This was just what you desire in a good Rom-Com book. I was in love with Rory from the start, his Death bed promise to his ailing Mum brought a lump to my throat. No attitude or clothing Make- over required in this reader’s mind !! Filled with great humour, truly abhorrent adversaries, audacious and knowing progeny and twinkly eyed elders. Littered with the misunderstandings that make tales of this type, you just wish sometimes people would learn to speak honest truths and damn the consequences!
This story was a quick and easy read because you care deeply for all the characters even if one of those emotion is revilement in the case of Firefighting, womanising errant fathers and mild disdain and judgement for vacuous business Reps (although she comes good in STELLAR Style, perhaps my favourite ever just deserts moment so far). I am very much a Rory -esque kind of woman so of course I side with the underdog, who is a true hero in every sense of the word and no inappropriate hose required!
It’s no surprise that nice guys do actually win fair ladies, but getting there has never been more amusing and enjoyable. An easy five stars!!
