…it was like stepping into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory after a long diet of iceberg lettuce and rice cakes.
You’re a grumpy old man before your time… Your inner child must look like Benjamin Button.
Tuesday had always vaguely assumed she’d have kids until two years ago, when a friend from high school had called to cry in desperation about her sleepless, sexless life. After that Tuesday had moved that particular life goal from her “Must do” list to “Maybe.” Might be time to downgrade it to “Nope.”
My lovely fiancée has ordered me on pain of no sex for a week not to push the subject… Celibacy and I aren’t friends.
There’s a man I’d unplug from life support to charge my phone…
I was smiling and smirking as I read as I am just adoring this series by Lia Riley; it has a little of everything, clever wit and humor, a cautious romance of former nemesis, family drama, small-town rivalries, gossiping biddies, corruption, a dash of steam, a devious and villainous old crone crime boss, politics, a legend of lost treasure, a princess, a seer, a troubled child, and scandal. I was engaged and entertained throughout by Ms. Riley’s smart and amusing observations, descriptive and nimble writing style, and complex and endearingly flawed characters. I am looking forward to a return to Everland, Georgia.
Tuesday was a bit of a free spirit and she was overall a super nice and genuine person. Sometimes she could come off as a little uncaring but as I read on it was clear that wasn't the case at all. I thought her personality mixed really well with Beau's more straight-laced one and it caused them to have major sparks flying through these pages.
This book had everything I could want in a Contemporary read, the sweetness, the fun loving characters, and the overall happy feeling of the story. It may have been my first book from this author but I won't let it be the last. I can't wait to go back and read more from this town and past characters.
I never ever thought that small town romances would be a thing for me but Riley has converted me. She continues the set up she created in It Happened On Love Street, featuring a quirky little town with equally quirky residents and those adorably romantic street names. In this second book, Tuesday (Pepper's sister from the first) makes her home in Everland after abruptly leaving New York. Also left behind are the ex-boyfriend and her dreams of being an actress. Though she may have quit acting it doesn't mean that she's given up her flare for the dramatic and this is something that confounds the town's mayor, the widowed and very single, Beau. He's not used to Tuesday's view on life. He likes rules, structure and work. He drowns himself in it. As mayor he has lofty ambitions to get his beloved town on the map and thriving once again. Tuesday's impulsiveness is contrary to his sense of propriety and organization. The fact that they seem to be polar opposites doesn't mean that they aren't also enthralled with each other in small spurts. The problem is that they've had their hearts broken with everything they believed in thrown in their faces in the process, and each has reacted differently to that heartache. When Tuesday becomes a formidable spokesperson for one of the town's landmarks, it means they have to work together and time that will tell if they finally hook up or continue to be friendly foes.
I laughed quite a bit while reading this because Riley has a fun way of phrasing things, especially emotions. It's almost like you're there experiencing everything firsthand. There were plenty of moments when I thought to myself, "Same". I'm always curious when two different personalities clash and how they find mutual ground. It's no different here. The inclusion of the POV from the town's vindictive and manipulative archnemesis, Ma Hogg who lives in the next town over, makes for a distinct contrast to the entire town of Everland's generally sunny disposition. There are also a couple of other characters that I hope will get their own stories and I'm happy to have Riley surprise me.
I feel redundant saying this but I'll read anything by Lia Riley. I've read all her books so far and I've learned that she can do angsty, romantic, light-hearted, adventurous and serious. Each work she has put out has had a different feel to it. Reading On The Corner of Forever and Always was a sweet escape into a modern day fairytale-like story replete with a prince and princess warding off evil, and legends of lost treasure.
