Review: Love Around the Corner by Sally Malcolm

Love Around the CornerDisclaimer: I received an electronic version of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I have a soft spot for contemporary romance stories that have evolved with the times. So many relationships begin with the partners meeting online these days (my own included) that more traditional “meet-cutes” almost start to feel contrived.

A story about two characters who develop a relationship online, despite their real-life enmity, was like popcorn to me. I had a few predictions about how the plot would go, but I’m delighted to say that Malcolm completely flipped the script on me. She dismantles the “enemies to lovers” trope in the best way possible, and I’m even inclined to forgive the sheer coincidence of Leo and Alfie already knowing each other in real life. Romance stories are also fantasy, after all.

New Milton is my favorite summer town, but this novella shows that it’s also quite delightful in the winter. This is a fantastic cozy holiday story that will warm you up even in the midst of January.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
