The story feels like Mother of the Year, Big Sky Country 1 and 2, and Home for the Holidays. They’re all small-town sort of tales.
- I think you only get 2 choices for love interest this go. There’s Mayor Dixon and Mr. Covington. I believe you can choose the mayor’s gender and Mr. Covington’s first name.
- I named the MC and Mr. Covington after characters in a book, but that’s neither here nor there.
- The basic premise is that the MC and Mr. Covington have a one-night stand wherein the MC ends up pregnant.
- The MC works for the mayor as a fixer/problem solver, trying to get the businesses in the community to thrive.
- There are unsavory types like the mayor’s other assistant and Cassandra. That one is a spoiled rich girl with an I-called-dibs on Covington complex.
- The MC also has a loving, older sister who dotes on her.
- I was too cheap for the baby basket gifts, but I’m sure they were adorable. I did however complete that darn baby blanket.
- I enjoy reading the trivia sections of fandom where they elaborate on tie-ins to other book series.
- If you want to see the baby, you have to read on to book 2. That’s somewhat disappointing after all this drama.
Surprisingly fun even though nobody is put in mortal danger.
