Another volume in the Love Finds You series. Another that I liked. A fun little read for rainy days. (And it's been raining for a weeks straight.) I like how the author set her book in her town. Even though I am a city girl through and through, Carlson made the small town of Sisters, Oregon actually appealing. I kind of want to visit. Visit, I said, not move there. The characters were fun and colorful. I really felt the depth of emotion connected to the story. My only problem: once again we get sickeningly sweet and happy ending. The family went from fighting and bitterness to happiness in about a week. Definitely does not happen that quick in real life. And the book ended with a marriage proposal (it's not a spoiler, I saw it coming from the first 20 pages) after only a few weeks of dating. Another quick wrap-up. Overall, I liked the story. I just could do without the last chapter.
