I didn’t want to finish this one! I need about a million more books like this one in my life! It is a solid heartwarming romance (yes, I have put my hand over my heart trying to figure out the right words to describe this book, come at me) that you all NEED to read!
In a small town in Maryland (love), a woman comes to the aid of her sister and niece after a car accident leaves them shattered. When her niece, Caitlin, wants to do the Renaissance Faire fundraiser for the school, Emily finds herself forced to volunteer as well. She gets placed as a wench in the tavern at the Faire, and as she begins working it, she learns that there is a lot that needs to be done to get things running smoothly. Sadly, she is stuck by Simon, the high school English teacher and Faire organizer, who runs the Faire the same way his late brother did. I mean, EXACTLY the same way. Her first day at the Faire, Emily finds herself making a year and a day pledge to Simon (at least their characters do) and suddenly there are feelings there that weren’t there before. Trying to get through the Faire is hard, but trying to move past their pasts is harder, and with the summer quickly dwindling, they have to make choices they aren’t keen to make.
Firstly, I haven’t read a book about a renaissance fair in my entire life. It was nice to read something that was so different from other books I read, while still keeping the themes that connect to everyone. The romance is pure and fun (if a little surprising), but once you are in, you are hooked for life. I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars, and if you are someone who likes heartwarming, sweet, funny, chill, fun romances, then put this book on your TBR pile right now!
