Flynn McGrady owns an internet-based company. He lives in New York but travels every weekend to Atlanta to check in on his ailing mother at a nursing facility. He gets jealous of the success Cat has with his mother and unintentionally causes her to lose her job at the coffee shop.
I found Cat to be such an amusing, fiesty and quirky character. She made the story so entertaining to read, anticipating her sassiness and good-humored banter. Of course, she had her shortcomings, such as her inner demons that kept her dimensional and believable.
Flynn came off as a jerk and a stick-in-the-mud. He redeems himself on the contriteness he feels at costing Cat her job and listening to her advice on his mother. I loved how Flynn and Cat are polar opposites, so unlike. They are a balanced ying and yang.
Landon’s character won me instantly. He is the type of character you cannot help but be drawn to. I only wish we learned a little more of his background. I felt there was another story, one untold, about Landon’s friendship with Flynn’s cousin.
TALK THIS WAY is a fun yet emotional story. The author makes you laugh one minute only to break down in tears the next. TALK THIS WAY is a prelude to Dakota Cassidy’s PLUM OCHARD series.
