What I posted on Goodreads: same as "my comments," below
A sweet romance that takes place between an American female and a British male set in Northumberland, England. She's a 5' 10" Shakespeare lover who rents and runs a quaint bookshop in a small village on the coast. He is a "farmer" with a Great Dane named Shadow that he adores. It follows the usual trajectory and at about 85% is when the huge conflict comes. This conflict was more ridiculous than most, this otherwise perfect man had lied to her about his age - he is six years younger - and financial status - he was rich and had a title - and this "lying" set her off. So stupid, imo. But it was a fun and entertaining read.
Not only is Evie swept up in running the delightful store as soon as she arrives, she's drawn into the lives, loves and drama of the friendly villagers. Including Roane Robson, the charismatic and sexy farmer who tempts Evie every day with his friendly flirtations. Evie is determined to keep him at bay because a holiday romance can only end in heartbreak, right? But Evie can't deny their connection and longs to trust in her handsome farmer that their whirlwind romance could turn in to the forever kind of love.
