Willow by Grace Parks
A bubbly personality and a great job in social media didn’t mean that Willow Lawson had it all. Her love life was distant memory and her social life only work related. The maddening demands of life seemed to get in the way of finding time for herself or her friends.
She starts the Pepper Lane Club as a chance to step away from her busy schedule once a month to reconnect with her friends.
Thomas Greer, the proprietor of the Pepper Lane Café, annoys her. He’s her complete opposite; unsociable, serious, old-fashioned and dead set against social media.
Always game for a challenge, Willow decides to take him on as a client. She’s going to prove to Thomas that he needs her help. She knew she would be successful, she just didn’t know she would lose her heart along the way.
Can Willow fall in love with a man that doesn’t respect her profession? Will Thomas let go of his preconceptions long enough to get to know the real Willow? Enjoy this sweet romance as Willow finds love and friendship in the first book in the Pepper Lane Series.
Six women. Six stories. Six chances of love. One café.
The Pepper Lane Series follows the lives of six women as they share life, love and heartache once a month at the Pepper Lane Club. They might be an unlikely group of friends, but it takes all types to form a tribe.
What a delightful romantic comedy. I was hoping this book would be entertaining, funny, and lift me out from the doldrums I found myself in. It did just that – and more.
Comical, light-hearted, witty, clever, it was an absolute delight to read.
The characters are familiar and relatable, and on occasion the reader will feel they are sitting chatting with a bunch of friends. The author’s easy style, and a story that hooks you in and keeps you glued to the page, made this a read-in-one-sitting book. I’m generally not into ‘sweet’, but at the risk of needing an insulin shot, this is one of the sweetest romances I’ve read in a long time.
Willow and Thomas were charming and amusing, Thomas came across as a very pleasant, bright, and appealing young man. I liked Willow, but there were times when I wanted to slap her, especially when she was being thoughtless or argumentative, however her verbal skills were awesome. She ‘bantered like a don’, to quote a friend.Following their romance was a reading pleasure.
Grace Parks has a very droll and clever turn of phrase. I definitely had a heavy set boss (male) for whom this is a perfect description:
We turned around to the sound of our boss, who had snuck up on us like a thief in the night.
Perfect for any time of the year, brilliant as a pick-me-up, and ideal as a holiday read, I highly recommend Willow by Grace Parks, a thoroughly amusing and entertaining romance.
From Grace, with Love…
Grace Parks is a sweet romance / chick lit author with a penchant for the happily ever after.
