Blog Tour: Review of A Spark of Romance by Jamie K. Schmidt

Author:  Jamie K. Schmidt

Publisher: Tule Publishing 
Publication Date: June 30, 2020

Is she out of reach?
Fire Chief and former Army sergeant Kayleigh Baker is determined to save Mulberry’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She doesn’t want to disappoint the kids and the fireworks are a bittersweet memory of her mom’s last summer. As the town prepares for the summer parade and picnic, Kayleigh works to convince her former high school crush — now the straight-laced police chief — to help her cause.
Does he stack up?
Police Chief Liam MacAvoy doesn’t like the chaos the fireworks cause for his department and can’t hide his relief when they’re cancelled. But now he’s got the woman he’s been in love with for as long as he can remember asking for his help. How can he say no? What he’d really like is to show her that fireworks and town traditions are not the only things worth fighting for.
Can the boy next door and the town hero find the courage to finally seize their chance at love?

My thoughts:

A Spark of Romance is a sweet, friends to lovers romance.  Kayleigh and Liam have been friends since kindergarten.  Each has had a crush on the other for years, but have never said anything for fear of jeopardizing their relationship.  It was cute how their attempts at dates kept being sabotaged.   For the most part, I did enjoy the story.  It's definitely a really slow burn. And I do mean slow.  I think that was my only issue with the book. It took forever for the couple to get together and then it kind of just ended.  I would have liked an epilogue.    If you are looking for a clean sweet small town romance, give this one a shot.
