Zach Resnick is looking to settle down from his nomadic lifestyle and goes back to his childhood hometown. He’s looking for some much needed peace and quiet but he ends up staying in a full house with more distractions than respite. Ellie Marx is his biggest diversion, she turns anything and everything into a reason for a party or celebration and he’s just looking for some peace. Liberty Heights is much as he remembers it with a few very pleasant changes, perhaps it’s time to make some new memories with some old acquaintances.
Elle Druskin returns readers to the almost Rockwellian setting of Liberty Heights where the neighbors are eccentric and while life may not be picture perfect it certainly appears that way. Zach Resnick is a fantastically complicated leading man. He is a man who has seen too much in his career as a successful news correspondent looking to relive the innocence of his childhood and settle into suburban life. He doesn’t want complications and after living his life for so long out of a suitcase who can blame him. It is fascinating to see how he deals with Ellie sneaking slowly into his heart. Ellie Marx is a ball of energy and so kind-hearted that it is basically impossible not to fall in love with her. She goes out of her way to do little things for everyone while planning big things to bring happiness to everyone’s life. She’s just a ball of energy and good will. I enjoyed the first book in this series and it was wonderful catching up with what felt like old friends and I cannot wait to read the next in the series. If you are looking for a great break from the everyday this is a fantastic pick for you as the people of Liberty Height’s leave you with a big smile on your face.
Ellie Marx celebrates anything and everything. Zach Resnick wants peace and quiet. With both stuck in the same house, it's a collision course that just might lead to love.
This is the second in the The Liberty Heights series and needs to be read in order. Book one is titled Animal Crackers.
