After being lucky enough to receive an ARC of Hogle’s first book, I knew I had to add this to my list as soon as I heard about it. This was so stinking adorable I couldn’t help but love it. I loved that two people who have been hurt and have trouble coping in the world can come together despite the issues they’re facing. Wesley is everything good and sweet in this world.
Wes and Maybell are so relatable. Wes is a bit prickly, and Maybell is outgoing and bubbly, and they couldn’t be better suited for each other. Twice Shy is fun and sweet and a book that you can read in less than a day because you get so drawn into the storyline and the characters. I love how well Hogle writes relationships and characters that share so much with the reader. Nicely done!
Twice Shy is available on Amazon for $11.99.
About the Book:
Can you find real love when you’ve always got your head in the clouds?
Maybell Parish has always been a dreamer and a hopeless romantic. But living in her own world has long been preferable to dealing with the disappointments of real life. So when Maybell inherits a charming house in the Smokies from her Great-Aunt Violet, she seizes the opportunity to make a fresh start.
Yet when she arrives, it seems her troubles have only just begun. Not only is the house falling apart around her, but she isn’t the only inheritor: she has to share everything with Wesley Koehler, the groundskeeper who’s as grouchy as he is gorgeous–and it turns out he has a very different vision for the property’s future.
Convincing the taciturn Wesley to stop avoiding her and compromise is a task more formidable than the other dying wishes Great-Aunt Violet left behind. But when Maybell uncovers something unexpectedly sweet beneath Wesley’s scowls, and as the two slowly begin to let their guard down, they might learn that sometimes the smallest steps outside one’s comfort zone can lead to the greatest rewards.
