We are having colder than usual weather here in Southern California this year and it is the perfect weather for curling up with a book!❄️
An absolute delight! this is the second book in this trilogy of stories featuring Clara, and the 24th book in this lovely series. you absolutely do not need to have read the entire series to enjoy this book, but I strongly encourage you to read the book prior to this to completely understand Clara’s story. In the prior book Clara reunites with her high school crush Rory and the will they, won’t they commences. In this story Clara’s stepsister swoops in and complicates things. But is Rory what Clara’s heart wants? we learn a bit about Clara’s background and her relationship with her family in the story. her mom and stepsister we’re not easy to like, to say the least. as in the previous book I found Clara so likable and relatable, I was really wanting nothing but the absolute best for her. cannot wait to see how things are wrapped up in this charming trilogy within this lovely larger series.
PS: once again the LDP girls make a small appearance, always good to see them!
*** Big thank you to for my gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own. ***
