Hooked on You.

When her grandmother injures herself sliding into third base, Riley McAllister must return to her small hometown to help run the family yarn store in this sweet, lighthearted romantic comedy.

My Thoughts:

I just want to live in Maple Falls! Kathleen Fuller manages to make this place feel like home for anyone who has lived in and loved a small town.

Though this book is a romance, it’s the whole cast of characters that really makes the story work. I could see them all gathering for softball practice or hanging out at Erma’s yarn shop, and I just wanted to be part of their community. Riley was a bit of a hard sell simply because she’s so adamant about pushing people away, but I loved the way her people loved on her despite the difficulty. Because of the feel of the novel, it reads like a Hallmark movie. Which is a compliment because I love Hallmark movies!

Hooked on You isn’t a light read by any means, but it skirts on the edge of depth. Fuller created a gold mine of emotional nuances with these characters and I would have liked more development of certain aspects, but overall this book delivers a sweet contemporary romance with elements of faith.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. All expressed opinions belong to me.

Book Boyfriend:

Hayden. He’s so patient and friendly that it’s hard not to love him. He certainly doesn’t have an easy road, but I love that he chooses to press forward in life rather than focusing on his loss. He deserves good things.
