Book Review: SILVER BREWER by L.B. Dunbar

SILVER BREWER: The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge

by L.B. Dunbar 
Genre: Over 40 Romance Stand alone
Release Date: September 12, 2019

Olivet Pierson needs his land. 

Name your price, Mr. Harrington. 

She has her reasons, and this muscular mountain of masculinity isn’t going to get in her way. However, her heart has a different plan after she accepts his crazy conditions: three nights up on the ridge.

George Harrington is a quiet, giant of a man. 
No sale, Cricket.
He’s a war hero, a widower, and COO for the family brewing company, but his life lacks spontaneity. Then, she arrives, chirping away at him, roaming his body with those sky-blue eyes, and negotiating for something he won’t put a price on. Too bad his heart is immediately sold.

With the challenge accepted, this silver fox can no longer deny his desires for something a little different.

Welcome to Blue Ridge where sexy silver foxes meet their match of feisty vixens.

The Harrington brothers are a spin-off from Second Chance, but don’t you worry, this over 40 romance can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.


I love romance novels that make me think about and contemplate what I would do in certain situations, and that’s the beauty of romances featuring 40+ characters; they really can move in the most unexpected directions.

L.B. Dunbar’s SILVER BREWER has many twists for the reader. I really did not know which direction this story was going to take. This is definitely a compliment because one thing this book is not is formulaic. I often stopped and thought about what I would do, and I was driving myself crazy. These characters should be grateful their happy-ever-after played out in a few hundred pages.

Not only do Olivet “Letty” Pierson meets George “Giant” Harrington have very different pasts, their futures look poles apart, that is, until they cross paths and recognise something desirable in the other. There is definitely a physical attraction – and Dunbar certainly delivers on the sexy times – but it’s a lot more than that. Letty and Giant recognised something in each other that was strong enough for them to want to explore. And without giving anything away, the amount of relevant, real-life issues and concerns these two had to wade through is not for the faint-hearted.   

I thought Dunbar did a great job in allowing us to understand these characters and what drove them. I was certainly cheering for them to come together even when I could also argue for them to go their separate ways.

There’s certainly more to look forward to in The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge series. We learn a bit more about Giant’s other brothers and my interest is definitely piqued. Can’t wait for the next one!

L.B. Dunbar loves the sweeter things in life: cookies, Coca-Cola, and romance. Her reading journey began with a deep love of fairy tales and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused—yes, that’s the correct word—of having an overactive imagination, to her benefit, such an imagination works well. 

Author of over two dozen novels, she’s created sexy rom-coms for the over 40; intrigue on an island; MMA chaos; rock star mayhem, and sweet small-town romance. In addition, she earned a title as the “myth and legend lady” for her modernizations of mythology as elda lore. Her other duties in life include mother to four children and wife to the one and only.
