really cute 2.
55 stars rated pg very mild pg13The cover is adorable and it fits the story perfectly I love the Gulf Coast setting, one of my favorite places in this world The characters in this book were lovely, especially the little girls There was a good faith thread throughout and some great messages Lovely romance and some humor So much about this cute book that I could have loved, BUT The contrived or first book type writing style and major lack of attention to making all the details fit drove me bonkers Beyond bonkers There were parts that were just odd or mildly jarring, I kept shaking my head and thinking huh, that doesn t make sense And don t get me started on the spelling editing issues This story had such potential, but it just fell short for me Because of the cute girls and the good faith message, I m giving it 3 stars but that s really being generous I have friends who have enjoyed this author s other books, so I suppose I ll try another I have Firefly Summer in my kindle it looks like it could be good, but I m a bit hesitant now.
Cute premise to the book Widower and vet Eric Wilson s three daughters and his momma decide that he has grieved his wife long enough, so they make a call to the local paper to place an ad for a wife If the book was just about all the single read desperate women that flood his vet s office some without a pet in sight it would not have been as enjoyable Luckily for the reader, that is NOT what this book is about Instead, the good doctor is drawn to the woman who takes the classified ad and sparks the newspaper article about his daughters matchmaking attempts From that point on, it is your typical boy meets girl, boy and girl like each other but don t know how to express their feelings to each other, something happens and they come to their senses before riding off into the sunset love story Brain candy, but enjoyable.
This was a cute story I loved the three little girls The romance moved way to fast, as is common for these short stories But the writing was good I will definitely check out of Ms Y Barbo s books.
