* Review Copy provided by Netgalley in exchange for a honest review *
I believe this story is a self-published novel (although I could be wrong) and it is very well written. Unlike alot of self-pub's it is not full of spelling and grammatical errors and the story flows beautifully. The main characters are well developed and after the first couple of chapters you are utterly enchanted and absorbed into the life of Gwyn.
This is what I'd call a "grown up" romance.
Gwyn - our leading lady - is a 35 year old single mother of 3.
Gareth is a 42 year old Hollywood star.
They meet by chance at a theatre, in a small town somewhere in Canada, and the relationship develops from there.
The relationship between the two is very sweet and despite Gareth being a Hollywood superstar it is believable. It feels real. It's warm, homey, and generally very domestic but not at all boring.
I really liked and respected both Gwyn and Gareth and from the very beginning you are hoping they will get together and that they'll be happy... There are ups and downs but in the end you are not left disappointed.
The last two chapters of this book were a little bit daft. They read like the grand finale of a film were the cast gather for the big hurrah... But I read them with a huge grin on my face and a warm fuzzy feeling wrapped around me cause the book was awesome and the ending was simply perfect.
My only complaint? No epilogue. I really do love epilogues but you can't have everything :)
5 out of 5 stars
