Note: Thank you to the author, Fiona West, and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest thoughts 😄
I think I enjoyed Must Be A Mistake more than Could Be Something Good! Honestly, I think it was the 'Falling for your best friend's brother' trope that did it for me. I've always loved that trope so much (thus an explanation for my love for the Princess Diaries books) and this book handled it so well, I can'

Ummm..😍Hello Kyle Durand!.
Kyle has been ignoring his feelings for Ainsley for years and decides it’s finally time to act. Ainsley is the town go to and when she finds out Kyle is helping with the Habitat for Humanity build she wants to believe, no hopes he is there because of her. Will this turn out for the best or be just another mistake?.
First we had Daniel and Winnie, now we have Kyle and Ainsle

***I received an ARC from Fiona West for an honest review****
Eekkk!! I literally have no words!!! I thought Daniel and Winnie's story was amazing, but Kyle and Ainsley story was brilliant! I absolutely loved it and it's one of my favorite 2020 reads! I adored Kyle and really liked how he isn't your "normal" perfect character. I loved getting to know him and his neurodivertity. He was super sweet, shy, protective, and caring and made my heart so happy. Ainsley was fierce and brave, and she wasn't

How did Fiona West write such a brilliant book!? I loved Daniel and Winnie, but I was always rooting for Kyle and Ainsley and holy smokes. Also, the writing and dialogue in this book. I just can't.

A proper, clearer review coming when my brain isn't mush from all the feels.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The second book in the Timber Falls series is here and it did not disappoint! After being introduced the town and some of the characters in the first book, the reader is once again taken back to Timber Falls to witness another adorable romance.

If you read the first book, the two main characters should be rather familiar to you. Kyle Durand, Daniel’s brother, and Ainsley Buchanan, Daniel’s best friend and Winnie’s roommate, take cen

“It felt much more crucial that he kiss her again.”

Thank you to the author, Fiona West for providing me an advance reader copy of this book after enjoying the first in the series, Could Be Something Good and really enjoying it.

I loved getting to be thrown right back into the familiarity of the characters from the first title, but expanding on another couple set - Kyle and Ainsley.

General info

This is Ainsley and Kyle's love story. They have known each other for ages and they have both held crushes toward the other. Neither has shown their feelings to the other. Suddenly, a child mentions that Ainsley is getting married and Kyle really has to act.

Things I liked

This book is even the better than the first book in the series. I like Kyle and Ainsley more as characters and their story is so easy and fun to follow.

4,5 Stars!!!

Ainsley and Kyle have known each other for years, but have never had the courage to admit their feelings for one another. But everything changes when Kyle finds out that Ainsley may be engaged, is he too late?

We’re back, for the second time, to the small town of Timber Falls, with all its charm and sense of community. This couple shows us the importance of respect and affection, mainly because Kyle is in the spectrum. Fiona works this very well, helping us to understand in a fantasti

Must Be a Mistake is the second book in the small-town Timber Falls series. After reading the fourth book my interest was caught by the series and I had to go and read the rest of the series. The books can be read as standalones but once you start reading one of them, you will want to read them all so might as well start at the beginning. Timber Falls is a charming small town with all the small-town gossip, busybodies, and warm, loving families. I fell in love with the town and all the character ...more

This was a sweet romance between Kyle, a doctor in the small town of Timber Falls and Ainsley, the best friend of Kyle’s younger brother. Kyle is on the autism spectrum and has difficulty expressing his emotions, but he has decided that it is time that he let Ainsley know how he feels.

The portrayals of the two main characters was so very sweet and I really enjoyed their romance.

I voluntarily reviewed a review copy of this book that I received from the author; however, the opinions are my own and

Kyle is a very special hero. I’d even go so far to say that he’s unlike any leading character I’ve read before. I spent most of this book just wanting to hug him tight and tell him that everything was going to be alright. Even though I know it’s the exact wrong thing for him, it’s still what I wanted to do. I was a little more hit and miss in my reactions with Ainsley. There were times I loved her and wanted to hug the stuffing out of her. And then there were the times I wanted to smack some sen ...more

Funny but sad

I loved Kyle and I appreciated the nod to autism as I have relatives on the spectrum. But the part about racism made me sad. There is so much of it going on today that it was a little hard to face in what was supposed to be a rom com.
Overall, I did enjoy it and would recommend it.

Great story

I enjoyed Kyle and Ainsley's story. Having not-so-perfect characters added a lot of interest. It was fun watching them dance around each other and then figure things out. I loved the epic proposal and the great ending.

Great series

We are not all the same and should never be lumped together. Individuality is what makes the world go round and should be embraced by everyone.

This was a super quick read. Helped me with my major book slump I'm having. The characters had me laughing out loud, and made my heart strings tug from the cuteness.

Ainsley's fear of rejection and unworthiness were not thoroughly explained enough, so I didn't understand her logic into establishing a relationship with Kyle.

Overall the characters were one dimensional, but I enjoyed this book! So, I recommend it for an easy, light read.

Must be a mistake is exactly what i thought about this book .
So What was wrong with this book ,you may ask ???
_First zero chemistry
_Bad representation of autism
_Lack of plot
_and i felt like every character got on my nerves
I’m conflicted about rating this book, as it has conflicting characteristics. This was a nice blend of typical sweet rom-com and enough dashes of atypical flavor to keep it from blending in with the crowd.

It’s a pretty solid 3.5 stars, rounded down to 3 for the following reasons.

It has several things going for it, but some weak points as well. And sometimes its strengths are simultaneously its weaknesses.

Bonus points for unusual location of semi-rural, small town north-central Oregon. Yay!

This book was one I was excited to read because of the Autism representation and I liked that the author didn't make it be a big deal and focused on the romance and other conflicts in the story, however, there are moments where it felt more like the person who had the Autism was making fun of neurotypical without any context. Other than that, there are trigger warnings for racial discrimination (particularly with Somalian people)a. , bullying, and a ton of miscommunication (although because of t ...more

I'm a sucker for an "I've been in love you for years and you didn't know it" story. It's almost the only romance trope I like. It's also very historical-fiction and I hate historical-fiction.

This book has Kyle, a doctor diagnosed with ASD, in love with Ainsley for around 11 years. She also loves him but they're both clueless.
I gotta say, the ASD representation here is interesting. It's just that the author declared that Kyle has ASD in the middle of some random prose. I felt it could've be

A sweet and heartfelt small-town love story between a school teacher and an autistic doctor. There's a softness to this book that I completely adored.

So this was the next relationship that I needed to see from this series! I was so happy to read about another romance novel that featured someone who had autism. Not only did he have Autism he also had been in love with sis for years. Finally he took the plunge to go for her after his nephew mistakenly said that she was going to get married. There were a bunch of misunderstandings unfortunately because she could've sworn he didn't like her and he had autism. But, as with all good
