Excellent narration
The story had some great characters but I didn't get why the MC was such an idiot. She lacked common sense and just acted ridiculous in bits. I really liked the side characters, loved Malone he didn't play the drama game, didn't gossip or spend days talking about others. There was a lot of gossip in this small town which is expected but shouldn't this girl learn to shut it ? It was just her bits here and there that irked me taking 1 star off my rating.

The first chapter of this book (and parts thereafter) had me laughing so hard I nearly cried! And I really didn't think I was going to warm up to the hero at all but I soooooo did! :)

Kristan Higgins' books are full of laugh-out-loud hilarity and breathless romance! "Real" heroes and heroines and heartwarming family round out the mix.

A note to my Christian fiction followers: this is not Christian fiction. Read it accordingly. :) ( )

Can't go wrong with Kristan Higgins! ( )

The heroine was such a doormat and brought public humiliation on herself. Still the story sucked me in hoping for a big turnaround that never really happened. I doubt this new relationship will last any longer than the others considering the way it started. Maggie has had some disastrous relationships but she keeps trying to find the right man. ( )

Maggie has a knack for getting into embarrassing situations. One such situation? Having the entire town know that she's in love with the local priest, Father Tim. Second situation? Going to a big church dinner completely smashed and declaring her undying love to said priest. Now Father Tim is determined to hook Maggie up with someone suitable. The dates end up being one huge disaster after another. But at least they're entertaining the locals who patronize Maggie's diner. While being stood up by one of those dates, Maggie finds herself cornered by her ex-boyfriend and his pregnant wife. Surprisingly it's Malone, the local recluse, who comes to her rescue.

I loved Malone. He remains an extremely quiet man throughout the whole book, but Higgins manages to show how much he likes Maggie through his actions. Maggie on the other hand was somewhat annoying. She's constantly making bad decisions that put her in embarrassing situations. Reading those scenes were pretty painful. Maggie also sort of stalks Malone a few times and has the tendency to run her mouth. I seriously wanted to shake some self-awareness into that girl and tell her to get a grip on herself. Despite my annoyances with Maggie, I enjoyed the storyline and side characters. I'll definitely be picking up another Higgins novel soon. ( )
