After Brady Collins’ ex-wife dies, he receives devastating news—his nine-month-old son Sam isn’t his son at all. And Sam’s wealthy maternal grandparents want custody of the child. Brady knows he’s in for the fight of his life. But regardless of what any blood test says, Sam is his son, and Brady will go to any lengths to keep him.
Brady’s attorney tips him off that one major life change would virtually assure him of winning guardianship of baby Sam at the final hearing: an impending marriage. And his friend Hope is willing to step in as the loving and devoted fiance.
Local radio celebrity Hope Daniels has been driven by a solitary goal her entire life, and after a happy accident she’s finally offered her dream job. But if the truth comes out about her arrangement with Brady, she may miss the chance of a lifetime and stand in the way of a dear friend’s dreams.
As Brady and Hope make sacrifices to help each other in their times of need, they risk uncovering a truth neither of them expects to find.

Genre: contemporary romance
Once again, Ms. Hunter has written a deep, satisfying romance that pierces the heart. The gripping cover is just a glimpse of what’s inside. Brady and Hope are two loveable characters with complex thoughts and raw emotions. Though they’re thrust into a romance they didn’t expect, their journey is sweet and organic and sticks with you long after the last page. Honeysuckle Dreams is a standalone novel, however, readers of Blue Ridge Sunrise will get a glimpse of past characters. I look forward to what Ms. Hunter will bring readers next.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys marriage-of-convenience romances with a twist. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars!
