I really enjoyed this book.
I really liked both main characters and I thought it was very honest and real how their feelings towards each other were written. The guilt, the longing etc.
Pacing was really good for me. According to Goodreads it is 224 pages, but I started reading, got dragged into it so much, looked up and was 80% through the book and had forgotten to put the Roast in for Easter Sunday!! (so we are having that today)
Quite frankly a book that makes me forget I need to you know, cook and feed my family has to be good!
However, it occasionally jumped to the next day or a few hours later, when I expected it not too. Such as when his father was talking to him and said that his mother would be talking to Quinn, I expected to go to that conversation, between Quinn and the mother, but it just sort of jumped ahead to the next day or something. And that happened a couple of times at least, and was quite jarring.
The added plot line of the husband of the woman she was helping, given the nature of her job etc, did not feel too far fetched, as can sometimes happen when you add that sort of character into a book, it fit and was used in a way to move their relationship forward.
All in a good makes me forget I need to cook for my family 4 stars! This was a first read by this author and I would love to read more.
