Mark is a college professor, who loves hiking and photography. He had his heart broken and is reluctant in pursuing another relationship.
His parents seems to think that at 29 he should get married and have a life and convinces him on trying to date Karen “The Ice Queen” Wingate, an old friend of his sister’s and an artist.
His mother asks him to give her a chance and date her “just three dates”…
Karen is being set up by her mother as well…
The mother’s conversation is a really funny part.
Karen and Mark agree on this “just three dates” arrangement and so it begins their adventure in dating and in love.
I do read a lot of romance novels and this one particularly is so sweet and honest, it reminds me the films Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral, because time is developing and cementing their connection. The relationship unfolds slowly and it is so lovely to see these two souls finding each other despite not really wanting it in the first place.
The ending is so endearing and I swear I had to get the music (which I will not spoil it here) on Spotify and it was on my mind the whole day.
This book is worth to read it and you will not regret it.
Romance as a First Lnguage
