4 out of 5 Stars
Aimee Smith found a home and friends in Whispering Cove. During the Fall Festival she found no-strings fun in the arms of her favorite country singer. Then her fling left town—and she discovered how much of himself he left behind.

Josh Bryan loved life on the road—until one Whispering Cove waitress ruined it. Not that he’s complaining. Before her, there were willing women at every stop, but none stayed in his mind, under his skin, or left him wanting a second taste. Not like her.

Almost fourteen months later, with Christmas festivities in full swing, Aimee’s days at the bar are long and her nights walking the floor are longer. Yet she’s never been happier, at least until Josh walks into the bar in a swirl of snow.

The truth could send him running, have him accusing her of setting a trap…or be her one chance to prove she wants him for more than just his money and fame. That is, if he’s willing to take a chance there’s something between them deeper than passion.

Product Warnings
This title contains a waitressing mother, a serenading celebrity, snow-melting passion and a secret baby.
  Serenades by Nikki Duncan is a lovely and heart-warming romance, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Serenades might be book #9 in the Whispering Cove series, but don't let that stop you from reading it if you haven't read any of the previous books, because I hadn't read any of the previous books and it didn't take any of the enjoyment out of this super-sweet romance.
  Serenades is about single mom Aimee and her past fling Josh reuniting after fourteen months apart. Josh returns to Whispering Cove only to find that Aimee has been left raising their baby on her own when he left town after playing at the Fall Festival and she can't contact him. I really enjoyed their romance, and although the secret baby thing has been done plenty of times before, this story didn't make it feel like all of the others that I've read.
  Aimee is a strong and independent woman who does her best despite her situation, and she doesn't really hold anything against Josh for not responding when she tried to contact him because they'd agreed to a casual fling beforehand. Instead of wallowing in pity, Aimee has decided that she is going love their daughter enough for the both of them. I loved her positive attitude and her absolute devotion to her baby and what was best for her.
  Josh is used to being in the limelight and having everyone constantly wanting something from him, but his short time with Aimee has lingered in his mind during their whole time apart. So when a gig takes him back to the lovely town of Whispering Cove he decides he wants to figure out why he can't seem to forget her. 
 Their story was very sweet and gave me all the warm and fuzzy feelings at the end that I associate with a real romance story. The story being set around the holidays was just an extra plus for me since I love reading them this time of year to get me in the holiday mood. Bottom line is, if you're looking for a heart-warming romance with a holiday theme, you should definitely check it out. It was a quick read but it didn't feel rushed at all. So whether you're a fan of the series or just want to check it out, you should definitely give it a try.
