    1. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum I knew I had to read Head Start as soon as I saw the synopsis because of reasons Also because it fell into the I wanna bang that tiger in the hoodie cover category.Yep, I have zero shame and I luuuuuuuuurv Cougar Town I also loved the idea of an older woman younger male storyline and I immediately went and tried to bully Shelby into reading this with me It was she who pointed out that we had not only read and not enjoyed a previous book in this series, bu [...]

    2. What can I say Freya Barker is a treasure of an author With every book of hers that I ve had the privilege to be a part of, she gets better and better Head Start is no exception This is the final installment of the Cedar Tree series and I am so sad to see it end I have to say, besides Like Arrows, this was my fave book of the series Barker weaves an intricate and suspenseful tale filled with twists and turns And I LOVED Neil I love a story of unrequited love and there aren t a lot of them Neil h [...]

    3. I m not even sure how or where to start with this one I ve never hidden in my prior reviews regarding Ms Barkers story telling skill nor the community created in Cedar Tree how much I enjoy both and savour the stories I mean no disrespect when I say when I tell people I adore reading and when they ask what genre I read,that some don t treat romantic fiction as a valid type It s not serious writing nor reading and that lack of respect and courtesy offends me as it takes a swing at my personal cho [...]

    4. This author is amazing Head Start is only the second book I ve read of Freya Barker but she has blown me away with both books There is so much feeling in her stories and she does such an amazing job of writing the perspective a person who has suffered trauma The Heros she writes are everything you can dream up They are strong, protective and reliable men who take care of the people they love The heroines are strong, independent women who have suffered a trauma and rise above it all The emotions [...]

    5. Favorite Quotes No Karly, I m not going on a singles cruise with you Because those things are like a floating sausage fests I accept, because really when a young guy built like a tank offers to help you move, especially after your family ditched you for an aquatic meat market, you don t pass it up That twatwaffle has a potty mouth and a temper Think I ll pass on a second date, and change my phone number Dare to be happy Kenny There s no payoff without a little risk, and regrets are so much harde [...]

    6. Reviewing on behalf of Trile B s Book Blog OMG You know the saying Go out with a bang Well bloody hell Freya Barker has certainly achieved that with Neil and Kendra s story, the 7th and final book of the Cedar Tree series Each book in the series can be read as a standalone but you REALLY don t want to miss out on all these wonderful yet REAL characters.Not read any of them yet Then what on earth have you been doing Below are the links to all of the previous Cedar Tree books.Slim To None 1 You ll [...]

    7. Holy tater tits, I can t believe this is the last Cedar Tree book Oh, and I am SO stealing that saying from Kendra Neil and Kendra have been dancing around each other for years, but the pretty 40 year old physical therapist is one stubborn and independent woman She spent too many years watching her mom got full out cougar after her dad died, so to say that Kendra has a chip on her shoulder about dating a younger man would be an understatement Neil is sick and tired of being labeled a kid at 32, [...]

    8. 4.5 stars Neil has his heart set on Kendra Kendra can t see past his age, and that he is younger than she is She is 40 he is 32 Neil suffers from PTSD, and there is one particular incident from his past that haunts his dreams In a way, working on this case with a serial killer is his way to redemption, at least that is what he initially thought it was The story starts with the first victim The predator stalks women on online dating sites that fit a specific pattern The murders are piling up as N [...]

    9. Head Start is yet another winner I love Cedar Tree and all the folks living there One of my favorite things about this series is that while each novel is an independent story centered around one couple, you get glimpses of the rest of the gang I love catching up with our past couples and seeing how they are doing And who is having babies As for this book, Neil and Kendra are wonderful together Neil is a true hero, dealing with PTSD as a veteran, as well as being a good, kind and loving man He s [...]

    10. 4.5 starI was pulled right into this story The story has laughs, suspense, pain, murder, and heartbreak If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books s firstSlim To None Cedar Tree Series Book 1 Hundred To One Cedar Tree 2 Against Me Cedar Tree 3 Clean Lines Cedar Tree 4 Upper Hand Cedar Tree 5 Like Arrows Cedar Tree 6 This is Kendra and Neil s story Kendra knows Neil is attracted to her but she is older and thinks he needs someone younger She pushes him away at every oppo [...]

    11. I loved the ending to Freya s Cedar Tree series It was not what I expected but no matter what, I loved it We ve all known for how many books now that Neil had a crush on Kendra but Kendra felt she was too old for him We all thought she was crazy but what could we do Neil was the funny little brother of the team But we didn t know his back story until now We didn t know his comedy was a front to hide the trauma and tragedy of his younger years Did that make me feel any different about him Yes it [...]

    12. 3.5 starsPretty classic Freya Barker and if you love this series I am sure you will enjoy Head Start Neil is the youngest GFI investigator and gets tired of being made to feel that way He has the hots for Kendra who is a few years older and has led Neil on a merry chase for a year because she feels he is too young Neil isn t having any of it when he realizes she is using a dating site And if that s wasn t enough she has attracted a serial killer in the process So of course in true alpha fashion [...]

    13. Another great book by Freya Barker This is the last in this series and we finally get the story of Neil and Kendra Kendra has a lot of hang ups about dating or getting involved with a younger man to the extent that she pushes Neil away constantly and doesn t even give him a chance So when Neil sees an opportunity to insert himself into her life, however briefly, he jumps at the chance Kendra is finally faced with everything that Neil has accomplished and the man that he is, not the man she assum [...]

    14. Another superb book by one of my favourite writers You certainly get plenty for your money with this one Murder, mystery and suspense , a full on romance and a humanitarian story as well All three are blended into this very enjoyable novel and just as one theme is finished the second and third carry on to a very clever conclusion Right up there with her best efforts this is a must for any reader of any one of those genres A definite buy.

    15. I have a love hate relationship with this book I totally loved Neil s story, it was totally his time but I am so damn sad to see the Cedar Tree Series coming to an ends I am so so very intrigued by what Freya has in story for us next.Full Review to come

    17. I want to start by saying again that one of the things I love most about this series is the fact it has mature characters not just in age either That is a rare, hard to find thing in this genre of the book world these days, hopefully that starts to change but I won t hold my breath So this series was refreshing from that alone but this book, finally, finally a book where the h is older than the H Granted it isn t the astronomical 20 year age difference that is the over used in thing in so many b [...]

    18. Holly fudgesticks Head Start, the 7th book in the Cedar Tree series is my first experience with Freya Barker s writing and she has impressed me from the first pages Now I have added 6 new books to my reading list and I cannot wait to get to them.This is Kendra and Neil story And what a story this is.Kendra is a mature 40 year old woman, physiotherapist and the object of Neil s desires for than a year She is funny, smart, caring, and loves to use invented swearing words and in fact likes Neil, i [...]

    19. Last summer I bought a book by Freya Barker at a signing, little did I know that from the first page she would become one of my favorite authors Her Cedar Tree series was like an addiction, I went through the published ones like water until I had to wait for the next one to be written I was heartbroken to learn that Head Start would be the last book in the series, but damn, what a way to end.Neil has been somewhat of an enigma in the series young, quiet, and technical, with a knack for walking i [...]

    20. 5 stars 5 stars 5 stars Holy Tater Tits Kendra ism I don t give out a five star review lightly To earn a five star review, it has to be goooood This one is soooo good This book is number 7 in the Cedar Tree Novel series I have not read the other six, so my tbr pile is about to get markedly larger The writing is so superb, the characters are so well developed and likable, and real, and omg, it was so good to read a great book I also added a few new cuss swear words to my seemingly ever expanding [...]

Kendra Schmitt puts most of her time into the new clinic in Cedar Tree, which is now almost running full time With her schedule a bit predictable, she finally considers a personal life and concedes to a disastrous blind date Always the responsible one in her family, she has avoided any kind of entanglement In particular with a certain young investigator Junior member of the GFI team, Neil James, has seen and experienced than most at his age When his team becomes part of a task force investigat [...]

    22. This is the second book of this series that I have read and I enjoyed both of them I would gladly read others in the series if when I find them As the final book in this series it is a great because it brings in most of the characters from previous books for the grand finale A serial killer is on the loose in the area and he has his sights set on Kendra Schmitt She has kept herself to herself through the years and has managed to avoid succumbing to the overtures of Neil James even though he has [...]

    23. This is the first book that I have read by Freya Baker and I can t believe I waited so long to pick one of her books up She is a truly amazing author and I know that I will be reading everything I can find by her now.Kendra works in the medical field at a new clinic in Cedar Tree She now has time to think about dating and developing a personal life However, she doesn t want to take the same path that others in her family went so she is very particular about who she talks to Neil is a member of G [...]

    24. Another strong good story by Freya Barker, no surprise there The story kept me engaged and wanting to know what is happen through out with absolute zero respect for the next morning yep that s the sign of a good book and very sluggish start to the day LOL The writing as usual good tight and well thought out Only a very few and minor spots along the way did it feel a little trying to hard and forced Really liked some of the character self thought that made me snort, which is a good balance for so [...]

    25. I enjoyed reading this book very much This story covers Kendra age 40yrs, the local physical therapist and is a smart, feisty independent woman and Neil age 32yrs, junior member of GFI with hidden depths and is very interested in Kendra There is drama, intrigue, suspense, humor, a wonderful dog, murder, a predator that is stalking women on online dating sites and romance with a HEA The characters are well developed with realistic flaws and emotional problems The story line is well written with s [...]

    26. i have read this whole series and did not think it could get any better, but with Neil and Kendra it did Neil has wanted to be in her life for over a year and has slowly wedged his way in, Kendra is older than Neil and thought the age difference was bad because of her mothers MILF status When Kendra is targeted Neil will stop at nothing to protect what is his, when she willingly gives herself up he has to try to get his Kendra back.

    27. another great read by Freya i have loved every single book in the cedar tree series, they draw you right in from the beginning and i dont want to put it down til i have read every single word I love these books as i can read the whole series over and over again like ive never read it before i cant wait for her next book come out now

    28. Another great read and I love snippets of previous characters in this crew The intensity btwn Kendra and Neil was on the tame side for me but I still enjoyed it 4 solid stars

    29. A fast paced chilling story that will grab you right from the start and stay with you long after the last word An emotionally captivating story that was truly exceptional I knew there was so much to Neil that what had been revealed in the previous books, but obviously not the depth of his tortured soul that he has hidden from everyone Everyone s always making reference to his age or how young he seems that most don t see the real man underneath, including Kendra When Kendra unknowingly catches [...]

    30. The last adventure of the Cedar Tree series is one to remember I would say that it goes out with a bang Neil works for GFI, an investigative company He is the youngest of the team but has seen his fair share of drama, having been in the army He is quite the computer expert His surfer looks quite often gives the wrong impression of his true personality Kendra is a Physiotherapist She is single and likes her independence She has been fending off Neil s advances for the past year She likes him but [...]
