Christopher Hughes is new to the small New England town of Lancaster, New Hampshire. He’s been hired to save an old library from closing, but his obstacles include not only fighting for state funding, but a Selectman who wants to tear the building down in favor of a shopping center.
Christopher meets Miles Sakasai, a charming tattooed repairman hired to help restore the historical interior. Working in close proximity has both men falling hard for each other, and also provides Christopher an opportunity to learn about Miles’s passion for baking. As it turns out, Miles’s skills in the kitchen may end up being the key to saving the library—but only if his bread can rise to the occasion.
This was a fun and delightful read. Christopher desperately wants to stay in Lancaster, New Hampshire, but job prospects are about non-existent, so he’s ecstatic when he is offered a job as the town librarian. But it comes with a caveat – he has to prove it’s a viable library within a month or the library, and the job, are over.
Enter Miles. A dark haired, tattooed, handy man. A man a few words. But Christopher discovers Miles has a history with the library and a knack for making bread.
Together, they accomplish some amazing things in a few short pages.
My only complaint – it was too short!!
Sigh. Like a homemade ice cream, utterly sweet and over with far too quickly.
