Terri's Thoughts

I received this book as part of a two for one package in a giveaway on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.

This was a cute love story that tended to follow the typical formula.  Two people meet who are working together and have an instant attraction but fight off their feelings due to their inner ghosts that they are both carrying with them.  Both Samantha and George have lost someone they loved in the past and are unwilling to open their hearts to new possibilities even with their growing feelings for each other.

The part that I enjoyed was that this took place in London Ontario and it is somewhat close to home.  I enjoy stories that feature Canadian cities and Canadian authors as I feel I can identify more with them.  I do have to raise an eyebrow though at the mention of London Ontario being a large city.  Although I have not been there I am pretty sure it is not considered a large city by most standards.  I do think however it was to put things in perspective of the small town that George came from.

While the story did not particularly wow me I did enjoy the interlude from the daily grind that it provided me.  It was a pleasant surprise to receive this story.

About the Author

Born and raised on the outskirts of Toronto, Ontario Amy fled the big city to settle down with the country boy of her dreams. When she's not furiously typing away at her computer, she's a mom to three wonderful children, who have given her another job as a taxi driver.

A voracious reader, she was given her first romance novel by her grandmother who shared her penchant for a hot romance. From that moment, Amy was hooked by the magical worlds, handsome heroes and sigh worthy romances contained in the pages and she knew what she wanted to be when she grew up.

Life got in the way, and after the birth of her second child, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a romance author.
