Why You Should Read It

Read this book if:

  • you’re looking for a simple, clean feel-good story with uncomplicated characters
  • you like Harlequin-style romance novels where you know the moment a brooding, male character is introduced that he will be the love interest and that he’ll get the girl
  • you’re mad at the results of the recent presidential elections but want an underdog candidate that you can root for
  • you want to support a self-published author right in time for the small-business weekend

My Rating

I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars for these reasons:

-.5 star because the book was a little short (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since it means I wanted more of these characters)

-1 star because I wish there was a little more a climatic end.
