This is the first book that I have read by authors Ivy Penn and Hope Kingston, and I absolutely loved it. The romance genre is a new genre to me, but I absolutely loved how in depth the characters were with each other and how much they fought against the romance to begin with. I never used to like romance because I always felt the story was the same each time, but this book really had twists and turns that I was not expecting. I do not want to give too much away, but I will say that a twist with the main character’s child is involved, which made it much more fun to read.
I really loved the details that were provided of the town. I could really develop a picture in my head of where every place being discussed was located. It also reminded me of home because it was a smaller town with a well-known diner in it. I could really relate to that, and it made the story even more interesting.
I enjoyed how the characters actually acted liked they could be friends with us in real life because they had jobs just like us, whether that is being a teacher or working at the diner. I love a good book where I can imagine being friends with the main characters. Heck, even the side characters. I would love to be friends with Edith’s family. They all seem to be really great to each other and to the town.
Overall, I give this book a 5/5 star rating and would highly recommend anyone who is into romance read this book. It is a very sweet story with a really good twist in it.
I received an ARC for an honest review. This is my honest review.
