The fine line between BFF and happily-ever-after…

Tucker Llewellyn and Libby Worth—strictly platonic!—realize they’re each at a crossroads. Tucker is successful, but he wants a wife and kids: the whole package. Libby knows that small-town life has her set in her ways; the tearoom owner needs to get out more.

So they form a pact: Libby will play matchmaker and Tucker will lead her on the adventure she desperately needs. But the electricity Libby feels when they shake on it should be a warning sign. Soon the matchmaking mishaps pile up, and a personal crisis tests Libby’s limits. Will Tucker be there for her as a best friend…or something more?

This book has the always fun friends to lovers troupe going on!  Tucker and Libby have known each other from birth.  They have always been part of each other's lives.  Best friends!  But, one of these best friends has a secret that hasn't been shared.

While Tucker and Libby are firmly in the friend zone, little things keep popping up for each of them.  An awareness, a little spark.  They push it aside, until they can't because that little spark refuses to go away.  Still, it's a gentle, slow road for these two finding their way to more than friends.  Meanwhile, you can sit back and relax as you are taken on some fun adventures and many scenes with family and friends that create a feeling of community and home.

My favorite part was when Libby calls Tucker.  She's in a bad place and doesn't say anything when he picks up.  His answer?  "Oh, hi.  I'll be right there."  That right there is friendship.  And that right there?  That's love.

I enjoyed this book although there were some slow parts.  The characters were great and the ending was perfect.

Content:  talk about depression and anxiety disorders, kissing, mild peril.

About the Author

Liz Flaherty was a little nervous about retiring from her day job, but making quilts, more family time, traveling at the mere mention of “why don’t we go...” and becoming a Harlequin Heartwarming author have made the past years more fun and exciting than she could ever have imagined.
