Dylan is a thirtysome college professor living in small town America. He's content with his dull, predictable life and finds comfort and safety in the routine. Part of that routine is collecting his two 'aunts' from the nursing home and bringing them to his house for tea and cake. The story begins on one such afternoon where aunts Bess and Mitzi are doing their usual sly prodding and trying to fix Dylan up with one of the neighbourhood women, Josie. Little do they know that Dylan is already in a ...more

I have heard only good things about this one and just had to read it - I was not disappointed. This is a short read so expect to read it in one go and wanting more.

Dylan - teacher, nice guys and the current target of his Great- Aunts meddling is this wonderful creation that Clare London has introduced me to. He is just the typical guy next door who is comfortable in his surroundings, appreciates the small things in life, never forgetful of his manners and yet still not the perfect neighbour.

I have to say what a hoot the two aunts were. They were totally on to him from the very beginning and I loved it. I did feel like the story was too short and that there was so much that was left out. But all in all a really cute story.
A short and very sweet read.
It turns out it was pretty 'meh' from beginning to end. But it wasn't a bad or a completely waste of time. Not at all. To read if you have little free time, it's very short.
I enjoyed this but I wish that we could have gotten into Neal's head so I could understand why he decided on the course of action he did.

If this had been a longer story I think I could have really loved it but because of the shorter page count there was a too much jumping around and things felt a little too spotty.

Still great characters and really interesting premise.
I felt Dylan's frustration and desperation. He couldn't or wouldn't change because his life was set in stones. And the plot is rather simple and empty. But at list the ending is sweet and happy.
Dylan and Neal been seeing each other every often, they think no ones on to them but they in for a suprise.

Short, sweet, and really cute. Reminds me of what whirlwind romance could be...
