A Reader's Opinion: FRESH BREWED by Pamela Ford


What a charming and refreshing story!

Pamela Ford’s Fresh Brewed, is the second fun adventure of three girlfriends, Allie, Megan and Breanna of The Continental Breakfast Club series. I had so much fun reading this 2nd installment! This romantic comedy is fun to read, light, sweet and charming. It's perfect for the beach or on vacation!

The Continental Breakfast Club series tells the story of three best friends who concocted a plan to help them find the men of their dreams. Their plan is to try and meet men at continental breakfast clubs where anything can happen! I really enjoyed Allie's story in Over Easy, and this time it's Breanna's turn to find her future husband. It all started when they are leaving for a vacation and her plan suddenly changes. All three girls meet a new friend named Kristin, who has two gorgeous brothers! In order to stay in a beautiful oceanfront house, she has to pretend to be the girlfriend of one of Kristin's brother, Ethan. Everything is working according to plan until Ethan really shows up unexpectedly! What will happen next?

Watch next for Megan's turn to search for “the perfect husband”!

Breanna Mitchell is on her way to a relaxing vacation at the ocean. Maybe she'll even have a beachside fling to help her get over a recent breakup. But when a tropical storm makes her destination hotel uninhabitable, a chance encounter at continental breakfast delivers a fabulous option—with a catch. She and her friends can stay at a privately-owned, three-story oceanfront home—if she pretends to be the girlfriend of the owner's heartbreaker grandson, Ethan. Since he won't even be there, how hard could it be? Everything is going swimmingly until Bree drinks too much wine and regales the family with romantic tales about her relationship with Ethan. His adorable brother Adam gets suspicious. His marriage-minded grandma gets engagement fever. The beautiful woman next door gets teary-eyed. And then, Ethan unexpectedly arrives. Suddenly Bree is about to get everything she's ever wished for—but is it what she really wants?
