Peek Inside Her Unexpected Detour

When an ice storm sends her car skidding off the road, workaholic Kayla Daniels is stranded in Mount Pleasant. Fortunately, rescue comes in the form of Brent Masterson, who's hot enough to tempt Kayla into doing something she never thought she could do...a one-night stand. Brent has his own demons, and he won't risk his heart again. And how exactly did he end up in Kayla's bed last night? But sometimes it takes is an ice storm to show two broken hearts the way home.

Sometimes it's not the destination, but the detour...

Kayla has the perfect strategy for a broken heart: work, work, and more work. Then a storm sends her car skidding off the road, stranding her in Mount Pleasant. Fortunately, rescue comes in the form of the incredibly handsome but gruff Brent Masterson. And he's hot enough to tempt Kayla into doing something she never thought she could do...

Brent Masterson swore he would never give into the fierce attraction that's been sizzling between him and Kayla since they first met. He has his own demons, and he won't risk his heart again. Not even for someone as gorgeous and amazing as Kayla. So...how exactly did he end up in Kayla's bed last night?

But sometimes all it takes is an ice storm to show two broken hearts the way home…

This is the second book I've read by Kyra and I like it even more than the first. The whole concept of the Checkerberry Inn made me want to drag the hubby out for an extended weekend at a nearby B&B. The story was a pleasant mix of complex and yet still easy-going which was great. I read to e... ...more

This was such a cute little romance and the perfect way to start a new series. Both Kayla and Brent were damaged and realistically flawed characters that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I really enjoyed this story by author Kyra Jacobs. Kayla is in a situation that anyone would find trying, being suspended, without pay, and stranded at a small inn in Michigan. Not only that, she has to deal with a grumpy, sour Brent, a man not willing to let anyone in. But still, the inn is ench... ...more

By Mindy Lou's Book Review March 09, 2019

A cute small town trope. I love the setting of the Checkerberry Inn and Ruby was great. The way Brent and Miles adored their grandma Ruby. The way she tried to subtly matchmake Brent and Kayla.
The attraction was there from the start and these two couldn't seem to keep their eyes off of each othe... ...more

Her Unexpected Detour is the first book I've read by Kyra Jacobs and I'll certainly be coming back and reading more of the Checkerberry Inn series.
