Marybeth Lawson has the life she's always wanted. And it all revolves around her cozy bed-and-breakfast. As busy as it keeps her, there is no room for romance, which is fine with her.

This book was not your typical romance novel. I actually had part of the "surprise" figured out almost from the beginning, but there was still a shocking twist that I didn't expect. There was more of an emphasis on the story line instead of the romance itself, which was a nice change from "traditional" romance novels.

This story is different, but like all of Quinn's stories a great read. There's a lot of plot here with twists and turns you're not expecting. Also a different style using letters. I don't want to say to much because it's full of surprises and I don't want to give it away. Definitely a must read.
