Meghan Quinn is on my VERY SHORT list of must read authors. Her stories and character development are always well written, funny and endearing, with a hint of that kismet, everything happens for a reason undertone to them. This book is that and so much more!
It deals with loss, betrayal, familial obligation and navigating a full gamut of relationship dynamics. The romance is a slow burn in the most realistic way. I feel like I read these characters grow up emotionally with every page I turned. If you've ever dealt with an aging family member with health concerns, this book will hit you in the feels SO HARD. And if you've ever been cheated on by a friend or a lover, the trauma responses these characters experience will pull at your heartstrings as well. All of that with a side of Grumpy Grandpa, Crazy BFF, Gay Dads, and Kooky Townsfolk where the Mayor is a cat...what more could you ask for?!?
I love love loved this story and I know you will too. ❤❤❤

From The Publisher


From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a heartfelt romantic comedy about new beginnings and finding the romanticized happily ever after in the most unlikely of places.

Hollywood screenwriter Sawyer Walsh knows a good love story when he sees it. But when it comes to real life romance, he’s a mess. That’s how he finds himself standing at the altar…as his ex-girlfriend ties the knot with his very famous best friend. The pressure, the resentment, the media coverage—it’s all too much—and before he knows exactly what he’s doing, he’s making a run for it, leaving a shocked congregation and flashing cameras in his wake.

Needing to lie low amid the media fallout, Sawyer lands in the charming town of Canoodle, California, where he crosses paths with Fallon Long, who runs the Canoodle Cove Cabins, a family-owned business and Sawyer’s new short-term residence. Overwhelmed with renovations and her long list of responsibilities, Fallon is struggling to make ends meet while attempting to bring the cabins back to their original glory. So when Sawyer arrives, she is grateful for the income, but immediately writes him off as just another vapid Hollywood hack, until he begins to prove her wrong at every turn.

As Fallon comes closer to saving the family business, an undeniable bond forms between her and the handsome screenwriter. But the pressures of her family obligations and Sawyer’s notoriety might prove to be too much for anyone to handle. Could Canoodle be the setting for a new romance—or is true love just a Hollywood cliché?
