After a difficult marriage and divorce, Holly focuses on running her restaurant and taking care of her two boys. She doesn't have time for romance. Sam is the Scout troop leader for Holly's boys, and has been in love with Holly for a long time. He's even decorated his home to her taste and set up bedrooms for her boys, although he still hasn't worked up the nerve to ask her out. Once Holly and Sam have their first date, things settle into a comfortable rhythm for them. But Holly doesn't find it so easy to let go of her past.
This was a sweet clean romance that could be read as a standalone, although I'd recommend reading the first book to become familiar with the whole gang. There's a mystery that involves Coach that arcs through the series. This book had a lot of dialogue that at times seemed repetitive, and the book moved at a gentle pace with a lot of day to day details.
I liked both leads, and most of the group of friends. Holly's little boys were adorable! Sam was a picture perfect hero, great with kids, a literal genius, and well off. Holly was a strong woman, a single mother raising two boys and running a successful restaurant. This was a great read if you enjoy sweet romances and strong friendships.
I enjoyed the narration, Daniela Acitelli had an expressive voice and read dramatically. She performed voices for the characters and it was always easy to tell who was speaking. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
