I enjoyed the premise of this book as it was one I hadn’t encountered before. Set in an antiques mall the book explores the relationship of Romi and Kiera. Both have reasons to avoid the relationship, but the book doesn’t have a major slow burn vibe as there are enough things going on to keep the story flowing. The world and character building are done really well and you can empathise with how both MCs got to where they are. I really enjoyed both MCs interactions with their parents, though very different, the alternating viewpoints work very well and the epilogue left me feeling warm and fuzzy.
As far as I can tell this is the authors first book, but I couldn’t tell. I hope there will be more and I look forward to reading them.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
