BLOG TOUR: Hometown Heroes Box Set 1 By Allie Boniface

Hometown Heroes Box Set 1
By Allie Boniface


Welcome to the small town of Lindsey Point, where hunky heroes and smart, sassy heroines abound! For the first time, readers can enjoy the first three books in the Hometown Heroes series by USA Today bestselling author Allie Boniface.

In BEACON OF LOVE, a haunted lighthouse and a 50-year old murder mystery take center stage, along with a romance about to erupt between a NYC travel journalist and a hunky local handyman who’s forced to step in as her cameraman. Lucas wants to protect the town's secrets, but Sophie is bent on uncovering them at all costs. Sparks fly, but local legends are about to crumble…

The secrets continue in INFERNO OF LOVE, when teenage sweethearts Finn and Aubrey are reunited after ten years. But since their summer love affair, a fire has turned him into a hero, while a horrific accident stole her memory. She doesn’t remember him. He’s never forgotten her. Now Finn and Aubrey must come to terms with the past if they have any chance of building a future together.

Finally, get ready for two intertwined love stories in LABYRINTH OF LOVE. Outsider Chase Reardon and local resident Shannon O'Brien thought they were strangers assigned to work on the same small town project, until a forbidden love story from 60 years ago linked them in unimaginable ways. How far will we go, and what kinds of secrets will we keep, to stay with the one we love?

"I really enjoyed reading the stories created by Allie Boniface because they remind me that even in the most unsuspecting situations, everything that is wonderful comes together in the end which is truly indicative of the classic romance novel. Do yourself a favor and read'll be happy you did!" --Today's Writing Woman

Top 10 Reasons to Live in a Small Town

I love small town romance stories. I love reading them, and I love writing them. There’s such an attraction in being able to lose yourself in a place where everyone knows everyone else, where you feel safe, and where you know what to expect day in and day out.

I grew up in a small town, and I live in one as an adult now, too. That environment has obviously shaped the books I write. So it got me to thinking: what’s so great about living in a small town?

  1. They’re safe. You can walk down the middle of Main Street at midnight and not worry about a car hitting you, a stranger mugging you, or even a wild animal attacking you (okay, maybe the last one, if you really live in the wilderness. But probably not).
  2. You know everyone in your school. Some people will say that’s a downfall. As a kid, I know I didn’t love that everyone knew my business all the time. But as an adult, and a teacher, I can say it’s a benefit. Kids are a lot less likely to fall through the cracks when there are fewer of them (kids, not cracks).
  3. Local businesses know their customers by name - and by the products they buy. The woman behind the counter at our local deli knows pretty much everyone’s choice in breakfast sandwich. The owner of the liquor store knows what everyone drinks (and makes sure to order enough of it). You get the idea.
  4. Local restaurants hook you up with bigger servings and free extras because they know you (see #3) and they love that you come in every Tuesday for their $10 Large Pizza with a Dozen Wings special.
  5. They have charming traditions. In my childhood hometown, there is a summer craft fair that is THE place to be seen. The same vendors come every year, the same musical groups play, and whichever high school class is celebrating its 50th reunion has its picture taken on the steps of the gazebo in the middle of the square. It’s lovely. And in the winter, that same square is flooded by the fire department and turned into a skating rink. Every year. For as long as I can remember.
  6. They’re pretty. Sure, every city/town/village has its areas that could use a little cleaning up. But for the most part, small towns have picturesque main avenues, with well-kept homes and gardens and storefronts that change their decorations with the seasons. They pride themselves on their appearances.
  7. They stand up for each other. By and large, if someone in the town needs a helping hand, they’ll get it. Most of the time, they won’t even have to ask. A couple of years ago here, a local barn burned to the ground. Within 48 hours, our community had not only raised over $10,000 for the owners, they’d supplied them with enough hay to feed their cows for a month, and they’d volunteered equipment and materials to help them rebuild.
  8. They raise kids with practical skills. I know this is a big assumption, and not true everywhere in the country, but in rural New York, we still have kids who grow up on farms, who fish and hunt for the meat they use to help feed their families. They learn how to mow a lawn and plow a driveway before they’re 10. They know how to change the oil in a car before they ever drive one. They help their parents with landscaping and construction businesses and know a whole lot about physical labor that their counterparts in the suburbs and cities really don’t.
  9. They’re relatively inexpensive. Nothing costs as much as in the cities. Seriously. I can still get an egg sandwich on a bagel for $1.50, or a slice of pizza and a soda for $3.00. A cup of coffee will cost me $1.00. I can park on any street in the town for free. Try finding that in Manhattan!
  10. They don’t change. I know this could be a negative quality, but I like to see it as a positive. There’s something reassuring about going back to my childhood hometown and knowing that the houses, the school traditions, the church services, and the events of the year won’t change a whole lot. Everything else in this world seems to change at warp speed. In a sleepy little town, it doesn’t work that way. And I like that.

My Hometown Heroes series is set in the fictional small town of Lindsey Point, Connecticut, a coastal beach town with, among other things, a haunted lighthouse, a heroic bartender who pulled 8 people from a fire, a famous poet with a secret in her past, and a whole lot of quirky characters who run the town’s businesses, snoop on each other, fall in love with each other, fight with each other, and protect local legends with their lives.

For the first time, I’ve bundled the first 3 books in this series, and it’s for sale now at all e-book retailers for less than the regular price of just two of the books! In Beacon of Love, you’ll find out about the town’s famous haunted lighthouse, as well as the truth behind the Inferno of Love, you’ll see a beloved local bartender fall in love with a woman from his past who doesn’t remember him...and in Labyrinth of Love, you’ll witness two crazy love stories intersect with a stunning revelation for everyone in the town.

Can’t wait? Neither can I. I hope you’ll come visit Lindsey Point and stay a while!
