In this romantic, funny, and heartwarming classic novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag poignantly captures one eventful summer in the life of a woman facing the ultimate relationship dilemma.
It took only one look for Genna Hastings to make up her mind about her new next-door neighbor, J. J. Hennessy. She knew his type all too well: Jared Jay Hennessy was tall and handsome, a man who thought he was God’s gift to women. From the pink flamingos dotting his front yard to the all-night boozy barbecues, he threatened to disrupt Genna’'s peaceful summer off from teaching. But beneath his carefree smile and teasing nature, J.J. was a man as serious about the future as he was about Genna. He’d come to this quiet Connecticut town to change his life, and he challenged Genna to help him become Mr. Right. It was a challenge she knew she’d be smart to refuse... and one J.J. knew she couldn'’t resist.
Tami Hoag is a new author for me. When doing research before reading this book, this book was one of her first writings. She is now more popularly known as a suspense writer. I think those books are a little 'dark' for me, but this book was a nice 'light' romance book. Not too 'sugary' sweet. I enjoyed it. I might browse her other books to see if there might be a suspense book that would interest me, as I do like romantic suspense books, but not too 'dark'. But if you are looking for a new author and a light, quick romantic read, this book is it. I highly recommend.
