This was a wonderful quick read that had me wanting to travel to the mountains of Virginia to stay at the inn Stella has inherited. The author does an amazing job of developing the characters. You feel like you know each one well and develop strong feelings about each one. There is romance, but it wasn’t over the top and syrupy. It was enough to have me hope that there really are dedicated and caring men out in the world.
There were lots of twists and turns as you travel with Stella from New York to Hope Spring, Virginia. She develops relationships along the way and discovers a family she never knew she had. This is a story of love, loss, family dynamics, relationships, self discovery, and drama. Oh my goodness, is there drama! You will be sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. And when you’ve finished the last word and closed the book, you’ll be ready for the next adventure in the series. Can’t wait to read the second book!
