Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows?
Katy Regnery's Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings!
Jacqueline “Jax” Rousseau is vivacious, rich, smart and beautiful…but that doesn’t mean she’s lucky in love: she’s dated doctors, lawyers, actors and politicians who’ve all managed to end up disappointing her. In fact, she’s on a self-imposed hiatus from love when she has an unpleasant run-in with her neighbor’s gorgeous new landscaper, Gardener Thibodeaux. Jax is not accustomed to gruff, ill-mannered men that can’t be charmed, but something about Gard intrigues her, and if she can find her way through the armor that surrounds his heart, she also might find a love that won’t let her down.

Jonquils for Jax
Katy Regnery

Regnery’s contemporary romance series is one of those ‘go-to’ books for me. I know that I will get some swoony romance, well written characters, and a solid storyline that hooks me in! Jonquils for Jax delivers!

Jax is a very strange character for me. She is very wealthy, and in her first meeting with Gardner, our hero, she is a bit brattish and condescending. However, as you get to know her in the story, you do see more of her personality and her behavior makes more sense. I still think she is a bit judgmental and elitist. Gardner is a wonderful character be he has a disability! As a former police officer, he had an incident in the line of duty that has effected his eyesight. Forced into early retirement, he takes a position as a gardner at the estate next door to Jax’s family. I adore characters with struggles and imperfections because they are simply fascinating. Learning how Gardner is dealing with his disability, his life upheaval, and his future makes for a very well written, dynamic character. He struggles with accepting the differences between his previous dreams and his future dreams. He does sell himself short at times, and that made him even more real as a character. And he does a super romantic big move at the end!

If you want a well written contemporary romance with dynamic characters who have flaws to spare, Jonquils for Jax is a perfect pick!

About Katy Regnery

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
