Twice Shy
Twice Shy | Sarah Hogle
13 posts | 16 read | 7 to read
Can you find real love when you've always got your head in the clouds? Maybell Parish has always been a dreamer and a hopeless romantic. But living in her own world has long been preferable to dealing with the disappointments of real life. So when Maybell inherits a charming house in the Smokies from her Great-Aunt Violet, she seizes the opportunity to make a fresh start. Yet when she arrives, it seems her troubles have only just begun. Not only is the house falling apart around her, but she isn't the only inheritor: she has to share everything with Wesley Koehler, the groundskeeper who's as grouchy as he is gorgeous--and it turns out he has a very different vision for the property's future. Convincing the taciturn Wesley to stop avoiding her and compromise is a task more formidable than the other dying wishes Great-Aunt Violet left behind. But when Maybell uncovers something unexpectedly sweet beneath Wesley's scowls, and as the two slowly begin to let their guard down, they might learn that sometimes the smallest steps outside one's comfort zone can lead to the greatest rewards.

Finished this sweet book! HEA and all. Loved the slow build of their relationship, each opening up a little at a time. I identified with Maybell, especially this paragraph near the end of the book.

I enjoyed this but I didn‘t love this. I did like the characters and their own personal issues. I really had to suspend belief with some of the air travel details as some things just couldn‘t happen these days. (I know, it‘s fiction.). I would have also enjoyed more spicy scenes!

Wesley and Maybell were so perfectly portrayed. He is the grumpy to her sunshine. Two introverts must learn both patience and acceptance. They jointly inherit a crumbling mansion and unearth its secrets together.
A beautiful love story about starting over, finding yourself and being comfortable in your own skin.

I read a lot of rom coms and I have to say that this one has moved into my top 5! I fell in love with these characters.💛 Also, as someone who deals with social anxiety I appreciate the author‘s care in creating a wonderful, likable character dealing with this issue.

This is a cute grouchy guy/sunshine girl romance. One of my favorite tropes.

Rating: ⭐️
DNF at 144 pages. The main character is annoying and immature. There is no chemistry between the love interests. I hated the alternative universe.

This was a sweet one. I wouldn‘t say it was masterfully written and the AU interludes weren‘t my favorite but overall I did enjoy it.

What can I say, I‘m a sucker for a sweet romance 🤷🏼‍♀️

Another hit from Sarah Hogle. He's grumpy, she's sunshine. He wants an animal sanctuary, she wants to restore the house to it's former glory and let it be a hotel. Aunt Violet had a few tricks up her sleeve with her final wishes for Wesley and Maybell, all but forcing them together. Maybell breaks through Wesley's defenses, seeing his anxiety and fear and loving him through it. By the end of the book I was absolutley sobbing.

I picked this up both because I liked Sarah Hogle's last book and because I am a sucker for the grumpy one loving the sunshine one and it did not disappoint! The slow burn, the forced proximity, the fun writing style, and the wonderful character growth were all done so well. There were a few scenes/subplots that probably could've been dropped but overall it made me feel like I had gotten a warm hug by the end and that's all I can really ask for.
