So. I've never read "inspirational" fiction before, as my library classified it. There was a lot of Jesus talk. Not every page, but enough to make a striking difference between every other novel I've ever read. This premise is kind of cute; "magic" or "fate" (really a Higher power) bringing together two lonely hearts that belong with each other. I liked the whimsical characters that are orchestrating everything, but their appearances are rare and the two leads were just milquetoast. Simon was more appealing to me, even though he was one-dimensional and didn't seem like an actual human being.

Basically it reads like one of those Lifetime or Hallmark Christmas movies only less annoying and more boring. Very festive though, lovely old-fashioned shopping street, very cozy.
