Rating: 4 Enchantments
Rose is very unhappy in her dead-end job at the town diner that’s actually called “The Diner”, and dead-end marriage to the town drunk. As she sees it her dead end life.
Tom runs “Tom’s Market” in Mead, Maine, the little town that Rose ends up in. Tom has insecurities and a pain that only Rose can heal.
In the beginning, Rose is contemplating her life in the small town she lives in and decides to finally take action. She ends up moving to a small town in Maine called Mead where she meets a variety of people but none that hold her interest like Tom. But will the two be able to put their pasts behind them and learn to trust again?
In my honest opinion, THE MEAD STEAD was far too short. The characters of Tom and Rose were just so real and so human – and that is very rare in a romance novel or a novel of any kind these days. I was very happy for them that they got their chance at a new start together, but I was disappointed that it had to end for the readers so soon. Overall, well done, Ms. Wicks, very well done.
Ms. Wicks lives in a little cottage near the beach in Maine. When she’s not busy writing, she reads, walks the beach searching for seashells and driftwood, and takes Chinese language lessons. She spends the rest of her time with a special man who makes her heart thud, even after more years than she’s willing to admit. Ms. Wicks believes in love… and she wants you to believe in it, too.
