my thoughts~
Oh, Oh, Oh! I love Gabe! He is such a tortured soul, having lost his wife & son he is broken and his brothers are coddling him. Lucky for Gabe, Rachel's car breaks down right outside his drive-in that he is renovating to open and she only have $9 in her pocket & a 5 year old to care for. This book made me weepy, the way SEP writes about Gabe's wife & son, the trials Gabe, Rachel & Edward (the 5 Year old) have to endure to become the family that each one of them needs. It's no secret that SEP writes happily ever afters. But she writes great happily ever afters!
