Sybil AKA Sybs is on the verge of an emotional breakdown. Or in the midst of one, honestly. After being jilted at the altar by her groom to be, dressed as Princess Leia by his request no less. Sybs has been working on auto pilot, after all her groom to be ran off with her very own twin sister! She has been unable to sleep, has lost focus on work and has neglected friendships. A weekend away is just the thing she needs and when her friend Cher leaves a voice message inviting her to visit her quaint little postcard town, Tindledale, Sybs makes the split decision to leave town and try to recollect herself.


What promises to be a relaxing weekend away spells out disaster. Sybs must make a three mile trek knee deep in snow with dog in tow to Tindledale, and come to find out Cher has left town for the weekend. Sybs also has an awful mix up with a secret admirer that leaves her feeling more alone and devastated than ever before. While knitting is her saving grace, Sybs has become the saving grace for Hettie, the owner of Hettie's House of Haberdashery. Hettie is in financial ruin and Sybs is able to aide Hettie in recreating her business and making it boom.

Ben Darcy is the small town doctor, famous in his own right and handsome as can be. Jilted by his first wife, he moved to Tindledale to have a fresh start. No one has caught his eye until he meets Sybs on the train ride to Tindledale and he knows there is just something special about her. Dr. Darcy leaves a flirty note on Sybs' newspaper and does not hear from her until she lands herself in his office.

Sybs is beautiful yet not glamorous like her twin sister but she is kind and caring, the type of person you want to see with a happily ever after. When Sybs winds up in Dr. Darcy's office I internally swooned at the thought of his dark curly hair, fit body and emerald green eyes. Sybs and Darcy have a sweet romance that you begin to see unravel in this story. This book was a keep you up, page turner. I loved how Alexandra Brown portrayed her characters and the pain Sybs goes through is so real and her journey to overcome the pain is endearing. You are able to watch Sybs move past her heartache and create a bond with the townsfolk of Tindledale and realize her biggest dreams. This book is a keeper, it was such an enjoyable and sweet romance I plan on reading it again.
