Eve Brown is a disaster. After her career implodes her parents tell her it’s time to sort out her life and move out of their house. This tough love sends Eve out of the city and into a job interview at Jacob Wayne’s B&B in the English countryside. Jacob can’t imagine a worse fit for the job. Eve strikes him as chaos personified, but when he’s out of commission after a car accident, Eve gets a chance to prove herself. She’s a natural in the hospitality industry, but as soon as Jacob heals, she’s gone. The one thing Eve and Jacob agree on is that a human tornado can’t be a fixture at the B&B—or in Jacob’s ordered life.
VERDICT This satisfying conclusion to Hibbert’s “Brown Sisters” trilogy provides a happily ever after for the third Brown sister. Through Jacob and Eve, both characters on the autism spectrum, Hibbert explores themes of self-discovery and belonging with her trademark humor and sensitivity, providing plenty of heat as her characters begin to understand each other.
