Goodreads Synopsis –
Samantha Casey loves everything about her job as an elementary school librarian on the sunny, historic island of Galveston, Texas—the goofy kids, the stately Victorian building, the butterfly garden. But when the school suddenly loses its beloved principal, it turns out his replacement will be none other than Duncan Carpenter—a former, unrequited crush of Sam’s from many years before.
When Duncan shows up as her new boss, though, he’s nothing like the sweet teacher she once swooned over. He’s become stiff, and humorless, and obsessed with school safety. Now, with Duncan determined to destroy everything Sam loves about her school in the name of security—and turn it into nothing short of a prison—Sam has to stand up for everyone she cares about before the school that’s become her home is gone for good.
My Opinion –
I loved this book!
I don’t read a lot of romance, but Katherine Center’s books are the perfect blend of entertaining fiction with a romance that never fails to pull me in.
This book was so much fun, I was hooked from the very first chapter! Sam is a fabulous character! She is passionate, quirky, and marches to the beat of her own drummer. Duncan is another character that I found very interesting and couldn’t wait to see how his character would develop.
The story may be somewhat predictable, but I didn’t care. It was a book that I could hardly bear to pull myself away from. The writing is addicting and humorous, putting a smile on my face and thoroughly entertaining me!
If you have not read a Katherine Center book yet, this is a fantastic place to start!
