When the fun-loving and spontaneous artist Willow West meets buttoned-up, retired English teacher George Emerson, it’s not exactly love at first sight. Though she does find the obsessive-compulsive man intriguing. Making it her mission to get him to loosen up and embrace life, she embarks on what seems like a lost cause–and finds herself falling for him in the process.
A confirmed bachelor, George vacillates between irritation and attraction whenever Willow is around–which to him seems like all too often. He’s not interested in expanding his horizons or making new friends; it just hurts too much when you lose them.
But as the summer progresses, George feels his defenses crumbling. The question is, will his change of heart be too late for Willow?
With her signature heart and touches of humor, fan favorite Melody Carlson pens a story of two delightfully eccentric characters who get a second chance at life and love.
This quirky romance, is not really a romance as much as a tale of two people falling in love despite the determination of one to not go there.
I loved that this story was not about young people, but explored life and what it could be between two people with totally different lifestyles. I enjoyed the storyline with the family dynamics.
Don’t read this book if you are just looking for a cute story with no depth. This story hides the depth between still surfaces. I loved it!
I obtained this book from the publisher and NetGalley. My opinions contained herein are my own.
