    Sami grew up in the small town of Elk Lake Minnesota and has always designed clothes She decides to move to New York and make it big as a fashion designer The main love interest for Sami is a vital part of the story but isn t mentioned often in the novel I was disappointed in the novel because I believe even though she grew up in a small town that she still should have had some common sense and no

    This is a nice, casual read When I was younger, I read several of the books in this Romantic Comedy sort of collection I d say they all do a fairly good job of telling an enjoyable and cute yet predictable story I imagine fans of hallmark movies would appreciate the storyline of these books.

    Fun, mindless read One of those books you read when you don t want anything with a complicated storyline you basically just want a cheesy chick flick story.

    Seeing as the backs of these Romantic Comedies usually provide too much or not accurate enough information, I try not to read them until I ve read the book I did that with this one, and now see that the entire plot was on the back of the book Only, for some odd reason, our heroine s hunk Vin, for those of you wondering on the front cover is NOT mentioned.Okay, so you re undoubtly thinking, get to the book already, but he
