Now they just have to find it before whoever broke in does. Arden also begins to realize small town life may not be so bad after all.
I was set for a sexy romance when I began this book. I quickly learned it was something else entirely. A Cottage Affair is a splendid book about the history of several Colonial families and their modern day relatives. A sweet, funny romance between two independent souls make this book a real treat! I am a BIG fan of history so this book was a lovely surprise for me. Sharon Sobel includes some laughter, some tears and a whole lot of love and loyalty in this book. You will be delighted with the characters and the superb writing. This is a must read.
I didn't have any issues with this book.
I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because I laughed out loud in some parts.
