This year is all about healing the heart, Scorpio. It’s time to leave negative attitudes and stoic facades at the door and let others see the real, more vulnerable you.
Percy Freedman is not grieving. Absolutely not, take that back at once. No, he’s entirely sure that selling his dead aunt’s home and leaving the neighbors he’s known for years is the sane thing to do. Who in their right mind would keep the house that smells like all the hugs he’ll never have again?
Nobody, that’s who.
Well, except his cul-de-sac neighbors. They all seem to think some paint and new furniture will clean the emotional slate. They all want him to stay.
Even his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Especially his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Lured into a game of Sherlock Gnomes, Percy finds himself hanging out with his neighbors more than might be considered healthy. Along with juggling new and surprising verbal grenades from Cal, and his burgeoning friendship with Gnomber9, Percy is starting to wonder if selling might have been the grief talking after all . . .
That’s right, Scorpio. With a little patience, heartbreak might be a thing of the past . . .
It took me so long to get into this story. Which is completely different from when I read Leo loves Aries. Book 1 I couldn’t put down, it flowed so well with the perfect amounts of all the things I love. Book 2 had the great writing that I’ve grown to appreciate from this author but the story just drug for me. I felt like I was forcing myself to pick up the book when in book 1, I couldn’t put the book down. I don’t know if it was the slow burn or what but something was off for me. I really like the characters however. I loved the idea of this close knit street where everyone knows their neighbor and they look out for each other.
Percy Freedman has been in love with his neighbor Cal for as long as he can remember but they’re nemesis’s so nothing can ever come of it. On top of that he has to clear out his aunt’s house and get it ready to sell. His heart is broken from the loss of his aunt and the memories are crushing him. He wants to escape but everything is bringing him back to his aunt’s house, their quirky neighbors and most importantly Cal.
This is a slow burn to the extreme…these characters keep me on the edge of my seat literally the majority of the book but the buildup was nice. This is one of those stories where you are just waiting for the main characters to be on page together because it is delicious when they interact. I did love how Percy and Cal played off each other.
Like I already mentioned the things I absolutely loved were the neighbors and this tight-knit community. Anyta Sunday is an auto-read for me. I really enjoy the feel of her stories and I’m looking forward to more shenanigans from future books.
