I, Charlotte Valentine, am mostly of sound mind. Typically, I make really good choices. I mean I went to college, never did drugs . . . I even brush and floss every day. That’s not to say I don’t make poor decisions—believe me, I do. They always seem to involve men—everything from gluing my eye shut (don’t ask) to falling in love with my boss. Did I mention he was famous? Oh, Drake Foster, you beautiful creature, you. My sister told me not to accept the position as his personal assistant. Apparently, she thinks it’s emotionally unhealthy for me to work for the object of my desire. What does she know?Well, she knew enough to tell me not to go on a little jaunt with him through a blizzard. She was definitely against us sharing the only room left at the coziest inn ever. And what happened after that she was adamant should have never happened. But, hey, it all worked out. I got the inn and the cutest kid ever. Unfortunately, Drake has no idea about either one—he really should answer his phone more—until, that is, he decides to take a trip down memory lane and shows up at my beloved inn. Let’s just say he’s surprised. But he’s not the only one. Who knew our connection would be just as strong as it always was and that all this time, I’ve haunted him as much as he’s haunted me? But this time, will love come to stay, or is it checking out for good? USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Peel presents a swoony, laugh-out-loud, magical story that will make you believe in the power of true love.
As always such a wonderful, fun, emotional and very well written book. I’m never disappointed reading any of Ms Peel’s books. I hated for it to end.
The story was so fun and had a happy ending. It was well written and had pretty believable dialogue. The characters were adorable. I would say it’s a closed door romance- nothing embarrassing to be caught reading, but I probably wouldn’t have my teen read it (I’m overly protective). I can’t wait to read more from this author. I was able to listen to the audio of this book and I really enjoyed it. The narrator did a great job!
Really enjoyed reading this story. Wasn’t the same old plot. Kept you guessing whether it would work out. Cute storyline.
I need more than 5 stars to rate this book!! Oh! My! Goodness!!! I know I say that a lot when reviewing Jennifer Peel’s books but it’s true. EVERY. TIME. I listened to the audiobook (it’s 8.5 hours) and breezed through it in no time at all and no, I don’t listen at double speed. I started listening at night and couldn’t wait to finish it the next morning. I listened while cooking dinner, cleaning the kitchen, soaking in the bath, checking email, you get the idea. I love a good second chance love story and this one had me hooked; I was completely wrapped up in Charlotte and Drake’s story. I had to see how they would work everything out. Charlotte is adorable (she hates being called that) but with her overalls, messy bun and petite height how else would you describe her? But don’t let her appearance fool you, she’s fiercely loyal and not to be messed with. Mess with her son, Jameson, or anyone Charlotte cares about and she becomes a mama bear, tiger, or whatever you consider scary. I would love to be friends with her. I loved her relationship with her sister Izzy and wish I had that kind of relationship with my sister. As another reviewer said “Drake is frustratingly frustrating” but he’s also very charming and I could totally see how Charlotte fell for him. He’s got some things to work through and it takes him awhile to let Charlotte in to see the stuff he hasn’t allowed anyone to see. These two definitely had some hard things to work through but with the magic of the Valentine Inn helping them along, they’ll be fine. I can’t leave out the wonderful side characters–George and his deceased wife Daisy, little Jameson and Charlotte’s sister Izzy. The reader can tell how much George loved Daisy and she sounds like the cutest little thing. Jameson is as adorable as any 5 year boy could be and Izzy is so funny, I can’t wait to read Izzy’s story. WARNING: if you’re reading the paperback or ebook this book is a sleep stealer. Proceed at your own risk…you’ve been warned. The narrator is fantastic. I’ve listened to other books Stefanie Kay has narrated and she always does a great job voicing the characters and getting the emotions across. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes: Drake to Charlotte “Don’t let anyone make you feel insignificant today, especially yourself.” and George quoting his late wife Daisy “If you aren’t happy, then it’s not over. Some happily ever afters take some time, but don’t ever give up.”
A cute story about a magical place that brings true souls together. A place people come back to in order to renew their love and faith in each other. Good story!
I really enjoyed this book. Especially the bonus chapter when you sign up for the newsletter. There were some gut punch moments, which I always look for in romance and a lot of fun chatacters with a bit of magic. If you love Maddie Dawson, you’ll love this book. If you don’t know Maddie Dawson, read her. Then read this. Or switch it up. You do you. Enjoy.
