    Any Luck at All is book one in the brand new Ashville Brewing series by Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella. I first noticed this cover, it caught my eye right away. Once I read the blurb, I was all in! Each book in this series will focus on one of the four Buchanan siblings, Georgie, Adalia, Lee and Jack. Each one of these four intrigues me, all obviously have such a story to tell. First up is Georgie and I can honestly say that I fell so in love with her. Georgie Buchanan is thirty three year Any Luck at All is book one in the brand new Ashville Brewing series by Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella. I first noticed this cover, it caught my eye right away. Once I read the blurb, I was all in! Each book in this series will focus on one of the four Buchanan siblings, Georgie, Adalia, Lee and Jack. Each one of these four intrigues me, all obviously have such a story to tell. First up is Georgie and I can honestly say that I fell so in love with her. Georgie Buchanan is thirty three years old. She was raised by a cold hearted, controlling father. Georgie and her siblings never were allowed to get to know their grandfather, Beau Buchanan, but just a few months ago, Georgie had managed to visit him in Ashville and they got to know each other. Georgie was also able to tour the brewery her grandfather had founded and run his entire life. Now, her grandfather has unexpectedly passed. While everyone assumed the brewery and house would all go to Georgie’s father, Beau’s son, it didn’t. Everything was left to the four kids. Georgie felt such a connection with her grandfather and she wants this chance to honor him and run the brewery. Even if she doesn’t know a single thing about beer. Personally, she prefers wine! But it feels like it’s the right thing to do. River Reeves is thirty years old and is unexpectedly out of a job. He learned everything there is to know about making beer from Beau Buchanan who was a mentor to him. Losing him was painful. But when he saw Beau’s granddaughter at the will reading, he felt it immediately, a pull to her. As the shock of inheriting the brewery wore off, it was obvious they needed a brewmaster and River needed a job. Was it all coincidence, or could it be fate? “For the first time in her life, Georgie had found a man she was sure she could love.” The connection between Georgie and River was immediate and strong. Something neither of them had ever felt before. But Georgie is now River’s boss. The brewery has been floundering for some time. Everything needs updating. Georgie also feels the stress of proving she was right in taking over the business instead of selling it off. Their relationship will have to remain professional only. Except that she feels like she might be missing out on the love of a lifetime. “River liked her just the way she was. It wasn’t safety she craved from him, it was peace.” This book is the perfect mix of hilarity and sweet. Wait until you meet Aunt Dottie and her crystals. She is hilarious but also, so intuitive. She always seems to know just what to do. And there are countless other eccentric residents who make this so much fun. But there is also so much heart. Both Georgie and River have had childhoods lacking in love. Despite it all, they both grew into adults with so much to give. River is pretty much perfect as Georgie often tells him. And Georgie tries so hard to be strong. I loved watching her fall in love. If you want a book that will make you smile, giggle, sigh and maybe even swoon, this is for you. I feel like I should say here, that there aren’t any steamy scenes in this. It’s more of a fade to black. Usually I prefer a book to be a little steamy. But for this, I didn’t miss it at all. I can’t wait for the next book, Better Luck Next Time, which will be Adalia’s turn. “Two people who fit like this? It was kismet. And that didn’t come along more than once in a lifetime.” For more about this book and so many others, come and visit me at Carol's Crazy Bookish World. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Carol...

    What an adorable RomCom! It’s been awhile since Denise has released a RomCom and now I remember exactly why I’ve loved all her previous ones! She does such a great job of balancing humor with lightheartedness and romance. A.R. Casella and DGS write seamlessly together and I thoroughly enjoyed the book from beginning to end.

Then we’re introduced to River and his very amusing Aunt Dottie, along with the rest of the quirky characters that either worked at Buchanan Brewery or cared for Beau, and I knew this would be a fun read. Add in some animal love, with puppies and a “devil” cat, and I was sold. I laughed at Dottie’s antics throughout the entire novel. The entire seance scene was gold! Watching River and Georgie fight for their HEA was heartwarming and sweet. They complemented each other so well and I loved that River got to introduce Georgie to his brewery world. I also enjoyed Georgie’s sister, Adalie, and can’t wait for her book next! Great start to a new series!

When Georgie Buchanan and her siblings inherit their estranged grandfathers brewery, they must decide if they want to run the business or sell. Georgie is a tenacious business woman who is up for the challenge of turning around the faltering Buchanan Brewery. However, while she knows the business world, she doesn't know anything about beer. She hires River, who just happened to learn his brewing techniques from her grandfather. The attraction between Georgie and River is strong, but quite a few obstacles stand in the couples way. My favorite part is the cast of diverse and eclectic characters that drew me into the Asheville Brewery world. I had so much fun laughing at the antics of Dottie, Josie and Lurch. I recommend this book for fans of Kristan Higgins' Blue Heron Series and anyone who enjoys romance with great characters and lots of humor.

    Georgie Buchanan and River Reeves are most definitely made for each other. Their passion, their connection, their communication - is exactly the foundation needed for a relationship.

Their passion, their connection, their communication - is exactly the foundation needed for a relationship. Albeit a fast, whirlwind of a romance. When Georgie stands her ground of wanting to own her grandfathers brewery, even though her family wants to sell, she’s then left with figuring out how to make this work. She meets River and knows he is what she needs to make the brewery successful, so she jumps at the opportunity presented to her. River, while having a rocky past, is such a sweet man. He’s the kinda guy you want in your court and to not betray. I loved the realness of his character. The last 40% of the book felt slightly rushed but we still got the cute happily ever after for Georgie and River. There was definitely a whole lot of crazy but most of it made you chuckle because these characters are ones like you’ve never seen before. There are many hooks that have me wanting to read the next three books for the siblings NOW and it’s not a cliffhanger by any means. But I want and need more. I think everyone should give this new series a chance, because with any luck at all, you won’t regret reading it either.

    What a great start to what I believe is going to be a fabulous series by DGS and her new co author. This first book sets up most of the storyline for the series set in Asheville NC and centres on Georgie and River. Georgie's grandfather has left his four grandchildren his brewery and it's Georgie who wants to make a go of it and turn the brewery into something special again. She needs help from her siblings but more importantly, she needs River's guidance and know how on crafting beer.

This first book has all of the above, but also a sweet and insta love story between Georgie and River, who was so swoony. There's an adorable dog, and a wacky cat that gets up to mischief. If you are looking for a fun and lighthearted read, grab this one, you can't go wrong.

If anything could go wrong it will! Georgie and River they are just perfect for each other instantly. River is swoonworthy! Such a great man. I loved both main characters and all the weird combination of other characters especially River's aunt Dottie. She is the best! I have to mention adorable pup Hops and crazy cat Jezebel too! Now I'm struggling to wait for the next installment but I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves a really good romance comedy.

    Swoon! I wasn't expecting so much sweetness from a book about a brewery but my goodness I love I these characters! Why can't every guy be more like River? I wanted to hug him so many times. And sweet Georgie. Love her and her heart. My heart hurt for them at times but they really are perfect for each other. That ending was seriously perfect. Josie trying to pop the bubbles was everything. This cast of characters is hilariously weird. I'm very intrigued! They're crazy and kooky and I can't wait for Swoon!

    This book is a awesome start of an amazing RomCom series! 😍 An estranged Grandfather leaves his grandchildren his home and brewery. They don’t have one bit of knowledge on running one so determined Georgie decides to make it a success in his memory while trying to bring her siblings together. She of course can’t do it alone so she hires River who is not only perfect for for the company but perfect for her. Third person point of view threw me off at first as I’m not used to reading these types. T This book is a awesome start of an amazing RomCom series! 😍 An estranged Grandfather leaves his grandchildren his home and brewery.

She of course can’t do it alone so she hires River who is not only perfect for for the company but perfect for her. Third person point of view threw me off at first as I’m not used to reading these types. Took me a good chapter to get into the flow but the story makes up for it 😊. I completely fell in love with River. His personality was way too addictive to not love. He’s not your typical cocky man but sweet, sometimes vulnerable and a completely loyal tall dark and handsome man. Georgie is successful, confident and has a good head on her shoulders. Both with past emotional baggage due to their parents. You get to see if they get past their fears and give in to each other. I couldn’t avoid having my heart melt for them. I just loved the growing relationships and quirky personalities in this story. Between the differences with the Buchanan siblings, the employees, crazy Aunt Dottie and the evil cat, this is constant entertainment and laughs. Now I’m stuck here waiting for the next one to release and I can’t wait! No cliffhanger but this will surely make you have a strong attachment that you want to see their stories continue. You won’t regret picking up Any Luck at All, you don’t need luck to fall in love with the people of Asheville Brewery! ❤️ (I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. The opinion given is mine alone and not influenced by anyone else.)

    I love to read Denise's books. Her new co-writer is a great new twist. I really like how this book flowed with both writers. I love everything about this one. Asheville NC is right down the road from my house so I also like that I can see that she put the work in to making this book seem like I was there. Georgie and River are great together.

Like all of them you have your good and bad. The people you want to see in this books make great comedy. Everyone will love Dottie. She has you laughing after you are done reading the book. The end makes you feel like you accomplished everything with them. I think that it also has a few moments that make you realize that you can do things if you have the will to get it done. This book was one you want to stay up all night and read. I haven't done that in awhile. I am happy that Denise and A.R have started writing this series. I can't wait for the next book.

I laughed so much from all the crazy antics, mostly caused by Aunt Dottie and a few other quirky characters. The story flows smoothly and you wouldn’t know that it is co-written. I’m still trying to figure out which author wrote what, lol. We are introduced to all of the Buchanan family and I can’t wait to get to know each better in the upcoming books. I will be impatiently waiting for Adalia’s story coming in November. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book.

    This was one of the sweetest stories I've read in a long while. It's almost wholesome, that just absolute sense of respect, love, loyalty, and rightness. Georgie and River are fire. Almost fitting into that insta love genre, their connection is consuming and intense from the get go. However, they have to fight, tooth and nail, for their HEA. The writing is engrossing and, honestly, perfection. The plot is romantic and entertaining.

It was a breath of fresh air, and an inspiration. This story makes you want to follow your dreams and grab everyone that surrounds you on the way. It was family and community unity at its finest and I adored every second.

The series will feature the Buchanan siblings as they try to run Asheville Brewing after they inherited it from their grandfather. The main characters of this book are Georgie and River. Georgie is a businesswoman. She funded and sold her own company so at the beginning of the book she doesn't have a job which made her decision to keep the brewery instead of selling. River was close to Georgie's grandfather, but he worked in another brewery and he has a passion for making beer. He also ends up been without a job at the beginning of the book because his friend and partner went and sold his business (I would really like to know what Finn was thinking when he did that and hopefully I will find out in the next book). So you have Georgie who needs a brewer and River a brewer who needs a job and since she is a smart woman she hires him even if it meant that they would stop the relationship that started to blossom. The book was almost a 5-star read but two things prevented it from happening. The first thing is Georgie's constant need of love and approval from her very distant father and siblings. She even went to therapy before the events of the book, but I think that she should have not stopped visiting. She did whatever she could to please her siblings who seemed very absent and her father was always in the back of her mind and it affected her relationship with River. I would have liked to see her doing the groveling and standing up to her siblings when it came to River. Instead, he was the one who did all the work and she remained in the making plans phase. It was all intentions, but no actions. The second thing that was off for me, was the absence of the other Buchanan siblings. We see them a little in the beginning and then Georgie's sister appears at the end to set up the events for her own book, but that's it. Unless you count them putting obstacles to Georgie and River's relationship from the telephone. The good had some good parts too though. After a long time, I chuckled when reading a book that was labeled as a comedy. River's aunt is over the top, but for some weird reason, it worked very well for the story. She might be my favorite character and I hope we will see more of her in the next books. Adalia's story is next and her man will be Finn, River's former business partner. The first moment these two appeared together, I got immediately the feeling that they should become a couple and I guess I got my wish come true. Overall, the book was good and I would recommend it.

I really enjoyed the insight into the beer making process. The authors also have some absolutely hilarious characters working at the brewery. There are so many seriously laugh out loud moments. I also enjoyed the basic premise of this very dysfunctional family trying to work together to build an award winning brewery. I would recommend this book to romance lovers that like a little humor. If you are a fan of beer you'll love this one. The book is a closed door romance but there is enough sexual tension to keep things interesting. Long story short - I loved the book and I can't wait for the next installments in the Asheville Brewing series.

There are some stipulations that come with taking over the brewery and it leaves the oldest Buchanan grandchild, Georgie, questioning whether or not it was a good decision to keep the brewery in the family, especially when she realizes she has a major crush on her new employee! The town of Asheville, NC reminds me of Lucy Score's "Blue Moon" Series. It's filled with some very eclectic characters that are sure to make you laugh! Dottie, Josie, Lurch, Jezebel....just to name a few. ;) Fans of DGS and Lucy Score will fall in love with these characters and this town and you'll find a new author to "stalk" in A.R. Casella. I can't wait to see what happens in the rest of the series and with the rest of the Buchanan grandchildren.

    I don’t even know where to begin with the review, I mean this book was amazing. You could feel something big was going to happen, and boy howdy it did. I can’t go into what happens. But I’ll tell you this... there is a devil cat, some crystals, and The Hair of Hops. So, if you don’t get this book, you are missing out on a great story. If you don’t get this book, and you later decide that you are going to read it, you are going to say to yourself- why didn’t I read this sooner.

When the failing Buchanan Brewing Company is passed to the combative Buchanan heirs, they are split down the middle on what to do with it. None of them know a thing about making beer nor do they want to. Unfortunately, before they can even get started, there is one disaster after another leaving all to wonder if they can even come back from it. The Buchanan's are not a very agreeable group but with Georgie at the helm there is a slight ray of hope for the company. River Reeves and his madcap Aunt Dottie are willing to help in any way they can but sadly that is not always a good thing. There are too many eccentric supporting characters to mention but they will leave you rolling with laughter. If you are ready for a lighthearted, endearing, funny read, Any Luck At All is the book for you. It left me happy and smiling and in a happy place that only a touch of the mystic realm can achieve. I highly recommend this magical book.

    Any Luck at All is phenomenal!! The first book in the series is filled with lots of laughs and romance that will melt your heart.

The first book in the series is filled with lots of laughs and romance that will melt your heart. Denise Grover Swank and A.R Casella did an outstanding job co-writing this book. The writing is flawless and story flows so naturally.  This first story follows Georgie, who inherits her grandfather's brewery along with her siblings. Taking on this task may be more than she bargained for. Upon the agreement of accepting the Brewery, her grandfather had placed two stipulations to ensure the Brewery succeeds. There may be some bumps in the road at first, but with her business experience and her go-getter attitude is just what the company needs. River is beyond swoon-worthy. He was taught the ins and outs of the Brewery and ended up starting one of his own with a friend, Finn. However, Finn made a huge decision without River. River can't trust his own friend and decides he wants nothing to do with Big Catch. But as luck would have it, Georgie needs a brew master and River is the perfect choice. He and Georgie are instantly drawn to one another, but aren't sure the line should be crossed because of the roles they play in each others life. We meet some other amazing characters, like Aunt Dottie, who is just the right amount of wacky and loving.  If you love Rom-Coms this is definitely one you will want to dive into. I am so excited for the next three books in this series and look forward to seeing what happens with Buchanan Brewery.

    This book is the complete definition of a romantic comedy! From the sweet "awwww" moments to the "spit out my drink laughing" moments, you get it all with this book! Georgie is a strong woman, but even inside of a strong woman there are demons. I loved how this book showcased that even strong women have things they struggle with and are able to overcome. River is the definition of a perfect guy. He is sweet, strong, and masculine. He is the perfect balance to Georgie.

    A sweet and entertaining story with richly layered characters. I was reminded of Knives Out when we are introduced to the Buchanan family. A dysfunctional and wealthy family gathered for the reading of a will. That is where Georgie's whole world changes. I enjoyed the world of breweries and wacky locals that she finds herself suddenly immersed in. I loved the relationship between River and Georgie. I want to know more about all of these characters.

    Any Luck at all is a good fresh story. The characters both the human and furry are great and entertaining. I love that the storyline has many layers. The other aspect of the book that I love is that the turmoil isn’t drawn out to great lengths. The book held my interest the entire time.

    I adored this book! It was sweet, humorous and exciting! I don’t typically read stand alone books or romances cause they don’t typically hold my attention as easy but this one I couldn’t put down! It gave me all the feels! I loved all the characters especially aunt Dottie! Georgie is so relatable she’s strong and independent but also has a vulnerable aspect to her! She simply wants to be loved accepted and seen! Her grandpa passing and the prospect of a new adventure in a new town was just what I adored this book! It was sweet, humorous and exciting!

The switch between Georgies narrative and Rivers was done amazingly well! The time and dedication put into researching and getting the details of brewing beer made the story come together as a whole and made for a really interesting aspect to the book! I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to read more stories with in the Asheville brewery world! Excellent job!

    When I first heard that Denise Grover Swank was writing a new rom-com series, I was excited. And when I found out the series was going to be based around a brewery, I was intrigued. I thought it sounded like such a fun setup for a story, and I was right!

When Georgie Buchanan inherits her grandfather’s brewery, she has no idea how to brew beer (she’s a wine gal!), so she hires the best brewer in town. The only problem is that she starts falling for him, and she doesn’t want to mix business with pleasure. But they are inexorably drawn to each other, so what ensues is a lot of hijinks and hilarity. While Georgie and River’s romance was fun to see play out, some of my favorite people in the book are the secondary characters. River’s Aunt Dottie provides so much comic relief, and Lurch and Josie offered just enough crazy to be hilarious. Fans looking for explicit steamy scenes should look elsewhere, as most of the bedroom passages are fade to black. I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series and the couple that is featured there. Their interactions in this book have me excited to see how their romance plays out. Anyone looking for a sweet, funny, and poignant romantic comedy should pick up this book! Can't wait for the rest of the series.

    I love reading books about places I used to live. I miss North Carolina as it is such a beautiful, eclectic state. Asheville is one of my favorite cities in North Carolina. I really liked this book even though I'm not a big romance reader. I didn't think the romance was over the top or too mushy. I absolutely loved Dottie and the "seance." The cat is also a hilarious addition. I thought the characters in the book were pretty complex and their actions plausible. I loved that it was a HEA book.

    Another hit by Denise Grover Swank! I read everything she writes, and this was no exception. The characters were all smart and kind, which I loved. I don't drink so I wasn't super tied to the brewery storyline but I feel like it was not overly complicated and easy to follow. As someone who knows nothing about beer, I was still able to follow that aspect of the story. I will definitely read the other books in the series.

    This was a fun rom-com. I loved the characters and witty humor. I can't wait for more in this series. Based in Ashville, NC its a favorite location of mine and a beautiful area. I love that its based on a family brewery and that that family doesn't seem to like each other much. The main characters Georgie and River are great, and I love the name River. Excited for more.

    Jeeves Reads Romance

    While this wasn't a total winner for me, it's a solid start to a brand new series and is sure to hit the spot with fans of a sweeter romance with a women's fiction feel. This focuses on family, emotion, hometown charm, and making a business work, while still incorporating romance throughout. I genuinely liked Georgie and River, but personally would've liked more focus on them. With four siblings, countless supporting characters, and plenty of potential love stories in the works, it was a lot to While this wasn't a total winner for me, it's a solid start to a brand new series and is sure to hit the spot with fans of a sweeter romance with a women's fiction feel. This focuses on family, emotion, hometown charm, and making a business work, while still incorporating romance throughout. I genuinely liked Georgie and River, but personally would've liked more focus on them. With four siblings, countless supporting characters, and plenty of potential love stories in the works, it was a lot to keep track of. All of the extra "fluff" took away from the relationship that was developing, and caused me to disconnect from the story at times. I still liked it, and I think now that most of the setup for the series has been laid out, the sequels will read better. The story follows Georgie, a woman whose estranged grandfather passed away, leaving his brewery to his four grandchildren. None of the siblings are that close (and one just met the rest of the family), but now they have to decide what to do about the business. When Georgie meets River, a brewmaster in need of a new job, there's an instant connection there. But mixing business with pleasure is never a good idea, and there are all kinds of other complications surrounding their potential relationship. As the two spend more time together, it becomes difficult to resist the pull between them, but secrets and family drama (along with plenty of other small disasters) stand in their way. It's a light yet heartfelt read, pulling on your emotions without getting too heavy. The tone is serious overall despite the humor throughout. I actually found it to be a bit dry and sedate, though there were moments that I really enjoyed. It's a sexy book but there's no real steam, so fans of a sweeter read will like this one. I just wish there had been more focus on the couple, because I definitely got bored and skimmed a few times. I even set it down for a day or two and wasn't in a rush to get back to the story. I think the series as a whole has plenty of potential. While this does stand on its own, there are a few loose ends that still haven't been resolved, and lots of clues to future books. One of those loose ends that I really wish had been wrapped up? River's best female friend definitely has feelings for him, and she causes some drama that he is 100% clueless to. I'm sure it'll be addressed in future books, but it left a sour note on a few scenes. Ultimately, this sits somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for me, but I'm rounding up because I think it does do a good job of setting up the series. I received a free copy via Social Butterfly PR and am voluntarily leaving a review of this heartfelt romance.

I give Any Luck at All 5 stars. I loved that these authors give readers a book with great characters. Family is such an important theme in the book and I loved meeting Aunt Dottie and hearing about Georgie's grandfather. It was beautiful to see a love blossom in the midst of tragedy. The personal growth of Georgie was so satisfying and made the outcome that much better. Romance readers will devour this book!!
