This was a really enjoyable story. I liked both Carl and Marianne and was happy to see them work things out.
Marianne is a law student who has finished with pre-law and is planning to go on to law school. Marianne came from a small town and has been determined to escape it but lately has been thinking her future plans aren't as great as she always thought.
Carl is a mechanic and owner of the local garage. Carl came from a horrible family and was befriended by Marianne's brother and then the rest of her family. He's made a good life for himself but still is rather reserved.
I wont go in to too much details to avoid spoiling things (since this is a very short story) but I will say that I liked the set up, the characters and thought that Harper did her normal, high quality story crafting. Things came together quickly but believably and ended in a good way, with Marianne and Carl starting to rebuild their relationship and heading towards and eventual HEA together.
This was a really enjoyable story and I would recommend it. :)
* note - I listened to the audio version of this story and the narrator did a very good job.
This really felt like Marianne's story to me. Yes, there is some romance between Marianne and Carl but this was Marianne's tale. Marianne left the small town she grew up in when she went to college because she was looking for something more. She found what she thought she wanted and has a life she likes and what she thinks she needs as she comes home for a little while before going to law school.
Marianne has a large and colorful family and they all live by each other. Some of her family works in the funeral industry and Marianne is there to help out since she is home for a while. She ends up putting some of her negotiation skills to use pretty quickly when a family can't decide how to handle a loved one's final wishes. It was fun to watch Marianne try to find her spot in her family and their business.
When Marianne left the small town, she left Carl. It is pretty obvious right away that Carl and Marianne are still very attracted to each other. They have a lot of unresolved issues to work through since their break up was pretty rough but I thought that they really seemed to fit with each other.
I would recommend this book to others. I will say that just as the romance started to get going the book ended. I guess the idea behind a prequel novella is to make readers want to start reading the series and I can say that this novella accomplished that goal because I do want to find out what happens next. Anyone who enjoys a fun romantic story filled with humor and great characters will enjoy this one. I can't wait to read more from Molly Harper soon!
I won a kindle copy of this book from a giveaway on Goodreads.
OMG, if this is a preview of how good this series is going to be, I'm completely on board as an auto-buy for this series.
This is a second chance at love story. Four years ago, Marianne went to college and broke up with Carl right before she left, breaking his heart. Now she's home for the summer before she heads off to law school and seeing Carl for the first time in four years...and it's not easy.
The entire story is told from Marianne's POV, so it's hard to know exactly what Carl is thinking and feeling, especially at first. But he's a good guy...that's obvious from the very first when he probably should be at least slightly abrupt with Marianne...she left him in the worst way and completely blindsided him with their breakup. He thought they were going to do the long distance thing. He never planned on holding her back from her dreams, so that's why it took him by surprise so much.
But they are awesome now. It takes a while to get around the leftover wariness of one another from before, but the dance and the chemistry is amazing. I loved them together and all the little details of this town and Marianne's family and how Carl fits into that.
I've always loved Molly Harper's paranormal series, but didn't know how that would translate to contemporary stories. The good news is that it translates amazingly well. I couldn't have loved this story anymore and am so excited that it's kicking off a whole new series. I'm ready. Bring on the rest of the books. My one-click finger is ready!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
So what was so good about it you may ask. First off all this is a second chance romance, one of the most fun genres that I read. It was also a second chance homecoming for Marianne who had fled Lake Sackett four years earlier. She has been avoiding the return home, avoiding her past, avoiding regret. But she can't avoid the guilt laid on by her momma.
The family dynamics are so unique, so special. I want to search all of Georgia for the funeral home that has a bait shop connected on one side and a snack shop on the other. Talk about one stop shopping. Really, who thinks up this stuff??? The amazing Molly Harper, that's who.
Marianne's family is quite the eclectic group. The holidays must be an absolute blast. And her ex-boyfriend, Carl had me dreaming of ways to breakdown needing a tow truck. I think of Carl and the strong silent type. With him sometimes actions speak louder than words. But his words can cut deep, having me turning the pages for more, more, more.
