The author's writing is smooth, the story flows. Her writing has humor and silliness. There are serious moment and those hurtful ones as well. They are blended together seamlessly. Her characters are well rounded individuals and believable. Her secondary characters in this story are warm, supportive, snarky and fun. They back Piper and Ward up, but will verbally slap them silly when they need it. Her descriptions and details of small town life are real. You get pulled into the story and lives of the people you meet in Seneca Lake. I started reading and before I knew it the story was done, it’s an easy read. Worth the read if you are a fan of the series, and like a very gentle romance.
