    1. This quiet romance starts nicely, gets bogged down and then flattens out from the middle to the end. I would expect far better of such an experienced author and I can only think that nobody was editing this work. While this is sixth in a series, it is written as a standalone with two newly introduced protagonists. A Massachusetts small town is the location.The female half is a shy illustrator of children's books who has had a hit with a series under a pseudonym. For no reason except liking a qui [...]


    2. You know when you start a book and it’s just terrible? And you try to decide whether it’s a Did Not Finish, or whether you’ll stick it out? I’m experiencing that with this book right now. First, though we rarely write reviews where we don’t recommend a book, I really can’t recommend this book UNLESS you really want a nice, New England-y story and you don’t care about the writing so much. From the beginning Neggers pushes anxiety, worry and fear. I had no idea why everyone was runni [...]


    3. I have loved this series, but this one was a fail for me. I didn't understand the big deal about the secret Kylie kept. The couple had zero chemistry and the romance was WAY too fast. The book dragged and It took forever for me to finish it, which is never the case with this author. The two stars is because I liked catching up with older characters from previous books.



    4. I won this book in a giveaway. My opinion is just thatmine, and completely unbiased.This was my first Carla Neggers novel and it doesn't make me feel like a I want to try another one anytime soon. While the setting is quaint and charming, the plot which revolves a secret is petty and forced at best. I admit that romance novels are not my cup of tea, but a well-written one I can usually get into. This just felt like a waste of my time.


    5. I thought the story was very confusing. It just seemed to drag along. Usually her books are very good but if u haven't read this yet than save yourself some money.


    6. This is probably the 4th of her books that I've read, and I had forgotten about the earlier two. Neggers has the bones of a really good story, but for some reason she takes a little secret her main character wants to keep and blows it all out of proportion. Keeping the secret becomes the focus of the heroine and finding out what she is hiding becomes the focus of the romantic interest. The one with the secret acts like having it revealed will be the end of the world as we know it when all it gen [...]


    7. This book was a disappointment for me. I liked Kylie, but I thought it was ridiculous she was so worried about people finding out about her secret. And then we have Daphne, the drama queen. She enjoys playing the part and picking on those around here. I think the best part of this book was the Colton brothers. I hope Ms. Neggers takes this series back to the beginning. I loved having the treasure hunts/mysteries and people finding love along the way.


    8. I am a huge Carla Neggars fan but this book was a big disappointment to me. This whole story was a tempest in a teapot. Every bit of the story line produced a big WHY which were never answered. This was a miss for me. I even went back and reread Echo Lake while in the middle of this book thinking I missed something which turned out not the case. Yawn.


    9. 2-Boring story about a boring woman who thinks she has this HUGE secret that she writes children's stories under a psedonym and oh no what if the private investigator who happens to be flowing into town for a non-issue discovers her secret?!?Throughout the story I'm yelling "NOBODY CARES!"So why did I finish the book?Done with this author.


    10. I have read all of Carla Neggers books and I was greatly disappointed. I love recurring characters and series but this one did not have any of her usual suspense.




    11. This book reminded me how much I love the Swift River Valley series. I would call this a contemporary romance rather than a romantic suspense, and yet Neggers manages to instill a tension and intensity into these seemingly small-town lighthearted stories. Even though there are no dead bodies and no one is fearing for his or her life, there are always secrets and uncertainties--the same secrets and doubts that we all live with--and Neggers uses these to keep her readers on edge. Even though I ass [...]


    12. It’s sweet and cute with a good dose of down-home humor. I liked Kylie and Russ as individual characters and I enjoyed watching their budding romance. It felt a little fast, but not really any faster than a lot of the other pairings in the series. I also loved seeing what the couples from the earlier books were up to. I thought Kylie’s big secret was a little overplayed, though. In the grand scheme of things, it didn’t actually matter to anyone except her.


    13. Kylie and RussThis is another great book in the series. Kylie is an illustrator just finished with in-depth work. Russ is a private investigator, in town checking for issues with a famous designer coming g to town.


    14. Another fairy tale version of Western Massachusetts small town living full of gorgeous people who fall in love quickly and without issues and forever. The reader is absolutely horrible. But she is better than a sleeping pill. I haven't slept so easily or so long without a sleeping pill in years.


    15. An OK read. The main character Kylie seemed a little weak. I couldn't figure out why it was such a bid deal hiding that she illustrated a popular childrens book series. Pace seemed slow.




    16. A nice addition to the series. I liked both MC's personalities and the town of Knights Bridge is always fun to visit!


    17. I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an hones review. As always, this has no bearing on my opinion of this story.This was my first Carla Neggers read. I have been hearing about her from people who I follow and respect. So, when I jumped at the chance to read an advanced copy of it. This review will be pretty short. I had to power through this book. I really hoped it would ramp up. That some of the hints for potential excitement might bear fruit and that ther [...]


    18. I like the town and people but man it was so incredibly boring! The conflict the author created was really a non conflict. I wouldn't have finished it if I didn't have an audiobook format.


    19. I always love a visit to Knights Bridge but I do have to say that this one wasn't my favorite. My primary problem was that secret that Kylie was keeping just didn't seem that big of a deal. I can get why she didn't want to advertise who she was but I had a hard time understanding her level of worry about being discovered. I kept expecting there to be a crazed stalker or something in her past but there wasn't. I was also surprised with how much of an impact some rumors about faulty construction o [...]


    20. The Spring at Moss Hill is another outstanding Swift River Valley novel by Carla Neggers. She brings this valley to life with her descriptions of the area and the well-developed characters. The plot is somewhat predictable but still interesting enough to keep you wanting to read. Kylie Shaw came to Knights Bridge to finish her illustrations when she had some strict deadlines. She stayed in a friend’s cottage until her friend decided to put it up for sale. Then she moved into the newly built co [...]


    21. It took me nearly half the book to really dive into the story, perhaps because it is a quiet story, having taken its cue from the little spring where Kylie finds peace. In this continuing saga of the Swift River Valley series, Kylie Shaw is a children's book illustrator and author, though the latter label is hidden behind the pseudonym she hasn't shared with the people of Moss Hill. When Russ Colton, a PI, arrives because his client, Daphne Stewart, is soon to arrive and rumors suggest trouble w [...]


    22. I look forward to each new romance novel in Carla Neggers’s Swift River Valley seriesE SPRING AT MOSS HILL is another delight to read, enjoy and savor. The novel takes place in April and coincidentally I happen to have read this book in April. T.S. Eliot may have characterized April as the cruelest month, but not so in this charming romance.Kylie Shaw came to Knights Bridge, Massachusetts to find a quiet, rural place to work on her children’s books. She has is reclusive and guards her privac [...]

    24. I read this because it was the selection for the book club I attend. I had heard of the author, but had never read any of her books before. I honestly don't know what this book was trying to be. The romance felt contrived and happened WAY too fast to be believable. The 'mystery' aspect of it never really got off the ground and by the time I realized what the mystery was supposed to be, it was over and not threatening at all. I realize that this was the 6th book in a series, & it seems like t [...]


    25. Russ Colton is in Knight's Bridge because Daphne Stewart has an uneasy feeling about the master workshop she's going to be doing there. We met Daphne in previous books (she lived in Knight's Bridge for two years, but as the last surviving family member of the sawmill owners, she has ties to the town. She also had 40 years as a fabulous costume designer in Hollywood, even won Oscars) but Russ is brand new to KB, no ties. He's been assigned to an apartment across from reclusive children's book ill [...]
