I feel awful that I have had Sound Advice on my kindle for a while and just now getting to it. I loved it. How can you no fall in love with Jess. (where do I get one?) His sweet little princess Katie and Emily who is just too sweet and polite. I loved them all and all the side characters. (right now I'm taking a break from readin the second book in the Sensations Collections to type this up, so my mind is a all over the place) Its amazing that this is a debut novel, its so well written and oh just an amazing book. If your reading this you are already interested in this book so just get it and read it. You will be like me in the end asking yourself why you didn't get to it sooner.
Then we have the opposite hero. Jess was a total gentleman, but mean at first. He won me over regardless of the long hair. Lol. Ladies Jon me in thus trip of meeting a single dad that had to deal with circumstances out of his control. You will grow to admire this man, feel for him, be annoyed with him, and wish he would stop confusing us. Oh, and he is so romantic and passionate. Definitely swoon worthy moments.
But the two characters that helped create this story and make what it is are nana and Katie. You will love them, sigh over the situations, find yourself on edge wondering what will happened next. Oh and I love the touch of the etiquette references that nana provided. I enjoyed how the author incorporated the as part of the chapters, a leading path.
I am glad I picked it up, and read it. Something drew me to this book. Hope you guys enjoy it as well. 😊
I love the small town setting; it is certainly one that I am familiar with - though, like the heroine of this story, I am equally familiar with big cities. I finally found my happy medium six and a half years ago when my husband and I settled in a small suburb surrounded by big city. I believe my hesitation to read this series has been that it is set in Michigan, a state that holds very few good memories of my eight years living there, mostly in a small town, but down state and much less idyllic, at least for me. I have to admit that every mention of Michigan had me cringing for those reasons, but the story itself is undeniably enchanting. I read it in one sitting, while I probably should have been sleeping, but it was too good to let rest.
You'll be hard pressed to find any woman who doesn't swoon a bit over a dedicated single father, and I found it impossible to resist Jess, even in his early appearances when his actions toward Emily were less than charming. And his sweet, mute daughter is a total heartbreaker, throughout the story. She really steals the show, though there are many charming (and maybe not so charming) memorable characters on every page.
In the author's notes at the end, she mentions the inspiration for Nana is a combination of her husband's two grandmothers. Nana could have easily been a combination of my two grandmothers - both of whom wrote columns for small town newspapers (though, admittedly, neither as eloquent a column subject as manners - one the "gossip" column of who visited whom, and the other a "Digging Up the Past" column with exciting news such as Farmer Larson selling 2 cows in 1896.) One I also lost to Alzheimers last year, at the age of 97, after suffering two hip breaks in the preceding 5 years. So, all of the story lines hit very close to home for me, but I feel almost every one will find relatable bits and pieces in this beautiful story, which, while undoubtedly a romance, expands beyond those confines with the deep family ties explored in very different scenarios, a veritable travel guide of the northern part of the southern peninsula of Michigan, and the friends and neighbors who go out of their way when need arises.
If I wasn't so familiar with the author's brilliant Legendary Rock Stars series, which is a modernization of the King Arthur tales, I might not have picked up as quickly on the modernization of Beauty and the Beast in this one, though as the story unfolds, it is spelled out pretty clearly. It is a wonderful rendition of that tale as old as time as well.
For those friends and followers of mine who may not be quite as enthralled with rockstars as I personally am, this book will now be near, or at, the top of my recommendations list for them.
