A Sweet Summer Read

I usually chose more complex books. I decided that the world is complicated plentiful. I am writing this as Covid-19 is on the rise and the US has had enough of police brutality against the black community. During the day, I am supporting #BLM by writing to the officials who can make the transformations that should have been brought about since infinitely. At night I must unplug and listen to an uncomplicated chick lite book. This story was soft and gentle. It was just what I needed—A happy ending. 😌

Southern Women's Fiction at its very best!

Easy to listen for hours, with beautiful flowing words and descriptive language, I could picture myself in the farms of North Carolina or city streets of Manhattan. It has just enough drama to keep the book interesting and enough happiness to make you smile for days. I highly recommend this book!

Love Southern Fiction

I enjoyed this book and understand everything she is talking about. I live only about 30 minutes from Kinston so, all the restaurants, etc are familiar. I did however, get really tired of all the comparisons. Traveling with a tiny baby is like clearing brush for a deer stand, his hair was whiter than the baby lambs’s on the farm, it was a perfect moment like finishing a lego pirate ship, ... even at such a young age you and Alex had taken to one another like crabs to sand. A few of such makes a book fun but, there were just too many.

The novel version of one of my former middle-schoolers papers just after I taught working figurative language into writing.

This is the single-most poorly written novel I’ve ever read. I don’t think there were two consecutive sentences that didn’t contain a goofy simile.
