Graphic designer Annabelle, 28 and twice divorced, moves to Arizona for a fresh start. Apart from facing workplace issues, Annabelle also deals with her grumpy, retired landlord Nick who communicates- more likely reminds her of the house rules that she has to follow- via notes.
📜Annabelle is a rebel. She likes taking care of people even when it becomes overbearing but her heart is always is the right place. I loved how she stood up for herself against that jerk Carson, even though she felt like punching him.
📄Nick, who is dealing with his trauma post his stroke has given up on world. He lives a grounded life surrounding himself with 3 of his staff members and confined to his house. Having his perspective chapters was really nice.
📜I loved the back & forth notes. These two hotheads don't meet until almost half way through the book, but that doesn't dim their snarky banter. I loved those hilarious notes from Nick especially where he mentions the exact page, para & line number 😆. Their first meeting was epic leading to a disaster. Nick went from being grumpy to hot in a mini second. Amidst those desert dates, granting visitors visa to Sir, working on a project together they fell for each other. All those tragic circumstances helped them heal together & also as an individual.
Ps loved those secondary characters to the core. Pss When Annabelle mentioned Paris is Always a Good Idea, I might or might not have teared up during that as it took me back to Chelsea's story 💙.
Annabelle moves to Phoenix and leaves behind two Ex-husbands and the cold. She has accepted a job working for her BFF’s graphic design firm. She hits the ground running at the firm, and soon realizes she is being sabotaged by one of her employees. She becomes known for her ability to provide exactly what the customer wants. She is living on the grounds of a large mansion, and has been told NOT to bother her landlord and is led to believe he is older and a hermit. All the characters are believable, even those you don’t like. The plot might be a little far-fetched as far as the timeline, but it’s a good story despite that. I recommend this book to anyone who likes romance and adult women’s fiction.
I enjoyed this book about a transplanted New Englander in Phoenix. She's an artist and the hero is a successful entrepreneur who had a stroke at age 36. There's A stray cat, A long lost sister, two ex husbands and an unpleasant co-worker.
