5 Stars!



Release Date: February 5, 2019

Publisher: Berkeley


A romance bookstore owner finds her own happily ever after with a single dad in a new romance series from the New York Times bestselling author of Every Dog Has His Day.

Ryder Copeland is an accomplished architect and one heck of a father…not to mention tall and sexy. He’s everything a hero should be, and Lord knows, Maisy Kelly has read enough of her great-aunt Eloise’s romance novels to recognize one when she sees one. But like all fairy tales, Maisy can’t help but wonder if this Prince Charming is too good to be true…

Ryder is drawn to the shy, curly haired professor who hires him to convert the Victorian house she’s inherited from her aunt into a romance bookstore. Attracted to a woman for the first time since his divorce, Ryder finds himself wishing for a future with Maisy that he knows is impossible. Ryder has never wavered from his plan to leave the small town of Fairdale, North Carolina, so he can give his daughter the life she deserves. But suddenly he’s not so sure. And the closer he gets to Maisy, the harder it’s going to be to walk away…


Okay, first of all we have an English professor who wants to turn an old Victorian house into a romance bookstore. I feel like that is enough to sell this book. Then we have a single dad who looks like one of the cover models for a cowboy romance novel. If that’s not enough, you have great female friendships and a rescue kitten.This book was so much fun to read. I love the relationships in this book, the romance is adorable, and all the romance book references are just the cherry on top. I would definitely recommend this to romance readers everywhere!!




***Thank you so much to Berkeley and First to Read for the chance to read this early by giving me an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review!***
