But the minute he thinks he's finally ready to leave he meets the town's beautiful new librarian, and his plan starts to falter...
The instant I saw the cover for this one I was intrigued, especially when I saw that Ms. Floyd was at the helm, I have always found her novels to be quite enjoyable literary escapes for me, and I am happy to say that this one was nothing short of amazing!! I was barely a chapter into it when I felt myself being drawn into these endearing characters lives, and from that point on I knew there was no way I was putting this read down until they found they happily ever after... which ultimately lead to me have a little late night reading fest, and boy oh boy was it worth the lost hours of sleep!!! I am a sucker for a well written small town romance story equipped with charming characters that draw you in and make you feel right at home, and a story line that you can't help but get wrapped up in, and I am happy to report this book definitely had all of that and then some!
I highly recommend you acquaint yourself with the residents of Sunnyside, their small town hospitality will warm your heart, make you smile and make you never want to leave!
