For Rosemary Reynolds, life in tiny Morning Glory, Mississippi, is just like the fabric store she runs: it seems she's always waiting around for someone else to make the first stitch. Then a dear childhood friend passes away, leaving behind a gift that sends Rosemary on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Despite her mother's protests, Rosemary heads to New York City for a stay in her cousin's trendy SoHo loft. On her first day in town, a wrong turn leads her to Little Italy...and into the arms of handsome, outgoing Sal Genovese. Sal's mother wants him to marry a longtime family friend, but to him, Rosemary is a breath of fresh country air, and he's happy to show her a good time. Soon, Rosemary is swept up in a world she thought only existed in movies. To turn a two-week fling into a forever thing, she and Sal will have to make every moment count.

If you love a good romance, like a really good reader/characterization and appreciate true Southerners, you will adore this book. I couldn't stop listening but now I am so sad I finished it! When is the next one out?????
Bravo to the narrator who made this whole story work so well! This is not a deep, thought provoking novel. However, I give it 5 stars because it is exactly what it's supposed to be. A charming story with like able characters and a plot line that flows and doesn't leave one confused about what's happening. This is a feel good story that has dialogue that made me chuckle and moments that made me tear up.
Super enjoyable listen!
I loved this book so much that even though it's on Kindle Unlimited for both Kindle and Audible I felt it necessary to purchase it to have forever. This story was funny, emotional and charming. I really have to give my compliments to the narrator because she brought to life all the characters, and did a fantastic job with the accents. They were believable and not over the top as some narrators I've heard.
I love the premise for this series and felt that Rosemary and Sal were great characters to start it out. Rosemary is sweet but lives a fairly sheltered life under her mothers overprotective thumb. Sal is floundering through life a bit, still reeling from a heartbreak, unfocused and tempted to give in to the easy route his mother has planned for his life. Together, they help each other learn to live.
While I'm more a fan of "slow burn" romances, this insta-love romance reeled me in and I'm already listening to it a second time. It was somewhat predictable, but that didn't impact my enjoyment one bit.
As a Southern girl, I must say that this narrator was excellent ! Her performance made the story come alive. Sweet story with likeable characters. Highly recommended!
