Claire is a shy, plain girl who works at a florist, lives with her mom and loves Jane Eyre. When she has a minor accident while delivering flowers she ends up in the hospital and meets up with Sam. The attractive male is captivated by her. For Claire it’s too good to be true. Sam is a nice guy who admits he has a past but has cleaned up his act. When that past suddenly catches up with him, Claire is crushed.
The concept of the book is clever with its quirky characters and Claire continually comparing herself to her favorite heroine. The author has a witty style and is one of those rare authors who writes in present tense. It’s a cute story though it may have worked better to keep the narrative in past tense and I felt the characters were kind of cartoonish. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
