This story is of the sweetest sister, Hazel Little Darling, a baker looking for a change in scenery and a new start to her life. She believes in fairytales and ever afters, with timing having to be at the right time for everything to be perfect. She's the only sister that still has her birth mother alive, although they're estranged and not together, her childhood memories with her mother and the devil of a father that birthed her are still lingering nightmares. Though the scars are still there from those abuse, she has left them in the past.
I absolutely loved how honest and open Hazel was even when she first met Tobias, a.k.a Stranger. How she nicknamed him that because she wanted to keep that night with him forever as a sign that everything would be alright, even if he was just a moment's passing in time who knew her dreams and little secrets. Unfortunately, he wasn't meant to be a stranger to her because his gallery was located across the street from her bakery. Because of his kind nature and intriguing personality, she found a peaceful friend in him.
Tobias was a character, the hero that was definitely amazing. Heart-throbbing, caring, handsome, understanding, and Scottish, he changed the game for Hazel being a companion and shoulder to lean on. Even though we didn't get to see his thoughts and mind, his actions and words made up for it in telling his story and feelings, especially when it comes to Hazel and his art. Although she only wanted him to stay in the friend zone, he obviously didn't want or feel the same way. Her presence made his day and helped inspire his artworks.
I definitely enjoyed reading how they came to fall in love. Though they never truly were a couple, since they were on the friend zone, it was nice seeing them together and getting to know more about the other. The cute scenes of gift giving and the meanings behind the stories and art works they love were great coinciding with their own.
I will admit that at the beginning I was a bit annoyed at how the story was written and how much info was being added to understand the story and background, but once their story started moving, it was good.
However, I wanted a bit more out of the story. It wasn't bad and I was happy at the end but I felt like it wasn't written to its full potential. I felt like it lacked in fully pulling the readers into the story and history of Hazel's gritty past. I also felt like, "what is the point of this story?" There wasn't a lot that happened, there was that little bit of drama towards the end with Tobias' mother and of her past but that was nothing major. The playing field was basically clam and steady the majority of the time. Nothing really changed from the beginning to the end aside from Hazel and Tobias becoming a couple and admitting to their feelings and trust for another. It was just..... yeah.
But the story of Hazel and Tobias was definitely sweet and charming, full of passion for what they love doing and of course for each other, so that was nice. So don't judge a persons from their past because they can totally be a different person.
Hazel Darling is the first of the sisters to be highlighted from the Pistol Fanny's ~ Hank & Delilah book. She needs an escape and for good reason.
Have you ever had to turn over a new leaf, Stranger? Or as my Uncle Hennessey likes to say, 'turn your life upside down like a snow globe, just to see if you like the way the white pieces land better than they did before.' I think what he really means is, if you don't like the way your life is going, you have to shake it up a bit. And that's what I'm doin' here. Just shaking my snow globe.
She meets Tobias, a successful artist and there is an instant connection, but Tobias is quite puzzled by Hazel since she is so different than other women.
I loved Pepsi too!!
“I need you to promise me, baby. That you will open yourself up to everything life has in store for you. Yes, really bad things can happen, but usually—I come to find, anyway—the bad things in life are usually not that bad, and the good things are usually that good.”
There are some difficult times in this story for these characters.....
“Beneath the sky we met and a connection was born, beneath the stars, those mighty things that burn for all to see. We followed them until the end of the journey, and at the end, we burned with them, not for ‘just one moment,’ but for eternity. As long as the stars shine above, so will our everlasting connection.”
“I apologize, Tobias. I never meant to be rude to you. It’s just that, well, I wanted that. We met underneath the stars. And relationships just don’t work for me. Not that I think we could have had a relationship, or that you are even interested—”
Can Hazel move forward from her past? Will Tobias be a part of her future?
I loved this book and once again, Ms. Welch can tell a story that intrigues you. This is another story of hers that is so different from everything else out in the world of books.
I would highly recommend anything she has written, but this story is one of my favorites!
Hazel one of the many sisters in the said story had an angel and devil on her shoulder. I guess in the Pistol Fanny's book you meet all the sisters. That being said this is Hazels story and how she leaves the pack to live her own life. In doing so she opens up a bakery. Nice small, quaint bakery. The opening day there was a line around the corner, literally.
While making her new life she meets Tobias. At first glance he is any other man. Their first meeting Hazel just rambled on, she really didn't give Tobias much time to talk. When she did he asked her a few questions then she done took off talking again LOL!!
To me the book was a little slow paced, it picked up towards the end for me though. Tobias and Hazel learn about one another, they become more than friends. It's sad that because of Tobias's financial background his mother of all people tell it like it is. She doesn't know Hazel. She learned of her, or what she thinks is Hazel and her family. She doesn't really know the situation. Tobias didn't know really either. Hazel gave little hints here and there but the full story doesn't come out until the end.
You will have to read to see if Hazel get's her HEA!
