Paige discovers, though, that Mitzi’s last wishes include a lot of meddling in her love life. From the grave, and with the help of some friends, Mitzi has set out to make sure Paige and Bella Port’s most eligible bachelor, Sam Kennedy, find true love together. What Mitzi didn’t foresee is the firestorm and gossip she created that paints Paige as a swindler and liar, leaving Sam to wonder about the grown woman Paige has become. It doesn’t help when Paige fires him after their first meeting. But as friendship blossoms between Paige and Sam, they find each other hard to resist.
Was Mitzi right about the two of them? Will Paige finally have her turn?
Sometimes when I read a book, I just know I'm going to use the word "love" too much when writing a review. It's inevitable. So, this is the forewarning for that type of review.
I was immersed in Paige's world- her struggles and her triumphs. She leaves home a young and insecure girl but returns a woman with more confidence and determination. I loved seeing Paige overcome the bitter memories and spread her wings instead. She returned angry for kind and was willing to forgive. I loved Paige. And I wanted to be Paige. Because hello? She owns a bookstore! What a fun dream job! Well, at least I think so.
I was hit by emotion more than once over Paige's Aunt Mitzi. Her story and her love for Paige really tugged at my heartstrings. Sam was more of the love, hate, love kind. It made for some fun situations!
Ooh, and the cover! I love it! This one is probably one of my favorite Jennifer Peel book covers. And one more side note- my name appears in this book! That surely made me smile! I hardly ever see my name in a book because of the spelling. Fun!
I have never met a Jennifer Peel book I didn't like. Her writing just settles in my mind and heart and fills me up with yummy. LOVE.
