Mia Abbott’s move to Manchester was supposed to give her time and space from all the disastrous romantic choices she’s made in her past. But then the hot guy who lives opposite – the one who works out every day at exactly 10 a.m., not that Mia has noticed thank-you-very-much – starts leaving notes in his window…for her.
Bar owner Luke Doyle has his own issues to deal with but as he shows Mia the sites of her new city he also shows her what real romance looks like for the first time. And when he cooks up a signature cocktail in her honour, she realises that the man behind the bar is even more enticing than any of his creations. And once she’s had a taste she knows it will never be enough!

I ended up enjoying this book for all of its quirky and cuteness. The characters were fun, the setting was interesting to explore, and I liked the newness Luke and Mia’s relationship brought.
Luke’s notes on his window to Mia were so stinking adorable to me. He was persistent in reaching out to her and was great in reminding her how interested he was. He never faltered in his trust and whatnot in Mia which was also very admirable. My heart would also break for him each time Mia pulled away. Like, he was so committed and it just made me ache for him and his little broken heart. My poor cutie pie.
Mia was interesting to me right off the bat because we’re both website designers who also enjoying writing books! I never really thought I’d see that combination in a book, but here we are. Besides Mia’s career choice, I also loved her tenacity in putting herself out there and starting over in a new place.
I was intrigued enough by Luke and Mia and their quirky friends/family to finish this book in a couple of days. It was a good read for those who enjoy romance and sweet, old fashion love-note passing with a twist.
