It’s summertime in Cottonbloom, where two lovers find themselves at a crossroads just as things start to heat up. . .
Regan Lovell grew up on the wealthy Mississippi side of Cottonbloom—and now, as mayor, she’s determined to save it from the fate of so many small towns. Part of her plan to help the local economy is the Labor Day tomato festival. If only she wasn’t being undermined by Sawyer Fournette, who’s planning a crayfish-themed celebration on the Louisiana side of the river on the very same weekend. The pranks and sabotage are getting out of hand, and she’s had it with him—no matter how much she enjoyed those stolen hours in his truck bed, so many years ago…
Sawyer knows that Regan's never forgiven him for breaking her heart—but despite his reputation as a low-class swamp rat, he’d never hurt the woman who still secretly drives him crazy with desire. Someone in Cottonbloom has it out for her, though, and Sawyer intends to watch her back…and the rest of her too, if she can ever let go of her distrust. But will a common enemy be enough to unite them—and finally fulfill the promises they made one passionate night under the stars?
“Laura Trentham’s romances are like the icing on the cake, the extra scoop of chocolate ice cream or a perfect summer day…” - Tome Tender Book Blog
“I am really sad that this series is over as I have fallen in love with Cottonbloom. I can't wait to see what Laura Trentham writes next!” - Love’s A State of Mind“Till I Kissed You is full of spark and snark. There is heat and tension, with a bit of a whodunnit thrown in there for good measure.” - BJ’s Book Blog
An award-winning author, Laura Trentham was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. Although, she loved English and reading in high school, she was convinced an English degree equated to starvation. She chose the next most logical major—Chemical Engineering—and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years.
She writes sexy, small town contemporaries and smoking hot Regency historicals. The first two books of her Falcon Football series were named Top Picks by RT Book Reviews magazine. When not lost in a cozy Southern town or Regency England, she's shuttling kids to soccer, helping with homework, and avoiding the Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that is almost as large as the to-be-read pile of books on her nightstand.
Rating: 5 stars

Reagan and Swayed were Hugh school sweethearts . Sadly though their romance went bottoms up no thanks to her mamma . See Reagan's mamma felt Swayed wasn't good enough ,from the wrong side of the river and all....well mamma you're in for surprise !
Reagan grows up to become Mayor of Cottonbloom and she's desperate to save her little town ny hosting a festival in hopes if winning a competition but so is Sawyer , from the other side of the river . So that's how their paths meet up again ....
This book was Heart of Dixie meets up with Miss Marples. Everything about it hit my #happyreadingspot# in my brain . From the setting to the dash of mystery to steamy live being rekindled
