If you want to know the in's and out's of opening a fast food franchise, read this book. Way too much time is spent on this subject! Mandy and Frankie don't even see each other through almost half the book. I thought this might be a light, funny, romantic read, but I was wrong. Glad this one was free!

Too much about her insecurities over and over until I began skipping pages. Almost entire book focused on her fears.

Book would have been better if there was less about the business and more about the people.

The novel was worth reading till the end! It would have been nice to have an epilogue, but the author wants her readers to read the other novels in the series. Beautiful place/setting the author created. Now I want to visit Blueberry Springs!

Although the writing is mostly good, there were a few editing errors (ex. Disdain, not "distain"). I also found there were several issues with keeping the tone consistent. So the author needed to decide whether this was going to be a "clean" book without any cuss words, or if she was going to have the characters let them fly. So one second Mandy would be saying a cuss word, and the next it would be "good golly gosh" -esque, or one second the brother calls her the b-word, then uses a really juvenile term that's out of character. Also, characters just seemed to magically appear in this book. I had a hard time keeping track of them because some of them were very similar, and probably it would have been best to combine a few of them. The blurb is also misleading. She and Frankie don't open a restaurant together--he's not even there to help her set up shop on opening day, he basically shows up and sleeps with her and that's the bulk of the romance. Also, some random girl moves to blueberry springs and she's NOT involved with Frankie? Not likely. I feel like the author didn't really know her characters. What's the deal with seth? Is he a creep? Why does he only hire girls? He's a really sketch guy who's being accused of fraud and who knows what else and all of a sudden he sends hundreds of dollars of supplies to Mandy? Some of it was cute, like the water tower painting, but a lot of it just dragged on and on, didn't really get to know the characters, except for Mandy kind of, whose only thought is about a franchise. This book could really do better with some critical readers and a good editor.

AWFUL! The characters are lame and shallow. The plot is poor -- at least I think there was a sort-of plot! I actually read almost half of it and finally dumped it since it was a huge waste of time. Thank goodness it was free.
