I have started and stopped more books than I can count in 2020. I don’t know about you, but reading during this pandemic has been a challenge for me. I have found it difficult to find the right personal balance between books diving into heavier subjects and those with a lighter, less intense subject matter.
The Key to Love by Betsy St. Amant, was offered for review by Revell Publishing and I jumped at the chance to read a light hearted romance set in a fictional town in my home state of Kansas.
I enjoyed the experience of reading this book. It reminded me of a holiday Hallmark movie (without the holiday) in the best possible way. The town of Story, Kansas is populated with lovable, quirky and colorful characters. Without offering any spoilers, this book has it all: romantic tension, charm, friendship, humor and depth. More than once, I found myself wishing I could walk over and grab my morning coffee at The Pastry Puff.
Betsy St. Amant hits all the right notes with The Key to Love and for me, it was exactly the kind of book I needed to read right now. It felt like a hug. This wholesome romance will warm your heart and leave you wanting nothing but more macarons. If you love books that ooze charm, this one’s for you!
