My Review: I've been eager to read another Rich Amooi book since the first one I read last year that I loved.  This one was a very sweet and quick read.  While I normally prefer books about younger heroines, in this case, when I'm about 3 years from being 50 years old myself, I kind of felt like it gave me a bit of hope for my own romantic, or lack of a romantic life.  There were a lot of different things going on in this story, but how everyone handled their issues, mostly, seemed really realistic to me.  We still had the one issue that you've probably seen me complain about numerous romance books, that if they'd just tell the other one the secret they were keeping, they'd probably have been able to solve things a lot quicker.  I had a feeling the way a certain perfect ending happened might be what happened early on in the story. But the author kept it as not a big part of the story, in fact, I thought maybe I was being too cliche by thinking that would be what happened.  I like that the author kept that the way it was.   Now, Liz winning the lottery was perfection. The things she did on her bucket list trip are exactly the types of things I'd want to do if I won the lottery, especially the part about helping rebuild or fix up the building for the school.  While I didn't love this one as much as the other book I read by this author, Madam Love,  Actually, I still really liked it a lot, and sped through the sweet and fun story.

    This is a new author for me. From your review, I think this might be a fun adult book for me. I tend to read more YA, but have tried stepping out into more "mature" books this year and have loved my choices so far.
