Title: Much Ado About You
Author: Samantha Young
Release Date: February 2, 2021
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.
Evie is so tired of her life. The dating game is ridiculous, her job of many years is a joke and her slight jealousy of her best friend is the topping on the cake of disaster! So she leaves it all behind for a perfect vacation to the English countryside (I mean why not). She is beyond ecstatic with the perfect little town, until Roane Robson that is. He's charming, funny and utterly gorgeous which is a complication she does not need. Evie puts up her walls but eventually lets Roane in even though she knows there's nothing but hurt waiting for her at the end of her vacation because it can truly only lead to heartache as far as she's concerned.
Running away to a foreign land to run a cozy bookstore has always been a fantasy of mine, and if you're a true lover of books you've probably felt the same at one point in your life. For most of us that will never be a possibility so what's the next best thing? Reading Much Ado About You!
I love how perfect this quaint little town is with its unique mix of characters. There was not one instance while reading this book that I was not completely engaged in the story. I was not only rooting for this couple but also the other relationships too! There was never a Young book that I didn't love and Much Ado About You is no exception.
