Review: A Cup of Autumn (Silver Falls #3) by Melissa McClone

He thought he had the perfect plan…

When elite university professor Keaton Andrews walks into a meeting with the dean, he expects to hear that his tenure application is on track. Instead, his beloved department is cut. Regrouping in Silver Falls with family seems like his best option. One morning, he takes a risk and orders a pumpkin spice latte from the beautiful barista at the local coffee shop. Too bad she doesn’t seem to find him nearly as intriguing as he finds her…

Raine Hanover is no longer swayed by a charming smile, especially by a nerdy—and distractingly handsome—academic. She’s taking a break from romance and focusing on running her increasingly busy coffee shop. But when Raine is involuntarily put in charge of organizing the town’s Halloween bash, Keaton jumps in to help, and it’s not long before sparks, and kisses, fly.

As the leaves begin to fall, Raine wonders if she should risk taking another chance on happily ever after, especially with a man who has dreams and goals so far away from Silver Falls and her.
My Review: 
Sweet, small town charm.  
This sweet, clean romance is an opposites attract story.  Raine owns a coffee shop in Silver Falls and is overworked and understaffed.  At the worst moment, she has another task dropped on her, now she has to find time to organize the Boo Fest, an annual Halloween festival.  She doesn’t know how she will manage running her shop and planning a festival and this causes even more stress for her.  That’s when Keaton, who recently lost his teaching job, and came to Silver Falls to spend time with his family, steps up and offers to help with the event planning.  As Raine and Keaton work together, they start to fall for each other.  The problem is, Keaton is only in town temporarily and Raine will not do a long distance relationship.  The last one only caused her heartbreak.
I enjoyed reading about Raine and Keaton and seeing how they finally get their happily ever after.  I enjoyed the small town feel of the book.  The other characters were also fun to catch up with as I read the previous books in the series.
