Forever (Grand Central Publishing)
Description of book:
Montana real estate agent Quint McCoy will tell you that the most important thing is location, location, location. It’s a lesson he learns all too well when he goes incommunicado for a four-week fishing trip to Alaska. While he’s away, his mother Molly turns his office into the pie shop she has always dreamed of, Big Sky Pie. But that’s not the only surprise in store for him.
On her way out of town, Callee McCoy only wants to say a fond farewell to her beloved mother-in-law. But Molly soon persuades Callee to stay and lend a hand at the new shop, even if it means heating up the kitchen with her soon-to-be ex. As Callee and Quint rediscover their recipe for love, they realize that some couples are so sinfully good together that one delectable taste is never enough . . .
While this had all the makes of a cute story – re-discovering love gone wrong, etc, there was just something about the characters of Callee and Quint and his mother that didn’t make me like them. Both of them seemed juvenile and impatient. He upped and left on a 4 week fishing trip – to deal with his father’s death, and not keeping in touch with either his wife or mother. His mother went and summarily turned his office into a pie shop! And Callee decides to leave Quint and town. Believe me, the story wore thin quite fast and the explicit romantic scenes didn’t help.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
