Jefferson Lee Davis, Holly Creek’s new Director of Publicity, is gearing up for the next big town event, the summer Rose Festival. The job is running smoothly, but the course of true love has hit a rocky patch. His hunky boyfriend, Sheriff Zane Yarbrough, is receiving mysterious phone calls he doesn’t want to discuss. While Jefferson Lee is blindsided by jealousy, the second shoe drops with the appearance of a handsome stranger in the small tight-knit community. Needing answers, Jefferson Lee enlists his best gal-pal Clover Crofton to help find out what secrets Zane is hiding. When they land themselves in more trouble than Jefferson Lee bargained for, he and Zane face the first big test of their relationship. Zane and Jefferson Lee must work through their trust issues if they’re going to make it as a couple, and Clover may just have a thing or two to learn herself.

Spring Fever pretty much picks up where Dogwood Days ended. We have Jefferson Lee and Sheriff Zane in a relationship and Jefferson is now the Director of Publicity for Holly Creek.

The first page of this book had me LOLing in bed because Jefferson cannot let go of the fact that people in this small town have seen his bare butt. Sure, it was as an infant… or so he thinks before he is told he and Zane should close the curtains at night. But wait, I want to see what was going on when those curtains were open because Sheriff Zane has become a dirty talker in this book… mmm hmm. He sure has.

This is much shorter than Dogwood Days was so I will keep my review short.

First, this CANNOT be read as a standalone, don’t even attempt it. You must read the first book before this or nothing and no one will make sense.

That being said, I really adored seeing more of Zane and Jefferson Lee as their relationship progresses. They fell so hard, fast and simple into one another that it was refreshing to see a bit of doubt peek into their bubble of warm and fuzzy and OMG it was hilarious to see Jefferson Lee overreact. Of course, he wouldn’t be himself if he didn’t involve his BFF Clover in on his doubt and once again, the comedy blunders these two manage to get themselves into had me in stitches. They were spot on with Lucy and Ethel sprinkled with a bit of Gladys Kravitz as they tried to scope out the new man in town.

This was again, so much fun. I can’t believe the smile that stayed on my face reading this and I can’t believe that I couldn’t put it down, not even while I made my family dinner.

But um… that end though… okay Ms. Dennison. I am waiting for the next book. You can’t leave it like that and can I just say I hope a certain redhead is there when Jefferson Lee arrives… I kinda need to know more about him. Kay? Thanks.

Spring Fever is a fantastic installment to this series of a quirky small town full of characters that may know your business and gossip behind your back but they do it with the best of intentions and ultimately with love. It’s a continuation of the swoon worthy romance between a man in uniform and the smart mouthed bundle of energy that has captured his heart.
