I knew right at the beginning of this book that I wouldn't be able to put it down until the very last page. I was right. I read this book in one sitting, and I have to thank my children for keeping themselves busy while I lost myself in the small town of Hopeful.
Like all small towns Hopeful is full of funny and quirky characters, and these characters added to feel of the book. There were numerous laugh out loud moments and many those were caused by those characters. I loved Marissa's parents, her menopausal mother was hilarious and her father was lost in his own little world. I enjoyed Marissa and Connor, I found their love/hate relationship funny and entertaining. Mainly I found their chemistry spot on.
I don't really have any complaints. Ok, one. It was too short of a book!
