To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was one of the most adorable books I’ve read in a long time. I loved the way it started with an interaction of correspondences between the hero and heroine. So much happened in those letters; they told of their bond of friendship which they didn’t know at the time would lead to more. Nicola is the type of heroine everyone likes because she goes after what she desires. Sometimes being so determined ends up with her embroiled in a scandal. Although she seemed like a nothing-could-bother-her sort of woman, my heart broke for her a few times during the story. Thomas is a man with a sad past, and this gives him depth, allowing the reader to understand what motivates him to do what he does, even though it was not a good thing. Nicola ended up surprising me by being more than she portrayed herself to be. Their process of moving from friendship to something more was so romantic (I’m smiling as I recall that moment).
Though short, this is a very good romantic story. Told in part through letters over the expanse of several years, two friends through misunderstandings eventually find love. Enjoyed this story very much. I just discovered Dean last fall, but she's already on my list of authors TBR.
I liked how part of the story is told through letters between Nicola and Thomas over several years. The characters of Nicola and Thomas appealed to me and made me want to finish their story in one sitting. I wasn't disappointed with this story of friends who find that they complete each other.
