Having lived in NY City and the metropolitan area surrounding all of my life I know how fast spaced life can be. Everyone is always in a rush to do everything, everything that is, even when it comes to finding love and getting a serious relationship going. Guys are continuously on the prowl to add another name into their black books and if they can’t kiss the girl they’re with the first time out, they’ll most probably consider her a lost cause.
I know how hard it is to be transported to the country with a silence that allows you to hear the birds singing and the crickets chirping. I know how it is to have even the neighborhood Chinese takeout and other stores closing their doors by nine o’clock. Which is why, when the author allowed me to step into Emily’s shoes, I became somewhat envious of the relationship she had forming with Bret; a relationship, unlike those in the city, is allowed to start off with a glowing ember before developing into a small flame.
Bret, when it comes to his personality, is definitely a breath of fresh air as far as Emily is concern. Not only does Bret grow on Emily, so does the wilderness, as she develops a special fondness for both.
Ms. Herrick’s writing adds to the enjoyment in reading this book as you can almost smell the fresh, unpolluted air of the wilderness the story is taking place in; as well as having a wonderful character development for its two main characters; which is why I’ve given this book 5 STARS.
I received an e-book copy of this book through a giveaway on the YAInsider website and the above has been my honest opinion.
