I like the story a lot but just didn’t quite WOW me to become one of my favorite stories. But it was a fun read and I enjoyed it. I like small town romances a lot as I was brought up in a small town. I liked how Emmy was determined to to keep the farm no matter what it took. I also liked how she was determined to block Christopher in finding a fake girlfriend at the wedding. I also liked the fact Emmy finally tells Christopher the real reason she didn’t go to Fiji with him. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
