Rachel Holley has always dreamed of a wedding—the white dress, the fairy tale, and of course, the happily-ever-after. But when her fiancé breaks it off the night before, claiming she doesn’t love him, Rachel’s fairy tale ends in ashes.
Homeless, hopeless, and feeling like her life has been completely derailed, Rachel must start over in all sorts of ways—and hold her head up high in the fishbowl of her tiny village. The last person she expects to become a friend is Sam West, the taciturn owner of The Bell, Thornthwaite’s rougher pub, and a little rough around the edges of himself.
But as Rachel gets to know Sam, and sees him caring for his orphaned nephew, she finds herself drawn to this enigmatic man. Nothing about Sam is what Rachel expected in a life partner, and yet she can’t deny their increasing closeness. But can love flourish on the rebound? And will there be a vicarage wedding after all?
I really loved this book. I loved the flow of the story. I loved how with the title you expected one thing but in this first chapter it completely changes. I liked how real all the characters are. They have real life problems and are dealing with them like I would. I love when I can really relate to not just the main character but the others ones also. I felt like it was really down to earth. I enjoyed Rachel’s relationship with all her sister’s. I thought Sam was just adorable. And the fact he took his nephews in. I mean that really shows what kind of man he is no matter what his past is. I thought it was so cute how Sam and Rachel met. Even though Rachel is the main character I felt like the author did pretty much all the characters in the book justice. I love when two people just have that instant spark. And they always try to be friends first which never ends well. The author really knows how to make you feel for each character large or small and I appreciate that! I would definitely read another book by this author.
