What a fabulous book! Manees is one of my favorite authors. This is an unusual romance in that the heroine is a plus size grandmother and the hero is a grandfather before the book’s end. But these two mature people are anything but stodgy or passé! Their romance is lively and passionate. The interaction with their children and grandchildren gives the book a generational perspective most romances don’t have. The book is written in Manees’ signature style with a wry sense of humor that in places had me laughing out loud. At other points her touching scenes had me almost in tears. I saw on her website that this author had been so long between releases due to illness. I am so happy to see Manees’ return to the writing world and I look forward to enjoying her work once again.
