This is the first book I have read by Jo and I loved it. A little different and tamer than the books I normally read but great none the less. Iris is divorcee who is still trying to find herself after being divorced for about a year. She has a teen age daughter and that comes with its own issues when you aren’t divorced. Carter is a house flipper who has recently bought the house across from Iris. The two couldn’t be more different if they tried but they be just what the other needs. Iris is wound tighter than a top and Carter is completely laid back. The two soon form a somewhat unlikely friendship. Iris is attracted to Carter right from the start but she has so much on her plate already and no idea how her daughter would react to her beginning to date. Carter has his own reasons for not dating. But then something happens and he begins to see Iris differently. It takes some trying but he gets Iris to agree to go on a date with him. What happens in this book is funny, heart breaking, and so much more. You learn that not everything in this neighborhood is as it seems. Iris is a fantastic woman and mother who has been put through the ringer not only by her ex-husband. Her ex is a real piece of work. Carter sees things happening in Iris’s life in a new way and isn’t bogged down by knowing her for a long time to stop him from voicing his opinion and brings a new light to Iris’s life. I can’t recommend this book enough. I look forward to reading more books by Jo in the future.
I was given this book in return for an honest review.
