'This book is the perfect dose of sweet, hilarious joy. . . We are in love' bestselling author Christina Lauren
If you dream something hard enough, it might just come true . . .
Maybell Parrish lives with her head in the clouds, which is the sensible choice because her fantasy life is wonderful. She runs a cosy coffee shop, surrounded by friends and the man of her dreams. Her real life, meanwhile, is full of painful disappointments. So, when Maybell inherits a stately old manor from her Great Aunt Violet, it's her chance to change everything.
Yet when she arrives, the house is falling apart around her, and Violet has left a list of demands as eccentric as she was. Worst of all, Maybell isn't the only inheritor: she has to share everything with Wesley Koehler, the groundskeeper who's as grouchy as he is gorgeous - and who has plans of his own for their shared manor.
At first, Wesley seems determined to avoid speaking to Maybell completely, but soon she begins to suspect that Wesley's scowls hide a shy, kind nature that has also found the real world a difficult place - in fact, could it be that Wesley and Maybell are better matched than even Maybell could ever have dreamed?
Perfect for fans of Helen Hoang's The Love Quotient and Sally Thorne's The Hating Game, TWICE SHY is laugh-out-loud funny, painfully relatable, and bitingly smart.

Hogle's excellent sophomore novel (after You Deserve Each Other) is an endearing take on the enemies-to-lovers trope. For Maybell Parrish, inheriting a house from the beloved great-aunt she hasn't seen in 20 years is the perfect excuse to leave her crowded apartment and toxic workplace behind. But when she arrives, she's shocked to learn that she must share the Falling Stars estate with Wesley Koehler, her aunt's groundskeeper who also happens to be the man she thought she was in a long-distance relationship with before discovering that her co-worker was catfishing her. Both refusing to be bought out, they must work together to rehabilitate Falling Stars to its former glory. But grumpy, stubborn Wesley is nothing like the man who's starred in Maybell's wildest daydreams ever since she "met" him online. They immediately butt heads, disagreeing on every decision but while working and living in close proximity, Maybell begins to see beyond Wesley's gruff facade. Particularly moving are both characters' struggles with mental health issues, as in the standout scene in which Wesley, who suffers from anxiety, helps Maybell through a panic attack. Readers are sure to be enchanted by this couple and their deeply felt struggle to open their hearts. \n
