This was such a great story! I loved the relationships, both romantic and friendly, and I enjoyed the storyline. This is a story that just made my heart feel full and happy! It funny, but tackles life topics that can be easily related to.
The characters in this book are amazing, and you truly become friends with them as you read. They all have their own special traits that make them so endearing. There are things that can be unlikable at times, but since no one is perfect, I like to see that in a character.
I thought this plot was really great. The entire story flowed so well, and just made it easy to settle onto the couch and keep flipping those pages! This is a great book for readers that enjoy chick lit with some romance!
Where to Find This Book:
Phronsie Linnelle was conceived at Woodstock in a serendipitous liaison between a free-spirited hippie and a farmer’s son and was born with magical wonder flickering in her DNA and rationality knit into her bones. All her life she’s been torn between the two. But now that she’s been betrayed by both love and the mother she once idolized, her rational side is winning.
So when her best friend from childhood proposes that they give up on romance and marry each other, Phronsie agrees. Who better to spend your life with than your best friend? Maybe the connection they already have is love. Maybe there’s no falling to be done. But immediately after they announce their engagement, she encounters someone who makes a very charming and compelling argument for revisiting romance.
While her even-keeled stepmother argues for the safety that comes with her new engagement and her mother relays messages from the universe to hold out for true love, Phronsie must look to her own heart to find the answers that have been there all along.
