Why did I love this book?
I’m not one to read a book twice, but this is one of those rare gems I go back to every once in a while.
Personally, I loved that the hero, Ted Beaudine, is more of an antihero in his aloofness and—kinda justified—vendetta against the heroine. Now, if an author can convince me to like a dislikable hero, I will sing about their book from the rooftops. So, here I am, singing.
Without giving too much away, Phillips does a masterful job of breathing life into her small-town Texas setting, as well as humanity into some truly surprising characters.
This is one of those books to kick back with and enjoy all the tingly good feels that will inevitably come.
