The relationship between Rowan and Matt starts off so sweet and innocent you can't help but get pulled in their story. However they have a really rocky start (given the funeral and all).
Both these characters have difficult home lives completely different from one another but similar in the sense that they're trying to escape their current family situations. Rowans family likes to indulge in "extra activities" which doesn't amuse Rowan in the least, so she distances herself from them.
Matt on the other hand is just trying to support his broken family after the death of his father. Matt's mom is struck with grief and completely checks out leaving Matt's kid brother Danny to fend for himself. Matt's frustrated because things were finally starting to go his way with Rowan but once again Matt's home life throws another curve ball and he's dragged into his family responsibilities once again, hurting Rowan in the process once again.
I loved the scene when Matt says to Rowan "give me two weeks and we could be" Referring to the scene where he's going to get Rowan to fall for him during those two weeks. I love the fact that it takes place in a bakery and that Matt's not ashamed of his job. I also loved the pizza picnic, my husband and I do those in the summer too so it really made me smile.
Thanks Elizabeth Barone for the early release copy.
The relationship between Matt and Rowan is great. I loved that they were childhood sweethearts. Rowan had her heart broken and never knew why. Matt struggled through his adolescence and landed the baker's job in Rowan's aunt's bakery.
After the death of Rowan's aunt, Matt and Rowan come together and must work through their issues for the bakery to survive. What evolves is a wonderfully delightful story. I loved the chemistry between Matt and Rowan. The complications that arise add some realism and weight to their story.
While I'd say this sits firmly in my "fun, feel good" story pile, there is enough struggle in this book to keep it interesting and relatable. I'd recommend this if you are looking for something to make your heart happy.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from LibraryThing. This is my honest opinion of it.
