Kyle is temporarily working in Good Hope and because his 12 year old sister, Lolo is coming to stay with him for a time, he wants a real home for her. Lolo was being bullied in school in Kentucky. And her best friend,who was also being bullied even attempted to take her own life. It is decided that Lolo needs a new start at least for a time. Kyle has just purchased a wonderful Victorian home.
Kyle did not realize the home was a part of a family situation. When he finds out that Eliza's heart is broken, he and Eliza work out a solution. They will temporarily share the house until there is an answer for everyone. So, the large house has Eliza, Kyle, Lolo and Katherine, an elderly cousin of Eliza's. Katherine has returned to Good Hope because after moving away, she missed her friends and family.
The four people become like a family. Katherine and Lolo become very close. And as time passes, Eliza and Kyle become comfortable with one another. In fact, they begin to like one another.
Eliza is a private person who does not want the entire town to know what her father has done to her. Kyle is willing to go along with keeping her secret. People in town begin to believe the two of them may be an item.
Eliza and Kyle believe the two of them may be an item.
Good Hope is a small town populated by people who care for one another. When there is a need, nearly everyone in town comes together to provide whatever is needed.
In the previous books in this series, the main characters have been the Bloom sisters. Eliza was on the edges of the stories. But, she appeared to be a cold and unfeeling woman when in fact she was simply used to being self sufficient.
Her life is devoted to Good Hope and she is responsible for many events running smoothly. In reality, her history has created a person who is afraid to show emotion or feel much in her heart. Her father has held her at a distance. It has colored her feeling of self worth.
Kyle has come to Good Hope because he needs to determine whether the father who raised him is actually his biological father. He was raised in a family where love is easily given and he is open and easy with the world. He has hired a crew and they are restoring a theater which has played a big part in the history of the town.
Kyle's warmth and humor begin to thaw Eliza and help her find out who she truly is. She sees things she can do to help Lolo find confidence in herself. And a small baby named Sarah Rose falls in love with Eliza. Slowly, Eliza falls in love with Sarah Rose. Eliza even learns that Katherine is not the woman she had always believed she knew.
Life can be interesting and fun if you are willing to share it with others.
Ms Kirk has created another story filled with warmth and humor. Although this is part of a series, it works as a stand alone. The story includes explanations of relationships and histories which make things easy to follow.
I have liked every one of the books in this series. The characters are wonderful people who would make good friends. The plots end with a happily ever after. But, before we arrive at that HEA, there are actual problems with actual pain which can intrude on the happiness.
Just as in life, things do not always go smoothly. And at times the sorrows can be wrenching.
I received this book from the author. I am voluntarily writing this review and all opinions are my own.
Cindy Kirk took a huge risk in pairing the determined Eliza with easy going Kyle Kendrick in this well- paced story. Eliza Shaw is devastated when she learns that her father has sold her home to Kyle and she has no intentions of moving! Her grandmother promised that Eliza would inherit the beautiful Victorian home. The fun begins when Kyle and Eliza compromise and agree to share the house until the legal paperwork is resolved.
The couple begins to bond when Kyle’s sister Lolo comes for an extended visit. Lolo has been through a tough time and needs a change of scenery. Eliza remembers that she felt alone was teased in junior high. Loved when Eliza saw Lolo’s first fashion faux pas and transformed her outfit for church in 10 minutes. I liked how Eliza and Kyle worked together to make sure Lolo felt secure in Good Hope.
Family is important to both Eliza and Kyle. Cindy Kirk provides Eliza’s backstory through conversations with Eliza’s cousin Katharine and several heart to heart conversations between Eliza and Kyle. Eliza’s relationship with her father explains her determination to succeed. Kyle’s situation is different from Eliza’s. His parents have been supportive but, much to his surprise he has learned that he may have a sibling in Good Hope. I loved the speed dating questions when Eliza and Kyle talked about honesty and trust in a relationship—it was a turning point in their relationship.
Say I Do in Good Hope has all the small town warmth and charm that I adore in this series. Cindy Kirk’s descriptive voice shines in this novel. She includes so many details that make this novel relatable; birth, death, weddings and new beginnings. This is my favorite story in the series. I feel the friends to lovers romance between the strong willed Eliza and easy going Kyle was perfectly written. The last few chapters had a few surprises for the couple—and the ending - -especially the grand gesture made me cry!
Cindy Kirk has created a town that I would love to move to. The inhabitant of Good Hope are "good" and give you "hope" that there is still good people on this earth who care for one another. This is the fifth installment of the Good Hope series. I have read each of these books and have come to love most of Good Hope's residents, except for Eliza Shaw.
In the previous books, Eliza was portrayed as a cold-hearted individual; however, in Say I Do in Good Hope, you learn that Eliza Shaw acts this way to protect herself. When she was in middle school, she was nicknamed Olive Oyl and those feelings associated with bullying made her build up walls and appear standoffish.
The book begins with Eliza learning that her father sold the house she is currently living in. Eliza's grandmother had promised Eliza would receive the house as her inheritance; however, the will was never updated, so the house went to her father and he sold it to try to get her to leave Good Hope.
The new owner of the house is Kyle Kendrick, a builder who is living in Good Hope while he remodels the theatre. Kyle is a compassionate man who soon realizes what Eliza's father has done to her. Kyle offers to let Eliza remain in the house as a roommate. Soon, Kyle peels back the protective defenses that Eliza has built around her heart and love blossoms.
