Building a bridge between two worlds can be tricky.
Hannah Shephard likes her life, her job, and her perfectly cozy apartment around the corner from her shop. She’s never been one to take big risks and would much rather stay in on a Friday night with a warm cup of decaf and her favorite mystery novel, so why do her friends insist she needs more? Plus, Hannah has bigger problems to focus on. She’s in trouble. Well, her bookstore is, and if she doesn’t find a way to bring in some more cash, she’ll be closing the doors of A Likely Story for good.
When world famous romance novelist Parker Bristow accepts her request to come in for a signing, Hannah might finally be able to drum up some much-needed attention and save the shop. What she didn’t anticipate was an unexpected evening and a woman she wouldn’t soon forget. A real romance is off the table. Parker is flashy, sought after, and Hannah is just, well, Hannah. But for Parker, it seems like Hannah might be a safe place to fall. The question is, what kind of falling are they doing?
Another wonderful story from Melissa Brayden. It’s full of angst and love and wine and books. It doesn’t get any better than that! I can’t say enough good things about this story. You certainly won’t be disappointed with this book!
I really wanted to like this book. Bookstores, authors, and a queer romance. Sadly, I’m disappointed in this one. I just could not get into the Parker character at all. Also the choices this character made really put me off and I had trouble finishing it. Usually I really like Melissa Brayden’s books but this one not so much.
