To review

A sweet short audiobook, without any major drama. I really liked that.

January is a single mum living in a town with mostly women in it. She loves her job, she loves her life, she loves her daughter. Life is good.

In moves a hunky British neighbor, a single one. And the town is a buzz with talk, everyone wants a date with Liam.

They meet, they see sparks, they become friends (she fears he wants kids and all that and she is happy as she is now.)I liked they slow yet fast romance, they are just meant to be, and when they see it then they see it.

Cute romance

It had two narrators. I did like the male narrator cos his Liam accent was gooood. The female narrator gave Liam a weird posh accent, not as sexy. I liked both their January voices. I did like the two POV view, one chapter here, one chapter there. It does work so well 

Just my luck - my new next door neighbor is a unicorn. Yep, the British hottie is clearly a mythical man because - get this - he's a sexy, witty, charming, big-hearted single dad. Who, wait for it, wants to find Mrs. Right and get hitched. He’s a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of man, and it’s a darn shame I’m not on the market. If I were, his accent alone would melt me. Add in the fact that he's a veterinarian, and my animal-loving heart would be flip flopping.

But my heart's on the mend. I'm a single parent like him, and raising my teenage daughter is my top priority. Plus, falling for a guy who shares your property line is a line you shouldn’t cross. Still, I'm an outgoing gal, so I do the neighborly thing and offer to be his dating insider. Surely, I can help this small town’s most eligible bachelor ever navigate his way through all the fantastic single ladies eager to make his acquaintance.

What could possibly go wrong in helping the dream guy next door find his one true love?

So I set him up on one date, two dates, three dates -- and I’m about to find out exactly how dangerous my offer is.

Does sound like a cute. A mostly women village would be interesting.
