This was short and sweet and I read it in one evening. I enjoyed the story of Grace and watching her journey of self-discovery. I can’t imagine that someone could be so shy that they could reach the age of 37 and have never been on a single date! I feel for anyone that may actually be in a situation like this.
The thing is, she never meets anyone new. She forces herself to leave the cocoon of the restaurant (even her apartment is the upper floor in the same building.) She decides to take a bus and try to talk to people and get them to give her recipes.
The story chronicles her adventures on the bus and the people she meets. She ends up hearing about the struggles in life that other people have endured and that helps her with her own issues. When she hears of a young girl (Mandy) who is becoming as shy as she is, she decides to take action. Along the way, Grace also gets to know Mandy's father, Hank, who is also the bus driver on her adventures.
Definitely a sweet story and, while concise, it is complete in itself. I would have loved to have read some of the recipes that Grace collected – perhaps at the end of the novella or even as a book on its own.
It was a very heartwarming story. I do so love stories with a lot of heart.
I just loved how the heroine's project grew and gained momentum.
The only thing that could improve it, besides being longer as I didn't want it to end, is to call the heroine's extreme shyness social anxiety. That's really what it is. But that's a really minor thing. Otherwise it couldn't be more perfect.
There was one part where it talked about Grace blogging and it mistakenly said that Evie would read through the bios and pick out examples for Evie to write about on the blog. It should have said for Grace to write about, but that's an error that should be easy to correct.
This was a nice, feel good story that doesn't take long to read.
