Read on for my review!
Part of what makes a "perfect" relationship perfect, in my opinion, is complementing one another. Where Ryan is closed off and hesitant, Holly is open and enthusiastic. She's also way more understanding than I would be, which is exactly what Ryan needs. Holly wants to be loved and appreciated for who she is, not what she does, so she hides certain aspects (like fame and fortune...) from Ryan, making every interaction more tense as you wonder if this will be the moment he discovers the truth. And while I wanted to throttle her for every missed opportunity to come clean with Ryan, a part of me also understands and respects that she would want to revel a little in the affection that she gets from Ryan totally on her own merits, and not because she's Hope Creswell. And really, who wouldn't want to enjoy a cute,"lumbersexual" man who appreciates a woman for who she is?
Love on a Spring Morning was, I think, the most difficult Pine Harbour book yet, and not because it's bad. Quite the opposite, in fact. It is so full of real life, that sometimes you have to set it down and breathe. But in the end? What you get to take away is so very beautiful. Get your copy here!
