I am in love with this story. I honestly  want to read every book by Holly Martin. I love books where we can explore the minds of both characters in the the story. This story has so much dimension and dept. I am in love with this love story. The details and settings make you feel warm. I gave the story a 4/5 stars, but the more I think of it I should have given it a perfect five. Its only downfall was the way it ended. The very abrupt ending made me long for more. I want to know what happens with Gabe and Pip. The next story will involve Gabe’s sister. I am hoping that things will wrap up. I am looking for to more by Holly. I highly suggest this book to anyone.
