.  Addie was not without her own faults, but it was Jason I had the most trouble with during this story.  It was wonderful to see some old friends, and their bunny with messages from the fairies once again.  I love the crossovers that we so often get in this spin-off series.  ADDIE’S ADVENTURER takes a hard look at the past, the mistakes made back then, and the possibilities of the future.  I enjoy anything by Amelia C. Adams and this story was fun and heartbreaking at the same time.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
