Reviewing Kerry Winfrey's Very Sincerely Yours
Right off, I want to say that this story was absolutely adorable! The character development was done so well and I loved the dual point of views.
Teddy spoke to me with her indecisiveness. She doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life after being recently dumped by her boyfriend whom she molded her life around serving. While I don’t relate to the servitude part, I completely understood how she wasn’t sure what her passion was and with the help of her best friends, she takes on doing one scary thing a day. I loved that indecisiveness wasn’t wrapped up in a bow and solidified. I’ve mentioned it before but I went through a quarter life crisis not knowing what I was going to do next. Thankfully, I did figure it out but that’s not always the case with people.
Everett was just the cutest! Picture a super sexy and hotter Mr. Rogers and that is Everett. He was such a teddy bear and sweet and honest from the beginning. I loved that he wasn’t this complicated character with one flaw of being too engrossed into his work.
A lighthearted and sweet story, Winfrey proves once again why she is an auto-buy author for romance fans.
Very Sincerely Yours comes out tomorrow!
Thank you Berkley and Netgalley for the advanced reader's copy. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Teddy Phillips never thought she'd still be spending every day surrounded by toys at almost thirty years old. But working at a vintage toy store is pretty much all she has going on in her life after being unceremoniously dumped by her longtime boyfriend. The one joy that she's kept is her not-so-guilty pleasure: Everett's Place, a local children's show hosted by Everett St. James, a man whom Teddy finds very soothing . . . and, okay, cute.
Teddy finds the courage to write to him, feeling slightly like one of the children who write to him on his show. He always gives sound advice and seems like he has everything figured out--and he pretty much does: Everett has a great support system, wonderful friends, and his dream job. But there's still that persistent feeling in the back of his mind that something's missing.
When a woman named Theodora starts writing to Everett, he is drawn to her honesty and vulnerability. They continue writing to each other, all the while living their lives without meeting. When their worlds collide, however, they must both let go of their fears and figure out what they truly want--and if the future they want includes each other.
