I loved the quirky older ladies in this book who are meddling in their grown grandchildren’s lives so they end up happy. I love how that provided a feeling of a small town where everyone knows everyone.
Kyra Brims and Mike Haddican have a past, they were each other’s first loves, and honestly they never fell out of love. A huge misunderstanding in their youth set them on different paths, and I think this allowed them to grow and become strong characters so that when they do get together now, they know how to compromise and really make their love last a lifetime.
There is some outside conflict, but a lot of the conflicts are centered around their past, and finding a way back to each other. I love second chance romances, and this one has all the elements that I love. Two characters that never stopped loving each other, and despite all the time that has passed still can’t keep their hands off of each other.
I definitely recommend this story, it’s loosely connected to another series from the author since it takes place in the same small town, but is easily read without having read that series. I know that I look forward to coming back to Alden in the future.
