I hate rating books lowly because I root for authors but this book was bizarre and not in a good way. I kept feeling that there were details we as readers would have benefited from yet she was giving us a lot of things we didn't need to know in other ways. Yes, living in such a small town should have gauranteed that the protagonist had met the LI in some way. Also what is up with the protagonist saying to herself near the end of the book something akin to, literally, "I want that garden! zomg!" in reference to the LI? This is supposed to be a love story I suppose and she comes off as supremely selfish even though the author tries to paint her as charitable by jonesing for her bf's freaking garden like a lottery winning.
