Spring has come to Eternity Springs in the newest installment in this New York Times bestselling series by Emily March.

When Josh Tarkington gets stuck on a gondola with the lovely Caitlin Timberlake, he thinks his consistently bad luck might have changed.

After their blossoming romance is interrupted, Caitlin realizes that her encounter with Josh was a sign that she needed to make a major life change. So she packs up her things and moves to Eternity Springs, opens a day care, and sets her cap for the town’s mechanic—Josh.

But Josh is hiding a well of secrets that would ruin him, and his relationship with everyone in Eternity Springs—especially Caitlin. When tragedy strikes, Josh and Caitlin find themselves, and their relationship, tested beyond imagining. Will they be able to find their way back to each other?

Liza's Review:

The First Kiss of Spring is another winner in the Eternity Springs series for books. I have enjoyed each of the books I’ve read in the Eternity Springs series to date. I know I am guaranteed a sweet and emotional romance and The First Kiss of Spring have me what I was looking for.

I adored both Caitlin and Josh from the moment we met them both. I loved how they just clicked from their very first meeting. They had really great chemistry and yet they maintained a sweetness to their relationship as well.

I loved how Caitlin knew what she wanted to do and moved home to make her dreams come true, even when her parents didn’t see eye to eye with her decision.  I didn't love they questioned Caitlin's decision because her dream wasn't their dream. I understood their concern for Caitlin changing careers, but wanted them to support her decision faster. I also hated to see her parents were keeping secrets about her dad's health from Caitlin and her brothers, but understood their need to know what was going on before sharing the news.

I was glad to see Caitlin had Josh in her corner along with so many friends in Eternity Springs. I absolutely adored seeing Caitlin and Josh grow closer and closer the more time they spent together and it kind of broke my heart when Josh started pushing Caitlin away rather than being honest about his issues. I got he was embarrassed about what he was going through, but I hated seeing him push Caitlin away rather than let her know what was really going on with him. I actually fell a bit more for him once he was honest about everything he was struggling with than when he seemed perfect.

The First Kiss of Spring was a sweet and emotion filled romance that gave me all the feels. Emily March has become a go-to author for me since I discovered this series and I look forward to each new book she writes. I highly recommend her books to readers who love emotion filled romances.
