This was a super sweet romance. It didn't have drama or angst, it was just a heart warming and tear inducing read. This is perfect for a light hearted reading day when you just want to fall in love. I enjoyed the humorous scenes throughout the book as well as the fantastic secondary characters supporting the story who you want to have their own story.
