Book Description:
They say you form your first impression of someone within thirty seconds of meeting them. Or, in Mira Parrish's case, within thirty minutes of not meeting them, when said person is supposed to pick you up from the airport and never shows. This is not a perfect start to her new life. Her
friend Ivy is depending on her to run a new romance store, and Mira can't afford to let her down.

Sam Lyons should probably apologize. But every time he sees Mira--which is often, since his family owns the bakery next to her shop--he can't resist antagonizing her. There's something about the sexy, straight-laced woman that drives him crazy. He can't get involved, though. He has too much baggage to be any good in a serious relationship.

Despite his teasing attitude, Mira finds Sam too sweet to resist. (His hot body may be a factor.) But if there's going to be anything permanent between them, they'll need to let go of their pasts and look to the future...


Chanel’s Review:
A Fine Romance is a good light read about starting over and rethinking where your life is headed.

Essentially it is about a woman that comes from a privileged background, but wants to prove herself and make it on her own. Mira Parrish moves to Chicago to do just that, while at the same time helps her friend start a business called A Fine Romance.

The chemistry between Mira and Sam Lyons starts of shaky and it took me a bit to understand it.  He left her stranded at an airport in a new city on a rainy day and doesn’t seem to feel bad about doing so instead acting like she should be falling at his feet in honor of his good looks.  It was a bit hard to take but I went with it, especially after she spills her drink over his head. That was funny.

Sam made a promise to his father on his deathbed to take care of his mother and he takes it a bit to the extreme, although his mother is having episodes that are worrisome, it would have been easier for all around if he’d talk to her about it instead of keeping the secret of the promise to himself.  Although I wanted to shake the silly man, I also admired his sense of duty.

A Fine Romance will make a reader laugh and sigh at the romantic bits and also relate to the many issues that people have to deal with in real life.  Good story line that will keep you interested. Definite don’t read this book if you’re hungry.

I recommend chocolate, lots of chocolate and a wine glass full of Merlot while listening to Feeling Good by Michael Bublé.  Reviewed by Chanel of Chanel Chancey Reviews) – I Read, I Review, That’s It!
