Write Review

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

From the author of You Deserve Each Other comes an unconventional and laugh-out-loud new romantic comedy about a woman who inherits a rambling Tennessee estate--and, with it, a groundskeeper whose cranky exterior masks a vulnerability that matches her own.

'This book is the perfect dose of sweet, hilarious joy. . . We are in love' bestselling author Christina Lauren

If you dream something hard enough, it might just come true . . .

Maybell Parrish lives with her head in the clouds, which is the sensible choice because her fantasy life is wonderful. She runs a cosy coffee shop, surrounded by friends and the man of her dreams. Her real life, meanwhile, is full of painful disappointments. So, when Maybell inherits a stately old manor from her Great Aunt Violet, it's her chance to change everything.

Yet when she arrives, the house is falling apart around her, and Violet has left a list of demands as eccentric as she was. Worst of all, Maybell isn't the only inheritor: she has to share everything with Wesley Koehler, the groundskeeper who's as grouchy as he is gorgeous - and who has plans of his own for their shared manor.

At first, Wesley seems determined to avoid speaking to Maybell completely, but soon she begins to suspect that Wesley's scowls hide a shy, kind nature that has also found the real world a difficult place - in fact, could it be that Wesley and Maybell are better matched than even Maybell could ever have dreamed?

Perfect for fans of Helen Hoang's The Love Quotient and Sally Thorne's The Hating Game, TWICE SHY is laugh-out-loud funny, painfully relatable, and bitingly smart.
