[Un]Common Ground by Erica Abbott and Pol Robinson is one of those charming romances that we need, if only to escape from the not so nice year (2020) we are living through right now. It is about an unlikely couple who are attracted to each other in spite of their differences.
This book has it all. We have a hard-nosed business woman/ice queen who is secretly a romantic at heart, and a young woman whose mission in life is to help people and protect the environment. Add in a business deal that puts the two main characters on opposite sides, two meddlesome, matchmaking mothers, a stray dog with soulful eyes, and a flock of baby goats, and you have the perfect recipe for a lovely, lighthearted and heartwarming novel.
This is a fairly short book, so it is an easy and quick read. The characters are easy to fall in love with, and the setting is absolutely gorgeous and well-described. The story itself will leave you in a happy mood. I know it did for me. If you need a book that will brighten your day, then this is the one for you.
It is with great sadness that I must mention Erica Abbott passed away July 4, 2020, just a few weeks before this novel was published. This is her last literary gift to us, her readers. My thoughts are with her family and friends as they grieve her loss. I know that Ms. Abbott will live on in their hearts just as her words and stories will keep her alive in ours.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bella Books for an honest review.
