Let It Show by Tawna Fenske
Juniper Ridge # 2
Steam Level: It’s Getting Warmer
Yeah, I agreed to live at an old cult compound and let cameras tail me around, but a plotline about a grumpy single dad finding love? Big nope. All I want is a brewery to run and a fresh start with my daughter. Just toss me the keys, keep the psych sessions short, and remind me again why I can’t fall for Dr. Mari Judson.
At least I’m not alone. She’s as thirsty as I am for what’s brewing between us, but Mari runs scared when we get close. Something’s stopping her, and a woman with secrets is a recipe for heartache. Trust me, I know.
Blame her sexy brain, her quirky parrot, or the way my kid adores her, but I can’t quit chasing Mari. It’s bound to blow up like a can of Kolsch tossed down the stairs, so why can’t we stay apart?
And why do I think the good doc is hiding something huge?Goodreads

Let It Show is the second book in the Juniper Ridge Series. I really enjoy this series’s premise, a carefully crafted town that is the setting of a physiological experiment and reality show.
From pretty much the beginning, you know what the conflict is going to be. The author doesn’t even try to hide it, which I appreciated. This is one of the books that the characters are more important than the actual plot. I loved getting to know Mari and seeing her Griffin fall in love. Their love story was very believable, and while the single dad trope is not generally a favorite of mine, I enjoyed it here. I also loved the small bits of humor throughout this book. It was a relatively light read that certainly made me chuckle a couple of times as I listened.
Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon did a great job! I always love Erin Mallon, and Jason Clarke has a great voice; it’s hard not to enjoy listening to him read anything. I thought both of their voices fit the characters well, and I just really enjoyed their performances.
I am really enjoying this series and am very much looking forward to the next book!
