When Emma Mackie moves to a new neighborhood with her two nieces and meets Kevin Grantham, her next door neighbor, she feels they are worlds apart. He keeps doing things for her and makes her feel like a charity case. Kevin thus sees Emma as disorganized and irresponsible. In this regard, Kevin is the Prejudice while Emma is the Pride.
This book is an easy read. I felt as if I were watching a movie throughout the reading experience. This book shocked me, made me giggle, and I even teared up a little bit toward the end.
The characters are consistent and feel very real. As a reader, I felt like I was experiencing the story alongside them. The metaphor of adding sugar to life’s lemonade was consistent throughout.
There were very few grammatical errors.
This book was not what I expected at all. I guess you could say I was a bit prejudiced in my notions about this book – I’m skeptical of books and movies that come across as what I like to call “Hallmark-y.” But this story, while a romance, is just the right about of cheesy while still believable.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about life, love, and finding the sugar when life gives you lemons.
