This was such an excellent read. I loved how real the actions and reactions of the characters were. The awkward first meeting between heroine and his family, the uncertain feelings about impending parenthood on both sides, etc. I especially loved the friendship between the heroine and her best friend. It was spot on for a real life friendship. Sadly, we don't see strong female friendships often enough in romance. THe heroine's lack of self-esteem was sad and started to grate on my nerves toward the end. But watching her accept herself was heartwarming. Overall a stellar read. Mayberry delivers again.
