I am absolutely amazed and blown away by Joyce DeBacco's work. Her characters really gripped me and the plot line sucked me in instantly. I was swept away to the front of the Serendipity House, and I stayed there for the duration. There was no turning back once I started.
I truly enjoyed Sylvie's character. She was created normal. What do I mean by that? Well, for starters, some author's make their characters unrealistically, meaning they seem entirely too 'fakey.' Not so with Sophie's character. She had flaws, she had personality, and she had heart. All of those combined truly made a wonderful character.
With Sylvie, I could feel her struggles, her emotions, her thoughts. Much like Sylvie, I've always tried to please others before myself. Unlike Sylvie, I never acted on it; but Sylvie did, and the fun began, especially when she entered the doors of the inn.
Next comes Alex. Wow. I REALLY wanted to be Sylvie. Try as she might, she found him utterly attractive and irresistible. I totally wanted an Alex by the end of the story. His character was quirky and lovable and fit the part perfectly.
I highly recommend this awesome book. Sylvie, Alex, and all their new friends really make the story come to life for the reader. Mixed into the whirlwind of romance is a touch of mystery, making this the perfect fireplace read, on this getting-colder nights. Well done, Ms. DeBacco!

As the first reviewer stated, these characters are REAL! I loved the setting and the way Ms. DeBacco turned your thoughts to what she was trying to tell you.
I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves "Cozy" reads. I just wish I had a wide porch with rockers.
I could see some things coming in the story and not so much the others!
Check it out! You won't be disappointed! And Oh Yes, I want an Alex too!
