description

Gertrude “Trudy” Brown returns home to take care and sell off the rundown store her late Aunt Gertrude left her. While in town she meets Christopher “Kit” Darlington, a professor of American Studies at Cambridge and a man searching for an elusive manuscript that may be hidden in Trudy's shop.

As these two seemingly very different people spend the Fall days together, cleaning out Trudy’s bookshop, a friendship and feelings soon develop.

This one was pretty middle of the road for me. It found it slow and I didn't much like either of the characters. In fact I really didn't like anyone in the story. The towns people were jerks. Everyone was annoying. It was well written though and Kit and Trudy has some fun banter at times. Plus I enjoyed the bookstore small town setting. So it gets a tentative 3 stars from yours truly.
