Review by Snowdrop
What happens when a store manager falls in love with a young, homeless woman who shoplifts? Love and an engagement ring can be found in unexpected places.
This story is like a little black dress... cute, sexy and fits anytime.
Ms Benoiti creates wonderful characters that tug at your heart strings. Seeing a young woman get a second chance and a love blossom makes you believe in the power of true love. The reader can't help but enjoy both beautiful things.
This is a really sweet story, and the only thing I didn't like is that it was too short. This had potential to be a novella at least. Ms Benoiti has many openings in the plot to go deeper, but doesn't. You want to know what will happen for this couple next.
Jill is a sweet woman with a bit of a sweet tooth, who's fallen on hard times. The background Ms Benoiti gives Jill helps make her believable. Even though she acts irresponsibly, you can't help but find a soft spot for her. Cory is a good guy who has a big heart. His tenderness and compassion makes him such a great character. And it doesn't hurt that he's handsome and totally interested in Jill. I really liked watching these two get together and fall in love. I bet you'll want to read this story over and over. I know I do.
