I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Betsy St. Amant is the author of more than fifteen inspirational romances, including The Key to Love, and a frequent contributor to iBelieve.com. She lives in north Louisiana with her husband, two daughters, a collection of Austen novels, and an impressive stash of pickle-flavored Pringles.

Oh goodness. This was such a charming, sweet, original, beyond lovely love story. I enjoyed the way the story played out. The pacing was perfect, and I love how connected, but chaotic everything was.
The characters were so lovely. Rory is such a beautiful character. She is so realistic. She has so many real emotions and feelings, and her struggles are so natural. Her heart and compassion were so vivid throughout the book.
Jude was the perfect leading man. He is so motivated and a dreamer, but a complete romantic. There is so much integrity in his character, and his honesty was refreshing.
The side characters were the perfect compliments to the storyline. I loved the way some classics were woven throughout the novel as well.
Some epic one-liners will make you laugh out loud. This story is engaging, fun, sweet, infuriating, and impossible to put down—a whole new meaning to taco Tuesday. Get ready to swoon!
