The premise of the story was very good and it was quite entertaining, but the middle was bogged down in too many superfluous activities that didn't add much to the story. It dragged on a bit.
The heroine's sister asked her to go to Spain to decorate the house rented by her fiance. While she was there, she fell in love with the hero who actually owned the house. Although a bit of drama, jealousy and pettiness ensued eventually the heroine and hero sorted it out. It was pretty cute but it felt slow to me.
