AUTHOR: Tari Faris
When she hears that the small town of Heritage, Michigan, is looking for a new librarian, Libby Kingsley jumps at the opportunity. Little did she know the library is barely more than a storage closet stuffed with dusty, outdated books. What the community really needs is a new building. But the only funds available are those being channeled into the new town square, and the landscape architect in charge of the project wants nothing to do with her plans.
All Austin Williams wants to do is get the town square project finished so he can do right by the family business and then extricate himself from the town that reveres the brother who cost him so much. But the local media and the town's new librarian seem to be conspiring against him at every turn. Will the determined bookworm find her way into his blueprints--and possibly even his heart?
Until I Met You mixes great characters, a sweet small town, and a lot of growth. From fear to courage and from resentment to forgiveness, Libby and Austin travel a long distance in the little town of Heritage.
I hadn’t read the first in this series, but enough backstory tidbits filled in the blanks. They also enticed me to track down the initial book for my someday pile.
Libby and Austin don’t make great first impressions on one another, and their possible relationship encounters plenty of bumps along the way. I grew to care about these people as I read this story. Filled with realistic characters (enough for a long series, I think), plenty of misunderstanding and presumptions, and a sprinkle of laugh-out-loud humor, Until I Met You was a pleasure to read.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher and award it four stars. Recommended.
