A fabulously fun and fast read that was just perfect to lift my spirits and put a smile on my face!
Milton Coleridge works helping turn companies around to make a profit. He has a month to get from Orange County, California to Delaware for his next job. On his way, he stops and spends a week at Joshua Tree National Park and finds the cutest little bookstore that is on the verge of closing. Spines and Leaves is the oldest bookstore in town and has a lot of spunk under the surface. But if things don’t change soon, the doors will have to be shut permanently. Milton comes in and uses his skills helping corporations make money to help the bookstore be able to keep its doors open.
This was such a fun Novella to read and enjoy. I so enjoyed this story and the character of Milton. Atticus might be my second favorite character from the book. It was a short book, moved at a quick pace and didn’t feel like there was an excess or fluff that didn’t need to be there, something I love in a book. Set in a small town in the California desert, Ced, the woman he meets who is running the bookstore for her father, knows his help will be vital and they work together to turn things around with some extra romance thrown in. I love the way Chautona Havig wrote these characters, the troubles they faced and how they kept their faith in working through their problems. The story was sweet with just the right amount of tension and romance. A fun start to a novella series that I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest. I recommend this series to anyone that loves a great Christian romance with heart and a lot to offer readers.
One thought on “Spines and Leaves”
I agree! Characters were likable, and Chautona Havig gave us just enough of a nice “taste” of Milton to make us want to read more about him!
