Really cute, really sweet, lovely book. Mostly because I loved the heroine and her beautifully understated conflict. She's not your usual tortured, grieving heroine, but there's a thread of unhappiness through her on-the-surface sparkly outlook on life. The hero I had less of an understanding of -- he was heroic, but personally I'd have liked more insight into him.

*spoiler ahead*

My only quibble was with the ending -- why a marriage proposal? Unlike some Sweets where the sex scene ends at the door -- this one didn't even have one. They'd never had sex and yet were getting married? I know it does happen, but not very often in this day and age.

So apart from that little eye-rolling moment at the end, I really enjoyed this book.
