Well I might have overdone it with my Netgalley requesting. I seem to have lost all self control and received way too many books. However, I have somehow found a way to tackle my Netgalley shelf and get a lot of arcs read this month ahead of publication!
So without further ado ;), I bring you my review of Much Ado About You by Samantha Young.
At thirty-three-years old Evangeline Starling’s life in Chicago is missing that special something. And when she’s passed over for promotion at work, Evie realizes she needs to make a change. Some time away to regain perspective might be just the thing. In a burst of impulsivity, she plans a holiday in a quaint English village. The holiday package comes with a temporary position at Much Ado About Books, the bookstore located beneath her rental apartment. There’s no better dream vacation for the bookish Evie, a life-long Shakespeare lover.
Not only is Evie swept up in running the delightful store as soon as she arrives, she’s drawn into the lives, loves and drama of the friendly villagers. Including Roane Robson, the charismatic and sexy farmer who tempts Evie every day with his friendly flirtations. Evie is determined to keep him at bay because a holiday romance can only end in heartbreak, right? But Evie can’t deny their connection and longs to trust in her handsome farmer that their whirlwind romance could turn in to the forever kind of love.
First and foremost I would like to thank Netgalley and Berkley Publishing for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
As ya’ll can probably tell from what I have read so far this month, I have been on a rom com kick. I tend to find rom coms the easiest to read on my kindle, so that is generally what I request the most of from Netgalley.
So, when I saw this book show up I knew I had to request it. And I am so glad that I did! This was such a fun read that I finished in just two sittings.
As you know, both Thi and I are always looking for a book that provides more than just a romance, and this book was no exception. I thought it brought up important issues of addiction and what it can do to family relationships.
Now on to the romance. I absolutely adored Evie and Roane, and their relationship was a pleasure to watch unfold over time. I really enjoy books that don’t have insta love and found this one to feel very realistic. It felt genuine and easy to root for.
Lastly, the setting of this book on the English countryside was something I never knew I needed. This story makes me want to pack up and move to a small English town and run a bookstore. Maybe in another life 😉
All in all this was a fun, quick, and enjoyable read. So be sure to check it out and head to your local bookstore on February 2nd to pick up your copy, you won’t regret it!
