    This was my first (of many) Miranda MacLeod books… I have become a huge fan! She writes very entertaining novels. If you’re looking for hours of entertainment, this is the book for you! it is sweet, funny and sexy! Well worth it!
    I need to give props to the Narrator, Stephanie Murphy… She brings out the best in the Authors works!

    I like MacLeodโ€™s style of writing because of the light-heartedness of it all. And while this one lacked the humour that can be found in some of her other books, it still has the vibes of a holiday romance despite having something heavy like death in the backstory. And that is why I appreciate the storytelling here.

    Interestingly, grief wasn’t very much the focus but it was more the guilt that came with the death – Fiona’s guilt of not having been the best girlfriend to Alice before she died. This is the guilt that forces her to inherit a farm she didn’t want, to halt her professional singing career she so loved and to swear off dating even after meeting the love of her life. But I like Fiona, because if anything, she is honest with her feelings.

    I didnโ€™t like Paige quite as much. Paige is a wuss and I will continue to call her that for letting herself be strung along by her manipulative ex for so long. And the fact that she needed to leave the country entirely by swapping houses to avoid gravitating back to her just felt dumb.

    But I like this one-night-stand to lovers trope. The journey was fun. And I enjoyed listening to Stephanie Murphy try out different accents too. (Fiona is English and Paige is American). Oh, and I must say I love the idea of a house swap in theory. It’s a real thing (omg!) and the world continues to surprise me everyday.
