Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles' new family series, The Merriams, is back with a good guy trying to get his bad boy on, a good girl starting a risky perfume venture, and everyone's favorite matchmakers.

Beau Masters wants to be a bad boy.

All his life, he's been careful to be the good guy country singer, the boy-next-door, who opens doors for ladies and says "aw, shucks, ma'am." But a decades-old secret blows the hinges off the door to his life. Everything he thought he knew has scattered to the wind, leaving him questioning who he really is.

So when Caitlyn Merriam asks him to be the celebrity spokesperson for the new perfume she's creating in far-off Provence, he swaps out his white cowboy hat for a black one and packs his bags to get away from the past.

Caitlyn didn't expect the gorgeous rockstar to join her in her quaint farmhouse in the French countryside. She figures it will only worsen her crush on him. But as Beau tries to get his bad boy on (rather unsuccessfully, in her opinion), she knows something is wrong and calls in back-up. Uncle Arthur and Aunt Clara might be bent on matchmaking these days, but they know how to straighten someone out, and Caitlyn needs all the help she can get to keep her spokesperson on track.

But soon it's not just about business, and they're holding hands and walking the lavender fields together. Until Beau's secret threatens to bring down her new venture and the love blossoming between them.

Once again, another excellent book and series! I was sad for the ending of the Dare Valley series but the Merriams will be another great one, not to be missed. “Love Among Lavender” is book2 from the Merriam Series. Ava does it again with the way she describes the area and the process for perfume making. You can smell and feel the beautiful lavender fields just from Ava’s description. My family and I will be in France next month and one of the excursions we are doing is to a lavender factory. I was inspired by this great book. By reading the story, I felt as been there. This is the romance of Beau Masters, a country music singer, and Caitlyn Merriam, an entrepreneur. Caitlyn Merriam works for Merriam Enterprise making perfume. Caitlyn believes Beau would be perfect as a spokesperson and role model for her new perfume line. Soon after meeting each other, their attraction and love becomes the center of their lives. I love that Aunt Clara and Uncle Arthur show up once again with their matchmaking tricks. Live Beau and Caitlyn lifelong romance.

Another great story by Ava Miles! Ms. Miles writes stories with all of the "feels" and Love Among Lavender won't disappoint. It is the second book in The Merriams series and definitely worth reading. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this wonderful series! I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

For me this book was the best one so far. I guess the reason is it hit home for me. Anyway, I loved Beau and Caitlyn's love story. I hated the pain Beau's mom put him through about who is father really was. I was so happy when he learned the truth. When I can relate to the main characters like I did Beau and Caitlyn my heart broke when theirs did. I cried a lot reading this book. I also enjoyed how Beau took care of Chou-Chou. Ava you out did yourself on this book and I thank you. I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

It doesn't matter how much I praise the writing of Ava Miles, you need to read her books to understand. Love Among Lavender is the second book in her newest series, The Merriams. This book definitely stands on its own, but you will want to read the first one so be prepared!! The characters are so wonderful that you want to be a part of the family. This is another book not to be missed. "I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own."

4.5 Stars This is the second book in the series and the charm of this series continues on with this book. When reading this one I could see the rolling lavender fields and could easily picture the scenery of France. It painted such a beautiful whimsical picture in my mind. I love the feels that this book brought. It's definitely a make you feel good story. My heart goes out to Beau because his life is turned completely upside down. He's on a journey to find his self, but along the way will he lose the true essence of himself? I loved the baby goat. So adorable and those scenes make you swoon picturing the goat with Beau. I loved Caitlyn and her message she wants to get out with the perfume she is creating. The whole process of creating the perfume is so cool and intriguing. I really enjoyed learning the process. Another thing about this book it made the characters really think about themselves, but it made me stop and think as a reader as well. It's a beautiful love story that pulls all the emotions from the reader, but with Arthur and Clara humor is present as well. It's a book the easily pulls you in.

The second book in Ava Miles The Merriams spin-off of her Dare Valley series is a delightful story .Caitlyn and Beau are complex characters dealing with past issues as well as new ones. Aunt Clara & Uncle Arthur show up to continue their matchmaking ways. Even if you haven’t read any of Ava Miles’ other books, you will thoroughly enjoy this one.

I love the Merriam family. Arthur and Clara are up to their matchmaking tricks again. Caitlyn is making perfume and she wants Beau to be the spokesperson. When they meet, it is an instant attraction, but business is business. Beau wants to do it, but he has a couple of conditions. Caitlyn agrees and starts to head back to France. Beau's mama/manager is withholding some information from him and decides that she always knows best. Beau has had enough and decides he needs time away. So, he goes to France with Caitlyn. Beau is wrestling with some hard things and knows something needs to change. Boy do they change. Can Caitlyn accept the new Beau? Will his fans accept the new Beau? They now have mixed business with personal, can they do that and have their relationship survive?

Another excellent book!! They keep getting better and better and harder to put down and go to sleep after you start reading. Love Among Lavender is book 2 of the Merriam Series. This book can be read as a standalone but is much better if you read book one first. Love Among Lavender is the story of Beau Masters and Caitlyn Merriam. Beau Masters is a country music singer. Caitlyn Merriam works for her family’s company, Merriam Enterprise, in a subsidiary of it making perfume. Caitlyn believes Beau would be perfect as a spokesperson for her new line of perfume, one for women with a man selling it. I won’t tell you more, other than there are always events in our lives that happen that make use decide our fate and this is not exception. These obstacles are what makes us who we are and what shapes us in our lives. Ava Miles has a way of dragging us in and you feel like you are right there experiencing the story unfold with the characters. I love how in this series we are learning about new crafts; the first story was hand dying yarn and now this one is the perfume industry. I appreciate all the work that goes into learning and writing about these processes. This series is by far my favorite, the amazing characters the unique animals that steal the show. This is a must read if you want love and laughter in your life. You will want to read Ava Miles other series after you read this one.

LOVE AMONG LAVENDAR This is a truly beautiful book with its roots in truth and self-love. I loved each of the characters – Caitlyn, Beau & Ibrahim. I loved the connections between them and the incredible story that Ava has woven. It is reach, heart-felt, warm and, I believe, one of Ava’s best books to date. Read it and re-read it like I did. Thank you AVA! I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own.

This is the second book in the Merrion series but can be read as a stand alone as well this is the story of Caitlyn Merrium and Beau Masters. Caitlyn is starting her own perfume line and is looking for the perfect person to be her spokesperson and she thinks she’s found him in Beau an all American Country music star. Beau is going through a lot of upheaval in his life and is starting to question everything about his life after an invitation from Caitlyn he decides so join her on her lavender farm in France where he can find himself sitting in the fields with an orphan goat named Chou-Chou. This book has lots of characters from previous books including Uncle Arthur Hale and wife Clara. I highly recommend reading this book and am looking forward to the next in the series.

Love Among Lavender by Ava Miles Talk about an effective hook! A gorgeous man to be the spokesperson for a female perfume! Caitlyn’s enthusiasm and personality for her concept will convince Beau to jump in. Caitlyn and Beau's first meeting kicks things off and it doesn’t slow down from there. Their attraction is evident from the first meeting and you will find yourself wrapped up in their journey. The description of the area and the process for perfume making was great! I felt like I was learning something new and exciting. You could see the lavender fields just from Ava’s description. Now to go there! The Dare Valley and the Merriam series make you feel a part of their story and each book continues the thread from previous books. Caitlyn and Beau are both on their own personal journeys and in that they are discovering truths about themselves. While some stretch their talents and others challenge their inner strength. Caitlyn wants to lead and striving to “prove” she can lead a successful project for the company. Beau is struggling with recently revealed personal information that will test his fortitude to be his own person. It is beautiful to watch their relationship thrive and grow. Grab your copy to watch their love blossom into a lasting lifelong love. "I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.
