Anh Nhi, commonly called Annie, has been hiding away in Rome, RI, after her fiancé dumped her. When she applied for the temporary physician’s assistant job in Rome, she misread that it wasn’t the famed Italian capital. But the small town quickly grows on her, and she’s just started making her rental house a home when an unexpected visitor shows up and lets himself into her house. Emmitt doesn’t expect to find a half-naked woman in his house when he returns home from an assignment. And he definitely didn’t expect her to kick him out of his own place. This house isn’t big enough for the two of them—Rome itself might not have enough space. But the more time the two spend together, the more they realize being apart might not be what they really want.
VERDICT Adair (“Destiny Bay” series) launches an adorable, fun new contemporary romance series. Anh and Emmitt are delightful, and the cast of secondary characters is varied and entertaining. Readers will be eager to see several of them get their own story. For public libraries where small-town contemporary romances are popular.
