I was pretty surprised at just how much I enjoyed this book.
Mo moved up to Grundy, Alaska in order to escape her overbearing hippy parents. She had expected to live quietly in a small cabin while figuring out exactly what she wanted to do with her life. However, quiet does not describe what she discovers in Alaska. Instead, she finds herself working as the cook in a local diner and verbally sparring with the town grouch, Cooper, on a daily basis.
It's rare when a book can have me laughing out loud, but this one had me doing just that several times. The main character, Mo, had some really great inner dialog and her interactions with Cooper were hilarious. The only downside was that there was a lot of build up surrounding Mo and Cooper impending relationship, but the way they got together was more of a fizzle than a pop.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more from this series.
