***I was given a review copy in exchange for an honest review***
Daniel Cavanaugh has it all—a lucrative career as a lawyer, a gorgeous fiancée, and his future mapped out for him. So why is he feeling increasingly dissatisfied with his life? When the assignment to handle his late grandmother’s estate takes him to the California coast, Daniel welcomes the escape. Staying at the nearby bed-and-breakfast isn’t really his style, but he soon realizes the inn may hold the key to the answers he’s been seeking. Spindrift Cove has few opportunities for a young unmarried woman like Sarah Michaels. Even so, she enjoys her solitude as owner and chef at the Neverland Inn. She thrives on catering to the needs of her guests and treating them to her fantastic cooking. But when Daniel walks through her door, he immediately tests her patience. Though he is handsome and well-bred, she finds him insufferable. Soon, however, the tranquility of the inn works its magic, and Daniel and Sarah forge a sweet and unexpected connection—until the life he left behind in the city demands his return and it seems that a happily ever after may not be on the menu after all.
My Review The Neverland Inn is such a cute story. I love main character Sarah Michaels, the owner of the Neverland Inn. She is kind, caring, talented, and so very charming and normal. Her personality shines in this novel and jumps out of the pages, even though she at times shows some self-doubt. It differs greatly with her current guest, the staunch and uptight lawyer, Daniel Cavanaugh. Poor Daniel's life is being governed by his pompous father and his stuck-up, and gorgeous Fiance'. The only person sho had ever made him feel truly loved was his Grandmother who has just passed away in the story. That's how he finds Sarah's Inn when Daniel has been to his Grandmother's home to get ready for an estate sale. Sarah's Inn is small, but she treats all of her guests so well, especially with her amazing cooking. One of my favorite things about this book are the recipes found at the end of each chapter. Here are some of the recipes you'll find in the book:
Michelle's Chicken Marsala
Cranberry -Stuffed Pork Chops
Apricot-Lime Glazed Shrimp
Couples Caramelized-Onion Quiche
I also enjoyed Sarah's dog Muttley, whose personality was darling. Sarah brings life to a room and she brings life and love into other's lives. It's Daniel that has the life changing experience in the book. By the end I really liked him and how he realized what was most important in his life. This book is under 200 pages so it's a fast read and I did read it all in almost one sitting. This novel is not only a romance, but also there's a situation at the end with several angsty moments. The Neverland Inn ends up being a feel good story, with a cute romance, and yummy recipes. Check this one out!
