Review: Love Accidentally by Sarah Pekkanen

Love Accidentally by Sarah Pekkanen

Publisher: Washington Square Press 
Pages: 40 
Format: nookbook
Buy the Book: Amazon 

Goodreads:  Ilsa Brown wasn’t expecting a little, injured dog to lead her to the love of her life. But within months of their first meeting on a street corner in L.A., she and Grif, the dog’s owner, are engaged. Things between them are so blissful that Ilsa is stunned by the tension that erupts during their visit to Chicago to meet his parents, where she discovers that Grif’s old girlfriend, Elise, is still woven into his family. What Ilsa needs to know before she can walk down the aisle is whether Elise is still in Grif’s heart, too. Featuring a character from Sarah Pekkanen’s original eBook short story All Is Bright, Love, Accidentally is surprising and heartfelt. It’s a story about taking chances and choosing hope, and discovering what it means to love someone—and to let go of someone you love.

Kritters Thoughts:  Short stories are very different from complete novels in that the author must get to the point quickly and then end it quickly.  As I knew I already was a fan of Sarah Pekkanen, it was a joy to read something different from her.  

The story begins with a young woman headed out on a second date that she isn't too excited about, she comes across a young man and sparks fly immediately, but he has an ex-girlfriend who is still in his family's life.  I enjoyed the real struggle that each couple has as they come together and discover the other's past and if they are willing to live with any or all of the baggage.  

A sweet short story that I would recommend to readers who are new to Pekkanen or those who are already fans!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel 
    (or a full length version!)
