A fun light romance feel good story with a bookstore and a cafe in a small town. – what more can you ask? Drink your coffee and read a book?
There was a nice flowing style and just for a change, a Goth heroine with various piercings and tattoos.
She is tall and curvy curly with dark hair versus straight fair hair which trumps small and petite, in the story.
This is the first in a series of 5 books about the characters in the town.
There is one small wrinkle that – although it set the story line – I found unrealistic. The hip replacement element.
Hip replacements are not considered serious surgery. There are no such things as Nursing/Convalescent Homes these days after hospital – it is considered much better to go home(after around 4 days) as you recover better in familiar surroundings – with familiar germs! And a hip replacement is easy to recover from in that the physio is sit down and get up and walk. Repeat. Various leg lifting exercises of course. I speak as someone who has had 3.5 (and counting) knee replacements and am reliably told they are more difficult to recover from. Yet within 3 months I was walking well – and 64 is young for a hip replacement.
