ABOUT THE BOOK






Emma Burcelli has suffered over a decade of dating disasters. But she concludes that love is officially dead when her grandfather Poppi suddenly passes, leaving her grandmother Nona devastated. To help out, Emma works in the family bookstore, which Nona insists must be decked out in sweetheart d├ęcor as Poppi would have done for Valentine's Day. Although she feels like a V-Day Scrooge, Emma quickly learns to enjoy the task with the help of a handsome family friend, Lane Forester, who shows her that hanging hearts is much more fun when done to the tune of Dean Martin. As Emma and Lane share time and memories of Poppi, she reconsiders the notion that romance is alive.



My thoughts:

i thought this was a cute little novel. but little was an understatement it was too short to even get any ounce of anything out of it. yeah you had a story but by the time you had a story it was gone. it was good but needed to be longer for sure.

i was provided this book in exchange for my review. i wasn't compensated in anyway
