Readers new to the Edilean series will fall in love with the small-town atmosphere, and longtime fans will enjoy revisiting familiar faces. While the book has plenty of charm and strong supporting characters, Deveraux misses the mark with her heroine. Sara’s emotional fragility, antiquated mannerisms and old-fashioned vocabulary seem better suited to a Victorian lady than a modern 26-year-old. Sara and Mike’s relationship, however, is sexy and sweet, as they navigate
their unexpected attraction. This is a fun, if imperfect, read.
