Harmony accidentally hits the back of Hudson's police SUV because Romeo, the dog she just rescued, is scared of thuderstorms and jumped into her lap. Problem is, not everyone sees Harmony as rescuing Romeo. She may have possibly did a little breaking and entering at an animal shelter to get Romeo. No one is watching him while his owner is away! Hudson has a soft spot for Harmony. He was able to convince the owner of the animal shelter to not press charges against her. Her condition is community service for 5 weeks. Supervised community service by Hudson, that is. Now this is where the story really gets started! Without giving too much away, Hudson and Harmony pretty much have to spend all their time together trying to renovate this property. I have been anticipating Hudson and Harmony's story since "Teasing Destiny," and it definitely didn't disappoint! There was so much tension and chemistry between the two of them! When they finally gave in, they were HOT! And of course, a story by this sister duo of Melanie and Shawna wouldn't be the same without seeing all the other characters we've grown to love in this series! It just makes the story more fun! Melanie and Shawna wrote another winner! Looking forward to reading Colton's story next

    Discovery Harmony is the 3rd Book in the Wishing Well, Texas Series. This is the type series that each book gets better. Though I do think that this also could be a stand alone. Hudson is the strong silent type. My favorite type...you just know that there is depth there. I thought in the first couple books that there might be some feeling there for Harmony. I'm so glad I was right. Harmony doesn't date guys from her hometown. Mostly in part because of all her brothers.

Mostly in part because of all her brothers. I think she was also trying to run from her feelings for Hudson because she didn't think the two of them having a relationship was reality. They love each other and went they get together is beyond sizzling. Hudson doesn't want to commit to Harmony because he thinks he'll hold her back on her dreams and it's up to Harmony to try to convince him that her dream is to have a future that includes him. It was also very nice to catch up with all the characters from books 1 and 2. I can't say enough good things about this book, this series. Absolute MUST read!

    Hudson Reed All around great guy and complete alpha male. Total blind spot for the one woman that stole his heart ages ago. Convinced that they do not have a future together since he wants to stay in Wishing Well had have a family and she wants to travel. Harmony Briggs goes all wild and hot for only one man and cant seem to get his attention (or so it seams) for the life of her. Whats a girl to do? I love how this couple are so crazy for each other.

    Harmony Briggs used to date a doctor named Tim who was away working with Doctors Without Borders and had a friend watching his dog, Romeo. Romeo is afraid of storms and was home alone making all kinds of noises. The neighbors called and complained and they put Romeo in doggy jail! Harmony found out and tried to get him out, but Cruella (Blanche at the shelter) would not let Harmony take Romeo. Once the shelter closed, Harmony broke in and got Romeo out. She is on her way home when it thunders an Harmony Briggs used to date a doctor named Tim who was away working with Doctors Without Borders and had a friend watching his dog, Romeo. Romeo is afraid of storms and was home alone making all kinds of noises. The neighbors called and complained and they put Romeo in doggy jail! Harmony found out and tried to get him out, but Cruella (Blanche at the shelter) would not let Harmony take Romeo. Once the shelter closed, Harmony broke in and got Romeo out. She is on her way home when it thunders and Romeo (80 pounds) jumps in the driver’s seat with her and Harmony loses control and bumps into a police care. The office gets out and comes over to her and it is Hudson Reed who she has had a crush on forever, but won’t give her the time of day. Just as he is talking to Harmony, he gets a call about someone breaking out Romeo and he is looking right at her. Hudson talks to Blanche at the shelter and instead of arresting Harmony, she has to do 200 hours of community service. Hudson talks to the local judge and her service is helping him with a farm he is fixing up for something special. Hudson has had a thing for Harmony for quite awhile, but she told him once that she couldn’t wait to get out of their small town and travel. Hudson wants a woman who wants his children and to settle down in their small town. So Hudson has not been very nice to Harmony to try to keep his distance from her. You need to read the book to see what happens. I love this series and this book is just as great as the rest. The three best friends, and now sisters or almost as Destiny is married to Harmony’s brother and Cara is engaged to another. Destiny is about to have a baby which everyone is excited about. I loved Harmony as she says what she thinks and doesn’t take crap from anyone. The only person that she is not as bold with is Hudson as she can’t understand why he doesn’t like her. Hudson wants Harmony, but he doesn’t want to make her stay in the small town and then hate him down the road. It all makes for some funny and loving adventures. I encourage you to get the book. I was given a copy for an honest review.

Harmony is the only girl and the youngest of the nine Biggs children. With eight big brothers always watching over her, Harmony usually looks outside of Wishing Well for love.

He believes in r Discovering Harmony by Melanie Shawn is book 3 of their Wishing Well Texas series. This story stars Harmony Biggs and Hudson Reed. Harmony is the only girl and the youngest of the nine Biggs children. With eight big brothers always watching over her, Harmony usually looks outside of Wishing Well for love. She has crushed on Hudson since high school. She always thought she knew what she wanted until she spent time with Hudson. Hudson is now a cop on the Wishing Well police force. He believes in reality and playing by the rules. He has loved Harmony from afar, believing she needs to leave Wishing Well to fulfill her dreams. This was a beautiful love story that had me cheering for these two. I was wondering how Harmony would convince Hudson that her priorities and dreams changed. I was wondering if Hudson would believe that Harmony’s dreams have changed and that they now included him. While reading this story I fell in love with Hudson and especially the way he cared for and treated Harmony with respect, caring, admiration and love. I enjoyed Discovering Harmony and was pleased with the way Melanie Shawn found a way for Harmony and Hudson to find their true love and happy ever after. The characters were well written and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I also enjoyed the way the authors added humor to many of the scenes, which had me laughing out loud. Although this book is part of a series, it is also be read as a stand-alone. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Wishing Well series. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A fun summer read, filled with sizzling scenes, tempers flaring, superheroes, and lifelong friends. I love the way Melanie Shawn created the small towns their romances are set, I am keen to live in any of the places, to mingle with the people, and be part of the scene.

I love the way Melanie Shawn created the small towns their romances are set, I am keen to live in any of the places, to mingle with the people, and be part of the scene. As you read the story, you feel like you know them like they are your friends, you feel their sorrow, fear, and joy, and as the series unfold, you get the feeling like you have known them all your life like you were there witnessing it all happen. Harmony and Hudson take the heat level to another, higher, atmosphere. Both being alpha type personalities, used to be in charge and in command, the battle of minds is to be expected, as the sexy scenes are smoldering hot. There's more to the relationship than just the physical yearn they have for each other. Harmony and Hudson have known each other all their lives, they grew up in the same small circles in the small town, and over the time Hudson is convinced that he could not make Harmony happy, that she needs to be free to explore the world, free to be able to be the person she was meant to be. Harmony has her work cut out for herself to convince Hudson, that she has changed. But will he believe her, before it is too late, before too many hurtful things have been said? An array of emotions, from joy, pleasure, and elation, to fear, hurt, and doubt, from laughing out loud to few tears, I went through it all while reading this very entertaining tale of lifelong wishes come through ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

    This book gave me so much life and feels! I can't even begin to put what I feel in words. I hope I do this review justice because frankly I'm really at lost for words this book. THIS BOOK WAS JUST PERFECTION!! Just when you think Melanie Shawn can't possibly blow your mind, heart and soul away with another book.

Let me start by saying that she had me by quoting Steel Magnolia, referencing my girl Julia Roberts and My Best Friend Wedding. (Just shut up! Shut Up! You had me at Hello! Melanie Shawn) Come on this book had so much sexual tension, romance and the most stubbornest characters she has ever created. I have read plenty of romance books were the main characters don't want to show their emotions and it's a struggle for them to show it, yadda yadda yadda. Which don't get me wrong, I all for that kind of tension and love. But just when you think yeah I've read that. WRONG! The way she wrote this story line and characters it had this refreshing approach and new shade of pink/romance. I immediately fell in love with this book. I took my sweet time savoring every word, every scene and replaying it in my mind. I mean, come on! I'm in love with Hudson but I'm literally in love with Hudson and Harmony. Talk about relationship goals. If you have to read just one book of Melanie Shawn, this is the book to read. HANDS DOWN MY ALL TIME FAVORITE!! But seriously why would you just read one book of hers?! That's just dumb and criminal.

    Steamy, funny, heartwarming! For her whole life Harmony felt like she was made for bigger things than the small town she grew up in could offer her.

When things in Harmony’s life get shook up she re-evaluates what she really wants out of life which is starting to be more in line with what Hudson has always wanted the only question is can she convince Hudson she really had changed her mind. This book was a-maz-ing! I really love this small town series. It is truly one of the best small town series I have read in a long time. I read it in a matter of hours because I couldn’t put it down. Harmony is funny, spunky, stubborn, and has the biggest heart. Hudson is the definition of quite strength and alpha. When Harmony and Hudson come together under unusual circumstances watching them circle each other while trying to figure the other one out is pure enjoyment. If you are like me you will be flipping the pages just as fast as you can because you can’t wait until these two find their HEA. To say I’m looking forward to additional stories in this series would be an understatement. You will want to read this book and the entire series trust me!

    *ARC received in exchange for an honest review* Again the first word that comes to mind when I think of this book is WOW !! The books in the Wishing Well Texa’s series just keep getting better and better. Hudson and Harmony’s chemistry is just explosive. The things that they will each do to either get back at the other or to get the other one naked is just beyond amazing.

The lengths that Hudson will go to protect and to help Harmony will make you swoon. The things that Harmony will do and say to Hudson will have you laughing out loud. Melanie Shawn does such an amazing job of making you feel like a part of this town and the families that live there. I cannot wait for the next installment in this series. As soon as I finished this book I already missed the people of this town. I would highly recommend that you pick up this book and give it a try. If you have not read the first two books in this series I would highly recommend them too. As I have read each book, the new leading man of the book has become my new favorite book boyfriend. So now Hudson is my new book boyfriend but I have a feeling that Colton just might be replacing him !! This book is 5 stars for sure.

Harmony is a quick witted (around everyone except Hud) beautiful woman who is interested in Hud but isn't about to show it. They both think the other is not interested in the other.

Until Harmony commits a crime trying to rescue a dog & Hud has to oversee her community service. Will the close proximity cause them to break down & deal with these feelings? What intensity! The descriptive style of the authors had me picturing each scene. And what pictures their words conjured up! "He folded his arms in front of his chest and the motion caused his bulging biceps to pull the material of his uniform taut." Swoon!!! The characters were very well developed & the reader was further entertained with glimpses of how the characters in the earlier books were doing in their lives. The plot was really entertaining & had components that weren't expected. I'm not always a fan of the dual point of views but I really feel that it adds something to the story to know how each character feels. The chemistry between them is so hot & intense it literally jumps off the page at you! A book you don't want to miss! Grab a copy & make sure you are comfy before you start since you won't be putting it down until you finish it!!

    When you have a book where the connection and chemistry is so strong between the two main characters, you know it's going to be a great one and that is what Melanie Shawn has produced with Hudson Reed and Harmony Briggs in Discovering Harmony! Harmony has loved Hudson for as long as she can remember, but the man has never paid her any mind, at least in a romantic sense; he's always seemed just out of her reach. Harmony ends up rear-ending the back of Hud's police SUV, after rescuing Romeo the dog When you have a book where the connection and chemistry is so strong between the two main characters, you know it's going to be a great one and that is what Melanie Shawn has produced with Hudson Reed and Harmony Briggs in Discovering Harmony! Harmony has loved Hudson for as long as she can remember, but the man has never paid her any mind, at least in a romantic sense; he's always seemed just out of her reach. Harmony ends up rear-ending the back of Hud's police SUV, after rescuing Romeo the dog, and it lands her in hot water. When she's accused of breaking and entering at the animal shelter where Romeo's being held after being found left home alone after several days, Hud shows that he has a soft spot for Harmony by arranging for her to do her community service under his watchful eye. As the two are forced to work together on a renovation project that Hudson is heading, the sparks fly and the chemistry between the two is undeniable. When they finally give in to the attraction, it's like fireworks on the Fourth of July - it's hot, fiery and explosive. I absolutely love Wishing Well, Texas and all of its residents! This is my favorite story in this series so far and I was excited to learn we have more to look forward to from this amazing town. Kudos to Melanie Shawn for penning another winner! **ARC provided by the author for an honest review**

Speaking of characters, Harmony and Hudson are a really fun couple to follow, they are so different but somehow the saying "opposites attract", really does fit. I love the verbal sparring they do and their chemistry is off the charts sizzling! But the thing I love the most about Melanie's books are the story lines, these books are about much more than sex and she proves it with every book she turns out. The stories are fully-developed and well thought out and keep me coming back for more because I want to know how my favorite characters are doing. There is always plenty of character updates thrown into the story to keep me happy. All of Melanie's books have the perfect blend of romance, sex and plot! This book is another awesome read and perfect for a quick red-hot read!

    What can I say? This book was perfect. I can't imagine there being any way for it to be more perfect. I was hooked from the bumper to bumper incident!

She is independent, passionate, selfless, and fiercely protective of those she loves. I mean how many of us would break into an animal shelter (I would)? She also very stubborn and determined, which helps her get what she wants. Hud is day dream material. He's a cop, he is passionate about things that matter to him, especially under privileged kids. He is also very stubborn, but the things he does are to make others happy...or so he thinks. Hud and Harmony have some serious chemistry. I was sizzling from their chemistry! And OMG, the barn scenes? Let me just say turn a fan on before reading! One of my favorite characters in this book was Hud's mom. She is as stubborn as Hud, and doesn't take "I don't want to talk about it" for an answer!

She feels a bit left behind by all the talk of weddings and babies and is anxious to get out of her sexual dry spell. Hudson is the town cop and is as “alpha” as they come. He has harbored a crush on Harmony for years but has not acted on it as he wants to settle down, have a family, etc etc. He thinks Harmony wants anything but that! Harmony has worshipped Hudson from afar for years as well and when she is sentenced to community service for rescuing (aka dog-napping) a dog from the local shelter, they are forced to work together and face their feelings for each other. Mix their obvious attraction for each other with fried chicken, hay bales, cowboy boots and a run-down barn and you have the all the fixin’s for a small town romance! I am looking forward to my next visit to Wishing Well. Disclaimer: I was gifted an advance copy in exchange for my honest review.

    This book was so fun and fiery that I was thankful it was the weekend when I sat down to read it so that I wouldn’t have to put it down. Wishing Well may have just surpassed Hope Falls as my favorite Melanie Shawn series. The chemistry brewing between Hudson and Harmony is so strong it emanates from the pages. I have loved all of the characters in Wishing Well and am so glad that there are many more Briggs siblings left to have stories written about. Hudson has avoided making a move on Harmony, This book was so fun and fiery that I was thankful it was the weekend when I sat down to read it so that I wouldn’t have to put it down. Wishing Well may have just surpassed Hope Falls as my favorite Melanie Shawn series. The chemistry brewing between Hudson and Harmony is so strong it emanates from the pages. I have loved all of the characters in Wishing Well and am so glad that there are many more Briggs siblings left to have stories written about. Hudson has avoided making a move on Harmony, knowing that it is her dream to leave Wishing Well for the big city, preferably New York. What he fails to realize is that dreams change, and that is no longer what Harmony wants. As she sees her best friends Destiny and Carra find love, happiness and contentment with her brothers, she realizes that she wants those things too. After they give in to “just one night” of passion, Harmony has to figure out a way to convince Hudson that they are right for each other and that he is the future she wants. I loved how she worked with Hudson’s mom to take matters into her own hands. Five plus stars! Bring on Colton’s story… *I received an ARC copy from the author for an honest review.*

    Swoon-guard in place? Check. Arousal blocker activated? Hudson and Harmony are my new favourite couple. Gosh I loved this story. I was hooked at the end of Convincing Cara, when I read the preview. I devoured this book in a day, I could not stop reading it, until the wee hours of the morning. There is nothing to dislike and so much to love!! Hudson is well, yummy and delicious, Harmony is so sweet and FUNNY. I want to be adopted by either family please !!!!

And the chemistry between these two made the pages of the book a little too hot to handle. OH MY. I LOVED how Harmony took control ( don't want to give away spoilers) thank you Melanie and Shawna for that ! And the writing with the one liners..... Why did he have to be the only man in over a year who did put the zippidy in my do da. Where was the justice in that!!! So many laugh out loud moments....and every chapter has a Lorretta Reed saying " It’s better to arrive late than to arrive ugly.” I looked forward to those as much as the story. Knowing that both Harmony and Hudson have a lot of siblings makes me so happy, it means a lot of books set in Wishing Well are in my future. Love the cross overs with Kyle!

As always, this installment was a great one and I can't wait until the next one in the series. Discovering Harmony takes you through the journey of Harmony and Hudson's love story which has been a long time coming. Harmony has been in love with her brother's friend Hudson Reed since she could remember. Growing up she's fantasized of being with him but at the same time traveling the world and living a free life with no attachments. Hudson Reed has been in love with Harmony since the day he set eyes on her as a young boy. He's longed to have a life with Harmony but also dreams of having a family in his home town unlike Harmony who's in a rush to escape their little town. Will these two figure out that they are meant to be and share their dreams or are they just not a match? I highly recommend reading this installment of the series and going through their journey. You will find yourself as I did, laughing crying and cheering for their happy ending.

As part of that deal she is assigned community service, Hudson has to supervise her for 200 hours working on his secret project. He has a hard time continuing to hide his feelings while spending so much time with her. Will Harmony prove her feelings for Hudson are strong enough for the long term? I love these characters and this series. They have wonderful chemistry and Melanie Shawn's writing is as good as ever. Definitely a recommended series if you love romance in small towns.

    I loved the previous 2 books of the Wishing Well series,Destiny's and Cara's stories. I thought, how can Ms Shawn top those two? Well, let me tell you , she did! Cara, Destiny and Harmony have been friends since childhood and have been calling themselves , Chalie's Angels. This time we have Harmony's story.

She has been in love with Hud, a friend of her brothers. Hud, has also been in love with her but 1. She is the sister of her best friends 2. She has said she wants to live the Sex and the City life, and is not interested in marriage and kids. Hud wants a wife and kids and would never subject Harmony to a life she would resent. Let's just say that the dialogue, the budding of heads, the chemistry and their individual admiration for one another, makes this a book you will not want to put down. So make yourself comfy because you too will be loving this one. I can't wait for more stories in Wishing Well. I received this book from the author for an honest review

    Harmony Briggs always knew what she wanted, until she realized she wanted more. The gorgeous Southern beauty knew that only one man would be able to fulfill her wildest dreams and fantasies, but unfortunately, he was just out of reach.

    The third installment of the Wishing Well Texas series did not disappoint. My perception of Harmony in the first two books was not quite a good one. She was painted as a loose party girl and I wasn’t sure I was going to like her. But you can’t judge a book by its cover. She’s just a bit spirited, but a beautiful soul. Unbeknownst to either one, Hudson and Harmony have been hankering for each other since forever. Hud fought his feelings and did not want to act on them.

Unbeknownst to either one, Hudson and Harmony have been hankering for each other since forever. Hud fought his feelings and did not want to act on them. Harmony was never quite sure what was going on in Hud’s mind—he always seemed upset with her. But when the timing is right…and it does take some time in this book to build to the juicy parts. But boy, oh, boy, does it get steamy. Well worth the wait. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I've been waiting for Harmony and Hudson's book since the very beginning. Harmony is the only girl with 8 brothers. She's already had two of her brothers get together with her two best friends, Destiny and Cara. Now Destiny is about to pop with her first child and Cara is about to get married. That's left Harmony feeling a little left out. Her last relationship with "the doctor" ended months ago. She may not have feelings for him anymore, but she has major feelings for his dog Romeo.

So much so that she needs to break him out of doggie jail in the beginning of the book. Of course, Hud ends up being the cop who catches her when she's on the run with the dog. I loved everything about this book and the town of Wishing Well. I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series!

    Just when I thought the next book in a series couldn't possibly be better, I was proven wrong. I really enjoyed the second book in this series and just wasn't expecting this one to top it. But I really loved this book. i thought Harmony was such a great and well written character. There was so much about here that I could relate to. And, I believe a lot of us have had that one guy who we completely crush on and have envisioned ending up with, and this story brings it to life.

I loved the banter and the tension and the back and forth these 2 characters shared. But I think my favorite part was how naturally they ended up getting together and just how well they fit. They both have their flaws and make stupid decisions along the way, but in the end, it is just a feel good story!!
