A very good read, an insight into family relationships and their consequences.

This was a pretty cute read.

I enjoy reading the challenges Pallas faced and how she worked with a whole team of people (her friends) and together they met the challenges head on despite her initial misgivings (like that zebra incident). Life isn't easy, so it's great to have great friends you can count on and of course Nick to step in and lend a hand and an artistic eye.

There are definitely family dramas, and we get to see some of it worked out here and there. Now the whole half sibling thing is definitely going to take more than 1 book to work out for sure, but the brothers do present valid points and try to give that sibling room to figure things out.

Nick and Pallas are so sweet and cute together. Their chemistry is undeniable and for sure they are a great fit. Although their story is pretty cliched and generic for stories of this genre.

The whole thing with Pallas' mom and her family issue wasn't entirely resolved, it was kind of just brushed away like all those years of hurt was nothing.

I always try to keep my comments positive, but on this novel, regretfully I am unable. The story line is very very light, which isn't a problem but I was disappointed in the sloppy edit details. There was one chapter that had two characters in a dialogue in a setting, then the very next sentence was two different characters, different day, different setting without even a paragraph break. I flipped the pages thinking I had missed something, but it was right in the middle of the page. Another time the main character "wrinkled her nose" and then two sentences later, she "wrinkled her nose". It didn't specify "again" so we are left to wonder why the author would not only use the same wording twice in one paragraph, but why the editor didn't catch and correct the error. I have read all of Susan Mallory's books and usually enjoy them, but I had to finally flip pages just to get to the end and sadly I didn't miss anything.

Some parts of this town and the story were over the top, but overall it was enjoyable. Mallery did a good job of introducing me to some future couples and characters, therefore making me want to continue the series as well.

Good read. I've already reserved the second book in the series.
