My Review: If you are looking for a wholesome romantic quick read to get you in the mood for Valentines day this is a great choice. Emma is an a woman who travels to her hometown to be with her Grandmother after her Grandfather's death. Her Grandfather loved to decorate the family bookstore for Valentine's Day so even though Emma does not share her Grandfather's enthusiasm for the holiday she decides to carry on the tradition in his honor. Decorating for Valentine's Day leads to a possible romance amidst some complex family issues. This story is cute and lighthearted and a perfect story for this time of year.
