My Rating: ★★★★
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.
Much Ado About You was such a sweet and enjoyable read. This was my first time reading anything by Samantha Young and I have to say, I was blown away by her writing. I had an absolute blast getting lost in this story. It really makes me want to open a bookstore in England.
This book has such wonderful main characters. I related to Evie so much! This book is all about her finding herself & her happiness. Roane was so charming and a bit mysterious. He loves his village, friends and family to pieces and he would do anything to protect them. The side characters were great as well. I loved that each of them kind of got their own story. I would honestly give anything for a book all about Caro!
The romance was oh so sweet. I’m a sucker for a friends to lovers story and this one was particularly special. The chemistry between the two was there from the very beginning. I was rooting for them the entire time!
Overall, this book was a delight to read. If you are looking for a swoon worthy romance, look no further!
