Darby meets Benjamin in London and thinks she will marry him. While waiting at the airport, Darby has coffee spilled on her by Chad. She thinks she’ll never see him again, but fate has other plans. No spoilers, but this book will have you laughing and smiling many times. I can’t wait to read Nora and Cole’s story.*This story was filled with characters I would enjoy knowing. It was also filled with a quirky loving extended family on one side and loving sister, grandfather, mean step mother, and a father on the other. All of this and a happily ever after ending.*The clock was old and packed away in a box, it had not been used for ninety years but it began working with it tick-tock sound every time a certain couple started kissing. How romantic can you get? The characters are so warm and special in this book you will enjoy everything about the end. Happy to recommend this book.*This is a love story, but I enjoyed the strong family love that both Darby and Chad expressed. It is really funny at times more sentimental others. A fun summer read.
