Intro Babble: To start off, this is a namesake book. I love them and have a small collection of them. I have been waiting for Grace's story in a big way. Not only because we share a first name but she's been my favorite character in the series. And she didn't let me down. I absolutely loved this book.
Heroine: Grace-I loved her and it's not just because we share the same name. She was smart, spunky and one of the most realistic, non-obnoxious heroine I have ever had the good fortune to come across. If you are ever in a drought where every heroine you come across seems like a bleating ninny, read this book. It will cure you of the heroine induced weariness.
Hero: Patrick-I absolutely loved him as well. He was a sweetie. He was also a fireman so he had that man in uniform thing going for him. I did have some moments where I wanted to smack him but they were few and far between.
Chemistry: It was sort of love at first signt but not in that obnoxious way. It was believable and not at all overdone. Patrick was buttass in love with Grace from the beginning but it was done in such a perfect way. Grace and Patrick had their moments of slight angst but, overall, they are the romance couple to give you a nice break from all the other romance couple who make you crazy. Or at least that's what they were to me.
Ending Babble: I love C.H. Admirand. Contemporary romance authors very rarely make my favorite authors list but Admirand is on it. Her books remind me very much of Jill Shalvis. Small town romances with perfectly loveable characters and interesting stories. This book was perfection. Grace and Patrick were so perfect together and they were so well written, the town is full of interesting characters and the writing is excellent. I highly recommend that you pick up this one. Or any C.H. Admirand book.
