I absolutely adored this book! The romance is not only entertaining, but it’s perfectly paced and had me laughing and smiling the entire time. I loved Franny. I loved Mitch. I loved the relationships Franny develops throughout the book.
Franny is the most hilarious character I have read in a long time. She is constantly getting into scrapes because of her clumsiness or lack of spatial awareness. Awful things happen one after the other after the other, and it felt perfectly natural for the character to keep finding herself in an awkward situation.
I enjoyed the themes of family and finding your own self-confidence and self-worth. The characters and events fit perfectly with those themes, and I especially enjoyed watching Franny grow as a character. Ten out of ten would read this book again.
My rating: 5+ stars
The man stretches and yanks on a shutter. The flex of muscles draws my gaze downwards towards a well-rounded derriere encased in denim.
Wait a minute, I recognize that butt. Well, what I mean is, I ogled that butt in my bakery a week ago. My gaze skyrockets back up. Yup, the chestnut brown hair teasing the nape of his neck is the same. That’s Mitch on that ladder.
Socially awkward and prone to accidents, Franny Dawson has a brand-new project: herself. Owning the local bakery, The Sweet Spot, has taken all her time and energy and she’s neglected the social aspects of her life. The small lakeside town of Granite Cove, New Hampshire is full of quirky residents eager to help and hinder her new plan.
Mitch Atwater, an award-winning director, returns to town. He has an agenda of his own and is wreaking havoc with her goals and her heart.
Can Franny outwit her nemesis, overcome her perfect sister’s surprise return, and escape the cocoon of her own insecurities to take a chance on love and get her very own happily ever after?
