THE SWEETHEART FIX
This book is just as cozy and sweet as the title suggests. You know how it goes: ”He was a (cow)boy. She was a girl. Can I make it any more obvious?” But will these two have their happy ending after all? Will a woman that has two and a half engagements behind her be able to say ”yes” to a new lover – and stay, this time? And him: will he be able to get over his commitment issues and for once take a relationship seriously and voice his feelings?
This book is so sweet, cozy, family-oriented, and heartwarming. It’s such a light story – perfect for falling-leaves weather! That our two MCs have a thing for each other is a no-brainer from page one, but how (or if) they overcome their obstacles is what we need to wait for and see. And if only it were and outside obstacle, like long distance, work, or whatever, that they have to deal with, but it’s themselves they have to fight!
Juliet is a town sweetheart and a relationship counselor, or at least she tries to be, but her own misfortune in that area kind of gets in the way. Jack is the town mayor and the opposite of Juliet. While she has no problem warming up to people’s hearts and solving any issue like a good fairy, Jack is not exactly a natural, although he is trying! Honestly, this book gave me such Hallmark movie vibes. A light rom-com to watch and relax on a Sunday afternoon, cozied up in a blanket, with a cup of coffee nearby and a vanilla-scented candle on the table, while it’s raining outside.
The book talks about mental health, as well. That annoyed me a bit because I don’t take that topic lightly. I feel like, in this case, it was explored in a shallow way and kind of romanticized. I hate to say it, but it really bothered me. It might not be an issue for others, though!
If you plan to read this book, you should know that it is a part of the Blossom Glen series, but it is a standalone. The other book in the series is The Sweetheart Deal. This title – The Sweetheart Fix – is out November 29th.
