An infusion of romance is in the mix in the lush and charming town of Mill Pond, Indiana, where anything—and everything—can happen.
As a schoolteacher, Miriam is used to being the one in charge. A born leader with a whip-smart sensibility and a pair of legs that can’t be beat, she is adored by many but has never found her one true love. For the most part, that’s fine: she has a fulfilling career, a big-hearted family, and a great social life with her best friend Daphne and her better half, Chef Tyne. But when a micro-brewery owner comes to Mill Pond in search of a new beginning, Miriam can’t help but wonder whether fate has something else in store for her. . .
Joel is a single father whose divorce left him bruised, bitter, and solely focused on running his business. He doesn’t have time to go out on dates, much less begin a new relationship. But when he meets Miriam, he’s offered a glimpse into a life he never thought possible. Her warmth and wit are an alluring combination—and she hits it off with his daughter, too. Soon Joel finds himself fantasizing about spending a lifetime of “happy hours” with Miriam. But are each of these strong-willed singletons willing to give up their independence and give love a chance? All it takes is just one kiss to find out . . .
This was just an ok read for me. The story wasn't bad. I just never really connected with these characters. I did appreciate how Adele was portrayed and how the author handled her situation.
Single dad raising a special needs child comes to town to start a new business. The town is welcoming and although he swore he didn't want another relationship after his disastrous marriage Joel finds himself attracted to Miriam. She's funny, smart, and beautiful. Could she be his happily ever after?
