I really enjoyed this! Erica Ridley is so good at creating characters who are strong individuals with flaws and then matching them so they bring out the best in one another and inspire one another to be better.
Here we have Unity, determined to become a self-made woman despite her losses, and Lambley, who insists on controlling every minute detail in his life. Together they learn to loosen up (I LOVED Unity’s idea for “Planned Spontaneity Days”) and let go of some of the details.
Lambley reminds me strongly of Mr. Darcy here because he takes what Unity says to heart, learns from it, and changes his behavior accordingly. That is what makes him truly swoon-worthy.
It was a warm, cozy, delightful read and I loved every minute (as always – I have yet to meet an Erica Ridley book I did not like).
