Just because Piper's birthday is on Valentine's Day does not mean she's a romantic. In fact, after watching her father and then her stepfather leave, she's pretty sure she doesn't believe in love at all. Then her friends concoct a plan to find them all Valentine's dates, and somehow Piper finds herself with the most popular guy in school. But true love never follows a plan, and a string of heartfelt gifts from a secret admirer has Piper wondering if she might be with the wrong guy.
In this heartwarming romance, true love is more than a maybe - and it might be closer than you think.
In reading this one, I discovered how much I love books set in candy stores/chocolate shops/bakeries. Bittersweet just got bumped up on my TBR list as a result. One thing I loved about Heather Hepler's writing is how she subtly (and successfully) works thoughtful, hefty themes into a heartwarming light romance.
And now I've started Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca, after finding out it's a favorite of eleventy-billion people I know. Sidenote: Reading a book with your name as the title feels weirdly narcissistic. I wonder if any Jane Eyres out there, or Emmas, feel the same way?
