How Could I Not Love This Book When It Left Me Smiling ?

32319723.jpg 5 Stars for for a book that gave me giggles, tingles, wiggles and a big wide smile.
I adored these characters, I want to move them in next door. Quinn, the woman who lost a part of her soul when her sister died, and her past was scrambled. She was so easy to attach to. She was snarky, emotional, warm, giving and stubborn and she cooked, bonus. Mick, strong, tall, dark, sexy, dedicated, kind, giving, and good to his mom. Yums. Tilly, she was the teenager who had life hit her upside the head. This girl was not the stereotypical teen in most books, she had her drama, her back talking, and defenses in full force but she was also very lovable and unselfish. So many characters from the parents, the catty ex, to the weird old men hanging around gossiping, I loved them all, each were developed just enough never over done.
The story was a beautiful love story that dealt with finding the right place in the world. It may not be where you are planning on going. There is a lot of heart felt emotional findings in this and so much fun. Tilly’s journal note at the beginning of each chapter always made me laugh.
The story touches of some sensitive subjects. Death of a sibling, child abuse, adoption, corruption, all were handled tastefully and resolved.
I gave it 5 stars for pure enjoyment I got out of the book. I am planning of re-reading this and listening to it on audio.
