When Angelita's father shows up in her shop the day she's supposed to go on vacation, she changes her plans and spends two weeks in the North Carolina mountains to think things through. He has a business proposition for her that she's not at all crazy about. While in the mountains Angelita meets the cabin owner's son, Jesse. Can Jesse help her with the situation with her father before things turn illegal, all while falling in love?
This was a cute romance story. What I loved, aside from the main plot about Angelita and Jesse, was that there were a couple subplots, which kept the book interesting! Both Angelita and Jessie, and Kerri Ann and Bryce and great chemistry. I also enjoyed reading about the shoes Angelita designed.
I think Christy Hayes needs to look into writing for Harlequin, or rather Harlequin needs to look into her. Her romance was much less formulaic but at the same time captured situations that Harlequin readers like to read about. Hayes would be a breath of fresh air for that publishing company.
If you like romances, then Shoe Strings is definitely worth the $2.99 it is right now for Nook and Kindle. You won't regret this quick, classic, lighthearted romance.
PS: How awesome are the shoes on the cover? I wouldn't have paired them with black hose, but I love them and I want them.
