Have you ever read a book that is just so lovely and enjoyable you find yourself smiling every time you pick it up? That is how Edenbrooke was for me. It was such a joy to read, it is hard to be much of a critic. In 2 days I devoured the English countryside, likable characters, and quick story which was just what I needed after a lot of heavy reads. The ending was rather predictable, there were a few hokey moments, and I think it could have been so much more complex but the sweet love story allowed me to look past the book's minor flaws. It was squeaky clean and would make a great gift to any woman in your life who loves to read!
