Title: Love on a Spring Morning
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
i have to admit i was a little nervous about starting this book. i was afraid the pain would be hard to read and while it was very emotional at times it wasn’t too painful to read. it was actually a really sweet story most of the time.
ryan was understandably very grumpy a lot of the time. he was downright mean to holly a few times. he quickly became a really great father for his grieving kids. he was having a hard time dealing with not only his grief but being a full-time single dad and making sure they didn’t drown in their grief. he has basically shut down emotionally – he wasn’t very open before his wife died. we saw glimpses of his sweet, playful personality after he meets holly but he seems almost bipolar at times because he was really either really hot or really cold.
i really liked holly a lot. she had every reason not to be personable or likeable but she was both. her miserable upbringing had her pretty closed off emotionally as did her life in the spotlight. she was basically 2 people in one – her public persona and her private one. in reality, she was really sweet but really lonely.
their relationship was a slow build but endearing. overall, it was a really great read.
She lives in London, Ontario and is currently chugging Americanos, wiping sticky fingers, and dreaming of heroes in and out of uniform.
