Every once in a while a contemporary romance novel comes along that takes the reader on an emotional and satisfying journey, and that is exactly what authors/sisters Dulaney-Glen have done in their debut novel Unexpected.

Set in the country music capital of Nashville, and told in the first person narrative with alternating points of view by Grace Holtsen and Ian Paul, the reader follows along on their journey of friendship and "unexpected" love. Theirs is a love story of two down-to-earth people who face day-to-day ups and downs that comes with the development of an unlikely romantic relationship. It's an emotional story that draws the reader into Grace and Ian's world, you can't help but relate and feel for them as their relationship builds, and they struggle with the fears, misgivings, holding back, learning to trust, and giving into the love that they have for each other.

The story has a great mixture of emotion and humor that makes it easy to get caught up in Grace and Ian's story. Just as their relationship seems to take off and blossom, the authors throw in some unexpected twists and turns that changes everything, keeping the reader hanging on and turning the pages. The reader will fall in love with Grace and Ian, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention the wonderful supporting cast: Grace's lovable twelve year old son Milo and sassy best friend / nanny Nina, and Ian's best friend Andrew, whose quirky antics and humorous dialogue make the story that much more endearing and entertaining.

Unexpected has everything that a romance fan enjoys: a love story that is built upon friendship, romance and humor, and the ability to overcome hardships with emotion and hope. This is a thoroughly enjoyable story, kudos to the authors on their wonderful debut novel.
