  • I really enjoyed this opposites-attract romance

    In this book we meet the unreserved Amy, who moves from her small home town to Toronto and revels in the independence. Through her new roommate, she befriends several other young women who meet regularly at a local cider bar. These friends encourage Amy to be her best self, to take chances, and to stand up for herself. Amy's next-door neighbor, Victor, is a taciturn recluse who is determined to live a safe, small life. Unfortunately for his plans, he simply cannot resist his neighbor's charms. I enjoyed this slow, friendship-based romance, though I missed the intensity found in the author's earlier works. Amy is a delightful character, and Victor brings tremendous depth to the familiar grumpy hero stereotype. I loved meeting the Amy's new friends and am already looking forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun Read, Cute Romance, Awsome Food

    I received an ARC of this book to read through a review crew. All opinions are my own. Her Big City Neighbour is the first book in Jackie Lau’s delightful new series Cider Bar Series. As a polka dot, ladybug, unicorn mug loving person who was born in Sudbury and who has a large number of family members who are engineers from Queens University, I felt a bit seen while reading this book. Amy Sharpe has inherited a house in downtown Toronto from her great-aunt, and this inheritance has allowed her to figure out what she wants from her life and escape from the demands of family in her small northern Ontario hometown that were beginning to make her feel smothered. To cope with the immense grief he felt after his brother died, Victor Choi has edited his life to things he can control. Victor goes to work, comes home, occasionally meets an old friend for a drink and talks to his family on the phone. So when the bubbly woman next door attempts to be friendly, his walls go up, but as time passes, things about her that he found annoying no longer do, and when they begin a friendship, and that friendship becomes something more, it terrifies him. I enjoyed reading this book very much and recommend it not only for the story but for the food. I can’t wait for my next trip to Toronto to try out some of the wonderful food mentioned in the book. Low Angst, Medium Steam. Publishing Date: September 8, 2020. #HerBigCityNeighbour #JackieLau #CanadianRomance #bookstagram #bookstagramer #ContemporaryRomance #IndieBooks

  • Promising start to series

    Wasn't as thrilled with this one as her previous books, probably because I'm not a big fan of grumpy heros. Amy was an absolute delight and I loved her showdown with her family. I thought Lau did a great job of capturing the move from a small, restricted place to the cornucopia that is Toronto. (And having lived in the Annex close to where Victor and Amy lived, I did love seeing that area being celebrated.) Happy I bought it and read it though and look forward to the rest of the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I loved this!

    A cute and fun romance. Amy, with her polka-dot dresses, small-town charm, love of new foods, and ladybugs, stole my heart. I also love a grumpy man who looks good without his shirt. :) The two together made for a great smoldering romance. I’m looking forward to reading more of this series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heartfelt

    Loved this book, read it in one sitting. Beautiful writing style. Descriptive without being an information dump. Loved the characters, especially Amy's new found strength and the struggle she goes through to find herself. Also make sure you have snacks on hand because this book made me hungry! So good, can't wait to read the next one in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
