About the Book: Melody’s work as a hospice nurse both gives her life purpose and rips her heart out when her patients die. Her latest client left her his lakeside home. After years of living in foster homes, Melody seizes the opportunity for a real home.
Her happy residence comes to an abrupt halt when her benefactor’s missing nephew, Levi, shows up. A bomb shattered his leg and life, which left him in need of a safe place to figure out the rest of his life. The will leaves the house to both of them, but only if they cohabit for a year. Otherwise, the house goes to a third party.
Melody detests Levi for never writing or visiting his dying uncle. Levi considers Melody little more than a gold digger similar to his ex-wife. There’s no way he’ll let her have his inheritance. [Description from Goodreads.com]
My Review: I'm going to start this review off with what didn't work for me, that way we can end on the high notes that are what I really enjoyed. The thing that made me second guess myself the entire time I was reading this book was the pacing. It was tough for me to figure out exactly how much time had passed every time we moved to a new scene. Beside that, some of the conclusions that Melody and Levi jump to seemed a little far-fetched. But despite these fall backs, I kept reading because this is a legitimately good story, and I wanted to know what would happen to Levi and Melody.
This is my first book by author Morgan K. Wyatt, but it will not be my last. I like the writing style, and how real her characters feel. Despite the fanciful way Melody and Levi are thrown together (is what his uncle did even legal?) - I loved to see how they would handle such a difficult situation. They felt genuine, and it was fascinating to see how they struggled separately, as well as how they struggled to come together.
At just over 200 pages, this is one of those short-and-sweet books. It was a perfect read for an evening curled up on the couch. And certainly lifted my spirits despite the gloomy weather!
Cover Lovin': Simple, yet elegant.
Recommendation: Definitely a good one-sitting read.
Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars (3.5/5)!! A great read for a gloomy day. The characters felt like good friends and I loved watching their story unfold.
