R E V I E W ➠ Playing with Words by Kelly Elliott

(Boggy Creek Valley #2)


Hudson Higgins had fond memories of Boggy Creek from his childhood. So what better place to escape New York City for a few weeks to finish up a book that was nearing deadline than the small town in New Hampshire his parents visited nearly every summer.
What he couldn’t have known was how his life would be turned upside down when he walked into Greer Larson’s bookstore his first day in town.
Greer Larson lived a quiet life in her hometown of Boggy Creek. She had worked nearly her whole adult life to make her dreams of owning her bookstore come true—and now, Turning Pages was her everything. She lived, eat, and breathed the success of owning her own business.
That is, until a stranger came to town and showed Greer that there was more to life than simply working. A friendship between Greer and Hudson quickly formed over their love of books and the outdoors.
When Greer’s bookstore is threatened, Hudson soon realizes he hasn’t simply fallen for the charm of Boggy Creek and Greer, he’d fallen in love…with both the town, and the woman who stole his heart from the moment she first smiled at him.
Playing with Words is book two in the Boggy Creek Valley series and is a stand alone novel.

RELEASE DATE: August 3, 2021

Not my first read by the author, I am a HUGE fan of hers and have been reading her books for years. I also have read book #1 in this series. I kind of knew what was coming and it did not disappoint!!

Greer and Hudson share a combined love for books! Nothing better than a writer and a book store owner, right?! Well, Greer is the hard-working, quirky, lovable, sweet and strong heroine. Hudson is a SWOON WORTHY hero, patient, sweet, smart & dangerously attractive. While these two spring a beautiful friendship of same likes, deep down both of them go beyond that line very fast and they both don’t even realize it. Love does that for you, but trouble is around the corner and it test not only their relationship but also Greers future.

“Knowing I was the one who made her light up made me want to do it every day for as long as I could.”


What I really loved about these two is the passion, not only for books but life, Greer in a quieter way and Hudson full of it just bursting on the outside. He shows her that there is more to life than work, and she shows him what true love really is. I was griped from page one and really loved their HEA! Can’t wait for more in the series! p.s. who turned up the STEAMY level on this?! p.s.s. thank you! 😉
