As I continue to review books, I find myself re-evaluating criteria, and then myself. I’ve seen reviewers give negative ratings to a book that is well-written, but for which they didn’t like the ending. Or they give negative ratings because they didn’t like a character. These reasons don’t always work for me because it may well be that the author has made the character unlikable to make the story resonate and be more believable. And, obviously, except for genre novels, endings may not always go as we’d like, but they should be in line with the characterizations and plot. So, I do try to take a step back after reading and understand why I’m not thrilled with a book that was obviously well written.

Well, that’s not just an off-the-cuff bit. But let me give you a synopsis before I give a review.

Another of Katie fforde's charming romances. Sian and her young son Rory have moved to a country village, where she hopes to find a better school for Rory and space for her furniture-decorating business. Older neighbor Fiona takes her under her wing and Sian is beginning to settle in when Fiona's world-explorer son arrives and the cozy village life becomes much more exciting. Quite a bit happens on the way to the happy ending. I like fforde's books because the protagonist is always doing interesting things, not just waiting around for Mr. Right. Recommended. ( )
