This is a very short novella, around 80 pages, but it has everything needed to be a convincing love story with quite a hot sex scene included even ^^ - but the great thing is the deftness with which Kelly Hunter makes every character introduced individual and interesting - from heroine and hero, to Cal, to Mollie, to Roly and Arthur, to Simon - who should get his own book ^^.
Oh and of course Blue, the dog! - and Henry the puppy. The villains, past and present, are one-dimensional though, not much else to be done at this length, I would have thought. But even so it's a love story about coping with grief and going on with life and making a fresh start - without becoming didactic, I thought.
Well worth the price.
