I liked this book, especially for its being clean. The main couple, Sam and Lily were extremely likeable. I loved the idea of the small town setting. The descriptions worked well and the personalities of the sub-characters leaped off the page. The plot of the book is perhaps very simple, yet for me it worked.

Not my cup of tea

I tried to get into this but it just didn't work. Couldn't get into the story and felt disconnected from the characters.

This was a fun enjoyable read. There were a few odd quirks of grammar which threw me out of the story a couple of times but it was an author I'd happily read more from.
