I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Once again, I’m reading a genre that is very unlike me! I never read adult romance novels, usually because I have trouble finding clean ones, but I couldn’t resist the cute cover! It’s much better than the covers that most adult romances have. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this book! The best part is that it was the first in a series of romance books that all take place in the same small town so I’m looking forward to seeing some of the other characters get their love stories later!
Dr. Daniel Durand is currently working at the hospital in the small town of Timber Falls. One day, he runs into a midwife/nurse named Winifred Baker who also happens to be the daughter of his supervisor. Immediately, he begins his efforts to win her over, usually involving comic books or superheroes. Meanwhile, Winifred has got a lot on her mind and she doesn’t really need the added attention of this young doctor to distract her. It becomes quite clear that she is unable to ignore him. However, she is several years older than him which bothers her. When she needs a date to a good friend’s wedding, a wedding that her very cringey and obnoxious ex will be attending, she’s forced to find someone in the small town who will go with her.
I absolutely loved this book! The main characters, as well as the side characters, were all so cute and fun to read about! Besides the very adorable romance, the family relationships as well as friendships were also a huge part of the story and I really enjoyed it! Daniel is such a sweetheart and all the dorky superhero references were cute! Winifred can be slightly upsetting at times, but she is under a lot of stress so I don’t fault her for it. Her ex is obnoxious; I think he’s the worst character in the entire book. In the end, not only the romance was great, but all the relationships, struggles, and interactions were truly well done! I’m very excited for the next book (with some characters I already liked in the first book!) I would definitely recommend this book to romance fans, but it is somewhat of an insta love so be prepared for that.
