Just delightful. I’ve met all the Brown sisters and it’s no easy decision to choose a favourite, so I’m not going to! However, I think perhaps this book is my favourite of the three in this series. 

Loved:
• the cute B&B setting
• the 🔥 connection between Eve and Jacob
• the nuanced exploration of how hard it can be to understand, accept, and love all parts of yourself
• all of the witty quips a girl could wish for
• perfect balance of tenderness and humour

If there were 5 more Brown sisters I wouldn’t be mad about it. A favourite of the year for sure!

 This book made me fall in love with the idea of love and reconsider the way that I view my autism diagnosis— this book makes me feel so so so beautiful for it. I made the mistake of picking up this book while I was out picking up stuff to help me move and spent my packing time reading this book in one sitting. I recommend it to everyone I really love and think about rereading it every time I pick up a new book.

Super cute book!! This was the first Brown sisters book I’ve read (by accident, I’ll probably go back and read the others now!), and I really enjoyed it. Initially I had a tough time getting into the style of the writing, but once I realized they were british and got used to it, I liked the author’s style. It’s pretty cute and fluffy (the pond scene🥺🥺), also a lot spicier than I initially expected! A lot of Eve’s struggles really hit home for me as well, so I personally related/enjoyed reading that. It’s a little formulaic and there’s not a whole lot of plot, but all the characters are very lovable and it’s a good romance, so I don’t mind! Would definitely recommend :)

Talia Hibbert’s work pulls me out of my funk. This is the lighthearted and sexy read that I needed with what all that’s going on. Eve’s story of not feeling good enough and fearing failure resonated with me. Not everyone experience their coming of age once in their late teens. Some go thru it again and again, so I’m glad that Eve learned so much of herself, found a career and her person that she loves. 

Btw my first Talia Hibbert book was Dani Brown, which makes this the second Brown sister book that I’ve read. Can’t wait to read Chloe Brown! And lastly, I wonder if Talia would write about Gigi and Shivani’s elderly lesbian/pansexual palace - I’d definitely love to read that!
