Notes from August 2017:
Plot and Setting: 4 -- This is a very sweet, cute romance. A bit of a comedy of errors as they misunderstand each other/ say the wrong thing/ decide they aren't good enough. The timeline was relatively clear, until the end (the epilogue in particular was rather vague on how much time had passed), but I confess I'm confused as to why it's called Autumn's Majesty when the vast majority of the book takes place in summer.
Characters: 4.6 -- I like both Jamie and Theo, and it's pretty cute how they each make the other uncharacteristically tongue-tied. They each make their fair share of mistakes and missteps, but come around to being in better places as individuals and together. Some good moments with family and friends, plus a lot of people mentioned in passing. I would've liked more about Jamie's parents.
Mechanics and Writing: 3.5 -- Generally skillful writing. Errors include: compound word confusion, mild punctuation or formatting issues (including some misplaced commas, and oddly irregular indents), use of the wrong word (go for got, look for looking, etc) and a few words dropped altogether. A few inconsistencies that were a bit confusing, but mostly it was just little errors that apparently slipped through during editing. POV Alternates between Jamie and Theo.
Redeeming Value: 5 -- Very clean. I can't think of anything that might ruffle feathers. Strong theme of not changing yourself because one person criticizes, but to instead listen to godly friends and family for their loving advice. Also being careful before you speak, avoiding gossip, helping neighbors, and not putting yourself down for your appearance.
Personal Enjoyment: 4.5
As an Orthodox Christian reader, I also like that this series has Greek Orthodox characters, since they're so rarely represented in fiction. Though there is not anything particularly Orthodox about any of the customs or prayers (and nary an icon is mentioned), readers who are familiar with the Greek church will recognize the hallmark hospitality and love of kindness and good works.
I'm looking forward to reading more in this new series, as I have loved the previous ones so much. Without adding spoilers, I will mention that you might recognize a few folks visiting from the Cane River Series, too! Highly recommend this clean read.
