What I Liked:
This was an easy read. I purposefully chose to save this book until after the Story Sessions' retreat, and I'm so glad I did. It's light, romantic, and quick on the plot. If I hadn't had some work-related things I needed to do while reading the book, I probably could have finished it in one setting.
What I Loved:
Ruth and Derek. Their characters were so engaging I wanted to know more. I wanted more of Ruth interacting with her girlfriends, more of the backstory of how Ruth and Derek got to be where they were, more of Derek and his friends, more of Ruth's history of writing...just more.
I also loved that this book reminded me of Serendipity in a lot of ways. Remember that movie? I loved-hated that movie because of how frustratingly realistic the missed-opportunities were for the couple. Yeah. Buckle down. This book is like that and I kinda loved it.
What You Should Know:
In Story Sessions we have this saying of choose yourself. It goes for a lot of things, really, but Morey did it by self-publishing this title and staking her claim within the indie author market. It's a huge risk. HUGE. Check out this blog post she wrote a few weeks ago on her perfectly-inperfect book launch. I already had respect for this woman before she wrote about listening to her critics with a patient ear. After this post? That respect sky-rocketed. From someone who knows what it's like to be on the proverbial chopping block of book reviewers and naysayers, I love-love-love her attitude here.
We need more of her in the indie world.
