"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it." - Oscar Wilde
Barely 3 stars because I couldn't get into it
This should have been a real hit for me. Books, and a bookstore, and a cute owner, and a writer. The writing was good, the voice was fine, I just never really connected to the MCs. And then it was over. It was sweet, it was okay for me, but not really more than that. Maybe with more background information? But that's not how a short story should work... I'm really not sure. But it got me started on the series and naturally I had to read the other installments then, so 3 stars rounded up.
