  • Lovely second chance romance at a quirky inn

    Sometimes you read a book that is just so perfect for the reading mood that you are in. For me, this book struck all the right notes, a lovely, hopeful romance with small-town quirkiness and charm to start my 2020 reading off right! I'm a fan of Jenny Holiday's anyway but this book is definitely at the top of my favorites list. Sawyer was the very definition of a caretaker alpha, my favorite kind of hero. Strong, protective (sometimes too much so), caring, compassionate, and willing to sacrifice anything to take care of the people he loves. Eve is kind, smart, open, and a bit too wedded to her current life plan to see what's in front of her but she grows and changes of the course of the book and gains the power to listen to and articulate her true wants. The basic plot is that Eve's beloved aunt has passed away recently and left Eve her quirky, rather run down inn in a small town on Lake Huron, a few hours from Toronto. Eve has a load of student debt and is angling for a promotion to a collections specialist in her library system in Toronto, so she plans to sell the inn quickly and get out of the small town where she spent her summers as a child, and where her first love, Sawyer, now the town police chief, broke her heart at age 18. Her bad memories have overwhelmed and buried all of the good ones to the point where she hasn't been back for 10 yrs. The only problem is that Lucille's will specifies that Eve must live in the inn for a year before she can sell it. Over the course of the year, she is slowly reabsorbed into the town's rhythms and rediscovers her strong feelings for Sawyer as well as making new friends and learning to communicate what she wants. Although Eve was in her late 20's, this almost felt like a coming of age story, not in the sense that Eve acts immaturely (she doesn't) but in the sense that although she's already accomplished a lot professionally, she still has a lot of personal growing to do. There is (of course) a set up for the next few books, presumably with Sawyer's close friends as heroes, and I will be looking forward to all of them. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book from Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
