4.5 stars for The Inn on Gooseneck Lane by Delsora Lowe #holidayromance #romance #bookreview

Title: The Inn on Gooseneck Lane

Author: Delsora Lowe

Genre: Contemporary Romance (Sweet, Small Town, Second Chance, Holiday, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve)

Book Blurb:

Nat Thomas calls Mistletoe Falls, Vermont home where summers were magical, her aunt became the parent she needed, and high school love bloomed. Sixteen years later, that love lost, Nat returns home for a much-needed break. She’s recruited to revitalize her aunt’s picturesque inn. Will the boy who broke her heart be the man who rallies to save her home and capture her heart…for good?

Brad Matthews returns home to buy Green Mountain Sports, after years as an outdoor adventure guide. He’s thrown into partnering an event to revive the town’s inn and boost his business. Can he work with the woman who demolished his heart and ran with no explanation?

In a small town where everyone knows your business and interfering relatives revive snicker-doodling, the lost art of matchmaking, Nat and Brad may not stand a chance. Can the two find enough heart to forgive and accept love again?

My Review:

A book about lost love and trying to find it again. This is a book about Nat and Brad and their work at romance.

Here, romance is presented more like a chore than something simple.

That their romance was destroyed when young by Nat's Dad was cold. That he has never been held accountable is mind boggling.

I had to ask my boss if we only give 5-star reviews here and was told no, we give what we think a book deserves.

The romance is extremely slow burn. The end result will satisfy a reader who makes it all the way along this journey.

My single issue is that Nat needed to severely hold her Dad accountable and I didn't see that.

It is the holiday time of the year so I wanted to offer my wish list for Nat: This is what I would buy her...self-respect, guts, self-esteem, courage, common sense, decisiveness, pride, a good appetite.

It is never clear whether Nat suffers from a disease that affects her eating. If that is true, that I am sad for her. If she just isn't eating because it's part of her thing, then she needs to give her head a shake.

A book that is centered on Christmas and really puts the reader into the Christmas season. If you are a fan of this author, you will want to get this book today. If you are a fan of second chance romance, then this would be for you too.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
