At thirty-three-years old Evangeline Starling’s life in Chicago is missing that special something. And when she’s passed over for promotion at work, Evie realizes she needs to make a change. Some time away to regain perspective might be just the thing. In a burst of impulsivity, she plans a holiday in a quaint English village. The holiday package comes with a temporary position at Much Ado About Books, the bookstore located beneath her rental apartment. There’s no better dream vacation for the bookish Evie, a life-long Shakespeare lover.

Not only is Evie swept up in running the delightful store as soon as she arrives, she’s drawn into the lives, loves and drama of the friendly villagers. Including Roane Robson, the charismatic and sexy farmer who tempts Evie every day with his friendly flirtations. Evie is determined to keep him at bay because a holiday romance can only end in heartbreak, right? But Evie can’t deny their connection and longs to trust in her handsome farmer that their whirlwind romance could turn in to the forever kind of love.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

When 33 year old Evangeline “Evie” Starling escapes to a small town of Northumberland in England to temporarily run the bookstore: Much Ado About Books. Away from her busy Chicago life, she hopes to find herself as she immerses herself around books and the life of the small town gossip and friendship and family.

When Evie meets the charming and hot Roane Robson, there is something about him that she can’t stay away from. As Evie lives her life in the Northumberland, she finds the truth about herself and her life that means so much more.

I gave Much Ado About You five stars, enjoying the way Evie took control of her life and made it her own. She felt trapped in Chicago and she found her soul in Northumberland to find what she truly wanted to do. With the help of Roane and their friendship begins to bloom — and perhaps become something more than sexual tension — Evie is finally able to find the place she belongs.

This was something I really enjoyed, a small town romance, with a friendship that begins to bloom into something more. And when Evie began to find herself, away from Chicago, away from her burdens and her past in Chicago, it is evident that she truly begins to find herself.

And the romance between Roane and Evie was stunning. Their friendship started off strong because they were there for each other. This was the base of their love story and what better way to fall in love with someone you can share your secrets to.

I had a fantastic time reading Much Ado About You and recommend picking up this romance.

Thank you again to NetGalley for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
