Bree Leake and Chip McBride can't stand each other, the only problem is that they are next door neighbors.
Bree is had spent most of her life drifting from profession to profession, her latest being a member of the fair folk in the Barter's latest play. She longs to put down roots and find the place that she belongs, but nothing ever seems to be the right fit.
Chip McBride is starting over in his hometown, after moving back to be closer to his family. Everything is all set up for him, but he doesn't want to follow the path marked out for him from the sales job to the girlfriend right out of Southern Belle Magazine. If only he could prove himself, and escape his family's looming shadow.
This is a fast paced, modern romantic comedy, with colorful characters and plenty of hijinks along the way. This was an engaging read, but I wish that the characters had been able to spend more time together, rather than just thinking about each other all the time.
Overall, a light hearted read, with plenty of laughs, I absolutely loved Russell's antics and his love for Bree. Mrs. Lewis is so adorable, and I loved Bree's quirky friends. They both have fantastic families. A quick fun read, that is at times outrageous. Great for fans of romantic comedy.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
