“You might be crazy,” she whispered, “but you’re my kind of crazy.”
Finish Time: 4 nights. Another Amazon free download. 4 in a row – going back to NetGalley next (or maybe my new Kindle First read!). This was a cute, entertaining read. Good summer book, nothing too heavy. Romance, mystery, weddings, crazy neighbors and dogs, this book has lots to keep it interesting!
Kendall “Ken” recently ended a messy marriage to Chris and has spent her time, and what little money she has, fixing up a B&B in Cape Cod. It’s getting close to peak season when the story begins and Ken is putting the final touches on her house to open it up to a few booked weddings and hopefully many more. Surrounded by a great group of friends and other locals, when a new face shows up in town, everyone is talking.
Jon recently had some troubles of his own and retreated to Cape Cod to help with his uncle’s veterinary practice. Upon seeing Jon with his aunt for the first time, Ken makes some false assumptions, which leads to some humorous first encounters with Jon. Her friend Dorothy runs an animal shelter and asks Ken to take in a puppy named Midget temporarily. Also quite humorous, as Midget is a Saint Bernard, and does not fit his name at all.
The story progresses from there with some encounters with her non-dog loving new neighbor, maxed out credit cards, canceled orders, strangers in the backyard, and much more. Never a dull moment between the developing relationships between Ken & Jon, and Ken & Midget. A little mystery thrown in, a bit of suspense, make for another nice story. I toyed between 3-4 stars as I really have no complaints about this book, just really a nice, sweet, summer book!
Description from Amazon:
Kendall Roarke is betting everything on making her Harwichport Bed & Breakfast into the premier wedding destination on Cape Cod, despite her recent messy divorce.
Jonathan Reynolds moved back to the Cape to take over his uncle’s business and start fresh after his own marriage ended. He’s not looking for anything complicated – until he meets Kendall, with her big plans and wild mop of curls.
Throw an unruly foster puppy and an uptight new neighbor into the mix and things get a little crazy. Now Kendall has to decide if it’s the kind of crazy that she can live with… for the rest of her life.
