Yikes. What happened to this book? I was so thrilled when I saw the cover because I like interracial romance. I expected a super sweet romantic story, but I was bored with this by 50% I could barely finish it up.

Sasha returns to her hometown to open a bakery. She hires the daughter of the local dentist. They both have relationship issues. She got divorced from a famous country singer. He got divorced from his baby mama. Now they are in the same town and start spending time together. I didn’t

I received an advance copy from the publisher via Netgalley for review purposes. This in no way influences my review; all words, thoughts, and options are my own.

Fun, quick read! I read this as part of the 2019 PopSugar Reading Challenge, “ a book with salty, sweet, bitter, or spicy in the title.”

It was a good book up until the last few chapters and then it was just rushed.

WICKHAM FALLS

As usual I enjoyed my journey to Wickham Falls . Sasha and Dwight each found something they didn't know they were looking for or needed. Kiera was a delight.

New bakery owner Sasha Manning was totally not expecting that the teenager she hired would have such an attractive father. Now that she is back home after being away for years Sasha is still dealing with feelings from falling for a man who seemed too good to be true. Divorced single dad Dwight Adams will have to prove to Sasha that he is the real deal and he will also have to learn to trust someone with his heart along the way.

I love Rochelle Alers work. This cover and title sounded so promising. But, Dwight and Sasha's romance lacked chemistry. I think it was because they were so doubtful the entire way through. One minute they wanted to be just friends and the next more. Then, they seemed to jump into love. I will continue to read more from this author.
Thank you, #Netgalley.

I really wanted to like this story, but the execution fell short. Sasha and Dwight had so much mistrust from their previous relationships that it kept interfering with their developing one and by the time the both did something about it...well, the ending was really rushed.

I received an advance reader copy from Netgalley/Harlequin and this is my honest review.

Nice sweet story. I read this during a rainy weekend, relaxing and sipping tea. This was a perfect pairing. Slow to start but worth it to continue.

Thanks NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
