This is a nice simple love story set in England. There isn’t anything sensationally dramatic. Boy sees girl and is intrigued. Girl likes boy. They date. They break apart because of challenging life event and a bit of immaturity. They reunite.
What makes this book special is its authenticity. The characters are young and struggling to make money. Unlike too many romance novels that are centered around billionaires. The characters are flawed with uncertainty. Many romance novels assume that once the couple falls for one another that it is a 100% done deal. Finally, the dialog is categorically English, which not only amuses me as an American but sets the tone well.
Most of all, being serenaded in the street is the epitome of romantic.
