A widow at twenty-six, Primrose Bloom returns to idyllic Good Hope, Wisconsin, with her two rambunctious young boys, seeking the beauty of the lakeside landscape and the comfort of home. After the loss of her husband and her job, all she’s looking for is peace.
Prim is resolved not to date again until her boys are in college, but her will starts crumbling whenever she’s around her former high school debate partner, Max Brody—who just happens to live in the charming cottage next door. Max has reservations of his own about giving love a second chance and is determined to keep his distance. But when the two pair up to work on the town’s Fourth of July celebration, the fireworks over Green Bay aren’t the only sparks flying. Are Prim and the small-town boy she left behind perfectly wrong for each other…or perfectly right?
After finishing SIGH, I was thoroughly pleased with it and I enjoyed it so much more than Ami and Becks story, not that I didn’t like there’s, because I did, I just enjoyed Prim and Max’s a lot more.
One thing I really liked about this story is how Max has loved Prim for years, but never acted on his feelings because she belongs to another. Max was a great enjoyable hero. He was tender and protective of Prim and he enjoyed his time with her six year old twins Callum and Conner, which they adored Max and thrived on the attention he bestowed upon them.
I however didn’t really care for Rory’s parents, especially Deb, as she was a bit pushy with Prim, telling her how to run her home and how she shouldn’t date or remarry until the boys are grown or better yet, she’s best off to not remarry at all. But at the end, she sorta makes up for her behavior, embracing Prim’s decision to move on with her life.
I also did enjoy the little tidbits of Marigold and Cade, which I can’t wait to start their book and learn all the juicy details of their story.
