I won this book for an honest review from Goodreads. I haven't been able to read the rest of this series before this book, but I will for sure now. This book touched something in me that reminded me of my younger sister who also suffered from dyslexia. But I never tried to make her feel stupid and I think made a lot of difference. I knew reading was hard for her but she could do crafts like no tomorrow. Nathan always felt stupid because of his dyslexia and always called himself stupid because reading and looking at numbers always came jumbled between the paper and his brain. Having a twin who was really smart and didn't understand didn't help. He came home to help his father's construction business while he was sick. He is helping do a restaurant renovation for a family friend. Cheryl is a widow raising her young son after fleeing a brother in law who hurt her and her son. She is working at the B&B and going to culinary school. They meet because a drunk followed her into her building, but they are both are going to see a lot of each other because she works right next door to the construction sight. She understands him, but he doesn't want to look "stupid" in front of her. With a lot of ups and down and him finding out he is a father of a beautiful little girl. I loved the story and couldn't put it down.
