Tagline: Cindy thought she would never adjust to small-town life--then she met someone special and changed her mind...
In a Nutshell: Cindy is offered a promotion in a small town. She visits the town to check it out. During her trip, she meets a guy who shows her how wonderful small-town life can be. Plus, he's cute!
Observations: This was a delightful story. We got a realistic situation/problem. The heroine can score a promotion, but she has to relocate to a small town.
We got a biased but open-minded heroine. She doesn't think she'll like the town, but is willing to check it out and see.
There's that small-town setting that Woman's World loves, even if only a small part of the story actually occurred in the town.
There's humor. I loved Evan's line--"Uh-oh. I'm not working fast enough for you?"
I especially liked the solution to the hotel problem. It was perfect and, for me, unexpected. OF COURSE, his sister and her husband own the hotel. It's a small town!!!
Usually, I like to see more interaction between the hero and heroine, but in this case, it was unnecessary.
