I really enjoyed this story! The characters, although sometimes predictable, were so relatable and came to life. I‘ll accept the cheesy happy ending, because let‘s face it who doesn‘t love when it all works out?! I also love that this was written before the Konmari explosion, it‘s much easier to appreciate the decluttering without all the glitz. Book 23 in 2021
